36th T20 Match

South Africa will start the competition as heavy contenders, particularly after defeating an in-form India squad in their previous match. The most satisfying aspect for the administration will be to watch the middle-order execute versus the Men-in-Blue when, despite losing early wickets, the middle-order rose up and showed themselves meaningful. Both sides have met 21 occasions in the game’s past, with the Men in Green holding a small advantage with 11 wins to the Proteas’ ten. Pakistan’s performance is even better when matches start in the ICC T20 World Cup, when the team wins all three encounters. Pakistan should prevail in this match if they are to advance to the semi-finals. They will, nevertheless, go up versus the most remarkable side in the tournament and will have to throw up their best effort to have a shot.
This is one of the greatest batting surfaces in the T20 World Cup this year, with a par score of roughly 190 – 195. There will be movement for the spinners and some help for the speed bowlers.
Pakistan will enter the tournament as an outsider after winning only one of three games, including a loss to Zimbabwe. That result has seized possession of Pakistan’s quest to participate in the semi-finals, as they now rely on other outcomes to maintain their last-four chances alive. The administration is also concerned about the record of skipper Babar Azam, who has yet to score in double digits in the tournament after playing three innings. The administration will be hopeful that the players, particularly the captain, bring their A-game when they meet South Africa. The ultimate responsibility will be on captain Babar, wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, Shan Masood, Fakhar Zaman, and Iftikhar Ahmed to score the majority of the runs and give the bowlers something significant to protect. Pacers Haris Rauf, Naseem Shan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, and Mohammad Wasim Jnr, as well as spinners Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz, will be expected to deliver crucial inroads and limit the resistance.
South Africa has been unbeatable, with only Zimbabwe’s stalling techniques and rainy weather keeping them from a perfect record. They have batting strength as well as depth and variation in their bowling. The training team will be hopeful that the players maintain the same types of displays in future games. The performance of Captain Temba Bavuma, who has only scored 14 runs in three games in the mega-event, will be a source of stress for everyone concerned. In the batting side, in-form players such as wicketkeeper-batter Quinton de Kock, top-order batsman Rilee Rossouw, seasoned David Miller, dynamic Tristan Stubbs, and powerful Aiden Markram will be expected to score the majority of the runs and provide anything for the bowlers to bowl with. In the bowling department, fast bowler Kagiso Rabada, Wayne Parnell, Anrich Nortje, and Lungi Ngidi, as well as spinners Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi, will be expected to limit the opponents by making timely successes.

IN South Africa:
Each team will be eager to win the critical toss, bat first, and score more than 170 runs. All four T20 World Cup games contested at the SCG have been won by the team that batted first.
We are backing South Africa to win this match. Both teams will approach the game with different attitudes. Pakistan has a historical advantage, particularly given they haven’t ever fallen to South Africa in the T20 World Cup, but current form suggests that the Proteas will be too difficult to contain. In theory, there is little reason to believe that the Bavuma-led outfit would collapse vs a Pakistan team that is clearly lacking morale. Bet on South Africa to win.
