South Africa Captain AB de Villiers is very confident to win this year’s T20 World Cup. South Africa has to take this match seriously as they were beaten twice by Zimbabwe in previous three T20 matches in un-official Tri Series. South Africa already faced a big set back as 5 of their players get ill but they are expected to be fit before the match. A Morkel is also facing some fitness problem and will miss this match.
Zimbabwe did not performed well in their opening match against host Sri Lanka. They were completley destroyed by Sri Lankan spin twins.
