Netherlands vs South Africa World Cup 2023 Highlights

South Africa, after winning the toss, chose to bowl first in a rain-interrupted match, due to which the overs were reduced to 43. The Netherlands came to bat first, and in front of South Africa’s bowling attack, the Dutch batters started to fall. In fact, the Netherlands were 140/7 once, but it was Dutch team captain Scott Edwards who showed resilience, and with a sublime fifty, he took the team to a defendable total of 245 runs. Scott Edwards finished as the highest run scorer from the Netherlands; he smashed 78 runs off 69 balls.

South Africa’s opening while chasing the target of 246 runs lost their openers quite early later, and batters afterwards followed them. South Africa was four wickets down for just 44 runs later. Heinrich Klassen and David Miller tried to stabilize the situation, but the Netherlands bowlers didn’t give the Proteas the chance to make a comeback, and after wiping out South Africa’s team, they registered their first victory in the tournament. They stopped South Africa at 207 runs, winning the match by 38 runs.

Netherlands vs South Africa World Cup 2023 Highlights: Player Of The Match

The Netherlands’ skipper, Scott Edwards, was named player of the match for his unbeaten innings of 78 runs that helped the Netherlands put a respectable score on the board.

“Proud of the group. Putting in that performance and being able to play my part is nice,” Edwards, named player-of-the-match, said.When we came into the tournament we wanted to have a chance at playing semi-finals and if you want to do that you’ve got to beat teams. Obviously South Africa are probably one of the favourites the way they are playing so it is a big win for us.”
