Dainik BhaskarMar 06, 2020, 12:29 PM IST Sports Desk. The captain of the South African team bowed out of the women's T20 World Cup after losing in the semi-final against Australia. African team captain Dan Wayne Nikirk said, "It is better to win the semi-finals than to get to the finals via free pass (free)." Both World Cup semi-finals were on Thursday. The first match was between India and England. It was canceled due to rain. Team India reached the finals on the basis of group points. Australia defeated South Africa. The rain-affected match was decided by Duckworth Lewis Rules. The final of India and Australia will be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday 8 March. The Indian team reached the final of the World Cup for the first time.
It was difficult for South Africa to score 98 runs in 13 overs to win the semi-finals. She was five runs behind. The African captain is disappointed with this defeat. After the match, Nikirk said, "I won't lie that we didn't think of winning." The ground staff should be given credit that the match was achieved due to their hard work. To be honest, we would love to lose by playing and fighting. We do not like reaching the finals without playing and free passes. ”
There should be a Reserve Day, after one of the two semi-finals was canceled and one was decided on the basis of Duckworth Lewis, the ICC has come under severe criticism. The captains of India and England also clearly stated that for such a big tournament, at least there should be a Reserve Day for the semi-finals and finals. Nikirk also agrees. However, he put the matter in another way. The South African captain said, "It is not right to lose because of the weather. But, I would definitely say that there should be a Reserve Day for the semi-finals and finals. "
