South Africa played top cricket against Zimbabwe, but unfortunately ended on to share points. With a net run rate to begin with, South Africa and Zimbabwe; both stand at +0.00.
Proteas were so much keen to win 2 points with a very high NRR. That wasn’t possible as Zimbabwe still fancy for the chase, since Pakistan although favorite to win, will be tested again, and 3 T20I matches in a row on the very busy Oct 27.

India looking for a BIG win against Netherlands. Pakistan also in a hurry to put some points on the table of the SIX teams in the group 2. A win or lose for both South Africa and Bangladesh on Oct 27, would be right on the corner. However, Quinton de Kock is in good form, and with a GOOD pace attack, South Africa looks GOOD in all three departments. Their bowling, batting and fielding can pull off more victories from nowhere.
India after defeating Pakistan, have earned 2 points, an NRR of just +0.05, which doesn’t matter as India pulled of a win from the jaws of defeat. Kudos to Virat Kohli. The T20I #IndvPak was the most thrilling contest so far, in this T20 World Cup.

The two wins or the two losses or one win and one loss for South Africa can put them on a high, low or in the middle. South Africa in between or in the middle of India and Pakistan for the race to the semi finals. The chase fueled to go where. Come Oct 27, an interesting Thursday.
