Live on Skysports 1: Thu 03.45 & 11.30: South Africa and Pakistan will be eyeing victories as they face the Netherlands and Canada.
South Africa are just 1/33 (Totesport) to beat Netherlands and should follow up their victory over the Windies with another easy win.
South Africa are being eased into this tournament but will need to be a bit more ruthless when they come to face the bigger sides if they are to justify their outright 9/2 tag with Stan James.
AB de Villiers was excellent last time out, he should be a threat for South Africa and at 11/2 (Totesport) is a great price but there is slight preference for Jacques Kallis, who will use all of his vast experience to bounce back from a poor 4 runs last time.
Imran Tahir did the damage to the West Indies last time and at 7/2 (bet365), could have another field dat against the Dutch. As for the Netherlands, it’s going to be a stuggle and Ten Doeschate could be the key with bat and ball, he is 11/4 with 888sport for top wickets and top bat.
Later in the day, Pakistan are just 1/50 (Coral) as they take on Canada. Following Pakistan’s excellent victory over Sri Lanka, they suddenly look a threat in this competition, shifting in to 7/1 (Boylesports).
Canada don’t really stand a chance of an upset. They seem to have found their level; scoring 122 and 123 in their previous matches, they will struggle to break 150. Shahid Afridi will add to his 9 wickets and he is in line to take the most at 11/4 (Ladbrokes).
Pakistan are 1/2 to hit the most sixes (Stan James) in a match that will be dominated by Afridi’s men.
