In a stunning upset at the ICC World Cup 2023, the Netherlands secured a notable victory over South Africa, winning by a margin of 38 runs at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium.
This win was particularly surprising as South Africa was considered a strong team in the tournament. Just a few days earlier, Afghanistan had also produced a major shock by defeating defending champions England with a significant 69-run margin.
These unexpected outcomes have injected an element of excitement and unpredictability into the World Cup, elevating it into a thrilling competition. It highlights how in cricket, especially in World Cup events, underdog teams can deliver remarkable performances and challenge the established cricketing giants.
