Group-D Will the Underdog Team Surprise Big Fish Teams


Let us look at the details of T20 WC 2024 Group D Analysis:

South Africa:

The current Group topper South Africa after back-to-back three wins has confirmed their place in the Super 8 with an amazing performance in the group stage fixtures against Sri Lanka, Netherlands, and Bangladesh. They have nothing to worry about as they have fixed their place and now they just can try out a few player combinations before the Super 8 fixture.

They will be facing the host West Indies in the Super 8 fixture on 24th June.  


With one loss and one win from two games Bangladesh currently stands in second place. However, the Netherlands also has the same number of points but it’s just the net run rate that is separating them from each other. Bangladesh next face off the Netherlands and this is where they have to beat the Netherlands and get one step closer to Super 8. But still even to secure their place they will have to try and win against Nepal in the final group stage fixture match.


The emotions are high and the Netherlands who have the same number of points are in third place with 2 points from 2 games. While it is very hard to play against a team like Bangladesh, they will be optimistic to beat Bangladesh and get one step forward in the race for Super 8 place. It’s just simple Netherlands has to defeat both Bangladesh and Sri Lanka in their last two group stage matches.


Nepal had a dramatic group stage time in this T20 World Cup, where they lost their opening fixture to the Netherlands and their second game against Sri Lanka was ended in no result due to rain. With still two games to play against big teams like South Africa and Bangladesh the chances of Nepal are very slim. They will have to win both their games and hope other teams for some help to reach Super 8.

Sri Lanka:

The Lankan Lions have been one the biggest upsets in this tournament so far where they have only one point from three games. This poor run in this World Cup has certainly cost them large as they are on the brink of elimination. With one more game to play against the Netherlands, the chances are out of their hands. Even if they win the last game they will have three points and a win for either Bangladesh or Netherlands will kill their Super 8 chances.
