SA knocked out of World Cup

South Africa have been knocked out of the ICC World Cup after losing to New Zealand by four wickets in Auckland today (24/03/15).

New Zealand went into the last over of a rain-shortened match needing 12 runs to reach its Duckworth-Lewis target of 298 from 43 overs, making it with a ball to spare thanks to Elliott, who scored an unbeaten 84. The New Zealanders will face either Australia or India in Sunday’s final.

Earlier Faf du Plessis had made 82, A.B. de Villiers 65 not out and David Miller 49 as South Africa posted 281-5 batting first, taking 65 runs from the five overs left to it after the rain.
