The T20 World Cup 2024's first semi-final saw South Africa demolish Afghanistan to reach the final with a nine-wicket victory. After losing the toss, the Proteas were asked to bowl first and grabbed that opportunity with both hands. Marco Jansen, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada and Tabraiz Shamsi produced brilliant spells to bundle out Afghanistan at 56.

South Africa comfortably chased down this total and sealed their spot in the final. With this performance, here are some of the lowest totals in Men's T20 World Cup knockouts.

As mentioned earlier, Afghanistan holds the record for the lowest total (56) in the T20 World Cup knockouts. After a dream T20 World Cup campaign the Afghans reached a historic final-four appearance but were up against a firey South African pace attack on a green track. The Proteas bundled out the Atalan Lions at 56 in 11.5 overs and chased down the total in 8.5 overs.
