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.

  1. No need to analyze this match. The only thing left in this match is how do you make profit.
    South Africa odds are 1.025 (2p) which is too less. There is not way to make profit with this odds. So what do you do?

    There are two scenarios
    First is when Zim bats first and puts up some good partnerships. SA odds will increase to around 1.2 to 1.5 max. Back SA at these high odds.

    Second scenario is if SA bats first and Zim restrict them to 250 or less and then their start is good which will push SA odds and then you can back SA.

    Apply ball whacker strategy for ABD.

    • MUNNA bhai, today warm-up match nz (157-7) vs zim ----> what that mean ? Zimbabwe improved their bowling ?? . MUNNA bhai zim possible to chase around 230 vs top 8 team??

  2. MUNNA bhai ! What's "ball whacker strategy" ?? -----> ( Back S.a when ABD enter and lay after sky-fly shot ?? )

    • MUNNA bhai I already read "What’s “ball whacker strategy" in your comment NZ vs Sri match. Thx a lot !! Hope for more strategy in this World Cup to get more profit !! Thx thx thx

  3. LOL! Minnows Zimbabwe scared shit outta mighty SA. Steyn got whacked. SA looks vulnerable and its always boils down to some rescuer in their squad.
