The home team needs to win their final group game to advance to the competition’s semi-finals.
South Africa will face Bangladesh in a virtual quarter-final match in the 20th game of the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup in Cape Town. The home team must win their final group game to advance to the competition’s semi-finals.
They are currently second from the bottom of Group 1 with one win in three games. However, due to their superior net run rate, they will overtake Sri Lanka and New Zealand to finish second if they win their next match against Bangladesh.
Bangladesh, on the other hand, has nothing to lose and will be playing for pride after losing all three matches in the tournament thus far. New Zealand, who thrashed Sri Lanka in their previous match, will be hoping for a win for Bangladesh, which would guarantee the White Ferns’ passage to the semi-finals.
