England vs South Africa on June 21

 

Match 45 of the T20 World Cup 2024 promises to be an exciting encounter as England (ENG) and South Africa (SA) are set to face off in the Group 2 Super 8 clash. The two are scheduled to meet at the Darren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet, St Lucia, on Friday (June 21). England did not have a great start to their tournament—winning two out of four league matches—but they somehow managed to make it to the Super 8 stage. However, an eight-wicket thrashing of hosts West Indies in the opener ensured the defending champions would not start the second round on the back foot. Meanwhile, South Africa won all their group matches and started the Super 8 phase on a winning note, defeating the co-hosts United States by 18 runs. Will England continue their winning momentum or will the Proteas remain unbeaten?  . 

Best economical pick Anrich Nortje is currently the second-best bowler in the series with 10 wickets in five matches. With the pitch likely to assist the pace bowlers more, Nortje is expected to have an effective outing in St Lucia.

Top captains & vice captains – A Phili Salt assault in the Super 8 saw West Indies crushed by eight wickets. The England opener scored an unbeaten 47 off 87 with seven fours and five sixes. Salt is likely to continue his good form as the upcoming match will be held at the same venue. Quinton de Kock had a dull start to his World Cup campaign, but the tables turned once he entered the Super 8 stage. The keeper-batter was adjudged Player of the Match against the USA for scoring 74 off 40 balls. 

Smart pick David Miller proved in the match against the Netherlands that he can be there when the team is in trouble. The southpaw steered SA to victory with an unbeaten 59 out of misery. He is a key player for the Proteas.

Cautious Pick Reeza Hendricks has struggled so far in the tournament. His highest score is 43 against Nepal, but that too came at a concerning strike rate of 87.76.

My XI – Phili Salt (Captain), Quinton de Kock (Vice-Captain), David Miller, Anrich Nortje, Moeen Ali, Jos Buttler, Heinrich Klaasen, Tristan Stubbs, Jonny Bairstow, Aiden Markram, Liam Livingstone
