Pakistan clinched their first win of the ongoing competition on Sunday against the Netherlands. It was a complete show by the men in green. They would need more of it in the coming days. The team would also need some help from other nations.

Firstly, Pakistan has to win its remaining games against Bangladesh and South Africa. They then would want India to lose one of its games against Bangladesh or Zimbabwe. Or, Pakistan might need South Africa to lose against the Netherlands to make their path easy to the semis.

South Africa is the team to beat

The Proteas have been in fine form in the 2022 T20 World Cup. After their first game against Zimbabwe, it felt as though their bad luck would hamper their progress. However, with two good wins, especially the one against India, South Africa looks to have a balanced team to win the event.

The pace attack of the squad is arguably the best in the competition. While Wayne Parnell and Kagiso Rabada are excellent new-ball bowlers, Anrich Nortje is the perfect enforcer for the middle overs. Lungi Ngidi has the habit of breaking partnerships and he did that with ease against India. Keshav Maharaj is a fine spinner to add variety to this attack. The batting department is also in fine form. Temba Bavuma needs to click. Otherwise, the other batters are stepping up at the right time. It would take an unreal performance from Pakistan to defeat this team.
