Jacques Kallis survived two chances to guide South Africa to a seven-wicket win over Ireland in a rain-affected Super Eights World Cup match on Tuesday.

Ireland were restricted to 152 for eight after rain reduced the contest to 35-overs a side.

South Africa replied with 165 for three and now have four points after chalking up their second victory in the second phase of the tournament.
