South Africa Sets Record

South Africa has etched their name in T20 World Cup history, becoming the first team to win seven matches in a single edition. This record-breaking feat was achieved on Monday after defeating the West Indies by 3 wickets via the Duckworth-Lewis method in a Super 8 Stage clash.

Previously, the record for most wins in a T20 World Cup stood at six, held jointly by Sri Lanka (2009) and Australia (2010, 2021).

South Africa’s dominant run began in Group D, where they secured victories against Sri Lanka (6 wickets), Netherlands (4 wickets), Bangladesh (4 runs), and Nepal (1 run).

Carrying their momentum into the Super 8 Stage (Group 2), the Proteas continued their winning streak. They triumphed over the USA (18 runs), England (7 runs), and the West Indies (3 wickets). These consecutive victories propelled them to the semi-finals.

South Africa topped Group 2 with an impressive 6 points from their 3 matches. England, with 2 wins and 1 loss, secured the second qualifying spot from the group with 4 points.

The remaining two semi-finalists from Group 1 are yet to be determined. South Africa is likely to face either Afghanistan or Australia in the next stage.
