Black Caps to face Proteas at Dhaka

8:58 am on 21 March 2011

The New Zealand cricketers will face South Africa in the World Cup quarter-finals at Bangladesh's National Stadium in Dhaka on March the 25th.

The finals shakedown was decided by India's 80-run victory over West Indies in the final World Cup Group B match on Monday morning.

That result set up a mouth-watering quarter-final showdown between co-hosts India and four times champions Australia in Ahmedabad while West Indies take on Group A winners Pakistan in Dhaka.

Yuvraj Singh's all-round performance set up the Indian victory, his 113 the cornerstone of India's 268 though the host nation lost their last six wickets for just 36 runs.

The two-time champion West Indies lost their last eight wickets for 34 runs to collapse for 188 in 43 overs.
