By Staff Writer

South Africa vs Afghanistan Semi-Final 1 promises a thrilling contest with each team striving for a historic World Cup victory.

Match Timings: 6:00 AM (June 27)

Venue: Brian Lara Stadium, Tarouba, Trinidad

Afghanistan, initially considered dark horses, have exceeded expectations in the T20 World Cup 2024. After a strong group stage performance, including a pivotal win over New Zealand, they progressed to the Super 8s. Their formidable bowling attack and solid opening partnerships have been key to their success. Afghanistan’s landmark victory over Australia and subsequent triumph against Bangladesh have propelled them into their first-ever World Cup semifinal.

South Africa, on the other hand, have been in impeccable form, remaining unbeaten throughout the tournament. Dominating the Super 8 stage with three consecutive wins, they are now focused on capturing their first T20 World Cup trophy.

Pitch Report

There have been four matches at the venue in the tournament so far. Three of those have been low-scoring affairs. WI 149/9 is the highest total in these games and it was successfully defended. It tells us that the Brian Lara Stadium pitch in Trinidad is favouring bowlers more.
