South Africa broke the long-standing semi-final jinx with a nine-wicket win over Afghanistan in the first semi-final. Proteas bowled the hapless Afghans out for just 56 runs. Reeza Hendricks (29 not out off 25) and Aiden Markram (23 off 21) then finished the job with the bat. Tabraiz Shamsi, Marco Jansen, Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje were all on song as the Afghans were skittled in just 11.5 overs at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad, West Indies.
