The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York will host Match 21 of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, featuring South Africa (SA) and Bangladesh (BAN), on Monday, June 10.

South Africa have notched up two wins in as many games but neither of them has been convincing. They started with a hard-fought six-wicket win against Sri Lanka in a low-scoring encounter. Chasing a target of 78 on a sticky wicket in New York, the Proteas took 16.2 overs. Aiden Markram and Co. followed it up with a four-wicket win against the Netherlands at the same venue. The Rainbow Nation reached the 104-run target with seven balls to spare.

On the other hand, Bangladesh started their campaign with a thrilling two-wicket win against arch-rivals Sri Lanka in Dallas. The Bangla Tigers had some disappointing results heading into the tournament but they will take a lot of confidence from their winning start.

Pitch Report:

The drop-in pitch at the Nassau Cricket Stadium has received a lot of flak for its variable bounce and sluggish nature. Batting has been quite difficult and bowlers have found a lot of assistance. Batters will have to prepared to spend some time in the middle and grind hard for their runs. Chasing has yielded better results at this venue in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Probable Top Performers from SA vs BAN

Probable best batter: Tristan Stubbs

The young wicketkeeper-batter Tristan Stubbs came into the tournament on the back of a stellar IPL season, where he scored 378 runs in 14 matches at an average of 54 and a strike rate of 190.91. Here, the pitches have not been as good for batting as in the IPL but Stubbs has shown the eagerness to spend time in the middle and face the adverse conditions head-on. This could hold him in good stead on the difficult New York pitch.

Probable best bowler: Mustafizur Rahman

The cunning left-arm seamer Mustafizur Rahman also had an impressive IPL season, bagging 14 wickets in nine matches. He bowled really well against Sri Lanka in the opening game and finished with figures of 3/17 in his four overs. The Fizz will enjoy bowling on the New York track, where his cutters could be way more lethal than they already are.
