South Africa are on top of the Group D points table winning all of their 3 games so far. Aiden Markram and Co. will be happy to have qualified for the Super 8 round of the T20 World Cup 2024 but not so much with their recent win over Bangladesh.

The Proteas finished with 113 for 6 batting first against Bangladesh at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. It is a low-scoring venue where India and Pakistan also struggled with the bat.

As they gear up to face Nepal in their last group stage match at the Arnos Vale Ground at St Vincent, they would be hoping for a comeback with the bat.

Nepal too are in search of a comeback as far as the batting is concerned. Their performance against the Netherlands was poor and their second match was abandoned due to rain.

Rohit Paudel, Kushal Malla, and Dipendra Singh are crucial for Nepal’s comeback with the bat. These 3 will face some of the toughest bowlers in T20 cricket on a balanced wicket at the Arnos Vale Ground.

South Africa Preview

South African bowlers led them to their 3rd win of the tournament as they defended 113 runs against Bangladesh in their last match in New York. Keshav Maharaj, Anrich Nortje, and Kagiso Rabada led the bowling effort for the Proteas.

It hasn’t been easy for the batters. All of their 3 matches were played at the same venue in New York. And the batters struggled every single time. They lost 4 wickets on their way to a 78-run target against Sri Lanka in the opening game.

In the second match, they lost 6 wickets as they reached the 104-run target against Netherlands in the 19th Over. As they come to St Vincent for their last match of the group stage, South Africa will be hopeful of a batting comeback.

The pitch here would be better than that in New York. The likes of Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram, and Heinrich Klaasen should be able to get back in rhythm and make some big contributions against a relatively inexperienced bowling attack.

David Miller has been delivering consistently for the side in the lower middle order. He scored an unbeaten 59 against the Netherlands followed by a much slower 29-run knock against Bangladesh. 

Reeza Hendricks and de Kock will be crucial at the top of this lineup. They must get back in form and deliver a big start while the ball is new and the field restrictions are on.

Overall, South Africa are a much stronger squad in comparison and will have the upper hand in this contest.

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Reeza Hendricks, Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram (c), Tristan Stubbs, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Ottneil Baartman

Nepal Preview

Nepal struggled in the warm-up games and haven’t looked good in the group match either. They were bowled out cheaply by the Dutch bowlers and though they bowled well to make the opposition work for their win, bowling alone will not suffice for a win.

Skipper Rohit Paudel will be expecting his openers Kushal Bhurtel and Aasif Sheikh to build a steady and impactful partnership at the top. The middle-order batters are the core of this batting lineup.

Rohit Paudel at number 4 followed by Kushal Malla and Dipendra Singh will play a key role in setting up a competitive total in this match. It is a deep batting lineup with some handy batters lower down the order.

The bowlers have looked quite promising for Nepal in recent years as they faced some of the big teams in the Asia Cup last year. Karan KC, Sompal Kami, and Dipendra Singh Airee will be leading the bowling attack.

They looked in good touch in their last outing and if Nepal were to bowl first, they might make a big impact. For them to win the game for Nepal, the batters need to put up a competitive score if they bat first. 

Nepal Predicted Playing XI:

Kushal Bhurtel, Aasif Sheikh (wk), Anil Sah, Rohit Paudel (c), Kushal Malla, Dipendra Singh Airee, Gulsan Jha, Sompal Kami, Karan KC, Abinash Bohara, Sagar Dhakal

Weather Conditions

It is a balanced wicket that offers a bit more help for the bowlers. The highest total chased on this pitch is 158 runs. That shows the surface is slightly more in favor of the bowlers. We can be in for another low-scoring thriller. The weather will be partly cloudy with a high of 31 degrees Celsius in Kingstown on the match day.

RSA vs NEP Pitch Report

St Arnos Vale in Kingstown, St Vincent will be the venue for the South Africa vs Nepal fixture of the T20 World Cup 2024. The average 1st innings score here is very low in T20Is and there haven’t been any domestic T20s in CPL played here. We reckon something around 160-165 should be a match-winning total on this ground.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams bowling first have won 3 of the 5 T20Is played at this venue. It hasn’t been a very high-scoring venue and once again, the bowlers are likely to have the upper hand in the contest. As such, we believe bowling first should give the team an advantage as they can put the opposition on the back foot early on in the match.

South Africa may have struggled with the bat but is a much stronger and superior squad in comparison. They’ve got plenty of T20 experience and we expect them to dominate Nepal in every aspect of the game. South Africa will start as clear favorites in our match prediction.
