South Africa beat Australia by 10 runs
Right then! The league games have ended at last! It is India vs New Zealand at Old Trafford, Manchester on Tuesday, 9th July, 2019 while on Thursday, 11th July, 2019, Australia clash with England at Edgbaston. Both games will start at 10.30 am local (0930 GMT) and there is a reserve day for both the games. Join us for the semi-finals. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Victorious South African captain, Faf du Plessis, is back on again. Admits that it is frustrating to have been waiting for so long for the last 5-6 weeks for such a performance. Is happy that the batsmen put runs on the board and the bowlers strutting their stuff, especially with the likes of Rabada getting back to form. On trying to figure what could have happened and what has happened, Faf puts it down to inconsistent cricket. Bluntly says that the team did not play its best cricket and the guys could not quite step up. On Australia bringing out the best in him, Faf smiles and says that he just loves playing Australia. On being asked to tip who could be the eventual winners, Faf says that India will be happy with South Africa's win and looking at New Zealand's form over the last 3 games, he expects an India-England final. On asked further to predict the tournament winner, du Plessis says that normally India and Australia play big games better than the rest, so he would go for one of those to win the final.
Australian skipper, Aaron Finch, says that in spite of the loss, Australia will take some positives in Alex Carey and David Warner's knocks. Admits that with the ball, they were either too full or too short. Praises Markram for taking the new ball advantage away from the Aussies. Adds that one more positive is that they managed to come close in spite of not playing their best cricket. Is tight-lipped on Usman Khawaja and Marcus Stoinis' fitness and says that an assessment will be done only in the morning. Smiles on the fact of meeting England in the semi-final and cheekily says that it will be a blockbuster, with the fans ready to 'welcome' the Aussies.
FAF DU PLESSIS HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. On his individual form, Faf says that he felt that he was hitting the ball well but could not quite get the big scores. Praises both the teams for putting in a splendid show and is happy that he can go home with some smile on his face. Says that today is the best example for youngsters on how to go about stuff if you are struggling. Praises Rassie van der Dussen for showing great maturity and hanging in there. On his cracking straight drive off Pat Cummins, du Plessis chuckles and says that normally he plays that shot to bowlers who bowl in the 130s but today he pulled it off. Is full of praise for the two retiring blokes - Tahir and Duminy - the former always keeping the dressing room in high spirits and the latter being a good role model of sportsmanship.
A good bowling performance by South Africa but they will feel they let it slip in the middle overs after having Australia 4 down. They somehow managed to hold their nerve with Kagiso Rabada picking up 3 wickets Phehlukwayo took 2. But the real effective bowler was Dwaine Pretorius, taking 2 of the biggest scalps - Smith and Warner. Please stay tuned for the presentation.
The duo of Warner and Carey started its innings cautiously but then slowly started to get the runs. They added 108 for the 5th wicket when Warner fell but Carey kept on going. He tried to hang around with the tail but eventually it was too much for him to do.
326 was never going to be easy to chase and the Aussies found that out pretty early. Captain Finch started the rut in the third over itself and then the middle order was blown apart. Usman Khawaja retired hurt as well, which made the chase even difficult. But out of nowhere, Warner found an able partner in Carey.
So the final four are sorted! India finish on top, hence take on New Zealand on Tuesday while Australia meet England on Thursday. But what a match this was. Aggregating 640 runs at an average of 40 per wicket. Almost went down to the wire, although at one stage, it looked like South Africa were all over Australia like a rash.

Andile Phehlukwayo To Nathan Lyon OUT!
OUT! Caught! That ends the game. SOUTH AFRICA WIN BY 10 RUNS. Andile takes the last wicket of the match. A length ball around off, Lyon gets down and mows a slog towards mid-wicket. But he finds Aiden Markram in the deep running to his left who completes an easy catch.

Andile Phehlukwayo To Jason Behrendorff
NOT OUT. Outside off, Behrendorff lofts it over mid off and hares back for the second. The throw is a good one to the keeper who disturbs the stumps and appeals. It is referred upstairs but replays show that Jason has used his long reach to stretch in.
Is that the end of the game? De Kock seems to be confident that Jason Behrendorff is short. Referred upstairs. Replays show that the big man has used his height to get in.

Kagiso Rabada To Usman Khawaja OUT!
OUT! BOWLED! Khawaja has played that back onto the stumps! Usman stands there in remorse while Rabada smiles. It is not a wry smile, it is just a genuine one. He too, agrees that Khawaja is a bit unlucky. A full toss outside off, Uzzie gets across and looks to paddle but hits it from the bottom half of the bat onto the stumps! Well tried, brave lad.

Who is coming out to bat? It is Usman Khawaja. Australia having one last coughing shot. Is there anything still left in the game? The pilot will have to pilot this innings (He is an air force pilot, remember?) No singles, because he cannot run. Just fours and sixes. 9 boundaries should do the job...

Chris Morris To Alex Carey OUT!
OUT! Caught in the deep! Fighting knock from Carey comes to an end. He tried very hard to take Australia home but the task is too steep. A cutter outside off, Carey backs away and tries to carve it over cover but finds Aiden Markram at sweeper, who comes running in and takes a diving catch! The entire Protean unit mobs him. That surely should be the game? 51 more needed from 28 balls.

Dwaine Pretorius To David Warner OUT!
OUT! Caught! That is a stunner from Chris Morris and is that the game? What a catch. A length ball, around middle, Warner stays leg side of the ball and looks to heave it through the on side. But the ball hits the inner half of the bat and hence, he does not get much elevation. That shot was on because mid on was brought up just before the first ball was about to be bowled. The ball then goes wide of mid on but Chris Morris flies to his left and takes it two-handed! He then gets up and stands with a broad smile with the crowd applauding. Excellent catch and now, time to applaud the batsman. Terrific knock, albeit in a losing cause. End of a 108-run stand, 99 more needed from 65 balls.
Dwaine Pretorius is back on. 5-1-27-1 so far.

Chris Morris To David Warner
FOUR! 17th ODI ton for Warner, 3rd in this World Cup! Gets there in a fortuitous manner though. On a length outside off, David looks to push but suddenly the ball scoots up, surprises him and he looks to fend it. Can do nothing about it and luckily for him, the ball goes off the outside edge through the vacant slip cordon, to the third man fence! Runs across to the other end, takes his helmet off and then leaps in celebration. Kisses the badge on his helmet and out comes the smile.

However, the Victorian came charging across and Warner set off once again. Kagiso Rabada fields the ball and returns a good throw to de Kock who collects it to his left and parries it behind onto the stumps! He appeals and it is referred upstairs. Replays find that Stoinis is gone. The 62-run stand is broken.
