GG NZ, bittersweet..SA only really got 5 overs of powerplay.the moment they called the match 43 overs i knew SA were lost, they had their powerplay start interrupted and then cut to 5 overs.I hope for NZ sake India beat AUS..
TBH, the D/L didn't screw South Africa. 298 is a huge total to chase in 43 overs.

I think SA would of much preferred playing out the innings and putting up 350+.
If SA got 350 off 50 the RRPO would be 7.01, the DL set a RRPO at 6.98. Bugger all difference. The only advantage of 350+ is that it looks bigger.Fielding errors were the difference.
