It's pretty straightforward, as Wayne Parnell put it: South Africa are in the knockout stages. They must beat Netherlands to go through to the semi-finals and if you'd said that pre-tournament, many would have thought the conclusion foregone, but this has been a World Cup of surprises and perhaps there's one more?

In the spotlight
In a pace pack that seems to have it all, Kagiso Rabada has flown under the radar. He has taken only two wickets from four matches so far and has the highest economy rate of any of the South African bowlers. In dealing with swing from Parnell, pace from Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi's slew of slower balls, line-ups have identified Rabada as a bowler they can target, which is unlikely to sit well with him. Although he has long shied away from being called the leader of the attack, Rabada is South Africa's most experienced bowler, and he will want to turn in a big performance as the tournament approaches the business end.
David Miller sat out the match against Pakistan with lower back spasms and South Africa will be keen to get him up and running as soon as he is fit. If that's in this game, Tristan Stubbs may miss out with Heinrich Klaasen retaining his place. South Africa may also bring back Keshav Maharaj at the expense of one of the quicks.
Pitch and conditions
An early start may prove challenging for the batters because the ball won't skid on as it does at night. Expect inconsistent bounce and a slowish start, although runs may come from the short, square boundaries. The surface also won't offer the quicks as much as some of the other venues, which could take the sting out of the contest to some degree. There's been rain in the lead-up to this match but Sunday's forecast is clear.
Stats and trivia
- South Africa and Netherlands have met once in a T20I before, at the 2014 World Cup. South Africa won by six runs.
- In four matches at this venue so far in this World Cup, the average first innings score is 164, and the chasing team has only won once.
South Africa are hoping the game won't get as close as it did against Pakistan, according to Wayne Parnell
