Crushing the entire Dutch team with a huge margin of 231 runs, the South African team is leading the point tally of Group B. The brilliant batting line up along with fantastic bowling helped South Africa in achieving their biggest victory in World Cup 2011. The Punjab Cricket Association stadium in Mohali, Chandigarh became the battle ground where this magic was seen in yesterday's match.
The power packed innings of AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla and J P Dumminy drove their team to a huge score of 351 runs. Netherlands on the other side tried their best to achieve this score but leg spinner Imran Tahir and Jacques Kallis shattered all the hopes of the Dutch team.
South Africa: 351-5 (50), AB de Villiers was elected Man of the Match
Netherlands: 120-10 (34.5)
