T20 World Cup: SA Skipper Markram Praises Bowlers And De Kock After Impressive Win Against England

After South Africa: After South Africa continued their impressive run at the T20 World Cup 2024, securing a hard-fought seven-run victory over England at Darren Sammy Stadium on Friday, skipper Markram lauded Quinton de Kock for scintillating innings of 65 from 38 balls, which South Africa captain Aiden Markram hailed as the defining factor in the team's victory.

De Kock's aggressive approach at the top of the order set the tone for South Africa's innings. His 22-ball half-century, featuring four towering sixes, propelled South Africa to a strong position during the powerplay, reaching 63 without loss. Despite the pitch slowing down considerably as the game progressed, South Africa managed to post a competitive total of 163 for 6, a score that proved to be just enough to edge out England.

Reflecting on the match, Markram praised his team's resilience and fighting spirit, which has been a hallmark of their campaign. "Yeah, we've had a few of those so far in this comp," Markram said after the match. "But specifically today's, probably getting to those last three overs and it looks like the odds will be heavily against you, and for the bowlers to hang in there, have really good plans and ultimately get the execution right, shows a lot of skill. But I think it comes from deeper and that fighting spirit, like you mentioned, helped us a lot."
