South Africa vs Afghanistan

South Africa then took two Afghan wickets before another rain delay, after which they forced a collapse of five wickets for eight runs in 29 balls, taking advantage of Afghanistan's penchant for playing their shots. He celebrated all four of his wickets with the same exuberance demonstrated in each of his 343 previous global scalps.

An extra run added to their target by the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method was never likely to inconvenience the South Africa innings, played in bright evening sunshine, and when Afghanistan's star leg-spinner Rashid came into the attack for the ninth over they were 25-0.

Quinton de Kock (68) and Hashim Amla (41*) then ate a chunk out of the target with South Africa's first 100-run partnership of the World Cup before Phehlukwayo, promoted to No 3, finished off the job. "We lost the toss so we did not take responsibility enough and that was the difference", Naib said, reported PTI.

'But some players really just need runs beside their name, which really gives them confidence.

It will be a big test for South Africa who will have to be at their very best if they are going to win.

Afghanistan are yet to score a point and remain rock bottom, with a lack of runs costing them once again as they slumped to a fourth defeat in a row ahead of Tuesday's meeting with England at Old Trafford. "It came out well and I'm really pleased that I played my part for the team", said Tahir after being named man of the match.

The Koreans who were also pummeled 4-0 in their opening game against France tried hard to pull level but they were denied. The top two teams from each of the six groups and the four best third-place teams will qualify for the round of 16.

Du Plessis did not want to get too carried away with the victory just yet though, but was ready to take the confidence gained from Saturday into this week's all-important clash with an in-form New Zealand team in Birmingham. Forget the opposition. It's the stuff that you can control yourself, and there was energy in the bowlers.

Imran Tahir was the destroyer-in-chief, striking with his first ball - a pitch-perfect googly which castled Noor Ali Zadran - and finishing with four wickets. The other thing that will be crucial is that if South Africa do get the upper hand early on, then they can not take their foot off the pedal and give New Zealand a way back into it. "Today a really good step in the right direction", he said.

"We have a lot of batsmen in the team". From what I'm hearing from the physios is that that will happen; they're pretty confident.

"We've showed glimpses before today, but we've mostly played inconsistent, bad cricket, so we needed to be solid today, it was an opportunity to put a peg in the ground".

"I knew I wouldn't get it to turn but I tried to vary it and get the batsmen to make mistakes".

Afghanistan, which has lost all four matches and remains last in the 10-team standings, won't forget its first-ever one-day worldwide against South Africa.
