South Africa will meet the Netherlands in their final Super 12 fixture at the Adelaide Oval on Sunday. The equation is pretty simple for the Proteas, they need to beat the Dutch side to confirm a birth in the semi-final of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022.

Netherlands, on the other hand, have the opportunity to become a party spoiler for the South Africans and do Pakistan a favour. If they beat South Africa, then Pakistan only need to defeat Bangladesh to go through to the semis.

Pitch and Weather report:

Due to the morning game, the pitch may prove challenging for the batters as the ball won’t skid on as it does the other way around. Although, the short square boundaries might give some advantage to score quick runs. Sunday’s forecast is clear, and fans can expect a proper contest.

Probable XIs:

South Africa: Temba Bavuma (capt), Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi

Netherlands: Stephan Myburgh, Max O’Dowd, Tom Cooper, Colin Ackermann, Bas de Leede, Scott Edwards (capt), Roelof van der Merwe, Logan van Beek, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren, Brandon Glover

Recent form:

South Africa: LWWWL(last five completed matches, most recent first)

What they said:

“It’s a crucial game for us. We still have to play well to beat them. They are a quality side. They’ve shown they can play good cricket. Hopefully, we bring our A game,” said Proteas pacer Wayne Parnell ahead of the match.

“We understand the significance of the game if we do beat South Africa. But for us, it’s just a game and beating South Africa, so we don’t think too far outside of that,” said Dutch all-rounder Roelof van der Merwe.
