A comprehensive 82-run lost at the hands of Sri Lanka in the event opener has virtually Zimbabwe out of the contention and the loss in today’s match will complete the paperwork. Even if they cause a big upset today, they will have nothing to gain in the showpiece event.
South Africa, on the other hand, have a lot to gain and they will aim to shed the `chokers` tag with a crushing victory over the underdogs.
The comparison between South African and Zimbabwean team would be the comparison between sky and earth. Protaes are laced with world’s best T20 campaigners in the visage of Richard Levi, Francois du Plessis, Albie Morkel and Morne Morkel.
Wayne Parnell, Dale Steyn, and Lonwabo Tsotsobe combines together to constitute the most formidable bowling attack of the world.
A Zimbabwean bounce back could not be completely ruled out. Their top-order batsmen are better against the seamers. South Africa have not a specialist spinner like Ajantha Mendis, to whom the Zimbabwean batsmen surrendered in the first match. Johan Botha is the only specialist spinner they have.
