Sa vs Ned: Netherlands achieve a surprising victory over South Africa

ICC World Cup 2023 faces a major upset in a match between Sa vs Ned today at HPCA Stadium. Netherland Team Stun South Africa in a Remarkable Upset.


South Africa had a rocky beginning, finding themselves at 44-4 in just 11.2 overs, with key batsmen like Bavuma, Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen, and Aidan Markram all back in the pavilion.

Scott Edwards’ Netherlands team maintained their dominance, keeping the pressure on South Africa throughout their pursuit of the 246-run target.

Although David Miller, a destructive batter for South Africa, offered a glimmer of hope, his innings was cut short by a delivery from Logan van Beek. South Africa was eventually bowled out for just 207 runs.

In their own innings, the Netherlands faced a similar collapse, with a score of 50-4 in 15.1 overs and wickets falling at regular intervals.

However, their captain, Scott Edwards, played a determined innings, scoring 78 off 69 balls with 11 boundaries while batting at number seven. His efforts helped the Netherlands post a competitive total of 245 runs in 43 overs, with support from Roelof van der Merwe (29 off 19) and Aryan Dutt (23 off 9).

This unexpected loss had a significant impact on South Africa’s net run rate (NRR). South Africa had previously won their first two matches against Sri Lanka and Australia by margins of 102 and 134 runs, respectively.

In their upcoming matches, South Africa will face England, who recently suffered a major upset against Afghanistan in the World Cup, at the Wankhede Stadium on October 21. Meanwhile, the Netherlands will take on Sri Lanka on the same date in Lucknow.
