Afghanistan took a hiding from determined Proteas who are now in the finals

THE Proteas comfortably cruised past Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup semifinal to book their place in Saturday’s final.

They won by nine-wickets.

SA bowled surprise packages Afghanistan out for a meagre total of 56 after 11 overs and five balls.

Tabraiz Shamsi starred with the ball, collecting three wickets and conceding only six runs at an economy rate of 3.27.

Marco Jansen also collected three sticks.

The Proteas picked off the runs in eight overs and five balls with 67 balls to spare and nine wickets in hand at Brian Lara Cricket Academy.

All of this after Afghanistan had won the toss and elected to bat.

There they’ll face either India or England, on Saturday’s T20 World Cup final at 16:30 local time.

The second semi-final is staged on Thursday 27 June at 16:30.
