Big picture

Hambantota will play host to an African derby as tournament favourites South Africa begin another campaign for major silverware, this time against neighbours Zimbabwe. AB de Villiers' men probably could not have asked for a gentler easing in and will view this match as the beginning of a journey that they hope will end on October 7 in Colombo, with a trophy.

Despite some in the South Africa team being on the road since June, they showed no signs of homesickness and most were delighted to be in the island nation. De Villiers posted photographs of the air-force helicopter the team travelled in and Dale Steyn and Lonwabo Tsotsobe put up pictures of the beach in Hambantota.

They have found ways of keeping themselves fresh, a small sign that mindset has changed under Gary Kirsten. South Africa have made promises that they are ready to perform under pressure and that, more than ability with bat and ball will be under scrutiny.

Knowing that mind games have been used successfully against South Africa in the past, Zimbabwe will look to make the most out of their victory in the unofficial tri-series in June where they beat a South African side in the final.

Expect words on the field from Zimbabwe, who will be more motivated by who their opposition is than the context in which this match is played. Their flights to Harare are probably booked and boarding passes waiting to be stamped but Zimbabwe will want to make a point before boarding.

Brendan Taylor was visibly and verbally disappointed with Zimbabwe's performance against Sri Lanka. "We are a better side than that," he said. His team will want to prove the captain right.

Form guide (last 5 completed matches, most recent first)

South Africa LWWWW
Zimbabwe LLLLL

Watch out for

He has been dubbed the man that will change South Africa's fortunes at a major tournament and if AB de Villiers is able to do that, he will be hailed as more than a hero. With the responsibility of holding the batting line-up together, wicketkeeping and leading the side, De Villiers will have more to think about at first, but the silverware will be on his mind.

Sri Lanka's batsmen found it difficult to pick Zimbabwe legspinner Graeme Cremer and he finished as their most successful bowler. With a well-disguised googly and a good arm-ball, Cremer also has the right attitude of aggression for his role. He is well used in the middle overs and could be a challenge for the likes of JP Duminy.

Team news

South Africa's squad has been hit with a tummy bug. AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla and Jacques Kallis did not train but they have all been declared fit to play. They are also waiting on Albie Morkel to make a decision about their final XI. Morkel sustained lower back spasms in the warm-up match against New Zealand and was taken for MRI scan which was inconclusive in its results. He will have a fitness test on Thursday morning. If he cannot play, it could open up a spot for either Faf du Plessis, who will likely miss out on a batting role in the top order or Wayne Parnell, if South Africa opt for an extra seamer.

South Africa's batting line-up will be flexible with their top order still undecided except the opening combination of two Wynberg Boys alumini - Jacques Kallis and Richard Levi. Both Johan Botha and Robin Peterson are expected to play and they could resort back to their default bowling pair of Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel, meaning no space for Lonwabo Tsotsobe.

South Africa (probable): 1 Richard Levi, 2 Jacques Kallis, 3 Hashim Amla, 4 AB de Villiers, 5 JP Duminy, 6 Justin Ontong, 7 Faf du Plessis/Wayne Parnell/Albie Morkel, 8 Johan Botha, 9 Robin Peterson, 10 Morne Morkel, 11 Dale Steyn

Zimbabwe's seamers came undone against Sri Lanka, which may tempt them into using an additional spinner. They had both Cremer and Prosper Utseya in action on Tuesday and could add Ray Price to the XI, in place of Chris Mpofu. With even less to lose than they had at the start of the competition, death bowling specialist Richard Muzhange could make his debut. Malcolm Waller may have to pay for a match in which he dropped two catches and made a duck and Stuart Matsikenyeri could be brought in to bolster the batting.

Zimbabwe (probable): 1 Hamilton Masakadza, 2 Vusi Sibanda, 3 Brendan Taylor, 4 Craig Ervine, 5 Stuart Matsikenyeri, 6 Elton Chigumbura, 7 Prosper Utseya, 8 Graeme Cremer, 9 Richard Muzhange, 10 Kyle Jarvis, 11 Ray Price/Brian Vitori

Pitch and conditions

Although talked up as a seamer-friendly surface, the Hambantota pitch offered almost nothing. It was slow and lifeless, did not have pace or turn and the bowlers had to rely on movement through the air, or in Ajantha Mendis' case, variations to cause problems. Batsmen found the going tough at first but run-scoring became easier as they spent more time at the crease. The skies may be watched more than the ground though. Rain is predicted for Thursday evening.

