After losing their opening Group B match against India, South Africa's victory against Pakistan on Monday has revived the team’s morale as well as its chances of a semi-final spot while leaving Pakistan's hopes hanging by a thread.
 
South African skipper Hashim Amla in a post match press conference said that his team is relieved that they managed to get on the board. Talking about Chris Morris and Aaron Phangiso, Amla said that everybody knew of the skills and their hang of the game, and fortunately they managed to prove it as such.
 
Amla too played a crucial knock of 81 to guide the South African innings early on.
