Super show by De villiers gives proteas a win

abAfter having suffered a stunning two-wicket loss against England on Friday despite scoring a record-high score of 229 for 4, South African’s came hard at Afghanisthan  today. Winning the toss and elected to bat , the proteas put a thumping score of 209/5 in their limited 20 overs. In response, Afghanistan were restricted to 172 all out in 20 overs. The star of the show was AB de Villiers, who made 64 in just 29 ballsthat included  4 fours and 5 massive sixes . Afghanistan on the other hand did themselves proud by putting up a good show against a strong South African team on paper. It was a bit of a mismatch on paper but not so much on the field. The minnows started the improbable chase of 210-run target with confidence, with the opening pair of Mohammad Shahzad and Noor Ali Zadran posting 52 runs inside four overs. But they could managed only 171 runs with South African bowlers taking six wickets in the last five overs of the match.
