With just barely 5 matches completed in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and South Africa team now fears elimination. Although South Africa has still 7 matches to play but in order to qualify for Super Six, you need to atleast win 5 matches. The “Chockers” tag is back in jinx. The dreaded c-word has started chasing them right from the start of the world cup.
Analysis of their first two matches reveals that it’s South Africa’s mistake that they are sitting at the bottom of the points table with two losses in two matches. They lost to England by 104 runs in opening match of the world cup and on June 2, they lost to Bangladesh by 21 runs, one of the biggest upset so far in this series. It’s quite surprising to see such a good team with consecutive defeats.
Now that leaves South Africa with 7 matches to go and here are their upcoming matches fixture –
South Africa vs India 5th June
South Africa vs West Indies 10th June
South Africa vs Afghanistan 15th June
South Africa vs New Zealand 19th June
South Africa vs Pakistan 23rd June
South Africa vs Sri Lanka 28th June
South Africa vs Australia 6th July
Team Faf du Plessis can easily defeat Afghanistan and that’s just one win for them. Team should be concerned on how to get the other four wins as roadmap looks pretty tough for them as they have to face India, Australia, New Zealand, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and West Indies in their upcoming fixture.
