After beating England in their tournament opener, South Africa will look to maintain their winning momentum when they meet minnows Thailand in Match 11 of the Women's T20 World Cup 2020. South Africa defeated England in a close match and they will enter this contest against Thailand as firm favourites.
The Thai team are playing their first ever Women's T20 World Cup and have been bulldozed in both of their games thus far. They showed glimpses of their potential against West Indies in their first match before being absolutely decimated by England.
South Africa will rest their hopes on captain Dane van Niekerk, who played a fantastic knock against England. She even picked up two wickets with the ball. Lizelle Lee also has the ability to blow away the opposition in case South Africa decide to bat first.
Thailand captain Sornarin Tippoch will hope her side can put on a better show against South Africa. Although their campaign is all but over, they will still be keen to showcase their skills and the likes of Nattaya Boochatham and Soraya Lateh will hope to give the South African batswomen a few problems.
