The 18th match of the T20 World Cup 2022, which is the sixth game of the Super 12, will see South Africa taking on new-entrants Zimbabwe at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart. It’ll be a momentous occasion for Zimbabwe, given that the upcoming game will be their first-ever game of the Super 12 as they scripted history by making their way into the next round.
South Africa is in good touch, and their bowling unit especially is a formidable force. The bowlers have proved their potential time and again, and they put up a brilliant show in the practice game against New Zealand where the Kiwis were knocked out for mere 98 runs in the first innings. It will surely be a challenge for the Zimbabwean batters to face the Proteas bowlers.
