‘If you are not switched on…’ – SA coach reflects on shocking defeat


In a rain-affected match on Tuesday, the Netherlands rallied from a precarious 140 for 7 to reach a total of 245 for eight. They then dismissed South Africa for 207 in 42.5 overs, marking the second significant upset of the tournament. The first surprise came on Sunday when Afghanistan defeated defending champions England by 69 runs in Delhi. Notably, this 38-run victory was Netherlands’ first triumph against a Test-playing nation in their ODI World Cup history.
