Teams Preview

South Africa

In the opening fixture, the top-order crumbled in the initial Powerplay overs before Rassie van der Dussen led the fightback for South Africa.

In the batting department, the side will be depending on the likes of Quinton de Kock, Temba Bavuma and Rassie van der Dussen to do the bulk of the scoring in this must-win game.

Wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock once again failed to capitalize on his good. Left-hander perished in the sixth over after scoring 20 runs off 18 balls.

Besides, newly appointed captain Bavuma failed to make an impression in his debut game as captain of the side.

For South Africa, Rassie van der Dussen once again put in excellent performance with the bat. He notched up his maiden century in limited-overs to help South Africa post 270-odd runs in their allotted 50 overs. David Miller also looked fluent in his innings and scored a half-century for South Africa.

In the bowling department, the side will be relying on the likes of Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje. The home side might bring in Keshav Maharaj in place of either Lungi Ngidi or Tabraiz Shamsi.

South Africa Actual Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock, Anrich Nortje, Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungi Ngidi, Heinrich Klaasen, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Kagiso Rabada, Rassie van der Dussen, Tabraiz Shamsi, Temba Bavuma
