The South Africa team has created history. South Africa has made it to the final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. After losing in the semi-finals a total of 7 times in the World Cup, South Africa managed to reach the final in the eighth attempt. This was South Africa’s eighth consecutive win in the ninth T20 World Cup. South Africa achieved Afghanistan’s challenge of 57 runs by losing 1 wicket. With this defeat, Afghanistan’s challenge will end. Afghanistan performed remarkably in this tournament. Afghanistan has reached this point by defeating teams like New Zealand-Australia in the series and Super 8. But ultimately their journey ended in the semi-finals. Let’s know what Afghanistan captain Rashid Khan said after this defeat.

What did Rashid Khan say?

“It was a challenging night for our team. We could have done better, but the conditions didn’t allow us to do what we wanted to. T20 cricket is like that, you have to be prepared for every situation. I think South Africa bowled really well”, Rashid praised the South African bowlers.

After the defeat, Rashid also took a dig at his bowlers. We were unfortunate due to Mujeeb’s injury. But our fast bowlers and even Mohammad Nabi bowled remarkably with the new ball. So the spinners made the job easy. We enjoyed the competition. Rashid said, we accept playing in the semi-finals and losing to a top team like Africa.

“This is just the beginning for us, we have the confidence and belief to beat any team. It is a great learning experience for us. We know we have the skills, it is just about handling tough situations, pressure situations”, Rashid explained.

He said, “We have to make some improvements especially in the middle order batting. It is always a learning experience for us and we have done well so far. We will come back by working hard, especially in batting”, Rashid said.

South Africa Playing XI: Aiden Markram (captain), Quinton de Kock (wicketkeeper), Reeza Hendricks, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrique Norkhia and Tabraiz Shamsi.

Afghanistan’s playing XI: Rashid Khan (captain), Rahmanullah Gurbaz (wicketkeeper), Ibrahim Zadran, Azmatullah Umarzai, Gulbadin Naib, Mohammad Nabi, Karim Janat, Nangelia Kharote, Noor Ahmed, Naveen-ul-Haq and Fazalhaq Farooqi.
