South Africa Women With a Golden Chance to Book Their Ticket to Semifinals

The 20th and final group match of the Women's T20 World Cup 2023 will feature South Africa and Bangladesh Women going head to head. The two teams will clash at Newlands in Cape Town on Tuesday, February 21st.

The equation is pretty simple for the host South Africa. A win here takes them to the semifinals with the second spot in Group 1. They have two points with one win out of three games. New Zealand and Bangladesh both have four points each but South Africa have a superior net run-rate. 

The Protea women are coming off a defeat against the world champions Australia. Tazmin Brits looked in magnificent touch with 45 off 36 but they lost wickets at regular intervals in the second half of the innings, managing only 124/6. They had a fighting chance when Marizanne Kapp picked two scalps to reduce Australia to 40/3 in seven overs. 

Bangladesh Women haven't had a great time in the World Cup, having lost all three games. They would be looking to get a consolation win and play spoilsport. In their most recent fixture, they were hammered by 71 runs at the hands of New Zealand. 

None of their bowlers made any impact as Suzie Bates smashed an unbeaten 81 to power New Zealand to 189/3 - the highest total in the tournament. Murshida Khatun and Shorna Akter scored 30s but never really had a chance of coming close to the target. 

Team News

South Africa will be hoping for a good start from the opening pair of Laura Wolvaardt and Tazmin Brits. Marizanne Kapp, Sune Luus and Chloe Tryon form a solid middle order against this opponent. The bowling attack looks potent and could be too hot to handle for Bangladesh. Shabnim Ismail, Nadine de Klerk and Kapp form the pace unit while Nonkululeko Mlaba has been good in the spin department. Ayabonga Khaka missed the previous game and if fit, she should swap back in. 

Bangladesh will rely on Murshida Khatun, Sobhana Mostary and Nigar Sultana to deliver with the bat.  Shorna Akter looked in good touch in the previous game. They had left out Lata Mondal and it is likely to remain the same. The bowling attack comprises Ritu Moni, Salma Khatun, Nahida Akter, Marufa Akter and Fahima Khatun. 

Key Players 

Marizanne Kapp is the most valuable player in the South African side. She hasn't fired with the bat in the tournament yet but has done well with the ball, picking five wickets in three games. Kapp has 72 wickets in T20 internationals at an economy of 5.75 while also scoring 1140 runs at 19 average.

Tazmin Brits has done a pretty good job for South Africa in her T20I career so far. She has played 33 T20I matches, scoring 665 runs at an average of 27 and strike rate of 100. Brits has registered five fifties at this level and is coming off a superb 45 off 36 against Australia.
