World T20 Series 2022

Super 12, Group 2, Match 40- SA vs NED


South Africa will face the Netherlands in Match 40 of the World T20 Series 2022 at Adelaide Oval. It will be a must-win game for the Proteas to get to the semi-finals. South Africa failed to chase a target of 142 runs in 14 overs against Pakistan in their previous league encounter and will want to improve their performance. Aiden Markram and Anrich Nortje will be their key players.

The Netherlands, on the other side, has only won one of their four games. But they have the skill to pull off an upset in this game and finish the tournament on a high note. In their last match, the Netherlands easily chased down the total of 118 against Zimbabwe. Max O'Dowd and Paul Van Meekeren have been their standout players and will once again play a crucial role on Sunday.
