South Africa skipper Aiden Markram is having a horror show in this T20 World Cup as the right-hand batter fell for a duck against the Netherlands in the ongoing match at the Nassau County Cricket Stadium in New York. 

The wait for the game was immense among the fans as the two teams share recent history. However, the Dutch, batting first, put up a flop show with the bat and tumbled for just 103 runs. What looked like an easy chase for the Proteas was made difficult by the Men in Orange bowlers. 

The Proteas lost two wickets for three runs which is when Markram walked to bat with responsibilities on his shoulders to guide his team to victory. However, his flop show continued as he registered a three-ball duck. 

On the 3rd ball of the 3rd over, Markram tried to flick a shot to his right but found a thin outside edge and Scott Edwards made no mistake behind the stumps as he dived to his right and took a low catch. It was Vivian Kingma's 2nd wicket of the match.