Stats and trivia

  • South Africa and Pakistan are joint-second on the list of teams who have won the most consecutive T20s. Both have a string of seven victories, the same number as the maximum amount of matches the finalists will play in this edition of the competition. England and Ireland have had runs of eight wins.
  • Zimbabwe have lost their last 13 T20 matches

    Quotes

    "Zimbabwe are a proud country and a proud team. They will want to improve on their performance yesterday. Whatever they bring to the party, obviously, we just need to be better than them."
    Hashim Amla was in the South African XI that lost in an unofficial series final to Zimbabwe

    "We're more familiar with the South African set up and we know what they're all about. They are a quality team. We do rely heavily on our top four so we need them to fire and also for some of the others to kick on so that we can chase down totals and post big ones."
    Brendan Taylor hopes Zimbabwe will be stronger against South Africa, if only because they know them.

@Pappu bhai: You should better stop exaggerating of Indian bowlers after they almost lost to Afghanistan yesterday their only good luck was Afghanistan's bad fielding or else no one could have saved India from upset!

Posted by crashed on (September 20, 2012, 15:02 GMT)

Balaji I looked for him and found out he is an Indian Fast/Medium Bowler - for all those that is clueless. As for comparing him with Steyn ... ;) lol

Posted by ksm1996 on (September 20, 2012, 14:52 GMT)

@SachTLG, ALL_IS_WELL, Abdurrasaaq, SL_rocks ; Well said brothers. @Pappu_bhai; I think you have to change your comment like this. "beware of balaji. he is 3rd class.. he is as bad as munaf patel..(or praveen kumar) LOL

Posted by Pappu_bhai on (September 20, 2012, 14:47 GMT)

Heey ColomboSL:Meanwhile Do you have any better bowler compared to Balaji or Steyn?For me steyn is good as Balaji.But however better than SL bowlers.However we Indians have better bowlers than steyn and steyn wont have in Indian playing 11 if he was in India.Because in India we always look for intelligent bowlers too.We also have fastest bowlers like Umesh Yadav,Varun Aaron,Atul Sharma etc.But we only play with intelligence.Thats why we are world champions and not SAF or SL.

Posted by coolmask on (September 20, 2012, 14:21 GMT)

Mr.Amla - NOBODY has been able to master T20 cricket yet ,CORRECTION - NO country has been able to master T20 cricket yet, NOT yet even INDIA (THOUGH they PLAY more T20 Cricket in the form of IPL than any other country). I am aware that some, if not all players from other countries also play in the IPL. However there is NO way of any predictions available for the cricket pundits before the beginning of a match to pinpoint a clear winner.No favorites prior to the match as anybody could be a winner. When I say anybody it means the competition is only among the top 8 (AUS,ENG,IND,PAK,NZ,SA,SL,WI).Any of the above mentioned team can win a game any given day as the format is too short as the actions/ reactions are limited. I am very impatient at the same time keen to see what a master batsman like you can bring to the table as this is the first time you are taking part in a T20 WC. Whatever be the result you are a class apart and T20 is not the platform to judge a player of your caliber.

Posted by Baber_Baloch on (September 20, 2012, 14:21 GMT)

if zimb did same fielding like against SL they gona face same result....if they hold catches ...then can hold match for some time away to SA victory.

Posted by kohli_life on (September 20, 2012, 14:17 GMT)

@Pappu_bhai: Dont mind some of the people in here. I agree with what you mean: Bala is good bowler, in the steyn calibre becoz he is swing the ball away from right hander. We ALL saw what Bala can do in IPL!!! He bowled very well and won tournment!! Steyn got smashed by AB de villiers and other batsmans. There we understand who better bowler. But have to say Steyn is better in tests coz Bala dont get chance.

