It’s not often that the Australians click late in the World Cup events. The ICC tournaments and Australia carry a long-standing fruitful partnership, but this time it’s going all against them. In the two games of the ICC World Cup 2023, Australia lost both that too with some distance.
In the opening game, India hunted down Australia, and yesterday, it was South Africa, which pulled all its strings to dismantle the mighty Aussies.
On the tacky surface in Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium, where everyone thought 250 to be a good reputable total, the Proteas went on to amass 311 runs in their quota of 5o overs. Wicketkeeper batter Quinton de Kock scored his second consecutive century of the World Cup 2023 and Aiden Markram contributed with a nice half-century, while other batters too made their efforts with small yet viable contributions.
It was always going to be about the chase, as South Africa had amassed a massive total on a slowish track, which has a history of aiding bowlers to a larger extent. History shows the rise of Australians in high-pressure situations, but this time they all crumbled one by one.
Starting with the scalp of Mitchell Marsh, South Africa’s wicket-taking spree went to David Warner and then Steve Smith. By the time Aussies could recollect anything, they were three wickets down. To make things worse, they lost three more wickets in the next seven overs at a score of 60 runs. Australia was six down at a score of 70 runs.
By this time the five-times World Cup champions had got the indication that this game was far from their reach and the efforts to salvage their net run rate had begun. Marnus Labuschagne and Mitchell Starc put up a partnership to reduce the winning margin for the South Africans, but it didn’t take long for the Proteas to bowl out Australia at a score of 177 runs and win their second game of the World Cup 2023.
The win fetched by South Africa got them two more rating points in the World Cup 2023 Points Table Updated after the game. Owing to the massive win by 134 runs, South Africa took a leap and climbed up to the top of the ICC World Cup 2023 Points Table.
