South Africa VS Afghanistan 2019 WORLD CUP MATCH NO. 21 : PLAYING XI, PITCH REPORT & PLAYERS UPDATE

Image result for afghanistan vs south africa

South Africa needs to win all five of their matches and expect for some chance to be able to qualify for the ICC World Cup 2019 semi-finals. They have two possible ‘easy’ games beside Afghanistan and Sri Lanka which they should win and try to get better their net run-rate a bit as well.

South Africa needs to get its approach right. On a player to player basis, there is no competition between South Africa and Afghanistan. Batsmen like Faf du Plessis, Quinton de Kock, and Hashim Amla are miles in front of where Afghanistan is.

Similarly, Kagiso Rabada, Chris Morris, Imran Tahir, and Beuran Hendricks are far higher to something the Afghans can congregate together.

We consider that Afghanistan needs to re-think its approach a little, though. It looks like Afghanistan is glad to start Mujeeb with the new ball, attack with Mohammad Nabi in the middle overs, and then set free Rashid Khan in the end overs.

Afghanistan could resist stopping the muscular South African batting from scoring a heap of runs.

Even more worrying has been the Afghan batting recital. Not even a single batsman from Afghanistan has exposed the nature needed to succeed at this level. Possibly Rahmat Shah is the closes Afghanistan has to a world-class batsman but he cannot win matches on his possess.

Pitch report & Weather forecast

Weather Report : Weather is forecasted to be light rain shower. The daytime temperature is going to reach 16 °c and the temperature is going to dip to 7 °c at night. We expect around 4.7 mm of precipitation to fall and cloud covering 64% of the sky, the humidity will be around 86%.

Pitch Report : The pitch here at this stadium is much favored as batting pitch. It has a decent amount of pace, bounce, and enough carry to allow the batsmen to play their shots freely. A large number of boundaries will be hit on this venue. The pitch may also have some help in it for the seamers.
