Sri Lanka will play against South Africa in the Group D match of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. After winning the T20 World Cup for the first-time in 2014, Sri Lanka have gone down the ranks in the T20I format, but they still possess a few match winners who can turn over any opponent on their day. Meanwhile, after narrowly missing out on a semi-final spot in the last two editions of the T20 World Cup, South Africa will be looking to go all the way in the current edition of the tournament.

Pitch Report

The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium is a makeshift facility in New York, which hasn’t seen any T20 cricket in history. The drop-in pitches at this new venue have been brought from Adelaide Oval in Australia, where average first innings score is 174 in T20Is, and it could be a par score when Sri Lanka take on South Africa in their T20 World Cup opener.

Team Analysis

Sri Lanka

Wanindu Hasaranga is set to captain Sri Lanka in the T20 World Cup after becoming the first bowler to pick up most wickets in the last two editions of the tournament. Some of the key players for Sri Lanka in the T20 World Cup will be Kusal Mendis, Pathum Nissanka, Dasun Shanaka, Maheesh Theekshana, Matheesha Pathirana, and Dilshan Madushanka.

South Africa

Aiden Markram will be captaining South Africa in T20 World Cup 2024, but he is coming into the tournament on the back of a lacklustre season in the IPL with Sunrisers Hyderabad. The Proteas will be mainly reliant on the likes of Quinton de Kock, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Tristan Stubbs, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, and Tabraiz Shamsi, to make a telling impact during their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign.
