    A great yorker from Rabada smashes into the stumps and South Africa win by 37 runs.

Morris was the pick of the bowlers with 4-27 but some of the other bowlers didn't have a good bowling performance again so they are going to have to bowl better if they want to proceed further in the tournament.
