WI vs SA T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8, Highlights: SA prevail in humdinger to qualify for semis; WI knocked out

South Africa have prevailed in a thriller, not for the first time in the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup but this win will be the sweetest for them as it has taken them to the semi-finals. Roston Chase's all-round performance went in vain as the Proteas edged out the co-hosts West Indies.

WI vs SA T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8, Highlights: SA prevail in humdinger to qualify for semis; WI knocked out

West Indies vs South Africa, T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 Live Updates: England are in the semi-finals. Notwithstanding their losses to Australia in the group stage or South Africa in Super 8, they are very much on the course of a title defence at the T20 World Cup. T20 World Cup defies the nature and structure of an ICC event of a team having to be consistent or peaking at the right moment to win the title. You just have to win the right games, convincingly, not all, a handful few and you'll be there and thereabouts.

Now look at South Africa, who probably have defied their history of messing it up in close games to win all six so far and one loss could knock them out as none of their wins have been convincing, with a sizeable margin. Even in Super 8, the USA ran them close, England almost chased it down the other day out of nowhere and hence, the Proteas will need that luck the most on Sunday evening in Antigua against the hosts West Indies. A win will do, margins don't matter. Similarly for the West Indies, the loss to England threatened to derail their campaign but a big win against the USA and now they find themselves on the cusp of a semi-final spot.

    Rain stops, covers removed but a lot of puddles

    The rain has stopped and the covers have been removed but since the shower was heavy, a puddle has formed and the umpires are not rushing. The drainage in Antigua is fantastic and the teams should be getting ready.

    WI vs SA Live: Another one goes, SA crawling back

    A left-arm orthodox bowler's dream. Pitching it on middle and off and getting it to turn away just enough to get the batter squared and then stumped by Quinton de Kock, it was a beauty from Keshav Maharaj and Rovman Powell had no idea as to what really happened.

  • 7:16 AM (IST) Posted by Anshul Gupta

  • 6:37 AM (IST) Posted by Anshul Gupta

    South Africa win toss, opt to field

  • 6:06 AM (IST) Posted by Anshul Gupta

    WI vs SA pitch report, Antigua

    67m and 61m square boundaries and 74 metres down the ground. There will be consistent bounce and with this being an evening game, the ball is expected to skid through and come nicely onto the bat in both the innings. 

  • 6:02 AM (IST) Posted by Anshul Gupta

    West Indies find form after a blip

    It was a bad day at the office for the West Indies in their Super 8 opener against England but they came back rather strongly in their next match as the hosts flexed their muscles against the fellow co-hosts USA. A superior net run rate has kept them on course, but they need a win. So yeah, it is a knockout, we can remove the word virtual. But if it rains, South Africa might be the one who get to utilise the benefits, probably the first one.

  • 6:01 AM (IST) Posted by Anshul Gupta

    South Africa are unbeaten but they can't afford a slip-up

    South Africa and luck don't go hand-in-hand in ICC events. Net run rate and rain haven't helped South Africa's cause in several crunch games in World Cups come and gone before and one of those two reasons might come back to bite the Proteas hard this time around as well. Despite winning both their Super 8 encounters so far, South Africa could miss out on a spot in the semis on NRR, if they lose to the West Indies.
