Sri Lanka and South Africa have experienced mixed results (1 win and 1 loss) in the tournament so far. Interestingly, both the teams have lost only to Australia and face each other to grab another two points. Sri Lanka got to a better start in their first game against Bangladesh, where they comfortably chased a target of 171. However, in the last match against Australia, Sri Lanka lost by 7 wickets. It was quite an easy win for Australia as David Warner and Aaron Finch provided a brilliant start, and Steve Smith and Marcus Stoinis guided the team over the line with 18 balls to spare. South Africa suffered an early blow in their opening match of the tournament when Australia defeated them in a thrilling final over contest. Despite scoring a below-par score of 118, the Proteas bowlers took the game deep. Led by Temba Bavuma, South Africa bounced back in the second game and registered a clinical victory over West Indies. Although South Africa lost the opener early, Hendricks and van der Dussen brought the chasing on track before Markram chipped in and gave the first win to the team.
The most anticipated game of the T20 world cup after India-Pakistan is the clash between fierce rivals England and Australia. It’s going to be interesting to witness an exciting encounter between the table-toppers in the shorter format of the game. Riding high on confidence from their back to back victories in the league, both teams have displayed complete dominance against their opponents. England and Australian bowlers have enjoyed enormous success in relatively slow and low pitches, and batters rose to the occasion. Jason Roy and David Warner have found the rhythm which will strengthen the batting lineup for both teams. Tymal Mills, Chris Woakes, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins will play a vital role early in the innings before Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid, Glenn Maxwell, and Adam Zampa start spinning the ball. An intense test for the mighty bowling and batting, whoever wins will top the points table.
