177 (40.5/50)
311/7 (50.0/50)
South Africa beat Australia by 134 runs
Right then, yet another exciting day in the 2023 World Cup and we have witnessed yet another commanding victory from South Africa and in their last four outings against Australia (including this one), they have won by 100 or more runs - won by 134 runs here, 5th ODI in Jo'burg won by 122 runs, 4th ODI in Centurion won by 164 runs and 3rd ODI in Potchefstroom won by 111 runs. Anyway, plenty more cricketing action to follow as next up New Zealand take on Bangladesh at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Friday, the 13th of October. That game will begin at 2 pm IST (8.30 am GMT) but you can certainly join us for the early build-up to that game. Till then, take care and goodbye!
The skipper of South Africa, Temba Bavuma says that 311 was above par and feels that 290-300 would have been a par score. Mentions that he is glad that they lost the toss as they wanted to chase. Feels that his inning was scratchy and credits Quinton de Kock for the way he batted. Mentions that it was a near-perfect game. Reckons that they could have finished well with the bat. States that the bowlers have been under slack but they dominated the Powerplay and in the middle phase as well. Also says that it is important to acknowledge the batting effort. Feels that character was pleasing to see. Ends by saying that despite the win, they want to find ways to get better and better as a team.
Australia's captain, Pat Cummins starts by saying that Quinton de Kock batted really well and adds that they could not get a breakthrough. Feels that it was a chasable target but it was hard work with the bat at night as it zipped around more than it did during the day. Shares that if they want to be challenged in this competition, it is important to find a way in all conditions. Feels that there is not much that needs to be said as everyone is hurt. Adds that they will look to regroup and turn up for the next game at this venue. Ends by saying that he cannot pinpoint but there are a few things that need to be tidied up.
Time for the captain's interviews...
Earlier in the game, Pat Cummins won the toss and opted to field first on a track that no one was really sure how it was going to play. This decision did not work out well as the Aussies were made to toil in the field and didn't pick up a single wicket in the first 10 overs. Quinton de Kock carried his form from the previous game and gave his side the perfect start. There were runs for South Africa throughout the batting order and even only Aiden Markram was the other batter than de Kock to get more than 50 runs, the valuable contributions meant they breached the 300-run mark yet again. Australia weren't as much lackluster with the ball as they were in the field and dropped more than a few crucial chances. Glenn Maxwell was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up a couple of wickets and was miserly as well. They did pull things back slightly in the death but did concede an above-par total. Coming to the chase, it was just one-sided and for the first time since 1992, Australia have lost both their opening games of a World Cup.
Quinton de Kock is the Player of the Match for his fantastic knock of 109 runs from 106 balls. He says that it is a great win and adds that they assessed the conditions well. Feels that coming into his game, it was important to stick to our strengths. Shares that he and Temba Bavuma assess the conditions upfront and convey the message to the rest of the guys. Mentions that they thought that the score was above par. Adds that since he has played for Lucknow in the Indian T20 League, he knew that the wicket gets harder to bat in the second innings irrespective of the dew. States that it has been only two games so far and it is important not to get too ahead of themselves.
AUSTRALIA HAVE BEEN TIMID - These are words used by former skipper Aaron Finch and surprisingly it seems accurate given how they have played in these first two games. It was a very sedate start from openers Mitchell Marsh and David Warner with the former just itching to get a big hit away. Marsh didn't get his timing right and fell early after which Warner too gave away his wicket. The likes of Steven Smith and Josh Inglis soon followed them back to the hut and Smith in particular would be disappointed as he started off in fine fashion. Then came a big moment in the game which might not have mattered much but will certainly be talked about for at least a few days. Marcus Stoinis was knicked off down the leg side but seemed to have the glove with which the ball made contact off the handle of the bat but a frozen frame on the replays gave the indication that it might be in contact and the third umpire gave him out. There was one partnership between Marnus Labuschagne and Mitchell Starc but by then, Australia had already lost the game. In the end, they didn't even manage to cross the 200-run mark for the second game running and have their work cut out for the future games.
South Africa will be ecstatic with that win over the Aussies and quickly, the Proteas are becoming one of the teams to beat in this competition. They had the runs on the board and then under lights, the frontline pacers made excellent use of the new ball. Lungi Ngidi in particular was brilliant up top and gave nothing away and Marco Jansen complemented him well and even got the first breakthrough for his side. Ngidi soon got into the wickets and got rid of David Warner. From there, South Africa were relentless and Kagiso Rabada came in and picked up a couple of quick wickets to press home the advantage. Rabada went on to pick up three wickets in total. They had the opposition reeling at 70/6 and were always a wicket away from clinching victory. They had to wait for a bit but eventually, everyone got into the wickets column and rounded off a sensational victory.
ANOTHER HUGE WIN FOR SOUTH AFRICA AND THEY ARE LIGHTING UP THE WORLD CUP! They have thrashed five-time champions Australia by 134 runs and their stranglehold on Australia in ODIs in recent times gets even tighter with a fourth straight 100+ run win. The Proteas also now join the likes of New Zealand, Pakistan and India on four points with two wins from two games. As for Australia, yet another disappointing outing and they now join the likes of Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Netherlands with two losses to start their campaign.

