As we move towards the last day of the super 12, we will get to know about the final 2 semi-finalists ( NZ and ENG have qualified from Group 1) South Africa vs Netherlands, the must-win encounter for the proteas as they have lost their last match vs Pakistan, they will look to seal the contest comfortably. Proteas is too good for the contest tbh.
Match Time: 05:30 AM IST / 12:00 AM GMT / 10:30 AM LOCAL
South Africa has been a force to reckon with in this WT20 as they have dominated every match they have played except the last Rain affected match. The Pace bowling of South Africa has been the key for them specially Lungi Ngidi and Nortje, Rabada has a Tournament to forget so far, and Maharaj/Parnell has a decent Tournament. They will look to seal the match easily as on paper south Africa looks comfortably ahead. But this WC maybe has been the most competitive T20 WC. Look for it.
Netherlands in their last match took zimbabwe by surprise by stopping them to 117 and chasing it down, probably we will call this an upset. The Dutch have played poor Cricket in this WC to be fair and just average at max tbh. Their bowling has been doing good but fielding and batting have disappointed them so far in the Tournament. They will look to Spoil the party of South Africans and proteas are also known for panicking in big pressure moments.

Key Players/Must-Have Dream11 Picks
Lungi Ngidi- He has been one the best performer for the proteas this WC. His variations have been good on these Aussie decks because of the fact that he is a “hit the deck bowler”, he gets good purchases from the surface. Ngidi has taken 7 wickets in this tournament so far.
Quinton de Cock- QDK has been good in this tournament but his last 2 outings have been mediocre as he has just managed to pull 1 run in his team’s last 2 contests against PAK and IND. He will look to assure the win of SA and perform in the KOs.
Max O’Dowd- Guy has been the 2nd highest run-getter of the Tournament with very fine knocks in the tournament. He will look to counter the extra pace and bounce of the SA pacers as he has some issues against the short stuff.
Paul van Meekeren- The best pacer of the Dutch, he has the rising ball as his main weapon, and he uses slower ones as well for deceiving the batters. He took 3 wickets in the last match to stop zimbabwe from reaching a good total. He will look to make his name as many will be watching the contest throughout the globe.
