RSA vs ZIM Betting Tips

  • Quinton de Kock has scored 13 IT20 half-centuries and the opener is our pick for South Africa’s highest run scorer in this match. Kagiso Rabada is an excellent bowler in any format and the right arm quick is well worth backing as South Africa’s top wicket taker against Zimbabwe.
  • Craig Ervine hit 58 runs from 54 balls against Scotland and the skipper is our tip for Zimbabwe's highest run scorer against South Africa. Tendai Chatara took 2-14 and bowled a maiden in the win over Scotland and he is a strong choice for Zimbabwe’s top wicket taker in this game.
  • Irrespective of how the game finishes, Sikandar Raza is always one of the best performers. We are backing him to take the Player of the Match Award.

SA vs ZIM Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2022

South Africa take on Zimbabwe in Group 2 of the Super 12 stage at the Bellerive Oval, Hobart on Monday evening. This will be South Africa’s first match of the 2022 T20 World Cup. Zimbabwe qualified for the Super 12 stage after finishing top of Pool B. Read on as we preview this match. This fixture between near-neighbours gets underway at 19:00 local time.

South Africa have gone under the radar over the last 12 months but have been quietly putting together a strong white ball side. They will be very confident ahead of this match.

Although Zimbabwe will be underdogs, they have played themselves into a good run of form over recent months. They will hope that their match practice at this venue from the first round will give them an added advantage.

SA vs ZIM Match Toss Prediction

We have seen more teams bat first than bowl first after winning the toss in Hobart. We predict that both skippers will choose to bat first in this game.

SA vs ZIM Pitch Report

There is some good pace and bounce on this wicket but it is not all easy for the batters. There is also turn and movement off the pitch for the quick bowlers. A par score will be around 160.

Weather Report

There is a high chance of rain throughout this match. There will be plenty of cloud and the temperature will be no higher than 13 degrees.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

Dwaine Pretorius is the only South African first choice player who is unavailable for this game and he will miss the complete T20 World Cup 2022 tournament after picking up a thumb injury during the recent tour of India. We expect Rilee Rossouw to get selected ahead of Tristan Stubbs in the line-up.

SA Key Players

  • Quinton de Kock- the keeper-batter went through a poor run of form earlier this summer but is now back playing his typical brand of attacking and clean hitting cricket.
  • David Miller- the middle-order batter has stepped in as captain when required over recent months. He hit 106 not out in an IT20 against India earlier this month.
  • Kagiso Rabada- the right-arm pace bowler has a strong record in T20 cricket. He has a strike rate of 19.6 in IT20s.

SA Team Form

South Africa lost two matches against India but have still won three of their last five.

There was one change for Zimbabwe for their final game of the pool stage against Scotland. Skipper Craig Ervine, who had been forced to miss an earlier clash in the first round due to an asthma attack was back to full health to lead the side.

  • Sikandar Raza- the all-rounder has had an excellent year in all formats with both bat and ball. So far in this tournament he has taken five wickets and has hit over 130 runs.
