South Africa beat West Indies by 67 runs in the Super 8 phase of the World Cup at the Cricket National Stadium, St. George's, Grenada.

This defeat all but eliminates hosts the West Indies, meaning the record of a host nation never winning the tournament would continue.

Toss: West Indies won, and elected to field first.
