Our Prediction:

South Africa will win

South Africa – Italy Match Prediction | 05-10-2019 05:45

Despite facing defeat in that game, the Windies are likely to field the same eleven. West Indies are having to carefully manage Gayle and Andre Russells fitness, but there were no other changes for the match against Australia. Evin Lewis replaced Darren Bravo last time out, opening the batting with Chris Gayle as Shai Hope dropped to number three.

A place in the Africa Cup of Nations semis will be at stake when Nigeria and South Africa face each other at Cairo International Stadium on Wednesday evening. The Super Eagles came from behind to beat Cameroon in the last 16, with Odion Ighalo adding two goals to his account. The Nigerians must be high on confidence ahead of the quarter-finals clash against South Africa, but seeing that the Bafana Bafana eliminated home country Egypt in the last 16, we are not tempted to put our money on Alex Iwobi and Co.

With Steyn ruled out of the tournament and Lungi Ngidi also unlikley to feature in this game, Hendricks could be a part of the pace attack, replacing second spinner Tabraiz Shamsi. Beuran Hendricks, flown in as replacement for the injured Dale Steyn, could slot straight into the South Africa line-up for the match against West Indies. Markram, however, will probably be drafted into the line-up if Rassie van der Dussen is not available. Hashim Amla returned last time out, in place of Aiden Markram if Markram and Shamsi both miss out this time, JP Duminys bowling responsibility will increase. Rassie picked up a groin strain during South Africas last match against India and remains doubtful for this West Indies clash.

All three lead the South African batting, with De Kock and Du Plessis ranked among the best ODI batsmen in the world and Van der Dussen having made a brilliant start to his ODI career, but South Africa need a big score to pick their batting form up and they will be hoping for Van der Dussen to regain full fitness ahead of this crucial game.

South Africa came into this tournament in great form and if they can replicate that form in this important clash, they should come away with a comfortable win. The Springboks won at a canter against Namibia with a much-changed side but they have reverted to a stronger line-up here which spells trouble for the Italians. Italy have performed well in their two matches at this year's RWC but now face a much more difficult task as they face South Africa.

It should be a cracker. This is their chance to advance to the second round so its all on the line. Good punting! We predict this trend to continue but we also expect the Azzurri to throw everything they have at them. Italy have always struggled to score heavily against South Africa, whose forwards generally give them an edge no matter who they play.

The Nigerians must be high on confidence ahead of the quarter-finals clash against South Africa, but seeing that the Bafana Bafana eliminated home country Egypt in the last 16, we are not tempted to put our money on Alex Iwobi and Co.

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

After racing into a 2-0 lead in their home series with Australia, India lost three in a row and then suffered a bad defeat in their first World Cup warm-up game bowled out for 179 on their way to a six-wicket defeat to New Zealand.They bounced back in their second warm-up, however, as both MS Dhoni and KL Rahul hit centuries in a total of 359/7 against Bangladesh, before both Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal took three wickets each in a 95-run win.

The former, however, is more likely to be picked. Jadejas superior batting should give him the edge, meaning Yadav and Chahal competing for the final spot. The biggest selection question appears to be which of their three spinners Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravindra Jadeja play. Mohammed Shami has shown impressive form with the ball of late and he could be picked ahead of Bhuvneshwar Kumar as India's second frontline seamer. They did, however, play two warm-up matches and KL Rahuls century in the second one should see him bat at four against South Africa. With a mandatory window between the IPL Final and their first ODI at the Cricket World Cup, India have had to wait longest to get their campaign underway. There seems to be another selection dilemma for the men in blue - should they pick a fit-again Kedar Jadhav or go for Vijay Shankar who failed to impress in both the warm-up matches.

Spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal shared 33 wickets between them, meanwhile, with South Africas only win coming in the rain-shortened fourth game. Virat Kohli was in superb form in that series, scoring three centuries on his way to a record 558 runs in total. Hey then posted 303/6 and bowled South Africa out for 179 in the third game the 124-run win becoming their biggest ever ODI win in terms of runs against the hosts in South Africa. Indias dominant form saw them claim their biggest ever ODI win in terms of wickets against South Africa when they won the second game by nine wickets chasing 119.
