The Netherlands team achieved a great victory in their match against South Africa. It is one of the biggest upsets in the ICC World Cup history. Netherlands openers Vikramjit and Max O’Dowd did not provide a good start with Vikramjit scoring just two runs off 16 balls. In addition, all the top-order batsmen of the team did not perform very well. In the match of 43 overs, it looked difficult to give a huge target to the unbeaten team but captain Scott Edwards made a good start.

Moreover, South Africa’s bowlers gave the Netherlands batsmen a tough time. The bowling of Ngidi, Marco, and Rabada was outstanding. He led them to score just 140 runs and took two wickets for each. But at the end of the innings, South Africa created problems for themselves by giving the Netherlands team a chance to score more runs.

It was not an easy target but it was not impossible for them due to the performance of South Africa in the previous matches. But the Netherlands team came out with a spirit to show themselves apart. The South African openers provided a 36-run opening. At the end of the eighth over, Quinton de Kock was out.

No player scored even a half-century in the whole inning. Heinrich went back to the pavilion by the Van Beek ball. David came and played shots for the win but his 43 runs could not help out for the team. The top-order of the team failed miserably.

After David Miller’s dismissal, the hopes of a win looked dashed. Marco Jansen managed just nine runs from 25 shots, followed by Gerald Coetzee who added just 22 runs. But even Maharaj’s 40 runs did not work for South Africa and the whole team was out before the 43th over. It was the biggest defeat for South Africa after a wonderful performance in previous matches.
