Zimbabwe crashed by South Africa in one sided affair as a new Kagiso Rabada is born

In a sensational display of bowling, Kwena Maphaka led South Africa’s charge as they decimated Zimbabwe’s batting lineup in a thrilling encounter at the U19 World Cup in Potchefstroom.

Maphaka’s incredible figures of 5-34 left the opposition reeling and paved the way for a resounding victory.

From the very beginning, Maphaka showcased his prowess and determination to make an impact.

He bowled with precision and accuracy, consistently hitting the right areas to trouble the Zimbabwean batsmen.

His ability to generate pace and movement off the pitch proved to be a nightmare for the opposition.

Maphaka’s first victim came in the form of Zimbabwe’s opener, whom he clean bowled with a peach of a delivery that swung late and crashed into the stumps.

This early breakthrough set the tone for what was to come, as Maphaka continued to wreak havoc on the Zimbabwean batting lineup.

His next four wickets were a testament to his skill and versatility.

Maphaka mixed up his deliveries, using a combination of well-disguised slower balls, sharp bouncers, and pinpoint yorkers to keep the batsmen guessing.

This variety proved to be too much for the Zimbabweans, who succumbed to Maphaka’s brilliance one after another.

As wickets tumbled, Zimbabwe’s hopes of posting a competitive total evaporated.

Maphaka’s relentless assault left them in disarray, struggling to cope with the pace and movement he generated.

The South African bowler’s ability to maintain pressure and sustain his aggression throughout his spell was commendable.

Maphaka has certainly announced himself as one to watch in the world of cricket.
