Match Preview

SA vs ZIM: South Africa will face Zimbabwe in the 18 matches of the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022. Both teams belong to Group 2. The fixture will be played at Bellerive Oval in Hobart on Monday, 24th October 2022.

The Proteas are not having a good run at the moment. They previously featured in a bilateral series against India. However, they couldn’t make an impact and lost the series 1-2. The lethal bowling unit has impressed a little, but the batters have heavily let them down. The skipper, Temba Bavuma, is going through a rough patch. Hence, a tough road is ahead for them. 

Meanwhile, Zimbabwe made its way into the Super 12 after successfully defeating Scotland. Sikandar Raza ruled the game with the bat as well as the ball. He gave away only 20 runs in his quota of 4 overs with a wicket. Raza came into a difficult position in the chase. However, he kept his nerves and scored a blistering knock of 40 off 23 deliveries. That knock made Zimbabwe storm into the Super 12 stage.
