New Delhi. South Africa is facing Sri Lanka in the Group D match of T20 World Cup 2024 today. This is the first match of both the teams in the tournament. This match is being played at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. This match is being seen as the first big match of the tournament. South Africa's batting is very strong, while Sri Lanka's bowling is considered to be full of variety. Both the teams would like to start the T20 World Cup 2024 with a win.

Apart from South Africa and Sri Lanka, this group has teams like Netherlands, Bangladesh and Nepal. In the shortest format of the game, any team has the ability to upset anyone at any time. In such a situation, both the strong teams of the group would not want to take any laxity from the beginning. Apart from captain Aiden Markram, South Africa has batsmen like wicketkeeper-batsman Heinrich Klaasen, Quinton de Kock, David Miller and Tristan Stubbs. Klaasen and Stubbs are currently in the best form of their careers. Both have recently performed brilliantly during IPL 2024.

The Sri Lankan team has so far failed to make it to the knockouts in the T20 World Cup. The good news for Sri Lanka is that South Africa recently lost 0-3 in the T20 series against the West Indies. Sri Lanka will try to take advantage of this. If Sri Lanka has to advance from the league stage this time, then its batsmen will have to perform well. It has batsmen like experienced Angelo Mathews, explosive Kusal Mendis and Dhananjay de Silva, while former captain Dasun Shanaka can score some quick runs in the lower order.

South Africa Team: Aiden Markram (captain), Ottneil Bartman, Gerald Coetzee, Quinton de Kock, Bjorn Fortuin, Reeza Hendricks, Marco Jensen, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, David Miller, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Ryan Rickelton, Tabrez Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs.
