Match Preview

In match five of the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8s, reigning champions England will be up against South Africa. The match is set to be played on Friday, June 21, at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in St. Lucia. South Africa have been unbeaten this season, whereas England bounced back and sailed all the way through to the Super 8. In their first Super 8 fixture of the season, England defeated West Indies. On the other hand, South Africa took down debutants and other co-hosts USA. 

The winner of the upcoming match might book themselves a seat in the semifinals of the 2024 season. 

Toss Prediction

England and South Africa share a long and glorious rivalry of 25 matches in the T20I format so far. Speaking of their last five matches, the England skipper came out victorious in three tosses, whereas the Proteas skipper could win two of five tosses. Considering this, we think South Africa captain Aiden Markram would win the toss and equal the toss tally 3-3. 

Win Possibility

As mentioned, England and South Africa have played 25 T20I games so far, but it is all even-stevens as both sides managed to win 12 games apiece, while one ended without any result. Speaking of this season, South Africa played like a unit in their game against the USA. The game saw Quinton de Kock smashing 80 runs with Aiden Markram also coming up with a solid knock. Along with them, Heinrich Klassen and Tristan Stubbs also displayed some decent performances. With the ball, the pace trio of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Marco Jansen did good work. 

On the other hand, England were dangerous against the Windies and put on a rock-solid performance. Names like Sam Curran, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, and Chris Jordan have been fairly well in the competition so far. After facing a slump in the performance in the early T20 World Cup 2024, the reigning champions made a comeback and how. The squad led by Jos Buttler would want to continue with the same kind of performance. 

England have been a more experienced and far more successful team than the Proteas in the tournament. Considering this, we think England would win the game and possibly reserve their berth in the semis. 

Predicted Powerplay Score and Average First Inning Score

Considering this, we think the game’s first-inning score could be between 165 and 175 and the powerplay score could hover around 45-50.
