South Africa seem to have found a new nemesis in World Cups as the Netherlands got the better of them yet again in the ICC marquee tournament on Tuesday, October 17. Playing at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala, the Dutch side led by their captain Scott Edwards caused a huge upset as they defeated the Proteas by 38 runs to throw the tournament wide open.

Though the loss can have a deflating effect on the Proteas, their position on the points table still remains third and can be a motivating factor going ahead in the tournament. The Temba Bavuma-led side had stunningly started its campaign with two consecutive wins over Sri Lanka and Australia but a shocking loss at the hands of the Netherlands has derailed their campaign.

On the other hand, the win has not only boosted the morale of the Dutch players but has also helped them open their account on the points table. The Scott Edwards-led side now has two points to its credit and is above the Lankan Lions on the ladder. The Indian team is still occupying the apex position on the table with three wins in three games and a Net Run Rate (NRR) of 1.821. The Rohit Sharma-led side can consolidate its position if it manages to beat Bangladesh in the forthcoming clash.
