South Africa will win

Japan – South Africa Match Prediction | 22-08-2019

South Africa hasnt done well chasing as their 3 losses came fielding first. The middle order couldnt score runs and build partnership in middle overs, as South Africa kept losing wickets regularly. Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller added 53 runs for the 5th wicket between over 30 to 40 as their partnership ended with Dussens wicket. While theyve lost 2 matches batting first, their performance in those matches was better and the bowlers had created chances for the side. After de Kock was out in the 20th over, 2 more wickets fell in the next 10 overs.

Sri Lanka and South Africa do not have the firepower in their batting order to chase big totals, while the bowlers can do wonders to defend any total. Both teams would look to bat first on winning the toss. Toss will clearly play a big role in this match. Given their bowling attack and presence of Faf du Plessis, Quinton de Kock at the top, while David Miller in the middle, South Africa will start as favourites to win this match.

The Nigerians must be high on confidence ahead of the quarter-finals clash against South Africa, but seeing that the Bafana Bafana eliminated home country Egypt in the last 16, we are not tempted to put our money on Alex Iwobi and Co. The Super Eagles came from behind to beat Cameroon in the last 16, with Odion Ighalo adding two goals to his account. A place in the Africa Cup of Nations semis will be at stake when Nigeria and South Africa face each other at Cairo International Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Or will the South Africans steal the thunder and win their 3rd match of the ICC World Cup 2019? An injury at this point may cost the team dearly. However, things seem to be moving back on track since Kohli has been cleared off for the upcoming match against South Africa. Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, injured his thumb in a practice session. Currently, India is second on the ODI table while South Africa is 3rd. Will India win their first match of the season?

Nigeria vs South Africa Prediction & Match Preview

A lot of them. Its as simple as that. Rabada has been simply sensational and has been consistently firing for South Africa in the games during the build up to the World Cup. If the Proteas are to go far in the tournament, Rabada need to pick up wickets. One of the brightest young prospects in international cricket right now, Kagiso Rabada will be spearheading South Africas bowling attack even with Dale Steyn present in the squad.

A close encounter is on the horizon and we believe that one goal is going to separate the two sides at Al Salam Stadium. are going to leave their hearts on the field. The fact that they head into their opener without pressure could prove fruitful for Ibrahim Kamaras troops and, one thing is for sure, Wilfried Zaha and Co. The Bafana Bafana, on the other hand, are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet and we predict that they are going to rely on their solid defence in Mondays clash.

While Imran Tahir was economical with 2 for 41 in his 10 overs. Their only win was against Afghanistan where Tahir and Morris picked 4 and 3 wickets wrapping up Afghanistan innings for 125 runs. In the recent contest against Pakistan, Lungi Ngidi was top bowler for South Africa with 3 for 64 in his 9 overs. With just 1 win and 5 losses in the World Cup 2019, South Africa are out of the race to semis. Chasing a 309 runs target, South Africa were 1 down for 4 runs as Hashim Amla was out for 2. An 87-runs partnership followed between Quinton de Kock and Fat du Plessis for the 2nd wicket.

The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 is here. And it goes without saying that when the first ball is bowled on Thursday, May 30 at the iconic Lords cricket ground in London, fans across the world will keep an eye out for the players they have chosen in their fantasy teams. The action on the field is surely going to keep cricket fanatics hooked to the tournament but with the emergence of Fantasy leagues, fans of the game can also put their cricketing knowledge to use and make a Fantasy side which could win them a lot of money provided their players perform well during the match.

Ivory Coast will be looking to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Uganda in their last friendly game when they take on South Africa in the opening match of their Africa Cup of Nations campaign. The Elephants aim to bring glory days back to the national team, but this time out they are not considered one of main favourites to win the trophy.

Goals from Odion Ighalo and Alex Iwobi just after the hour mark though secured their progression. Slender 1-0 wins over Burundi and Guinea saw them maintain a perfect start but a shock 2-0 defeat to Madagascar in their final group match resulted in them finishing second in their group. They were also made to work for their place in the quarter-finals as despite taking the lead against Cameroon, they headed into the break 2-1 behind. Possessing an extremely talented squad, Gernot Rohrs Nigeria did not have the most convincing group stage ever.
