England (ENG-W), under Heather Knight’s leadership, easily advanced to the semifinals of the ongoing Women’s T20 World Cup 2023 after a dominant performance in the group stage that included four straight victories. The hosts, South Africa (SA-W), on the other hand, started their campaign with a defeat to Sri Lanka but finished the group stage with two victories to get to the semi-final.
In the event’s final four, which will take place on February 24 at Newlands in Cape Town, two sides are now slated to square off. Even though Heather Knight and company appear to be favourites to win, the home team could give the opposition a run for their money in the pivotal match.
In their previous five matches against each other, the Three Lions havea significant advantage with five victories compared to the Proteas’ single victory. If South Africa defeats England in the semi-final match on February 24, it remains to be seen if they can stop England’s dominance run.
