South Africa 146 runs to beat United Arab Emirates.
South Africa 341/6 (De Villiers 99, Behardien 64 *, Naveed 3 for 63) beat UAE 195/10 in 47.3 overs (Patil 57 *, Anwar 39, Morkel 2 for 23)
Slow bowlers EAU had dumped sugar in the fuel tank of the machine of South Africa batting on a slow at the Regional Stadium track. But AB de Villiers fast 99 was Purring in no time for Farhaan Behardien to step on the accelerator the surplus end with an unbeaten 64 off 31 balls to repeat his record of scoring more than 300 whenever they have batted for the first time in this World Cup and beat United Arab Emirates by 146runs.
You do not want to be the team that faces South Africa after a loss. They have fallen nine times in ODIs in the last 12 months and won the next game with a vengeance on five occasions being the most recent caning of West Indies by 257 runs in Sydney and De Villiers was the deciding factor again. Fixed a minor of higher order wobble adding 108 off 107 balls with David Miller and built their own entries to the crescendo that has become a daily event.
De Villiers came in 17 Mohammad Tauqir the off spinner cargo and Amjad Javed who may as well be called the off cutter were in the middle of a productive spell. They gave away just 43 runs between overs 11 and 21 and only twice had the ball reaches the boundary. It had five times more than in the top 10 highlighting the ability of the two bowlers and the uncertainty of South Africa against bowling slow.
Rilee Rossouw stint since no. 3 was a case of perfect study. There was no swing for the seamers EAU and threw the ball to both sides of the zone of good length for Rossouw for hitting and throwing. Kamran Shazad who replaced Manjula Guruge despite a 4for 56 against Pakistan was hit out of the attack after fours double in three of their five overs. South Africa crossed past 50 in the ninth one and Rossouw was 28 17. But was struck first ball by Tauqir off spin and was lucky to his off Stump was left standing.The same subject continued during the 13 balls Rossouw faced from the captain of the United Arab Emirates which cost only three runs, and your window of 43 of 49.
Even de Villiers was tied briefly down 32 from 41 balls to the 29 more. But it was just batting smart taking into account reserves the death of United Arab Emirates bowler not to tempt a compulsive gambler and conceded 101 runs in the last 10 overs.
United Arab Emirates could have rescued themselves had Javed taken a return please outside Villiers finished 38th. On the other hand he had to see your next candle balloon beyond the border midwicket. There was another six, and three fours, as deVilliers dotted with fence as an impulsive buyer snapping things in your car because it gave him the win. Thirty-two of 41 had become with just a scandal.
A fifth century of the last 25 innings beckoned but short of the mark, of Villiers slicesrhythm Shazad medium on the third man of stature. A crop of school children grabbed his head with disbelief, but the man himself departed with a smile. They were his first 99 in 178 innings, and your one-stop allowed only long enough for Behardien put at stake its claim as a unit of finish. It is not powerful and there will be questions about their ability to better manage the attacks, but his blows and cuts were enough to make five four and three six in an unbeaten 31 ball 64. Mohammad Naveed began his spell with a projector that almost also removed Hashim Amla but ended up as a most successful bowling player from the United Arab Emirates with 3 of 63.
A target of 342 against the caliber of attack rate of South Africa meant the only realistic objective of the United Arab Emirates was to survive 50 overs. There were spurts of brilliance instinctive exit Amjad Ali Dale Steyn in the first over, Shaiman Anwar against Vernon Philander vicious straight drives in 26 one and hoisting Naveed Steyn in the stands behind long but that is lost in the midst of Steyn and Philander buzzing the outside edge on several occasions Khurram Khan took a nasty bouncer inthe ear and Andri Berenger impotent defend a capture an impressive one Rossouwin the point.
