South Africa made a slow start to their T20 World Cup campaign with a defeat against Sri Lanka in their opening game, falling short by five runs in their chase. However, they managed to brush aside New Zealand's challenge in their second game on Monday and won by two runs.

The Proteas set up a respectable target of 171 runs in the opening innings. JP Duminy knocked 86 runs from 43 balls while opener Hashim Amla contributed 41 runs.

On the bowling front, Dale Steyn was the only economical bowler for Faf du Plessis' side, conceding just 4.25 runs per over. The right-arm fast bowler took four wickets as South Africa held their nerve to restrict Brendon McCullum's side to 168 runs in 20 overs.

Entering the Super 10 stage after fighting through the Group Stage fixtures, Netherlands suffered mauling at the hands of Sri Lanka in their first game. Peter Borren's side scored just 39 runs in 11 overs, the lowest total in the T20 World Cup history.

The only Dutch batsman to knock up a double-digit score was Tom Cooper, who scored 16 runs. His brother Ben Cooper was the second best scorer with eight runs while the other batsmen failed to add five runs to their tally.

Dinesh Chandimal's side had little trouble in chasing the score in the fifth over, losing only Kusal Perera (14) in the second over.

In Group 1 South Africa are third in the table with two points after two matches with a Net Run-Rate (NRR) of -0.075 while the Dutch are at bottom with zero points and a staggeringly low NRR of -6.050.

This game will certainly be a bonus for South Africans who must win their two remaining matches convincingly if they aspire to qualify for the semi-finals.
