Poms hit form with a win

Townsville Bulletin - - Sport -

ENG­LAND’S bowlers fi­nally hit form at the World Cup yes­ter­day to dis­miss South Africa for 165 and se­cure an un­likely six-run win over the pre­vi­ously un­beaten Proteas.

South Africa bowled out Eng­land for 171 at Chen­nai’s Chi­dambaram Sta­dium but a var­ied and dis­ci­plined English at­tack took full ad­van­tage of a de­te­ri­o­rat­ing pitch to se­cure vic­tory with 14 balls re­main­ing.

Hav­ing reached 124-3, South Africa wick­ets for three runs in five overs.

Stu­art Broad took the last two wick­ets to wrap up the win and fin­ished with 4-15.
