South Africa romped to a 201-run victory

hashim-amla--du-plessisHashim Amla’s 20th one-day international century set South Africa on course for its second 400-plus total in an as many World Cup matches and a 201-run win over Ireland. Kyle Abbott was the pick of the bowlers with a 4-wicket haul while Morne Morkel picked up 3 and Dale Steyn chipped in with 2 wickets. Ireland’s chase never got off the ground as they lost half their side under 50 runs. A defiant partnership between Kevin O’Brien and Andy Balbirnie salvaged some pride for the Irish.
