The two sides will meet again on Thursday afternoon in their second game before the Proteas head to Spain where they will be based for the World Cup.

In Spain they will also play in warm-up games against Argentina, Korea and Canada.

The Proteas are in Pool D for the World Cup with Australia, Belgium and Japan.
