South Africa beat Bangladesh by four runs to become the first Super-8 qualifier of ICC T20 World Cup 2024

Talking about the SA vs BAN match, the South African cricket team scored 113/6 in 20 overs, having opted to bat first at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York after winning the toss against Bangladesh.

It was South Africa’s lowest score in World T20 history. By early 2007, they had managed 116 runs for nine wickets in 20 overs against India. In response, Bangladesh could only manage 109 runs for seven wickets in 20 overs and lost the game to the Proteas side by just four runs. They have now qualified for the Super-8 phase.

Bangladesh needed 11 runs to win the match in the last over. South African captain Aiden Markram showed faith in Keshav Maharaj and handed him the ball to defend the final 11-run over. He bowled the first ball wide and now the target was 10 runs off six balls. Mahmudullah then fired towards square leg off a Maharaj delivery and ran for a run.

Now, Bangladesh needed five runs from five balls to win the match against South Africa. On the second ball, Jaker Ali swung the bat hard and stole two runs. Now the target was seven runs in four balls. In the third ball, Maharaj got Markram to catch Zaker Ali and Bangladesh needed seven runs in three balls. Maharaj bowled the fourth ball outside off, giving one run.

Well, then the target became six runs off the last two balls, and Mahmudullah got out on the fifth ball, which was a full toss bowled by Maharaj. Now, the Bangladesh team needed six runs off the last ball, and Taskin Ahmed tried to play a great shot on the last ball which was also a full toss, but the pacer could only steal one run, and that’s how Maharaj took his team to victory.

Virender Sehwag criticizes Bangladesh for missed chances against South Africa

After the match, former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag criticized the Bangladesh player for not being able to finish the match, even though Proteas spinner Maharaj gave them many chances to win the game. Sehwag was especially critical of the experienced Mahmudullah for not finishing the match, which was on a plate. He also expected Taskin to throw a six-pitch complete toss, but he disappointed them as well.

Virender Sehwag said on Cricbuzz: “Spinner has given a full toss to the batsman. He has given a full toss to the prepared batsman to end the match. What could be a better gift than this? Do not do this. The batsman, who came to bat with the last ball, also received a full delivery. He also received a gift, but he did not accept it.

I can only say that Bangladesh made the same mistake that Pakistan made against India. Did Bangladesh not watch that match in New York? They were chasing 119 runs. But Bangladesh were chasing 113 runs. They made only 109 runs while chasing 113 runs. Looking at the wicket, I didn’t think that 113 runs shouldn’t have been scored.”
