USA skipper Monank Patel was expected to be back to the playing 11 against Ireland after missing in the India match but the game was abandoned. We are anticipating his return to lead in this crucial match.

USA Key Players

  • Aaron Jones – Aaron Jones is the leading run scorer for USA in T20 World Cup 2024 with 141 runs in 3 matches at a strike rate of 160. On this difficult pitch, he will be a key batsman for the team to take the team above par score.
  • Andries Gous – Gous has scored 102 runs in 3 matches at a decent strike rate of 132. We back him to score important runs in this match. He has ample experience of T20 cricket with more than 1300 runs.
  • Saurabh Netravalkar – Netravalkar removed the top batters Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli after defeating Pakistan in a super over. He deserves all the attention and praise that he is getting for his brilliant bowling skills. He has picked 4 wickets in 3 matches at an average of 13.00.
  • Ali Khan – Ali Khan has picked 3 wickets in 3 matches at a strike rate of 22.6. He has been bowling well in this world cup but giving away many runs. We back him to pick wickets on this hard surface as there will be bounce for him.

  • David Miller – Miller is currently the leading run scorer for the team with 101 runs in 4 matches at an average of 50. Without his efforts, South Africa could’ve lost a few games in this world cup. We back him for another crucial knock.
  • Heinrich Klaasen – Klaasen has been in top form from the last year’s ODI World Cup and he came to this world cup after some confident hitting at the IPL 2024. He has scored 72 runs so far but these runs were crucial on the tough pitches.

USA vs South Africa Betting Odds

USA and South Africa have played well in the group stage but South Africa performed better comparatively. They finished at the top of the points table with 4 wins while USA had luck along with good performance, to qualify to Super 8. The bookmakers are backing South Africa to win at 1.15.

Who will win USA vs South Africa Match?

Both the teams have proved their mettle to qualify for the super 8 round. USA is not as experienced as South Africa in the international circuit and South Africa has been a difficult opponent for the top teams. USA will try to give a tough fight to the Proteas but the latter has an experienced and quality line-up. South Africa’s bowling line-up will be threatening for the USA batters. We back South Africa to win.
