South Africa moved into the World Cup quarter-finals

Captain AB de Villiers top scored and was out on 99 after contributions from Rilee Rossouw (43) and David Miller (49). Farhaan Behardien blasted 64 off 31 balls to take South Africa to 341-6, a total UAE never looked like reaching. Swapnil Patil scored an unbeaten 57 and Shaiman Anwar made 39 but UAE were bowled out for 195 runs in 47.3 overs. The victory means South Africa, who have never reached a World Cup final, will finish second in Pool B will probably face Sri Lanka in the quarter-final in Sydney on 18 March. South Africa dominated against a UAE side that has never beaten a Test-playing nation in a World Cup but who surprisingly opted to bowl first after winning the toss. That decision backfired as South Africa made the eighth highest total of the tournament with 22 again leading the way.
