Adelaide: South Africa skipper Temba Bavuma claimed that the player was ejected from the T20 World Cup. It was a “hard one to swallow” when the Protease failed to win yet another ICC tournament in the city on Sunday. South Africa was stunned by the Netherlands by 13 runs in their Super 12 finale to get eliminated from the group stage of the T20 final. “Hard one to swallow. We had the confidence and believes in ourselves as a unit to make the play-offs,” the disappointed Bavuma spoke in the post-match ceremony. The Netherlands sent South Africa crashing out of the T20 World Cup on Sunday by winning by 13 runs in Adelaide which also helped propel India to the semi-finals. But whether India will be crowned the winner of Group 2 or place second is contingent on the outcome of their final match in the league against Zimbabwe on .Advertisement With a ferocious pace, South Africa just needed to get past the minorities of the Netherlands to get to the top. However, their surprise defeat was a blow to them. Pakistan and Bangladesh are A lifeline for the Indians as they fight to secure the second semi-final place in Group 2. This result also secured India’s place in the last four before their final Group 2 match against Zimbabwe. “Unfortunately for us, we couldn’t do it. Win the toss and bowling, what they got wasn’t ideal. We lost wickets at crucial times. They used the dimension of the field a lot better than we did,” said the coach. South Africa has got the “chokers” label, and not by just coincidence. They are always the favorites to win the tournament; South Africa is yet to make it to the finals of a World Cup event. They’ve lost at the semi-final stage of the T-twenty World Cup twice -in both in 2009 and 2014. For the ODI World Cup, they have been eliminated in the last four times — in 1992, 1999, 1997, and the year 2015. The Netherlands captain Scot Edwards appeared to be at a “loss of words” after winning their first game over South Africa in any format. “Lost for words… It’s going to take a bit of time… We are sort of used to those conditions,” he said. “It is definitely up there — another big upset for Netherlands in a World Cup … We were still playing for a spot in the next World Cup.” It was the Netherlands’ second victory in the Super 12 stage after having defeated Zimbabwe by five wickets earlier.
