Sa vs Net Live Score (South Africa vs Netherlands)
The world of cricket is abuzz with the upcoming T-20 World Cup in 2022. This will be the first time that the Netherlands will be participating in the tournament, and they are set to take on South Africa in their opening match. The two teams have met previously in Twenty20 Internationals (T20I), with South Africa winning all three matches. However, this will be the first time that they will be playing each other in the T-20 World Cup. So, who will come out on top in this much-anticipated match? Only time will tell. But in the meantime, let’s take a look at how these two teams stack up against each other.
After a stunning day of upsets that saw defending champions Germany exit the tournament, all eyes were on Sunday’s late game between the Netherlands and South Africa. The Dutch had already qualified for the knockout stage, but a win would ensure they topped the group. South Africa, meanwhile, needed a victory to stand any chance of progressing. In the end, it was the Netherlands who came out on top, winning 3-1 to finish first in Group B. The result meant that South Africa became the first team to be eliminated from the 2018 World Cup. It was a disappointing end for the ‘Bafana Bafana’, who had put in some valiant performances throughout the tournament. They can hold their heads high knowing that they gave everything they had against a very strong Dutch side.

India will play Zimbabwe in the last match of the Group no 2 on 5 November, 2022. Both the teams would be hosted by the MCG stadium and official match timings are local time and IST. It’s a do or die match for India because if they lose this match, they will be in a weak position to qualify for the semi-final. There is no prediction for the rain as well so we’ll hopefully witness a complete game.

India’s win against Pakistan and Bangladesh turned out to be a big and an exciting victory.
India has some players in their team which are considered the best of the best all over the world. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are two of such players. Virat’s innings of 82 match winning and unbeaten runs against Pakistan was termed by himself as his one of the best innings so far. Moreover, Virat Kohli is on 3rd spot on the list of most runs in international cricket by Indian players and most runs in the T20 World Cups as well while Rohit Sharma can provide an explosive start. KL Rahul’s comeback is a good omen for India as we have seen this in the match against Bangladesh where he contributed with bat and in the fielding as well. Suryakumar Yadav is considered the Mr.360 of the Indian team as he has a variety of shots. Hardik Pandya is a brilliant finisher of the Indian team who is a fine pace bowler too.
The kind of performances Arshdeep, Bhuvneshwar and Md Shami have given until now in this tournament have benefitted India immensely. The Indian team currently has 4 pacers in it which is a good strategy considering Australian pitches favor pace bowlers. The Indian team is looking like a very balanced side.
The Zimbabwean team has given some exceptional performance in this T20 World Cup 2022 both in the group stage first and now in the Super-12. They performed magnificently well in the group stage and qualified for the Super-12 and just in their 2nd match of this event, they were able to defeat Pakistan in a thrilling contest. They were successful in defending 130 runs against Pakistan.
Zimbabwe’s team has some fine talent in their team. Blessing Muzarabani, who is a young fast bowler, was also named in their T20 World Cup squad. He bowled superbly against Pakistan. Another star player is Sikander Raza. During the past 1 year, he has scored 516 runs in 15 T20s at an average of 39.69 and holds the record of getting 7 man of match awards this year, the most by any cricketer in a year. While Wessly Madhevere is also in brilliant form from the previous year. The notable bowling performance from the Zimbabwe side from the previous 1 year has been from Sikander Raza and Luke Jongwe. These will be the key players of the Zimbabwe team. Sikander Raza’s performance in the qualifiers of this world cup ensured his team reached the Super-12 stage of the World cup. He can give a fine all-round performance even on bad days. Meanwhile, Richard Ngarava, another pacer of the Zimbabwean squad, remained economical as well in previous few matches.
The Indian team has more experienced players and considering past records and their bilateral contests, Zimbabwe doesn’t stand a chance against India. If they beat India, it would be an upset, a very big one
