South Africa back on track

South Africa's win against the West Indies in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super 8 puts them back in track to reach the semis of the competition.

After a poor batting performance against Bangladesh which resulted in a loss of 67 runs plus the number one ranking status, South African knew that only a win would give them a comfortable sail into the semis. Its not done yet as theoretically the other four teams below them can still reach semis.

Later today England will play Bangladesh and a win for either side will strengthen the team's quest for the semis. Bangladesh's win over South Africa has increased its chances of reaching the semis and a win will increase their chances even more.

England's captain Michael Vaughan once again failed with the bat as England lost Australia and this time he knows that his side has to win all the remaining matches or they will watch the semis from home.

South Africa's bowling performance is less than convincing at this tournament so far and their batsmen have to score many runs in order for them to win. They did that in this match but they have to do that in every match to have a chance.

I think they will reach the semis because they have two easy matches coming against Ireland and England.
