FIERY SPELL:Morne Morkel (centre) bagged four wickets to help South Africa skittle out Afghanistan for a paltry 80.
BRIDGETOWN: South Africa won through to the second round of the ICC World Twenty20 with a 59-run win as Afghanistan was bowled out for just 80 at the Kensington Oval here on Wednesday.
The Afghanistan top order had no answer to fast bowlers Morne Morkel, the Man of the Match, with four wickets for 20 runs, Dale Steyn (two for six) and Charl Langeveldt (three for 12). But the lowest score in a Twenty20 international remains the 67 made by Kenya against Ireland in Belfast in 2008. Kenya also holds the corresponding World Twenty20 record of 73, set against New Zealand in Durban in 2007.
Afghanistan's Hamid Hassan, who earlier took three wickets, took the pressure off his team by swinging left-arm spinner van der Merwe for six.
Hassan (22) and fellow tail-ender Mirwais Ashraf (23) prevented what had looked like a record-breaking rout although South Africa still won with four overs to spare. Afghanistan had no answer to the South African pacemen and collapsed to 12 for five in pursuit of a target of 140. — AFP
