T20 World Cup 2024 WI vs SA Match 50 Prediction: West Indies vs South Africa Check Fantasy Team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report

Co-hosts West Indies will play their final Super 8 match against South Africa on June 24 at 6.00 am IST. This is a must win match for the two-time champions if they want to qualify for the semi-finals. 

The West Indies were unbeaten in the tournament until they lost a Super 8 game to England. For the West Indies, a win secures their spot in the semifinals. A loss, however, means their advancement will depend on net run-rate, and only if the USA defeats England in the other group match. Nicholas Pooran is the leading run-scorer in the 2024 T20 World Cup, amassing 227 runs in six matches. The wicketkeeper-batter is in excellent form and will be crucial in the upcoming match against South Africa.

South Africa, winning all six of their games, are at the top of the table but still need one more win to be guaranteed a spot in the semifinals. Anrich Nortje has been performing well in the 2024 T20 World Cup, taking 11 wickets in six matches so far.

In the 22 T20Is played between West Indies and the USA, the head-to-head record is even with both teams winning 11 matches each. In T20 World Cups, they have met four times, with South Africa emerging victorious in three of those encounters.

Ahead of match 50 of the T20 World Cup 2024, here is all you need to know.
