The Proteas – unbeaten in the tournament – came into the final game of the Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup still needing to beat the West Indies in order to progress to the knockout stage.

As it turned out, it was again another closely-fought affair, with the Proteas only securing the much-needed win in the final over of a rain-delayed match.

Ultimately, Tabraiz Shamsi was the hero with the ball, while Marco Jansen showed great composure to hit the winning runs after a cameo down the order.

Although the Proteas have yet to produce a complete performance at the tournament, the fact remains that Aiden Markram’s team have now won seven games in a row.

The latest victory ensured they finished top of Group 2, and they will now wait to find out who will lie in wait in the semi-finals. In all likelihood, it will be either India or Australia, with those two teams clashing later on Monday.
