Highlights

West Indies and South Africa face each other in a do-or-die match Both teams will clash in their last match of T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8

New Delhi. Host West Indies and South Africa, captained by Rovman Powell, will clash in their last match of the Super 8 on Monday. Windies need to win this match at all costs to make it to the T20 World Cup 2024 semi-finals. After losing to England in the first match of the Super Eight stage, West Indies defeated co-host USA by 9 wickets. Now with a win, their entry into the last four will be confirmed, while a loss will decide the net run rate. And that too if USA defeats England in the second match.

On the other hand, South Africa (WI vs SA) has won all 6 matches so far. But it also needs a win. If it loses, its entry into the last four will also depend on the results of the remaining matches and the net run rate. However, the picture will be clear before the match for both the teams. The West Indies team failed to rotate the strike against England. But it overcame this shortcoming against America. Shai Hope scored 82 runs in 39 balls and apart from him/her, Nicholas Pooran and Andre Russell are also experts in aggressive batting in the death overs.
