As per credible reports, Vernon Philander, who has missed the past three games with a hamstring injury will make his way to the playing eleven in this match. Faf du Plessis may also play in tomorrow’s match.
South Africa is a well balanced team, but their major strength is none other than Skipper AB De Villiers. The World’s No.1 batsman is in his peak form, and no bowlers under this planet will be capable enough to stop him if he walks down to the pitch.
The last match against Pakistan also showcased his fighting ability and killing instincts. South Africa lost the match just because there was no one to support AB De Villiers in the run chase.
UAE is already out of this tournament, and they have two matches to complete in this tournament before wrapping up their outing. After the clash against South Africa, they will play against West Indies on March 15.
