The rain denies South Africa in the T20 World Cup after Quinton de Kock scores 47 off 18 deliveries

Quinton de Kock’s bid to lead his side to victory against Zimbabwe was hampered by the weather in Hobart, costing South Africa an almost certain victory in their opening match of the Twenty20 World Cup.

Rain delayed the start of the group two game and limited it to nine overs apiece. De Kock scored 47 not out from 18 balls as South Africa first chased 80 to win – and did so quickly. A

After additional rain, the winning goal was lowered to 64 runs off seven overs, and South Africa was 51-0 after three overs when the weather returned for the decisive decision before de Kock could lead his team home.

The game was declared a no-result, with each side receiving one point to begin their Super 12 campaigns.

Earlier, Taskin Ahmed claimed wickets with the first two balls of the innings to set Bangladesh on pace for a nine-run triumph against Netherlands in their group two match, Bangladesh’s first victory in a T20 World Cup Super 12 round.

Bangladesh was called in to bat and got a quick start before being reduced to 144-8 in Hobart’s early game of the day.

Taskin added two more wickets to his first-over haul to finish with 4-25 as the Netherlands were bowled out for 135. Colin Ackermann batted first for the Dutch, scoring a gutsy 62 from 48 balls.

It was Bangladesh’s first win in 17 T20 World Cup second-round games.