Tabraiz Shamsi To Josh Hazlewood OUT!
OUT! IN THE AIR AND GONE! Tabraiz Shamsi wraps up the innings! Offers flight and bowls it full, on off, Josh Hazlewood gets down on one knee and goes for a slog across the line. Does not get the proper connection and skies it high in the air. The ball goes only as far as short mid-wicket where Kagiso Rabada settles under the skier and completes the catch comfortably. Australia have succumbed to another defeat. South Africa win by a massive margin of 134 runs!

Starc does well to keep his balance and not fall on the stumps as the ball rolls away to the vacant mid-wicket region. The batters do eventually cross for a leg bye but a mandatory concussion check will now follow as Starc looks a bit rattled. Hopefully, he is fine.

Kagiso Rabada To Marcus Stoinis OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT BEHIND! A good decision to review by South Africa but it's a debatable decision by the third umpire! Kagiso Rabada is having a great night here as he has his third now. This is bowled into the wicket, around leg, Marcus Stoinis gets cramped for room and tries to get inside the line to get a late flick. There is a sound as the ball goes past the bat and the keeper dives full length to complete the catch. They appeal but the umpire turns down the appeal. South Africa go for the review, not with conviction. The UltraEdge shows a spike as the ball makes contact with the handle of the bat. The bottom hand though is off the handle and is not touching the top hand but the third umpire thinks differently. The decision is overturned. Stoinis is in complete disbelief. He stays in the middle for a while, confirming and reconfirming with the on-field umpires. The replays get rolled again, this time though to only check if the catch was cleanly taken by de Kock. It's done clinically and Marcus departs shaking his head. Definitely a contentious decision. Australia are down and nearing yet another big loss. Stoinis, in the dressing room, is still having a look at the footage. The more we get to see the replays, it becomes clear that the bottom hand was very much away from the top hand.

Tosses it up, on the leg stump, Glenn Maxwell gets on the front foot and tries to clip it away on the leg side. He does not manage to smother the turn and pays the price. The ball dips on him and spins away enough to get a leading edge. The ball lobs straight back to Keshav Maharaj who completes the catch low to his left. Australia are in dire straits at the moment.

OUT! BOWLED'EM! Peach of a delivery by Kagiso Rabada and Australia are in all sorts of trouble!

Kagiso Rabada To Steven Smith OUT!
OUT! LBW! An appeal for LBW and only the bowler and keepers seem interested. Quinton de Kock is quite confident and Temba Bavuma does opt for the review here. Kagiso Rabada bowls it on a good length around middle and leg and angles it in. Steven Smith is late on the tuck and gets rapped on the pads. No need for UltraEdge and Ball Tracking comes up with three reds. Smith is stood there flabergasted but the Proteas rejoice as they get the big wicket via a review that was taken more in hope than in confidence. Australia are three down inside the first 10 overs.

Lungi Ngidi To David Warner OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! Straight to the man and that is a very soft dismissal for David Warner. Lungi Ngidi bowls it a bit short and a bit wide, there to be put away. Warner stands tall and looks to slap it away square on the off side but gets no timing on it whatsoever. The ball goes uppishly and straight into the bread basket of Rassie van der Dussen at cover-point. The catch is held and it will be a wicket-maiden for Ngidi in his 50th ODI. Australia in early trouble here.

Marco Jansen To Mitchell Marsh OUT!
OUT! CAUGHT! More misery for Mitchell Marsh as Marco Jansen draws first blood for South Africa. Jansen gets his radar correct this time as he bowls it on a hard length around the top of off, angling it across. Marsh stands tall and looks to slog it across the line. Marsh loses his shape and ends up getting a leading edge high around mid off. The Proteas skipper Temba Bavuma settles himself underneath the ball and pouches it safely.
