Edwards, van der Merwe helped Netherlands registered a historic win against South Africa.

Netherlands 245 for 8 (Edwards 78*, van der Merwe 29, Jansen 2-27) beat South Africa 207 (Miller 43, van Beek 3-60, van der Merwe 2-34, de Leede 2-36, van Meekeren 2-40) by 38 runs 43 overs a side.

Scott Edwards’ rousing unbeaten half-century gave his bowlers belief, and they shot for the stars, demolishing South Africa’s storied batting line-up to hand Netherlands a historic World Cup victory.

South Africa was one to beat so far, having won both their games at the tournament before this by more than 100 runs, after posting totals of 428 and 311, had insisted in the lead-up that they had moved on from a group-stage defeat to the Netherlands, which ended their T20 World Cup campaign last year.

The Netherlands, meanwhile, had shown fleeting glances of what they might be capable of here with heavy yet spirited defeats to Pakistan and New Zealand.

This match followed the script, until Edwards and Roelof van der Merwe – who shone with bat and ball – ripped it up to secure a 38-run win, Netherlands’ first against South Africa in ODIs.