Posted by Biggus on (September 20, 2012, 14:12 GMT)

Pappu_bhai is one funny guy! Laugh? I almost wet myself! Where can I buy a DVD of the entire series of him?

Posted by R_U_4_REAL_NICK on (September 20, 2012, 14:09 GMT)

I can't believe so many comments have spawned from another poster, instead of this article itself! Anyway, all I want to say is: (1) 20 overs isn't a very long time, so anything can happen in this format! (2) Be complacent at your own peril against these 'so-called' minnows. The previous games thus far have not all been "cakewalks" despite the apparent gulf between teams on paper, have they?

Posted by   on (September 20, 2012, 13:48 GMT)

Dudes, Balaji played a big hand in KKRs win in this years IPL? what did Steyn do? oh yeah, AB just took him apart, and on some days Sanga and Lehmann thought Rusty Theron was a better bowler. Steyn and Zaheer are good for Test cricket

Posted by   on (September 20, 2012, 13:42 GMT)

Pappu_Bhai may be dosnt know about cricket. That's why he comparing Steyn with Balaji. Balaji out of the Indian team for the past three years & he just started to play T-20 (2 matches). Its very funny.

Posted by musa441 on (September 20, 2012, 13:37 GMT)

if Mohammad amir wud have been playing today i think he wud have surpassed steyn as he had both inswing and outswing and was as quick as steyn is and what more he was a lefty which cud have made him the one of the greats of all time!! steyn is good but i dont think he wud have surpased amir as steyn doesnt have an inswing delivery with a new ball he can only bowl outswingers at good pace!! amir well he can do both of the swings at good pace!! so atm steyn is clearly the best fast bowler but if amir had been playing then steyn wud have been second best!!

Posted by musa441 on (September 20, 2012, 13:33 GMT)

@pappu bahi u are absolutely spot on !! balaji is way better than steyn. if all the humans are blind!!

Posted by   on (September 20, 2012, 13:10 GMT)

@ Pappu Bhai... :( Buddy always think before you speak anything lol... Styen have pace but what Balaji have??? Slow medium bowler he might be good bowler but not for comparison with Styne

Posted by baabay on (September 20, 2012, 13:05 GMT)

steyn and balaji no comparasion Zim needs to execute same sort of plan like they did in harare earlier this year other wise the in for a very harsh reality.

Posted by mishal88 on (September 20, 2012, 12:57 GMT)

Whoz balaji?? Is he a bowler..?? And from?and what's his current ICC ranking..1 or 2?? Ohh yeah i remember Styne is at #1, then on 2..oh no Ajmal is 2nd...then whoz this mysterious guy...i haven't seen his name even in top 100 bowlers...plz can any1 tell me his current ranking,..and which country he represents??

Posted by coolmask on (September 20, 2012, 12:55 GMT)

Hello to all!Right from the time Gary Kirsten joined SA he is able to harness the full potential of almost all the players to perform to their maximum.This has become an ongoing process right from the time they took off to Switzerland to spend time and group themselves into a side of reckoning. In England they have proved it,Yes Sir, they did it, when they took the poms & beat them all ends up. Remember the poms were unbeatable at that time. SA lead by AMLA in particular dominated the TEST SERIES leveled the ODI & T20. AMLA rose to the grand occasion and has played to his full potential and is seen discovering a class which is fast reclining among the new breed of cricketers besides Kohli (I will comment later). Amla's batting techniques will have to be studied minutely by the Batting coaches/ Cricket Institutions around the world to create better cricketers. Amla I Salute & Thank you for the wonderful entertainment you have provided in England & also for making cricket much richer.:-)

time for the first upset of the tournament as zim gonna thrash SA apart

Posted by calmfan on (September 20, 2012, 12:43 GMT)

i agree with pappu bhai if balaji had not suffered malaria in his childhood he wud have been steyns biggest rival but still he can teach steyn some tricks of trade

Posted by Pappu_bhai on (September 20, 2012, 12:33 GMT)

Heey ColomboSL.Can You Plz explain on what basis you are explaining Steyn is better than Balaji? However both are better than Malinga(8 Overs 100 Runs) and Mystery spinner Mendis(After India game he vanished and is back after an year when he needed more).

