Asian side Nepal (NEP) will continue their ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 campaign by taking on South Africa (SA). Both sides will lock horns at the Arnos Vale Ground, Kingstown, St. Vincent, in the 31st game of the tournament on Saturday, June 15. Nepal have played two games in the tournament so far, where they registered one win, and the second game was abandoned without a ball being bowled. 

On the other hand, South Africa is currently unbeaten in the ongoing marquee event. Having played three matches, the Proteas have won every game that they have played so far. As the clash against Nepal approaches, South Africa will hope to put in a similar performance and keep up their form.
