South Africa’s emphatic win gives all the players confidence [DailyTimes] 17 Jun, 2019

It was important for South Africa not only to win but to do so emphatically and they did just that against Afghanistan. There will be a lot of happiness and above all relief from that nine-wicket victory and hopefully it can kickstart their ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup. There is still a chance they can make the semi-finals if they win all their remaining games, so the camp should be a little more upbeat. It was a good bowling performance, and a lot of players will have taken confidence from getting some wickets. It was good to see the guys take the opportunity they had and not just go through the motions against a team that was slightly weaker than them.I was also really pleased to see Hashim Amla get some runs. It wasn’t a case of scoring quickly, but instead getting some time out in the middle. The run-rate did not really matter, it was about getting some form and Hashim did just that. I still think he will be really important for South Africa over the course of this tournament given his experience. That will be especially true in the next game against New Zealand at Edgbaston. The Kiwis always play well in these tournaments and they are always contenders. They also find ways to do something different and be unpredictable.
