It was business as usual for South Africa as they cruised to a 206-run victory over Bangladesh in their final Group B match at the ICC Cricket World Cup at Mirpur on Saturday. This win guarantees them top spot on the log and also puts India and England through to the quarter-final stage. Technically Bangladesh can still qualify ahead of the West Indies but for that to happen the Caribbean Islanders would have to lose by an enormous margin in their final Group match against India on Sunday. At the moment the West Indies have a positive run rate of 1.63 and Bangladesh a negative one of 1.36.
What is at stake is the final finishing order in Group B. If the West Indies beat India, they will finish second with India and England fighting out the bottom two places on net run rate. If India win, they will finish second and England third.
