DUBAI: Aiden Markram struck a whirlwind unbeaten fifty as South Africa produced an all-round effort to bounce back strongly from their opening defeat and beat West Indies by eight wickets to secure their first win in the Super 12 stage of the ICC T20 World Cup here on Tuesday.
The Proteas overcame some offfield drama coming into the match when wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock stunningly withdrew from the game, refusing to adhere to Cricket South Africa's order that the entire team take the knee before every game of the event to support Black Lives Matter campaign.

South Africa will next play Sri Lanka in their third Group 1 match on October 30, while West Indies will take on Bangladesh a day earlier.
