Defending champions West Indies suffered back-to-back Super 12 defeats as South Africa chased down a 144-run target with relative ease in their Group 1 match of ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021 in Dubai on Tuesday. On a day Quinton de Kock also stole the show by pulling out of the match, apparently due to because of his stand on BLM (Black Lives Matter) movement, they produced an all-round performance. Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram stitched an unbeaten 83-run stand in 54 balls for the third wicket to take the Proteas home after Dwaine Pretorius took three wickets in two wickets. Keshav Maharaj claimed a double. The eight-wicket win helped Proteas open their account in Group 1. They lost to Australia by five-wicket in the Super 12 opener, while the Windies suffered a six-wicket defeat after getting dismissed for 55. Windies next face Bangladesh, who lost to Sri Lanka in their opener, on October 29. South Africa take on Sri Lanka the following day. Both the matches will be played in Sharjah. Catch highlights of SA vs WI, ICC T20 World Cup 2021 match.
