Netherlands created the biggest upset as they defeated South Africa by 13 runs in a low-scoring match played at Adelaide Oval on 6 November 2022.

It was an impressive performance from the Netherlands side as they posted 158 for 4 in 20 overs. South African captain Temba Bavuma won the toss and decided to field first. Stephen Myburgh and Max O Dowd provided a decent start putting on 58 runs for the opening wicket.

Tom Cooper 35 off 19 balls, Colin Ackermann 41* off 26 balls helped Netherlands post 158 for 4. Anrich Nortje was the pick of bowlers for South Africa with 1 for 10 in 4 overs.

South African openers de Kock showed intent right from word go. Klassen got the breakthrough dismissing de Kock with a simple catch to the wicketkeeper Edwards. Bavuma struggled to time the ball keeping the momentum going for South Africa. Van Meekeren got rid of Bavuma’s round legs.

Rilee Rossouw and Aiden Markram steadied the ship for South Africa before the Netherlands kept on picking wickets at regular intervals. Brandon Glover grabbed important wickets of Rossouw, David Miller, and Wayne Parnell in quick succession to leave South Africa on the back foot. Keshav Maharaj struggled as he was limping.

Netherlands held onto their nerves in the final over despite de Leede struggling for rhythm. Brandon Glover was the pick of bowlers for the Netherlands with 3 for 9 in 2 overs, Fred Klassen and Leede grabbed 2 wickets each while Meekeren took 1 wicket. Netherlands restricted South Africa to 145 for 8.

Fans showered praise on the Netherlands side for producing one of the best performances in the T20 World Cup 2022. Here are some of the reactions:
