0 2

South Africa recorded an easy 190 runs win over New Zealand in their world cup cricket fixture played at Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium in Pune yesterday.

Earlier everyone though this match will be a close battle as two top teams battle it out each other but finally it was a one sided affair as South Africa dominated the game from the beginning and outclassed Kiwis in all three departments convincingly. South Africa made challenging total of 357 for 4 wickets in 50 overs while Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen hit two fine tons and Kiwis chasing a target of 358 were bowled out for 167 in 35 .3 overs. Leg spinner Keshav Maharaj was the pick of the bowlers taking 4 for 46 while paceman Marco Jansen played a good supporting role to take 3 for 31. Rassie van der Dussen was named Man of the Match.

South Africa playing seven matches now earned 12 points equal with India from 6 matches. But with higher net run rate South Africa is on top while Australia and New Zealand are in third and fourth places of the points table.

New Zealand opted to field first, but their strategy didn’t quite pan out as the South Africans displayed a strong approach in building their innings, surpassing the 350-run mark. Centurions de Kock and Van der Dussen led the way with impressive innings, with David Miller contributing 53 runs in 30 balls (2 fours and 4 sixes). De Kock the experienced left-hander in fine form, scored 114 off 116 balls with 10 fours and 3 sixes, while Van der Dussen hit 133 off 118 balls (9 fours and 5 sixes). The pair formed a remarkable 200-run partnership for the second wicket.

Paceman Tim Southee was the only successful bowler for New Zealand, taking 2 wickets but conceding 77 runs in his 10-over spell, while Trent Boult took 1 for 49.
