The T20 World Cup continues on Sunday afternoon, as there are three games to look forward to in Australia. All six teams in Group 2 in the Super 12 will be in action, with India looking to maintain their advantage at the top of the standings.
Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe
Two sides that are still in the hunt for a place in the next round of the competition meet on Sunday, as Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will be looking to take second spot in the group behind India. Zimbabwe should come into this match in good confidence after recording a thrilling victory in their previous fixture against Pakistan. That match went to the very final ball, with Zimbabwe eventually holding on to win by one run, despite setting a very low score of 130.
Bangladesh will be looking for a second win in the Super 12 stage, after they beat the Netherlands on opening night. However, they were hammered by South Africa in their previous fixture, as they lost by a stunning 104 runs after being bowled out for just 101. That was an extremely poor performance, and we could see Zimbabwe maintaining their strong run this weekend.
India vs South Africa
The two teams expected to finish in the top two places in Group 2 of the Super 12 stage will be in direct competition on Sunday. South Africa will be looking for a second win in three games, as they were very fine winners in their previous fixture against Bangladesh. They batted and bowled excellently in that fixture to win by 104 runs, as they set a high score of 205. However, their bowlers were in excellent form, as they bowled out their rivals in just 16.3 overs.
India look to be the favourites to win the T20 World Cup this year, and they showed all their quality to win a dramatic showdown against Pakistan last week. India eventually won by just four runs, as Virat Kohli top-scored with 82 runs. Hardik Pandya and Arshdeep Singh both took three wickets each in that win. We could see them taking a massive stride towards the next round on Sunday.
Netherlands vs Pakistan
The bottom two in Group 2 will be looking to get back in the hunt for a place in the next round of the competition on Sunday. The Netherlands and Pakistan are the only two nations in the group yet to pick up a single victory in the competition so far. However, the chances of a Netherlands victory look slim. They were comprehensively beaten in their second game of this stage, as they lost by 56 runs against India.
Pakistan will be aware of the pressure on their shoulders, as they need to win this fixture to stand any chance of progression. They were beaten for the second game running in dramatic fashion by Zimbabwe on Friday. That defeat was of their own making, as they needed a low score of 131 to win, but they eventually fell short by one run. We expect them to claim a dominant success in this fixture to right that wrong.
