Brian Lara Stadium Pitch Conditions & Tarouba Weather Report

T20 World Cup toss alert! Bowling first might be a good decision at Brian Lara Stadium. Chasing teams ruled here lately, and this pitch is a bowler’s paradise – expect scores around 130-140. Fast bowlers are on fire, taking 80% of wickets! Don’t worry about rain, though – cloudy skies and hot weather are all set for a thrilling SA vs AFG clash!

 

South Africa Team Preview

South Africa, ready to roar as they will stick with their winning team — no changes expected after a dominant 7 match winning strike. Quinton de Kock rediscovers his touch, leading the batting charge with 199 runs. On the other hand, T20 specialist Heinrich Klaasen has 138 runs and is important when facing the Afghan spinners.

 

This wicket is all about pace, and England’s two leading wicket-takers Anrich Nortje with 11 scalps and Kagiso Rabada with 10 scalps are eager to bundle the Afghans. Can they make it 8 in a row?

 

Afghanistan Team Preview

Afghan storm brewing! Overwhelmed by their win over Bangladesh, Afghanistan fields an unchanged XI. Gurbaz, the tournament’s top scorer (281 runs) might be slightly hampered by a minor injury, but he’s expected to play. Amazing pacer Farooqi (16 wickets) is a threat on this bowler-friendly pitch.

 

Spin wizard Rashid Khan (14 wickets) knows the SA batsmen well from the IPL and aims to exploit the turning track. Naveen (13 wickets) impressed with his calm bowling in the last match. Can Afghanistan upset the South Africa’s winning streak?

 

SA vs AFG Head 2 Head & Recent Performance

SA is on a positive note as they have won their seventh one match in a row. They are very confident now, and you can be sure that they will be trying to carry on their winning streak. However, Afghanistan has a rather more complicated road to travel. In most of their recent games they have been alternating between victories and defeats, they have two victories and two defeats in the last five games.

 

But don’t they be underrated – they had just knocked over Australia and made it to the semi-finals. Notably, South Africa has not lost a game to Afghanistan in T20s as they have faced each other only twice, with the South Africans coming out victorious in both games. But the past performance may not be ideal for the future performance. Are the Afghans capable of causing an upset of the ages, or will the South Africans continue with their winning form?

 

South Africa vs Afghanistan Today Match Prediction

Can the squad of South Africa carry the hope to victory, or will Afghanistan pull off the upset of the tournament? South Africa is on the rampage, destroying all its opponents, while Afghanistan is on a high after having shocked Australia. The record of both teams are on par with each other, but cricket can turn on its head in T20 matches. Thus, we are in favour of the South African batsmen to overpower the Afghan middle order, which is not steady. Will they even make it to the finals for the very first time? This is one battle you cannot afford to miss. Place your bets on South Africa to win this match.
