Both sides enter this day fixture after matches against the West Indies, but while South Africa were comfortable winners, the Netherlands lost and lost badly.

Venue: Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali

Team News

South Africa: Graeme Smith (c), Hashim Amla, Jacques Kallis, AB De Villiers (wk), Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy, Johan Botha, Robin Peterson, Morne Morkel, Dale Steyn, Imran Tahir

The Proteas are unlikely to make any changes and will stick with the same side that cruised to a seven-wicket win against the West Indies.

Netherlands: Alexei Kervezee, Wesley Barresi, Tom Cooper, Ryan ten Doeschate, Bas Zuiderent, Tom de Grooth, Peter Borren (c), Mudassar Bukhari, Pieter Seelaar, Bernard Loots, Berend Westdijk

Netherlands are expected to name an unchanged side with several players to receive a second chance. Zuiderent and Westdijk need a good performance to stay in the team.

Prediction

The Proteas will be hoping to capitalise on that with a professional performance that could not only boost confidence but also their net run-rate.

Amla and Kallis will be keen to score big after failing in their first match and one look at the South African batting line-up means it could be a long day for the Netherlands if they have to bowl first.

The match takes on extra significance for the Dutch squad who need to keep morale high ahead of winnable fixtures against Bangladesh and Ireland later in the tournament.

Tom Cooper, Ryan ten Doeschate and Alexei Kervezee must fire with the bat if the Netherlands are to win.

Any chance of an upset is unlikely and South Africa should win easily as they prepare for a blockbuster against England on Saturday.

Key Men

Jacques Kallis – After missing out against West Indies he could take apart an expensive Netherlands bowling attack.

Ryan ten Doeschate – Needs to repeat his centurion heroics against England to give his side any chance.
