MAN-OF-THE-MATCH

SA captain AB de Villiers received the best player accolade for scoring 99 runs off 82 balls.

12 Mar 10:47

QUOTES:

"We bowled well until 44-45 overs," said UAE captain Mohammad Tauqir. "In batting it was a good knock by Swapnil Patil. We batted almost 50 overs so it is a big positive. It has given us a lot of confidence. They have got some amazing bowlers. We are not used to playing this kind of bowlers. A lot of confidence almost playing out 50 overs."

SA skipper AB de Villiers: "Very happy about today. It was hard work. They made it difficult for us. I was happy with the way we fought throughout. I won't say it is simple, but I try to keep it simple. Not always easy to play against a team not as good as you usually play. It was important for me to stick to my game-plans. It's never a given that you will make the quarter-final so a big moment for us."

SOUTH AFRICA'S PERMUTATIONS:

Following a likely Australian victory over Scotland, Sri Lanka will finish third in their pool, which means they will face South Africa in the quarter-finals in Sydney next Wednesday.

12 Mar 10:39

The South Africans are safely through to the quarter-finals after finishing second in Group B. They will in all likelihood face Sri Lanka in Sydney in the quarter-finals next Wednesday.

There are still some unanswered questions though. Will they persist with Quinton de Kock? Will Kyle Abbott return to the line-up? Who do you leave out then if Abbott returns? Will Behardien keep his place in the side....?

Also, South African fans will be worried about the toss in their knockout games. Can they chase a total down batting second?

12 Mar 10:34
RESULT: South Africa win by 146 runs

  • South Africa win by 146 runs - AB de Villiers is the Man of the Match. South Africa batted well to get to 341 and their bowlers together with good fielding restricted the UAE to 195. They still need to decide who that 5th and 6th bowler will be. I guess we will see that in Sydney on the 18th of March when they meet Sri Lanka.

  • South Africa 341/6 after 50 overs. - The UAE did well to keep South Africa to below 400. They got wickets at critical stages to keep things at bay. They removed AB on 99 and one feels it may well have been carnage, if he was there at the end. This will be a difficult chase.

  • 37

    Wicket: Naveed returns to the attack. He starts with an off side wide. WICKET!!! Miller drags it on as he goes for the pull. He will not be happy with that and there was no foot movement. Naveed has looked good against the lefties today. D Miller b Naveed 49. JP joins AB.
