Netherlands vs S. Africa 16th Match ICC T20 World Cup 2024

South Africa will be seeking revenge when they face the Netherlands in a crucial T20 World Cup 2024 clash. The last time these two teams met in an ICC tournament, the Dutch team delivered a crushing defeat to the South Africans, eliminating them from the 2022 T20 World Cup.

The Netherlands (NED) started strong in this year’s tournament, easily defeating Nepal in a one-sided match. Scott Edwards, their captain, is pleased with the team’s performance and hopes his batters can maintain their momentum to secure a third consecutive win against South Africa.

On the other side, Aiden Markram is counting on the South African (SA) team to replicate their dominant performance against Sri Lanka. Anrich Nortje was particularly impressive, taking four wickets and dismantling the Sri Lankan batting lineup, bowling them out for just 77 runs.

Bowlers are definitely enjoying themselves on this surface. The drop-in pitch is still settling, causing significant ball movement and making batting quite challenging.

After two matches and four innings, no team has managed to score over 100 runs. Both pacers and spinners are successfully taking wickets, so batters need to take their time before going for big shots. The par score is expected to be around 130.
