South Africa avoided a late scare to register a deserving 18-run win over the United States of America in their first T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 match in North Sound on Wednesday, June 18. Quinton de Kock returned to form with a quickfire fifty to help the Proteas post a 194 total and then Kagiso Rabada took three big wickets to restrict the USA to 176. 

The Proteas continued their unbeaten run with their fifth consecutive win in the World Cup and the latest win will further boost their maiden title bid. The USA also impressed with both bat and ball but fell short in their first-ever taste of a Super 8 clash at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.

After unexpected and impressive performances

in the first round, the USA raised the expectations to cause further upsets but the South African team proved their superiority with a brilliant performance. With England and West Indies also being drawn into Group 2 of Super 8, the Proteas fans will celebrate two big points against the USA.

South Africa Playing XI: Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram (c), Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi.

United States Playing XI: Shayan Jahangir, Steven Taylor, Andries Gous (wk), Aaron Jones (c), Nitish Kumar, Corey Anderson, Harmeet Singh, Jasdeep Singh, Nosthush Kenjige, Ali Khan, Saurabh Netravalkar.