So with this bowlers leading ur bowling attack u wont understand the meaning of good bowlers.You should think beyond SLan club cricketers mate.This is world cup and SL is not the only team playing here.

Posted by Highflyer_GP on (September 20, 2012, 12:18 GMT)

@SamonandTrout: Barring Amla, Faf, Duminy and Tsotsobe, those are all fringe players. Parnell is a poor bowler, in fact most of the bowling was poor. That was an average side, nothing to get hyped up about.

Posted by Monif on (September 20, 2012, 12:09 GMT)

@Pupun Jena, Not sure why Bangladesh should not allowed in T20 WC. If they were in same group with India, Then I am sure that they were in super 8, and either India or England have compete with them.

Check them against NZ/Pak, they can beat both(Atleast NZ for sure). Also, in ranking they are above Aus. and they are better than too many teams atlest in subcontinent.

Posted by SurlyCynic on (September 20, 2012, 12:03 GMT)

SA have recently been playing England so have good experience against minnows. Minnows can be tricky when rain shortens the match and makes it a lottery. Hope the rain stays away today.

Posted by SL-RokZ on (September 20, 2012, 11:53 GMT)

Balaji !!!! who is he ? never heard of him.... BTW Steyn the best pace bowler in the world atm for sure....

@SachTLG; Well said bro. I 100% agreed, that Parippu_Bhai should be Balaji himself. Thats why he compare him with stey. Come on Pappu_Bhai wake up now please, this is not a time for day dream.

Posted by   on (September 20, 2012, 11:26 GMT)

SA are favourites.I don't know why ICC is allowing minnows to take part in these prestigious events.SA vs Zim what a joke..all minnows will lose all their matches thereby demeaning this big event.Even bangladesh should not be allowed.

Posted by TommytuckerSaffa on (September 20, 2012, 11:14 GMT)

Berhadien better start before Ontong. There are a few rubbish players in this SA squad that dont deserve to be there. Ontong, Parnell and McClaren. Zimbabwe were caught with thier pants down against the LAnkans and Zim will be far more competitve today, anyway the game is against their neighbours which makes it more competitive for bragging rights.

Posted by SamonandTrout on (September 20, 2012, 11:02 GMT)

@Pablo123 C side? That side had Amla, Levi, Pieterson, Ontong, Duminy, Tsotsobe, Behardin, Parnell, faf Duplesis....so basically four main line players missing...thats not a c side. Just fanciful rewriting of history on your part

Posted by Abdurrazaaq on (September 20, 2012, 10:52 GMT)

South Africa will beat Zimbabwe much like Australia steam rolled Ireland. @Pappu Bhai, are you smoking your socks? How can you even compare Steyn to balaji???? You dont compare Tata's to BMW's

Posted by All_IS_WELL on (September 20, 2012, 10:51 GMT)

How do u compare stayn with the balaj . I don't want to live on this planet anymore lol

Posted by 9ST9 on (September 20, 2012, 10:30 GMT)

Comparing Steyn with Balaji is the most hilarious comparison i ever heard of. How can someone even think of it ? :D Parippu_Bhai must be either a comedian or Balaji himself. :D

Posted by satish619chandar on (September 20, 2012, 10:04 GMT)

Well. People are not serious on the game but a small silly joke by Mr.Pappuji. Does that weird joke deserve this much attention?? BTW, i would like to see the spirit shown by Afghanistan against India by the Zimbabwe today. If we go by recent records, see off Steyn and dismiss Amla and the rest should be comparatively easy. In the games SA won in shorter formats, Amla and Steyn have been the biggest stalwarts of the SA team. I am not discounting the likes of Kallis, Albie, Robbie P, Morne etc., but Amla and Steyn at present are class above these guys.

Posted by jb633 on (September 20, 2012, 9:47 GMT)

SA need to bat first here and give their batsman a good opportunity to face some spin. If they bowl first they will probably skittle Zim for under 120 and it will serve no purpose.

