South Africa’s batsmen will come under close examination as they face the USA in the opening Super 8 match at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua. South Africa have had mixed tournament results so far and would hope to start this stage on a positive note against a determined USA team.South Africa Vs USA

The USA have made an impressionful debut at the T20 World Cup and finished second in Group A with five points from four matches, after beginning their campaign with a seven-wicket victory against Canada and then defeating Pakistan via super overs. Unfortunately for Monank Patel’s squad their final Group A fixture against Ireland was called off due to rain.South Africa Vs USA

USA batsmen will need to stand up to South Africa’s fast bowlers led by Tabraiz Shamsi and Saurabh Netravalkar’s new-ball attack of fast bowlers like Tabraiz Shamsi and Saurabh Netravalkar with deep hitting to provide Andries Gous and Shadley Van Schalkwyk more opportunities to score runs.South Africa Vs USA

USA’s top order must score early runs in the powerplay as they trail South Africa by an outsized margin in this department. They averaged only 9.63 runs during powerplay time in their three matches played on New York and Kingstown pitches, which will not be tolerated by Proteas coach Jaco van Zyl.South Africa Vs USA

USA was no one’s favourite entering this tournament, yet they have made it this far under Monank Patel’s guidance. After making an impression in their inaugural match against South Africa at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Tuesday, USA will look to continue this run on Wednesday against South Africa at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.South Africa Vs USA

The Proteas will likely be wary of an opponent that remains undefeated in this competition, but this provides them with an ideal opportunity to put any concerns to bed and get back into winning form. Their batting has been problematic thus far but providing Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller with sufficient platforms could give them enough momentum to find themselves back on top once more.

Antigua’s slow pitch should provide South African bowlers, particularly Tabraiz Shamsi, an asset. Ottneil Baartman and Marco Jansen could provide further pressure against USA while Shadley van Schalkwyk and Nosthush Kenjige could work to keep things tight early on.South Africa Vs USA

An American victory would secure them an A2-seed for the next stage of this tournament. Led by Monank Patel, USA entered as underdogs but stunned the cricket world with their incredible performance during group stage play. They will now meet South Africa in Super 8 stage battle which should prove tight rather than simple.

England face a monumental task and are determined to break free of their semi-final-stage curse at major ICC tournaments. Their bowling attack led by Anrich Nortje is strong while Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie and Akeal Hosein have all found form during this tournament.

However, England batting has been subpar so far and must step up their efforts against this powerful West Indies attack. Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow must perform strongly; otherwise the middle order can bail them out if necessary.

India have received a relatively easy draw, and are expected to easily progress through their group stage, although much will depend on Rohit Sharma and his men’s performances against Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Australia in their subsequent matches. According to pundit Aakash Chopra, however, India may face stiff challenges from USA but should eventually overcome them and reach the final four.South Africa Vs USA

South Africa Vs USA | Prediction

South Africa will feel confident of reaching the semi-finals after winning all four group stage matches, yet none of their top order batsmen has scored 100 runs so far this tournament. They may find some relief against USA at North Sound Antigua; although past encounters there have not provided ideal conditions for their batsman.South Africa Vs USA

The USA will attempt to neutralise South Africa’s pacers while exploiting inexperienced batsmen. Aaron Jones and Saurabh Netravalkar should pose significant threats at this level for them; additionally they also boast some potency bowlers capable of giving South African bowlers trouble.

Tabraiz Shamsi could provide the team with some vital wickets during key moments in the match, with support from veteran keeper-batsman Jessie Lamptey to aid him in his hunt for scalps.

USA’s batting line-up has been one of the highlights of their group stage performances, so they must play with disciplined cricket to build an innings and remain unbeaten at this level. They must avoid early wicket losses while scoring quickly during powerplay will give them an edge. They have some power-hitters who could put on a memorable show.
