ODI World Cup 2023

‘Choke karna koi inse seekhe’ – Fans react as Australia knock South Africa out of ODI World Cup 2023

Australia have booked their place in the final of the ODI World Cup 2023 after a stunning victory over South Africa

Australia vs South Africa

South Africa, who chose to bat first, could never have predicted the circumstances that confronted them. There were clouds everywhere and the weather was ideal for an English Test match. Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc profited from the situation and attacked South Africa to 24/4. At that point, it appeared as though a rematch of the 2007 semi final was anticipated. 

However, David Miller as well as Henrich Klaasen composed themselves and, with the aid of a rain delay, eased the tension on their side with a 95-run partnership. Travis Head took 2 for 2 balls during his opening over after Pat Cummins sent him in just as the tide was starting to change.

However, Miller persisted and scored his most brilliant innings to provide South Africa a chance in this match. When Zampa hammered all five of his sixes into the leggie, he was very harsh with him. They set a total of 213 runs and South Africa would feel that they had a chance at that moment.

Australia hang on to qualify for ODI World Cup 2023 final

It’s impressive that South Africa managed to get this far in the match with only 212 points scored. However, on this surface, the final score was probably 20–30 runs short. Australia is off to a flying start with Travis Head along with David Warner. The job that the individuals while opening may have been the deciding factor. 

Aiden Markram broke the stand, and Keshav Maharaj removed the threatening Head. Ever since that, the encounter continued to fluctuate. Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi discovered a significant turn. Glenn Maxwell and Marnus Labuschagne fell quickly after each other and  Australia found themselves struggling on 119/5.

However, Josh Inglis made his debut at that point and perhaps played the most significant knock of his career. He and Steve Smith, who was on the opposite end, batted well together. They absorbed all the pressure from the spinners and played with patience, exhibiting excellent technique. 

Gerald Coetzee delivered two strikes at once, just when it appeared like Australia would coast home. Despite the intense heat and bowling eight consecutive overs, Coetzee found the bravery and stamina to remove Smith followed by Inglis. However, Australia’s captain Pat Cummins along with Mitchell Starc fought until the very end to lead their team to their sixth World Cup final.
