Confident South Africa Women would be taking on Thailand Women in the 11th game of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup 2020 Manuka Oval, Canberra. South Africans have started the tournament on the right note as they defeated one of the title contenders England Women by a comprehensive margin in their opening game.
Thailand Women, on the other hand, have suffered big losses in both their games so far. In terms of skills and talent, Thailand Women have looked far behind in both the games. With scores of 78 for 9 and 78 for 7 in their two games so far their very approach in this format of the game has been put to question. They have an uphill challenge in the next game.
South Africa Women wouldn’t want to be complacent and use this opportunity to strengthen their position on the points table ahead of tougher games.

Dane van Niekerk has made a good start to the competition where they defeated a strong English side by 6 wickets in their first game. It was a good show from their bowlers in the game. The skipper wouldn’t want her side to be complacent in the next game against Thailand Women and look to grab their next points from it. Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kapp put up a match-winning stand in the last game and they shall look to use the momentum in the next one.
Opener Lizelle Lee who missed out in the last game shall look to do well. They have good batters to follow in Chloe Tryon and Mignon du Preez and both these players looked good in the last game. With Sune Luus and Laura Wolvaardt in the finishers’ role, the side looks good going into this game.
Their bowlers delivered a strong performance in the last game where Kapp and Ayabonga Khaka troubled the opponents and shall look to exploit the weaknesses Thailand Women have in their batting. Dane van Niekerk and Shabnim Ismail also did well in the game. Their bowlers are likely to make better use of the conditions and trouble the Thai girls.
Sornnarin Tippoch has had a tough run so far in the tournament with two miserable losses. While they came in with an inexperienced side they have just not been able to match up to the challenge thrown at them. Going into the next game the skipper would want her girls to play with a free mind and offer competition to the South Africans. Nattaya Boochatham and Nattakan Chantam will need to do well at the top.
They have got starts in either game but haven’t paced their innings well. Nannapat Koncharoenkai and Naruemol Chaiwai must hold the middle order together. Down the order players have contributed hardly anything so far and the side would expect runs from Chanida Sutthiruang and Tippoch in this must-win game. Nattaya Boochatham and Soraya Lateh must pick early wickets for the side to play well against the South Africans. Ratanaporn Padunglerd, Tippoch and Suleeporn Laomi will need to focus on bowling tighter lines and not offer room to the opponents to hit them as we have seen in the two games so far.
Nattaya Boochatham, Onnicha Kamchomphu, Chanida Sutthiruang, Naruemol Chaiwai, Soraya Lateh, Suleeporn Laomi, Nannapat Khoncharoenkai, Wongpaka Liengprasert, Ratanaporn Padunglerd, Sornnarin Tippoch, Nattakan Chantam

The weather would be by and large clear over Canberra on February 28 with odd clouds during the game. There is something in the pitch for the bowlers as the ball tends to stop on the batters which makes stroke playing difficult. The side batting first would be happy to post a total of over 150 runs on this surface.
Manuka Oval, Canberra isn’t the easiest surface to bat on in Australia and we have seen many low scoring games here. The wicket is dual paced and the ball doesn’t come on to the bat nicely. Fast bowlers have done well at this venue and spinners also love this surface as it offers them good assistance.
The conditions at the ground would offer early assistance to the seam bowlers. The pitch would flat out as the game progresses and batting would be far easier in the second innings. Hence the skipper winning the toss is most likely to invite the opponents to bat first at this venue.
It is a game between two sides that have a wide gap between them in terms of skills and resources. While South Africa Women have highly experienced players and some of the best T20 hitters in their ranks this is the first appearance at the World Cup for Thailand Women.
It will be interesting to see if Thailand Women are able to put their poor form behind but as things stand South Africa Women would start favorites in this game.
