Kagiso Rabada’s exceptional delivery shattered Josh Inglis’ stumps, creating chaos for Australia as they chase 312 in the ongoing match against South Africa at Lucknow.
In their quest for their first win at the 2023 World Cup, Pat Cummins’ Australian team is facing a formidable South Africa at Lucknow. The trouble began early, with Mitchell Marsh falling for 27 in the sixth over. In the following over, David Warner’s dismissal occurred as he sliced a short delivery to point from Lungi Ngidi.
Although Australia looked to rebuild with Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne, their hopes were ultimately dashed by South Africa’s strong performance.
Kagiso Rabada had a significant impact by dismissing Steve Smith in the tenth over. In his next over, he bowled a remarkable delivery to Josh Inglis, angling it in and landing it perfectly on the middle and off stump line. The ball held its line and skillfully beat Inglis’ outside edge, crashing into his off and middle stumps. Inglis’ reaction was not one of shock but rather an acknowledgment of the sheer excellence of the delivery that had thoroughly outwitted him.
After 15 overs, Australia had struggled to 61-4.
In the first innings, Quinton de Kock’s century played a pivotal role in propelling South Africa beyond 300. Remarkably, every South African top-seven batsman contributed, with all of them surpassing 15 runs, and six of them even reaching 25 or more.
