Tip Summary

  • South Africa will officially qualify for the playoffs if they win the Thursday game while Pakistan will be ruled out of the race.
  • The Proteas scored a big win over India in their last game by five wickets.
  • Pakistan scored their first win in the T20 World Cup on Sunday by hammering the Netherlands by six wickets. 

South Africa will be eager to continue their unbeatable ride in the T20 Championship as they will cross swords with Pakistan on Thursday at the Sydney Cricket Ground. The Proteas are currently the best team in Group 2 with two wins and one abandoned game. The team is occupying second place in the standings with five points. 

Temba Bavuma’s side is coming into the Thursday game after winning its last two matches against Bangladesh and India by 104 runs and five wickets, respectively. In the two games, both the batters and bowlers looked in sync as the team delivered an all-round performance. 

Meanwhile, it has been a tough ride for Pakistan in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022. The team is almost out of the playoff race after losing two of their three league matches. Even if they win both their remaining league games, their chances of qualification will depend on the performance of India and South Africa. 

They lost their first game against India by four wickets on the last ball of the match. However, it was the defeat against the Netherlands that hurt the Men in Green the most. Though the chances of qualification are extremely slim, Babar Azam & Men will hope to give their best in the remaining two matches.

South Africa scored a rousing victory against India in their most recent match of the T20 World Cup 2022, and the credit for the same goes to David Miller. The Proteas had to chase a low score of 134 runs in 20 overs but they looked in trouble initially. The top three players, including Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock, and Rilee Rossouw, walked back to the pavilion after scoring 10, one, and zero runs. In the time of distress, Miller stepped in. The middle-order batter played a sensational inning of not out 59 runs off 46 balls. Playing at a strike rate of 128.26, the Gujarat Titans batter hit four boundaries and three maximums. Miller will fancy hitting another match-defining knock as South Africa will aim for a playoff spot on Thursday.

Shan Masood’s pleasant form with the bat has been the only positive for the Men in Green in an otherwise disappointing World Cup campaign. Playing against India, the top-order batter showed signs of brilliance. He hammered 52 runs off 42 balls to take his team to a respectable score of 159 runs. Masood shined against Zimbabwe as well, with an innings of 44 runs. He failed to perform in Pakistan’s last game against the Netherlands but is expected to bounce back stronger on Thursday.

Top wicket-taker of the match: Anrich Nortje

The pace sensation Anrich Nortje has played an instrumental role in South Africa’s successful run in the T20 World Cup. He is the top wicket-taker with six wickets from three matches at an average of 7.17 and an economy rate of 4.53. Nortje picked up a whopping four wickets against Bangladesh while against India he was successful in sending Deepak Hooda back to the pavilion. Moreover, the Delhi Capitals star has the best economy rate in the World Cup so far. The aforementioned stats are a testimonial to Anrich Nortje’s greatness and Pakistan batters need to be careful of the pacer.
