World Cup story in numbers: Ties and one that hurt South Africa

As the teams gear up for the 2019 World Cup, here is a throwback to the numbers when one team trooped out winner, even if it was a tie! Two gut-wrenching World Cup games — in 1999 and 2003 — ended a team’s run in dramatic fashion.

Tied matches (4 instances): Australia (213) tied South Africa (213) (Birmingham) 17 Jun 1999

Sri Lanka (268/9) tied South Africa (229/6) (Durban) 3 Mar 2003 via DL method

Ireland (221/9) tied Zimbabwe (221) (Kingston) 15 Mar 2007

India (338) tied England (228/8) (Bangalore) 27 Feb 2011
