SA vs NEP Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

South Africa will take on Nepal in the 31st game of the T20 World Cup 2024. The game will be played at Arnos Vale Ground, Kingstown, St Vincent and will start at 5:00 AM IST on June 15

South Africa have already qualified for the Super 8s after winning three games on the trot. The wins have not been comprehensive but the Proteas managed to hold their nerves and fetch a win. However, they played all their games in New York where the conditions were not great so they get the benefit of the doubt, but the team will need their batters to find form ahead of Super 8s.

Meanwhile, Nepal suffered a defeat to Netherlands in the first game before their second match against Sri Lanka was washed out due to rain. Nepal now need wins in both their final games to stand a chance to qualify for the Super 8s.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

The conditions in New York were favourable for pacers, however, spinners are likely to play a major role in matches in West Indies thus we feel South Africa will play Tabraiz Shamsi in the next game, dropping Ottniel Baartman from the XI.

SA Key Players

  • Quinton de Kock – De Kock hasn’t done much so far in the T20 World Cup but he is South Africa’s one of the best batters in shorter formats and the team will pin hopes on him to get the team off to a flying start against Nepal.
  • Heinrich Klaasen –  Klaasen was magnificent in the IPL and he has by far been the best batter for South Africa. He played a gritty innings of 44 in 46 balls against Bangladesh in the last game and made a significant contribution to the team’s win.
  • Kagiso Rabada – Kagiso Rabada is the team’s lead pacer and will have to play a key role if South Africa have to win the T20 World Cup. Rabada is outstanding with the new ball and lethal at death and is likely to pick multiple wickets against Nepal.
  • Keshav Maharaj – The conditions in St. Vincent will help the spinners thus Maharaj will be one of the main players for South Africa heading into the crucial game. He picked three wickets for 27 runs against Bangladesh.

SA Team Form

South Africa have been decent in the T20 World Cup so far, winning three out of three games. 

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

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

Nepal Team News & Playing 11

NEP Team News

Nepal have played just one full match so far so the team making any changes to the playing XI is highly unlikely. There are also no reports of an injury to any player thus the team should play the same combination against South Africa.

NEP Key Players

  • Kushal Bhurtel – Bhurtel is a very talented player and certainly capable to counter punch a strong Proteas attack. He is an aggressive batter thus if he spends some time at the wicket, he can do some serious damage to the South Africa attack.
  • Rohit Paudel – Captain Rohit Paudel is technically sound and can play spin as well as pace with ease. He played a decent innings of 35 against Netherlands and will be eyeing a good show against South Africa as well.
  • Dipendra Airee – Airee has done some remarkable things in last one year for Nepal. He scored a nine ball fifty and hit six sixes in an over. The thing that stands out for Airee was the consistency at which he played game changing inning for South Africa. He will play the role of the designated finisher for Nepal. 
  • Karan KC – Karan is the team’s primary pacer and a lot will rest on him ion how Nepal fare against South Africa. If he can pick a few early wickets, anything can happen.

NEP Team Form

Nepal have played two games so far. They lost the game to Netherlands before the match against Sri Lanka was washed out.

Nepal Predicted Playing 11

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