Posted by   on (September 20, 2012, 9:26 GMT)

all these comments comparing Balaji with Steyn. Seriously no one would ever compare both these bowlers. David vs Goliath to be honest. Why on first place compare Balaji with Steyn. Balaji is a good bowler and if not for injuries suffered he would have been better. But Steyn he is incomparable. One is extremely fast and the other just a medium pacer. Come on guys, don't you all have other issues to talk about or just want to hog the limelight with such remarks, do not make me laugh again, I cannot tolerate such silly remarks

Posted by bestbuddy on (September 20, 2012, 9:06 GMT)

Someone please tell me what Ontong is doing in this team? has never performed despite all the opportunities he's been given. I best of 32 in all form of the game at international level (27 innings) is not nearly good enough. Start with Berhardien

Posted by   on (September 20, 2012, 8:56 GMT)

Who is Balaji? seems like a bollywood movie character.

@I-Mac you saw Afghan beats Sri Lanka A not Sri Lanka National Team

Posted by Pablo123 on (September 20, 2012, 8:30 GMT)

The Zimbo's beat a T20 side from SA a few months back that were basically an SA C side - jeeesh, not even a B side went to that mini tournament and they weren't even classed as official. Zimbo's in for a lesson today

Posted by   on (September 20, 2012, 8:13 GMT)

Pappu_bhai wants to be a celebrity! lol!!!!!!!

Brendon Taylor must be kidding me!!! He sure has a big mouth

Posted by I-Mac on (September 20, 2012, 7:32 GMT)

Whilst great fun to watch (in most cases) I think there is far too much hype about T20s. On any given day any one side can click and with a little run of luck ANY team can win - as we saw with the Afghans beating Sri Lanka. Expect the test teams to make it through to the supre 8's but thereafter its anybodys game/

Posted by joseyesu on (September 20, 2012, 7:26 GMT)

T20 is going to be over for Zimbabwe within 3 days.......

Posted by johnathonjosephs on (September 20, 2012, 6:26 GMT)

@Pappu Bhai... Steyn as good as Balaji? Did you serious just compare Steyn and Balaji to be on the same level? You might as well compare Bradman and Chris Martin for batting! South Africa will hit Zimbabwe hard, but Zimbabwe will give fight, unlike when Mendis ran through their order

Posted by Sallu_bhai on (September 20, 2012, 6:02 GMT)

You are spot on Pappu Bhai.I also Believe Steyn is as better as Balaji is.No comparison can be made.Both are good players.But not the best.

Posted by Pappu_bhai on (September 20, 2012, 6:00 GMT)

Dear Folks.I didnt tell Steyn is bad.But in my opinion steyn is good and Balaji also.Both are equally better.We cant compare them as they are equally good.May be Balaji would have been better if he was not injured.

Posted by sharj33l on (September 20, 2012, 6:00 GMT)

papu dear don't compare the earth with sky...

balaji vs styen:-)

styen is far far better:-)

Posted by   on (September 20, 2012, 5:59 GMT)

how on earth u can compare stayn with the balaji guy ? Stayn is one of the best and other guy is not

Posted by Faridoon on (September 20, 2012, 5:58 GMT)

I think spin might trouble SA a little, but Zim have to tidy up the extras to have any chance. I predict a low scoring game, 120 or less in 1st innings.

Posted by Pappu_bhai on (September 20, 2012, 5:45 GMT)

To be Honest I think Balaji is an intelligent bowler as compared to Steyn who can bowl slower ones also. Steyn has only one weapon which is bowl Fast.However I feel Steyn is also good as Balaji. May be steyn is more popular because he got more chances and bowling friendly wickets which Balaji didnt get.And injury also Caused problem to him.If everything was on his way he would have been far better than Steyn.

Posted by Porky_PigTheToon on (September 20, 2012, 5:25 GMT)

@ Pappu_bhai - Hahaha..your comment made me roll on floor..Gand mar li :D !

Posted by ajayrcs on (September 20, 2012, 4:49 GMT)

"Shafaet_001" yeah we can't compare Balaji with Steyn. Balaji is not a bad bowler at all that a batsman can score 200 in just 50 oversi.

