Cricket: Protea victory marred by Bavuma injury concern

# Cricket: South Africa beat Afghanistan by five wickets in their last group game at the World Cup in India. But the victory has been clouded by concern over the fitness of Temba Bavuma. The skipper’s hamstring injury battles were evident and he could only contribute 23 runs to South Africa’s total of 247 for five. Rassie van der Dussen top-scored with an unbeaten 76. Afghanistan were earlier bowled out for 244, with Gerald Coetzee claiming four for 44. The Proteas are up against Australia in the semi-finals on Thursday.
