South Africa reach semi-finals

New Delhi: The two teams that will play in the semi-finals of the ICC ODI World Cup being played in India have been confirmed. First the Indian team made its place with seven consecutive wins and now Pakistan’s historic win over New Zealand gave the other team the ticket for the second team. In a do-or-die match, Pakistan kept its semi-final hopes alive by achieving a fascinating victory against New Zealand on the basis of Fakhar Zaman’s stormy century.

The New Zealand team scored a huge score of 401 runs for 6 wickets. Rachin Ravindra scored the third century of the tournament for the team, while returning captain Kane Williamson scored 95 runs. Apart from this, Glenn Phillips scored a fast 41 runs.

Pakistan’s opener Fakhar Zaman scored a century off just 81 balls with 11 sixes and 8 fours. In 25.3 overs, when the match was stopped for the second time due to rain, the team’s score was 201 runs at the loss of 1 wicket. The match could not be started after this and Pakistan won by 21 runs on the basis of Duckworth-Lewis rule.

South Africa enter semi-finals with Pakistan’s win

Pakistan registered a tremendous victory against New Zealand and the South African team benefited from it. Without entering the field, the team suddenly managed to make it to the semi-finals. The Proteas team, which has scored 12 points with 6 wins out of 7 so far, became the second team to make it to India in the second round. There will be a war between Australia, Pakistan, New Zealand and Afghanistan for the two seats that are vacant.
