OKBET CRICKET : Can the underdog South African ( SA Cricket )side overcome its World Cup losing streak?


SA Cricket : South Africa travels to Australia with a batting line-up that does not include many of the big names that it formerly did, but it is brimming with explosive potential and is supported by one of the most formidable bowling assaults in the competition. With very modest expectations but a great deal of promise, might 2018 be the year when South Africa achieves its goals for once and for all?

Squad: Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, Reeza Hendricks, Keshav Maharaj, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Wayne Parnell, Kagiso Rabada, Rillee Rossouw, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs, Marco Jansen. Bjorn Fortuin, Andile Phehlukwayo, and Lizaad Williams are the players that are on standby.

The players that finished in the top two spots in the event (2009 and 2014)

Despite consistently showing up to tournaments over the years with exceptionally good sides, South Africa has not been successful in winning any version of the ICC World Cup. The Proteas’ greatest performance in a Men’s Twenty20 World Cup was a semi-final participation in 2009 and again in 2014.

In 2009, South Africa was unable to overcome Pakistan’s total of 150 and finished the match at 142/5, falling seven runs short of the victory. And in 2014, India, led by Virat Kohli, responded to their opponent’s score of 172/4 with relative ease, accomplishing their goal with five balls to spare.

Big Game Against India (October 30) – In the last week before the Super 12 stage, the MRF ICC Men’s T20I Team Rankings had India on top, with South Africa in fourth, behind only Pakistan.

Back-to-back games against the Asian powerhouses are on South Africa’s tournament itinerary. If the Proteas had won their first two games, which is a tall order, a victory against India will give them the upper hand in Group.

With Jasprit Bumrah out of the Indian bowling attack, the South African big hitters would be favorites to win. Certainly Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, and company are the only bowling unit capable of posing a threat to the formidable Indian top six.

Influential Participant

The speed merchant Anrich Nortje might provide a huge boost to his team’s chances on the bouncy Australian wickets, adding to what is already one of the best bowling assaults in the game.

Although Nortje’s performance in T20 Internationals has been solid rather than outstanding, he has shown during his professional career with his franchise that he has the necessary raw speed and skill set to pose a serious threat to even the best hitters in the world.

Nortje’s contribution is crucial since securing wickets in the Powerplay is likely to be a deciding factor for any winning team.


South Africa’s batting lineup seems to be well-suited to succeed in Australian conditions, even without Rassie van der Dussen. All of the Super 12 teams include dangerous hitters like Quinton de Kock, Heinrich Klaasen, Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram, David Miller, and Rillee Rossouw.

Miller, in particular, has settled into international play in a way that should give South Africa’s rivals pause.

There is concern about captain Temba Bavuma, who leads the team but is not a lock to start if he is not in top form and has a high shooting percentage. If Bavuma doesn’t show signs of improvement in the group stage, it’s possible that the selectors may leave him off the team.

The arrival of Tristan Stubbs in the past year or two has been the game-changer for the team, as he provides tremendous power in the last third of the field.

And few teams can equal the South Africans when it comes to ball skills. While Tabraiz Shamsi had been sick, he seemed to be fully recovered during the last warm-up game, which further bolstered the spin options with Keshav Maharaj’s outstanding performance.

South Africa stands out, though, because of its pacers. The offensive lineup of Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, and Marco Jansen seems like it might win a tournament.
