Match Prediction Women's T20 World Cup 2020 4th match - England v South Africa
The 4th match of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 between England and South Africa will be played at the W.A.C.A. Ground in Perth.
Many look at South Africa as the Dark Horses of the tournament as the team has been resurgent after the return of Skipper Dane van Niekerk.
The South Africans brushed aside Sri Lanka in the opening warm-up fixture by 41 runs. The team posted 146 runs on the board courtesy of good hands from Mignon du Preez and Marizanne Kapp. Sune Luus and Chloe Tryon then starred with the ball.
In their next game against Australia, they ran the hosts close with skipper Niekerk standing out with a 62-run knock. Marizanne Kapp impressed with figures of 4-16-4 but the team lost by four wickets.
The South Africans will take on England who are one of the contenders for the title. England started their campaign in style with a six-wicket victory over New Zealand led by bowlers Katherine Brunt, Anya Shrubsole and Sophie Ecclestone. Daniel Wyatt and Heather Knight shone with the bat.
However, they were blown away in their next game against Sri Lanka as the team suffered a 10-wicket defeat. Amy Jones and Tammy Beaumont were the top-scorers in that game.
The odds are in favour of England. But South Africa, to be fair, possess more match winners. If they can convert it into a team performance, they can very well eke out a win.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:
England - Tammy Beaumont, Katherine Brunt, Kate Cross, Freya Davies, Sophie Ecclestone, Georgia Elwiss, Sarah Glenn, Amy Jones (wk), Heather Knight (capt), Nat Sciver, Anya Shrubsole (vice-capt), Mady Villiers, Fran Wilson, Lauren Winfield, Danni Wyatt.
South Africa - Trisha Chetty (wk), Nadine de Klerk, Mignon du Preez, Shabnim Ismail, Marizanne Kapp, Ayabonga Khaka, Masabata Klaas, Lizelle Lee, Sune Luus, Nonkululeko Mlaba, Dane van Niekerk (capt), Tumi Sekhukhune, Nondumiso Shangase, Chloe Tryon (vice-capt), Laura Wolvaardt.
