South Africa – The Proteas were a supreme team of Group B and registered 10 points from six games, winning five, losing just one and achieved a net run rate of +2.026. New Zealand over powered them in the Quarter-final by a margin of 49 runs on March 25, 2011, at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur, Dhaka.
Zimbabwe – They were a part of Group A, grasped the fifth position in the pool matches after clinching two matches out of six with a net run rate of +0.030, hence could not reach the Quarter-final stage.
The Proteas are in good nick since they crushed the visiting West Indians in the five One Day International series at 4-1. Their batsmen and bowlers have performed excellently and will be eager to exhibit perfectly during the tournament. Team Zimbabwe was bulldozed by the hosts Bangladesh 5-0 on their recent visit and they had to re-assess their weaknesses for a better show. The two neighbouring teams are placed in Pool B and will embark on the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 with different ideas. South Africa will anticipate to lift the cup whereas Zimbabwe will try to leave a nice impression in the event.

Rilee Rossouw, AB de Villiers and David Miller scored over two hundred runs each whereas Faf du Plessis, Quinton de Kock, Jean-Paul Duminy and Frahaan Behardien are compatible batsmen. Their strong bowling line-up will revolve around Imran Tahir, Vernon Philander, Dale Steyn, Wayne Parnell, Aaron Phangiso and Morne Morkel.
Zimbabwe will bank on Brendon Taylor, Elton Chigumbura, Solomon Mire, Hamilton Masakadza, Craig Ervine, Regis Chakabva and Sikandar Raza for assembling mighty scores on board.
