Comprehensive win by the Proteas
Ireland represented a potential* banana-skin for the Proteas, especially after their win over the West Indies, but proved no match for a rampant SA side
Led by tons by Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis, the Proteas were always in charge of the match after posting 411/4 - the second highest ever Cricket World Cup total.
The Proteas move to 6 points - level with pool-toppers India who enjoy a superior run rate.
Ireland aren't out of quarter-final contention yet, but will need to up their game considerably in their remaining fixtures
