Proteas bow out with stunner over Australia
That’s the end of the round-robin stage of the 2019 World Cup. Andile pumps his fist, Tahir and Duminy fittingly lead South Africa off the field. So, they end their World Cup on seventh – above Bangladesh – with seven points. Warner and Carey threatened a jailbreak after the early loss of wickets, but South Africa had enough in their tank to deny them. This means India finish on top and will face New Zealand in the first semi-final in at Old Trafford while Australia will play England in the second semi-final at Edgbaston.
