Match Preview

SA vs NED: The last day of the group stages of the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022 will commence on 6th November 2022. It will be a triple header. The first game will be played between South Africa and Netherlands. The game will take place at Adelaide Oval. 

South Africa was unbeatable in the season until Pakistan handed them a 33-run defeat in a rain-hit game. They started off great after sending both Pakistani openers back into the hut. But Iftikhar and Shadab took the game away and posted a huge total of 185. South Africa started well and was above par. However, Shadab Khan took two quick wickets and brought the game back to life. After a brief break owing to rain, the game was reduced to 14 overs, and the Proteas were handed a target of 78, which they failed to achieve. Now, this game is a must-win for them. 

Meanwhile, Netherlands is already eliminated from the tournament. However, they can be a spoilsport for South Africa. They last defeated Zimbabwe. Netherlands bowled well and bowled them out for a total of 117. The batters took charge and chased the total in 18 overs itself. This will be their last match of the tournament.

Pitch Report for SA vs NED

The last game played at Adelaide Oval was a high-scoring game. Rain disruptions during the game are very likely. Pacers can dominate the game if bowled at the right line and length. Discipline is a must. Bowling first would be a good option on the wicket.

Match Predictions for SA vs NED

South Africa is the most probable winner of this fixture. They are in surreal form with the bat. But they are leaking a lot of runs in the death which is a major concern for them. This is a must-win game for them. Netherlands, on the other hand, are eliminated and have a chance to spoil other teams’ chances. Also, they would want to end the tournament on a high. A good contest of bat and ball is likely to play out.
