CT 2009 LogoEngland has won over South Africa and ruled it out of ICC Champions Trophy 2009 in their homeland. This is not a small incident unforgettable by the passage of time. It is about the defeat of a team ranked 1st in the world of cricket. England has qualified for semi-finals and knocked South Africa by 22 runs at Centurion. England won the toss and decided to bat first. The opening batsmen Andrew and Joe Denly couldn’t play up to the mark but the partnership formed between Paul Collingwood and Owais Shah was great. Owais scored 98 and Paul scored 82 runs. The partnership grew to 163 scores. Although Greame Smith did astounding batting by making 141 runs but still South Africa lost the match. It can be speculated that the rivals Australia and England once again jump in the final round. Let’s see who takes the cremated body and ashes.