Posted by Charos on (September 20, 2012, 4:48 GMT)

Pappu Bhai, what is this Tendulkar thing mate? Can't get it. And Balaji? Just asking.

Posted by Shafaet_001 on (September 20, 2012, 4:24 GMT)

How you can even think about comparing steyn with balaji?!!

Posted by kitten on (September 20, 2012, 4:07 GMT)

I have heard some comments that India would have had trouble reaching 100 if all the catches were taken by the Afghans. I beg to differ, for the simple reason, that India were not all out , and hence even if Raina and Kohli had departed, there was still Dhoni, Rohit(who incidentally is very good in t20s as seen in the IPL), and also Irfan Pathan who can hit the ball a mile when needed, so I would not jump to conclusions, and make a statement saying that India would have collapsed if the catches were taken. We have to remember India is a very strong team in the sub-continent, and are even winners of this trophy before. Let us all wait and see what transpires in the coming days. I hope to see a few good contests before the WC is over, and may the best team win.

Posted by pargat89 on (September 19, 2012, 21:23 GMT)

SA are the most favourite and deserving team to win this world cup. They are well balanced and have performed very well in all formats of the game in recent past. Go SA Go.... Best wishes from India...

Posted by BG4cricket on (September 19, 2012, 20:51 GMT)

I would not read too much into the "unofficial" (still not sure why apart from the matches being in Zimbabwe) as Sth Africa sent a very weakened side that did not contain Kallis, de Villiers, Steyn and Morne Morkel. I think the Aus vs Ire game demonstrates that in a real game that has a bit on the line the gulf in quality is vast and it will be in this game unless I am very much surprised. Would love to see Zimbabwe run it close but can't see this remotely happening.

Posted by   on (September 19, 2012, 20:18 GMT)

Steyn is a better bowler then Balaji. No doubts about that. I hope he can show his credentials in the T20I format.

Posted by   on (September 19, 2012, 19:35 GMT)

friendly matches against a young inexperienced side, NEXT, sri lankas whipping of the zimbobs will look tame in comparison

Posted by jackthelad on (September 19, 2012, 19:28 GMT)

These competitions certainly seem to bring out the one-eyed supporters in their droves. Balaji is virtually untried, he seems to have some talent but needs another few years in top cricket to prove anything; Steyn inhabits a different galaxy, there is not the slightest basis for comparison in any way. I equally don't see how Zimbabwe can be full of confidence after losing their last 13 T20 matches in a row. And India, if they hadn't been gifted nearly 70 runs by indisciplined Afghanistan fielding, would have struggled to put up much over 100 runs. In the country of the blind the one-eyed man may be king, but some of us (who are cricket lovers as opposed to partisans) at least try to be a trifle objective.

Posted by Cpt.Meanster on (September 19, 2012, 18:44 GMT)

This fixture could be interesting. Recently Zimbabwe played well against SA in an unofficial series. Zimbabwe always do well against their African neighbours. Hmm... SA need to be wary of them. No banana skins early on for the Proteas !!

Posted by elikana on (September 19, 2012, 18:34 GMT)

Its time to fight. Lest prove that we are all Zimbabweans. Lets justify why we fearless Zimbabweans to the world like what the Afgans did today. Vusa and Masakadza you fought very well. I know the captain fell to a stump which upto now is a record review which ended up being zoomed. We fell to one spinner who is far much better than Tamir. Lets beat the spinnerless Proteas.

Posted by Pappu_bhai on (September 19, 2012, 16:07 GMT)

As per Amla they are better than any other team till knock out stage.After that even Srilanka can beat them.Taylor thinks he does just the Tendulkar..yes he has the same class of Tendulkar.when Sachin was 10 years old..Any way beware of stayn..he is class..He is as good as balaji.

Posted by X.2. on (September 19, 2012, 15:40 GMT)

zimbabwe give it everything

Posted by wanatawu on (September 19, 2012, 15:28 GMT)

Its gonna be a humdigger. The Zimbos are full of confidence sinces beating SA in that friendly matches. So it will be good to watch what is gonna happen bring it on.
