The T20 World Cup 2024 will begin with a match between South Africa (SA) and Sri Lanka (SL). All groups will play. The fourth match is set to happen on June 3 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York.

Sri Lanka would be overjoyed, riding high on the momentum of back-to-back 2-1 series wins over Afghanistan and Bangladesh in their respective three-match Twenty20 international series. But in their warm-up matches against Ireland and the Netherlands, they had mixed results. All the same, they will want to start their campaign off right.

On the other side, South Africa’s confidence would have been somewhat dented after they were recently humiliated by co-hosts, the West Indies, in a three-match T20I series. However, during that series, some important players received rest.

South Africa will be motivated to mount a formidable comeback now that their best players are back. Their strong head-to-head record in Twenty20 Internationals and their performance versus the Lankans in this tournament will give them confidence.

South Africa has dominated Sri Lanka in their 17 Twenty20 International meetings, winning 12 of them to Sri Lanka’s 5 losses. This supremacy carries over to T20 World Cup matches, as South Africa has defeated Sri Lanka in three of the last four encounters.

South Africa has consistently demonstrated its strength and strategic advantage in the shorter format of these head-to-head matches. South Africa’s past performance against the Sri Lankan side would surely give them more confidence as they get ready for another match.

Who will win the match?

South Africa can score a high total since they have the batting power. But their aggressive batting style might not be supported by the conditions in New York. Given their prowess in their bowling unit, Sri Lanka may benefit from this.

Anticipate Sri Lanka to use their bowlers to limit South Africa’s batting lineup while taking advantage of the difficult conditions. A competitive match is expected, but Sri Lanka’s tactical approach and potent bowling attack could help them win.
