AB de Villiers and Chris Morris kick-started South Africa's World Twenty20 campaign as they managed to defend another 200-plus total in Mumbai against Afghanistan.
The Proteas' semi-final aspirations were in the balance following a high-scoring loss to England on Saturday, when Eoin Morgan's men produced the second highest chase in Twenty20 international history by hunting down 230.
And after posting 209 for five in the same stadium, thanks largely to De Villiers' 64 from 29 balls - 29 of which came in one over off teenager Rashid Khan - they were in danger of being undone by a bright Afghanistan start before Morris returned four for 27 and they were all out for 172 in South Africa's 37-run success.

A frail 92-year-old woman threatened with being deported to South Africa, away from the daughter who cares for her, has been granted a stay of execution.
Widowed Myrtle Cothill - whose father fought for Britain in the First World War - suffers with heart problems, poor eyesight and cannot walk unaided. She arrived in Britain on a tourist visa in 2014 so she could be cared for by her daughter, but her application to stay was rejected by the Home Office.
Her daughter, Mary Wills, had appealed the decision but it was upheld by two tribunals and a plane seat was booked to take her back to South Africa for Tuesday.
However, following a medical assessment today and a 52,000-signature online petition, the Home Office cancelled its removal order.
The family told ITV News Meridian they were delighted, and were waiting to be told what the government planned to do next.
Despite pleas that she has no family in her native country - plus a growing online petition - Myrtle Cothill must return to South Africa.Read the full story ›
