T20 World Cup 24 NEP vs SA Match 31 Prediction: Nepal vs South Africa, Check Fantasy Team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates, Live Streaming & Pitch Report

Rohit Paudel’s Nepal team will strive to keep their Super 8 hopes alive as they face South Africa, who have already secured their spot in the Super 8 stage, in a Group D match in Kingstown on Saturday. The match will be played at 5.00 a.m. IST. 

Earlier in the week, heavy rain caused the match between Sri Lanka and Nepal to be abandoned in Florida. This outcome ensured that South Africa, who have won all three of their games, became the first team from Group D to qualify for the Super 8. South Africa’s bowlers were pivotal in their recent success, defending a low total of 113 runs against Bangladesh in New York.

For Nepal to advance to the next round, they must secure victories against both South Africa and Bangladesh. Nepal lost their opening match to the Netherlands and received a point from the abandoned game against Sri Lanka. However, there is good news for Nepal: star bowler Sandeep Lamichhane, who was the fourth highest wicket-taker in ODIs last year, has arrived in the USA after initially being denied a visa. Lamichhane, Nepal’s leading wicket-taker in T20Is and just two wickets away from reaching 100 in the format, could be a crucial addition to their lineup in the upcoming match.

Ahead of match 31 of the T20 World Cup 2023, here is all you need to know.
