Yesterday South Africa won their first match of world cup 2019 against Afghanistan after losing three matches. They are at the 7th position in the points table with three points. If South Africa wants to reach in the semi-finals of world cup 2019, they need to win all their reaming matches of the group stage.
During South Africa versus Afghanistan, Chris Morris run out throw goes over Rabada ‘s head after bouncing on rough. After Captain Faf Du Plessis gives a hilarious reaction. South Africa will face New Zealand in their next game of world cup 2019.

After winning the first match against Afghanistan, South African skipper Faf Du Plessis said,
“I am smiling at your jokes. Today was a good day for us. We spoke a lot about it and today we were good. Given the nature of the wicket, conducive for seam bowlers, it would have been a challenge. It was important to get a good start; the wicket was not very conducive to spin. Morris and Tahir were fantastic in the middle overs as they got wickets. He (Tahir) has single-handedly made us a strong team in the last two years with his ability to take wickets in the middle overs.”
“Naturally, Quinton plays quite freely, but it was important for him to see off the new ball. We needed a 60 or 70-run stand upfront and we could have worked on the run rate later. It was important for Amla to get amongst the runs, he will be important for us in the upcoming games. In the next four games, net run rate is not going to play a massive role if you win those games. So we need Hashim to score runs for us; hence he needed a not-out innings today.”
