South Africa will be coming into the contest as favorites after their stunning performance in this year’s competition.
The team has been in outstanding form after winning five out of the seven matches which include just one defeat, which is why they finished in the second position on the points table with 11 points.
The management will be hoping for similar kinds of performances in the matches to come.
The batting form of Laura Wolvaardt is a big positive for the team as she is the leading run-getter in the competition with 433 runs at an average of 61.85, which include five half-centuries in just seven innings.
Other than that, Sune Luus has been amongst the runs as well as she has scored 249 runs at an average of 35.57.
In the wickets column, three bowlers have been running the show with 10 or more wickets to their name including pacers Shabnim Ismail, Marizanne Kapp and Marizanne Kapp.
England will be coming into the contest as slightly underdogs, largely because of the result against the same opponents earlier in the campaign.
The side, who are the defending champions in this year’s competition, had a slow start where they suffered three consecutive defeats and had to win four matches in a row to secure their place in the last four.
The management will be hoping that the players will be able to continue their momentum in the remaining matches as well.
In terms of the batting performance, Nat Sciver is leading the charts for England with 273 runs at an average of 54.60 along with the strike-rate of 82.72, which include a century and a fifty. Other than her, wicketkeeper-batter Tammy Beaumont and young all-rounder Sophia Dunkley has also scored more than 200 runs in the campaign.
The bowling department has been overwhelmingly dependent on the performances of the spin duo of Sophie Ecclestone and Charlie Dean. They have 14 and 10 wickets respectively.
