SA vs NED Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2022
Match 39 of the 2022 T20 World Cup sees South Africa take on Netherlands on Sunday in Adelaide. South Africa have five points from four games and come into this match in second place in the group. Netherlands beat Zimbabwe in their last clash but have already been eliminated from the tournament. Read on as we preview this Group 2 fixture. The Super 12 stage game begins at the Adelaide Oval at 10:30 local time.
South Africa had looked unstoppable before their defeat to Pakistan and they will want to show the rest of the tournament that they are unaffected by that game. We expect them to approach this match full of confidence.
Netherlands put in a very impressive showing to beat Zimbabwe in their last match and could have won the game a lot earlier than when they did after 18 overs. However, South Africa will be a very tough opponent in Adelaide.

SA vs NED Match Toss Prediction
Although Netherlands won batting second against Zimbabwe, it is the only time in the last seven matches that the team batting first has not won an IT20 at the Adelaide Oval.
SA vs NED Pitch Report
It is an interesting surface in Adelaide with batters able to hit the ball cleanly at times but also at risk against slower balls gripping in the wicket. A par score will be around 170-175.
After a tournament of cold evenings and wet conditions, this match will see sunshine and highs of 24 degrees.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11
SA Team News
There were two changes for South Africa ahead of their rain affected defeat to Pakistan at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Thursday. As expected, Tabraiz Shamsi came back into the side alongside Heinrich Klassen who replaced the injured David Miller who had back spasms. Miller is predicted to return in this game.
SA Key Players
- Rilee Rossouw- the number three batter managed to hit a six in his short innings against Pakistan. He is always attacking and has hit two IT20 centuries from 23 innings.
- Aiden Markram- the stylish right-hander is a great timer of the ball and an expert at finding gaps in the field. He will know the dimensions of the boundaries in Adelaide and will take advantage of the shorter ones.
- Anrich Nortje- the 28 year old pace bowler has combined figures of 10-84 from his four games in the tournament. There will also be swing on offer at this ground for him to exploit.
SA Team Form
South Africa’s defeat to Pakistan was their first loss after four unbeaten games in this format.

Who will win South Africa vs Netherlands T20 Match?
Netherlands have talented batters and bowlers and have progressed as a side over the last 12 months. However, they are still many levels behind South Africa and we are expecting a one-sided match.
SA vs NED Top Team Batsmen
Our recommendations are Quinton de Kock, Rilee Rossouw and Aiden Markram with the bat for South Africa. de Kock and Rossouw are both white ball specialists and they share the top odds with the bookies. Markram is able to adjust to all situations and has a top score of 70 in this format.
Max O’Dowd, Tom Cooper and Stephan Myburgh are our batting picks for Netherlands. O’Dowd has performed very well on the big stage of this competition and his odds reflect his form. Cooper hit 32 runs from 29 balls at the Adelaide Oval on Wednesday.
SA vs NED Top Team Bowlers
Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi are our bowling tips for South Africa. Nortje has a strike-rate of 8.1 in the 2022 T20 World Cup and the bookmakers have him as the favourite to be South Africa’s top wicket taker. Ngidi has an equally impressive strike-rate of 8.5 in the tournament and will relish bowling at the Netherlands batters.
We are backing Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeran and Bas de Leede with the ball for Netherlands. van Meekeran began the competition as an underdog to take the most wickets for his side but his performances have seen him become the joint favourite for his side. de Leede has dismissed 11 batters across this campaign.
South Africa vs Netherlands Prediction
Netherlands had every right to be delighted with their win over Zimbabwe in their last game, but in truth, they have come up short whenever they have played the strongest teams in this competition. South Africa’s bowling attack has been the best of all teams in the tournament and we expect more of the same in this match. We are backing South Africa to win this game.
South Africa are favorites to beat Netherlands at the odds of 1.05
