South Africa, at last, exhibited colours of confidence as they resgitered a comprehensive win over Sri Lanka at the Riverside Ground in Chester-le-Street on Friday. The Proteas defeated the Islanders by 9-wicket but the winning captain admitted that the victory did not feel like it meant much.South Africa are already out of the World Cup semi-finals race, as before facing Sri Lanka, they had a solitary win in the tournament. After losing to Pakistan on Sunday, they joined Afghanistan to become the second team to get eliminated from the contention for the last four.However, against Sri Lanka, South Africa had no baggage of pressure and had nothing to lose as they dished out a clinical performance from both bat and the ball to win the game with 11.4 overs to spare. But, as Faf du Plessis said, it was loo late for it.”It feels bitter-sweet, it doesn’t feel like it means that much. It’s a little bit too late,” Faf du Plessis said in a post match interview.South Africa suffered their first World Cup 2019 defeat to hot favourites England and later slumped to Bangladesh, who were termed a weaker side to the Proteas on the paper. Faf confessed that the defeat to Bangladesh actually hampered their confidence.”The basics of batting were shown today. We’ve batted well all through the tournament, but we just didn’t have guys batting through. Hashim gave us a good foundation, one big partnership makes it look so much easier. We hadn’t done that consistently in the tournament. I think Bangladesh was the one that really took the wind out of our sails.”advertisement”England are a very good team and they were too good for us on that day. Bangladesh played an unbelievably good game and that sucker punched us and we almost took the hangover of that game into the next game. The first week really put us back, but we knew that was the case and we can’t hide from that.”Chasing down 204, Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla discovered their lost touch as the two stictched 175-run stand for the second wicket and also got their personal best scorers. Faf du Plessis scored 96*, whereas Hashim Amla amassed 80 to guide their side home.On the bowling part, Dwaine Pretorius, who came in for Lungi Ngidi, chipped in with 3 wickets while Chris Morris too picked 3 to all-out Sri Lanka for 203.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Swarm of bees invades pitch during SL vs SA matchAlso Read | Myth buster: India’s bowling, not batting, their main strengthAlso See
A 33-year-old miner was on Monday remanded to prison by the Chief Magistrate, Ann McLennan, after he was charged and taken to court for the capital offence of murder.Paul Charles of Foulmouth Village, Essequibo River, was not required to plead to the indictable charge. It is alleged that on February 7, 2019, at Foulmouth Village, he murdered his drinking partner, Cedric James. He was remanded to prison and the case will continue on February 21 at the Bartica Magistrate’s Court.Reports are the Essequibo River man was allegedly stabbed to death by Charles after the two had an argument over an incident that occurred almost ten years ago.Investigations revealed that the suspect and the deceased were imbibing at the landing when an argument ensued between the two over an incident that occurred in 2009.Due to the disagreement, it is alleged that the suspect became annoyed, armed himself with a knife and stabbed the labourer to the neck several times before fleeing the scene.The now dead man was rushed to the Bartica Regional Hospital by public-spirited persons but was pronounced dead on arrival.
