Dharamsala: Netherlands has given a shock by defeating the South African team in the current World Cup cricket series. South African team captain Bouma has said that this defeat has become an unforgettable pain for them in such an environment.
In this match held in Dharamsala, Netherlands showed great performance in batting, bowling and fielding. The win also marked the first time a non-Test-ranked side defeated South Africa in ODI cricket.
“Certainly this defeat has caused an unforgettable agony. Our journey in this series is far from over. We will surely bounce back from this. The Netherlands pressured us throughout the game. I wish them all the best,” Bouma said.
South Africa has previously lost to teams like Zimbabwe (1999) and Bangladesh (2007 and 2019) in the World Cup series. South Africa lost to the Netherlands in the T20 World Cup last year.
