JP Duminy played an outstanding innings before being out at nervous 99, Ireland v South Africa, Group B, World Cup, Kolkata, March 15, 2011
JP Duminy executed an outstanding but unlucky 99 that elevated South Africa to Group B as they qualified for quarter-finals. Ireland strived for a good show for the crowd of Eden Gardens, where first game was played as the venue for the match between India and England was shifted to Bangalore due to inadequate arrangements, but their dream could not come true as Proteas disrupted them at 141 in 34th over while chasing of a good score of 273. They were now looking for their next game with Bangladesh on 19th March in Dhaka, Bangladesh would have to win this contest for the qualification of quarter-final.
Proteas complied for a disciplined bowling as Dale Steyn doesn't get you, Morne Morkel will, and Ireland caught the hard way, chasing a tall score on a wicket with true bounce. Morkel detached the openers with his threatening line lengths, and the back-up bowlers, led by Robin Peterson, made certain there were no escape itinerary for the middle order. The triumph is South Africa's seventh by a fringe of hundred or more runs in World Cups. The 131-run margin of crush is Ireland's biggest in World Cups, surpassing their 129-run loss to New Zealand in 2007. JP Duminy's became the second batsman after Adam Gilchrist to be dismissed for 99 in a World Cup match. Overall, there have been 36 occasions when a player has been dismissed in the nineties in World Cups.
