Match 15 of the Cricket World Cup 2023 will be played between South Africa and Netherlands at the HPCA stadium in Dharamshala. Both teams have had contrasting fortunes in the tournament thus far. While South Africa have won both their matches, the Netherlands have lost both their matches.
South Africa began their campaign with a record-breaking win over Sri Lanka in which they posted the highest total in World Cup history (428). This was followed by a 134-run win over Australia. A century from Quinton de Kock and a half century from Aiden Markram propelled the Proteas to a first innings total of 311 in their 50 overs. This was followed by a disciplined bowling effort, which bowled out Australia for just 177. Kagiso Rabada picked up three wickets.
The Netherlands, on the other hand, lost their first match to Pakistan by 81 runs after failing to chase down 287. Vikramjit Singh and Bas de Leede scored half centuries in a losing cause. In their next game against New Zealand, the Netherlands lost by 99 runs. Chasing 323 to win, they were bowled out for 223. Colin Ackermann top scored with a knock of 69.
Ahead of the next game of the Cricket World Cup 2023, here is everything you need to know.
