Markram hit 175 runs with the help of 126 balls. Batting first, South Africa scored 370 for 8 wkts in their 50 overs, with Magala taking five wickets with his impressive bowling.
With the win, South Africa moved up to eighth in the World Cup Super League standings, and they are automatically qualifying for the 2023 World Cup which is to be held in October.
India often features top eight teams in any tournament, and South Africa can now only be pushed out of the top eight by Ireland, which is unlikely to happen. To do so, Ireland will need to win all games of their home series against Bangladesh next month.
Sri Lanka is almost out from qualifying race
Sri Lanka’s dream to climb to the eighth position in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 table ended in failure as they suffered defeat against New Zealand in the third ODI in Hamilton. The Super League is being conducted as a test of players’ eligibility for the 2023 Cricket World Cup, which will feature ten teams. Seven teams have already booked their places in the tournament, but Sri Lanka’s defeat means they will no longer qualify but should continue to fight for qualification.
Now South Africa has almost qualified for the tournament before October-November. Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, New Zealand, Pakistan and host India, all these countries have already qualified.
