Hobart: Rain hampered the crucial T-20 World Cup match in Hobart. After a long wait, the proceedings got underway. Zimbabwe won the toss and opted to bat first.
Rain interrupted play, so in the end, officials decided on a seven-overs encounter instead of nine overs. The Proteas needed to score 64 runs in seven overs.
Earlier, the South African bowlers were right on target, restricting Zimbabwe to 80 for five in nine overs. Due to rain, the match was reduced to seven overs
Both South African openers, Quinton de Kock and Bavuma, were on the field. In fact, de Kock was severe on the Zimbabwe bowlers and he played remarkable cricket. He hammered the opposition’s bowling all around the park. South Africa scored 51 runs in three overs but no result
The Proteas are unlucky once again. In the 1992 World Cup semi-final against England, almost the same story was repeated. History repeats itself again, and South Africa has to share a point with Zimbabwe. What a bad day for South Africa!
