We have already seen an upset in this tournament when in match 12 of this tournament Afghanistan defeated the defending champions England. They won the match going against all the odds by 69 runs and that was a historic day for the Afghanistan cricket team. It was their second victory in the Cricket World Cup history and it was a memorable one. Meanwhile, the Netherlands is also on the verge of making an upset where they are up against South Africa.
Van Der Merwe bowled a magical delivery:
South Africa is chasing a revised total of 246 runs against the Netherlands but they are in deep trouble as Netherlands bowlers have bowled tremendously and they have kept the South African batsmen quiet. They lost 4 quick wickets which increased the pressure on them as they were 44/4 at one point.
Roelof van der Merwe has been brilliant in his spell today and he played an important role in this performance of South Africa. He bowled a magical delivery in the 10th over of the South African inning where he dismissed Temba Bavuma.
He pitched that in the good length area and it was supposed to turn away from the batsman but that ball went straight into the stumps of Temba Bavuma, leaving him in shock. This video is getting viral on the internet as the netizens are praising Van Der Merwe for this delivery. Commentators also hailed this bowl as they were also shocked when this left the South African team in deep pressure.
