South Africa have won this rain-affected encounter comprehensively by 9 wickets. 
Put in to bat first, Afghanistan began cautiously, before the weather conditions halted play. 
Post that, Imran Tahir got his sprint boots on, as he went on to celebrate four wickets in no time. He masterminded a middle order collapse. 

With 127 needed to chase, the underdogs started off brightly by bowling tight lines. However, once Quinton de Kock (68) broke the shackles, it was a mammoth task to keep him out. 
Hashim Amla struggled to get going, but remained not out on 41 of 83. 
That seldom mattered, because the spirits of the South Africans were handed a major boost after the victory. 

That's all from us, do tune in tomorrow to Sportskeeda for the live coverage of arguably the biggest fixture in world sport - India v Pakistan. 
Until then goodbye.
