Bangladesh humiliate South Africa with shock win
Bangladesh dealt a potentially fatal blow to South Africa's hopes of qualifying for the World Cup semi-finals with a stunning 67-run victory in the Super Eights here on Saturday.
Bangladesh did the unexpected when they dismissed South Africa for a modest 184 on a slow pitch after having set a challenging 252-run target in their best-ever batting performance of the tournament.
Their first win over South Africa also threw the tournament wide open as more than four teams are now in contention for the semi-final berths.
Defending champions Australia lead the table with six points from three matches, followed by Sri Lanka (6/4), New Zealand (6/3), South Africa (4/4), England (2/3) and the West Indies (2/4).
Bangladesh, who beat India in the first round, found more than one match-winner as they batted, bowled and fielded with discipline.
