T20 World Cup 2024: Match 4, SL vs SA Match Prediction – Who will win today’s T20 WC match?

The meeting between Sri Lanka (SL) and South Africa (IN) will mark the start of the game for all groups in the T20 World Cup 2024. Match 4 is scheduled to take place at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York on June 3.

Building on the momentum of back-to-back 2-1 wins over Afghanistan and Bangladesh in the respective three-match T20I series, Sri Lanka would be brimming with confidence. However, they experienced mixed fortunes in their warm-up matches against the Netherlands and Ireland. However, they intend to start their campaign on a positive note.

Conversely, South Africa, having recently suffered a whitewash at the hands of co-hosts West Indies, in a three-match T20I series, would have seen their confidence somewhat shaken. However, several key players were rested during this series. With the return of their star players, South Africa will be eager to make a strong comeback. They will draw confidence from their favorable head-to-head record in T20Is as well as their record against the Lankans in this tournament.

After a successful IPL 2024 season with Sunrisers Hyderabad, in which the keeper-batsman amassed 479 runs in 15 innings at a blistering strike rate of 171.07, Klaasen established himself as a formidable player against spin. Renowned for his ability to dominate spin bowling and his repertoire of innovative and intelligent shots, he has the potential to take the lead among Lankan bowlers with his exceptional batting prowess.

Probable best bowler: Wanindu Hasaranga

Although he has hardly bowled in recent months, this tricky leg-spinner has the potential to confuse batters with his guile and guile, clearly evident in his bowling. The skipper will aim to make an impactful start and put in a strong performance with the ball.
