Netherlands’s players celebrate their win against South Africa in ICC Twenty20 World Cup 2022 in Adelaide on Sunday. ADELAIDE: Deflated South Africa coach Mark Boucher said his side had only themselves to blame after their Twenty20 World Cup campaign ended on Sunday with a shock defeat to the Netherlands. The Dutch stunned the Proteas by 13 runs in Adelaide — a victory that also propelled India into the semi-finals — in the latest of a series of surprise results at the tournament. South Africa had been touted as outside favourites to win the competition but they are now heading home after failing to get out of the weaker of the two Super 12 groups. It extended their wretched record in white-ball World Cups. Chasing 159 for victory after man-of-the-match Colin Ackermann’s unbeaten 41, South Africa faltered to end on 145-8, with Dutch fast bowler Brandon Glover returning impressive figures of 3-9 in two overs. “Hard one to swallow,” said South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma. South Africa started their reply on a jittery note with openers Quinton de Kock and Bavuma out inside six overs with the score on 39. The left-handed de Kock hit a four and six but soon fell caught behind to Fred Klaassen, for 13, and Bavuma was bowled by Paul van Meekeren for 20. But it was Glover’s wicket of Rilee Rossouw that raised the Dutch hopes with the batsman, who hit the first century in this tournament, departing after a 19-ball 25. The Proteas never looked convincing as Klaassen took down Aiden Markram for 17 and a Dutch shock started becoming a reality when Glover struck twice in one over. He sent back the dangerous David Miller for 17 and then got Wayne Parnell caught behind for nought as the wheels came off the South Africa chase — and with it their World Cup hopes. Put in to bat first, the Dutch, who had only beaten Zimbabwe in the Super 12 prior to this, started strongly with Stephan Myburgh’s 37 but lost their way. But then stepped in Ackermann. He smashed three fours and two sixes in his 26-ball knock and along with skipper Scott Edwards helped the team get 31 runs from the final two overs.
