Opting to bat first, Afghanistan faced a batting collapse against South Africa's formidable pace attack, succumbing to a mere 56 runs. The Proteas' bowlers exploited favorable seam movement with Marco Jansen (3/16), Kagiso Rabada (2/14), Anrich Nortje (2/7), and spinner Tabraiz Shamsi (3/6) sharing the wickets.

Afghanistan struggled from the outset, losing half their team within the Powerplay overs. Azmatullah Omarzai's 10 runs off 12 balls proved the highest score in a dismal batting performance.

Chasing the modest target, South Africa cruised to victory in just 8.5 overs, led by Reeza Hendricks' 29 and Aiden Markram's unbeaten 23. Fazalhaq Farooqi took the lone wicket for Afghanistan.

Brief Scores:

Afghanistan 56 all out in 11.5 overs (Azmatullah Omarzai 10; Tabraiz Shamsi 3/6, Marco Jansen 3/16)

South Africa 60 for 1 in 8.5 overs (Reeza Hendricks 29, Aiden Markram 23*; Fazalhaq Farooqi 1/11)

South Africa's clinical performance sets them on course for a historic showdown in the T20 World Cup final, showcasing their prowess and determination in the tournament.
