South Africa finished second in the points table behind India, defeating Australia by 134 runs. Australia and South Africa will face off in the second semifinal at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Thursday, November 16. The winner will join India in the final at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, November 19. Both teams have played quality cricket to secure spots in the semifinals. South Africa accumulated 14 points, trailing behind India, while Australia is on a seven-match winning streak.
