South Africa defeated Sri Lanka and the Netherlands in their first two matches of the World Cup. They managed to beat the Islanders without any difficulties but the Dutch did trouble the Proteas as David Miller bailed them out in New York to avoid a third consecutive loss against the Netherlands in ICC events.

On the other hand, Bangladesh began their World Cup campaign with a close win against Sri Lanka. The Islanders posted a 125-run target in Dallas and Bangladesh managed to chase it in 19 overs after struggling against their opponent’s bowling initially.

The match is being played in New York where low-scoring encounters have been witnessed including the match between Pakistan and India, which Rohit Sharma’s side won as they successfully defended the 120-run target on Sunday.
