The last game for both teams in the Super 12 group stage will have a decisive meaning. England is still unbeaten in the tournament, but even four victories didn’t guarantee them a playoff spot. Yes, they still have the best chances to qualify to the semifinals, but everything can happen.
South Africa was quite unlucky to face Australia in the opening match, as the Kiwis beat them in the close matchup. Although Sri Lanka and West Indies were overcome in the tough contests, the Proteas looked better from game to game. Now they face a final boss of the group and come to this match in pretty good shape.

Still, the favourite of this clash is England, which was dominating in all the matches. It allowed them to upgrade their run rate and sit at the safe position, allowing them to lose to South Africa but still claim first place in the sextet. However, it’s hard to believe that the Proteas are able to beat such a team, so the coefficient of 1.5 for England’s victory looks promising.
