South Africa is the most unlucky team of the ICC Events. They have never won any world title till now. Even though the team participates in each world cup as favorites but do not finishes off in style and give up at the very last moment. Team South Africa Schedule for the Twenty-20 World Cup is given below.
Team South Africa is in Group 1. The group seems a bit easier than group 1, which is the most dangerous group of the two. The following teams will take on South Africa according to the following schedule.
T20 World Cup Group 1
- West Indies
|South Africa||VS||West Indies||26-Oct-21|
Being favorites may be why the team South Africa does not perform well in the ICC tournaments. If this is the reason, this 20/20 world cup will be a good one for them as they not participating in the event as favorites.
On one paper, the team looks very strong and determined. It is packed with fast bowlers, good spinners, and powerful hitters like Miller. So, the team looks balanced, and they are also not carrying the extra bag of favorites. This may positively help the team.
Another factor that can help the team is that most of the key players are playing IPL. Playing IPL will help the players adopting to the conditions in a better way when they will play for the pride of their country.
The first-ever t20 world cup in history was held in South Africa in 2007. They participated as red hot favorites but choked at the last minute and out of the ICC Men’s t20 world cup. Since then, they have never come back strongly.
The question is that, is the team capable of winning the world. So, the answer is very simple, on paper, the South African Team looks very strong and complied. Secondly, there is no burden of being favorites which may help them hold nerves in the last minutes.
Whatever the conditions are, this is the team fighting strongly, hoping this time luck will favor them and we will witness a new champion of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.
