Asian newcomer terrorise South Africa - T20 World Cup

SUTTON, U.K. - June 15, 2024 - PRLog -- South Africa achieved a thrilling victory in the match against Nepal. The game was a nail-biter, with the momentum swinging back and forth until the final ball.

The spectators' anxious expressions indicated their belief that Nepal was on the verge of winning. Nepal needed two runs off the last ball to secure a win, and scoring one run would have resulted in a tie and a super over.

As they attempted a run, a delay of just one second cost Nepal a historic victory. The run-out by South Africa at that crucial moment will always be remembered by Nepal. This intense back-and-forth is characteristic of T20 match

A deserving defeat for South Africa

South Africa, a powerhouse in the world of cricket, was expected to lose this match. It would have been a major upset at the 2024 T20 World Cup if Nepal, a newcomer to cricket, had defeated South Africa.

The T20 tournament this year did not favour the batters, resulting in low-scoring matches. Like previous matches, most teams preferred to bat second, and Nepal was no exception.

Therefore, Nepal won the toss and elected to field first against South Africa. Despite their lack of experience, Nepal's bowlers managed to stifle the South African batters, much to everyone's surprise.
