Analysis

The Proteas seemed to struggle a bit on the batting end and will hope to resolve their batting woes. Wicketkeeper batter Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram are the top batting picks from the side, with the latter being a dependable captain choice. The South African side will heavily depend on their bowling to make a comeback in their upcoming game with Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje being the key bowlers, alongside Tabraiz Shamsi.

The defending champions had a forgetful start to the tournament having being outplayed by England in their opening game. The Kieron Pollard-led side will aim to make the most of their upcoming game with T20 specialists like Andre Russell and Evin Lewis in their side. Akeal Hossein looked impressive in the last game and should be watched out for in the next game. Besides, Ravi Rampaul and Obed McCoy can fetch some points from the bowling department.
