The Kingston crowd is all set to witness a thrilling clash between South Africa and Nepal. Both teams are standing in very different positions in the points table. South Africa is holding a strong position in the points table. They are still unbeaten. With that unbeaten steak, they are ready to face Nepal

But before stepping into the game against Nepal, South Africa shuffled their squad and brought an interesting change. Their prime bowler Keshav Maharaj is missing out on the game. That change caught attention. He performed well in previous matches but there is another reason for this change. 

As Maharaj is absent, Tabraiz Shamsi has been named in the playing. South African captain Aiden Markram disclosed the reason behind this change. He revealed that the team made this change to give Shamsi a chance to play a match before stepping into the Super Eight stage. In the toss time, Markram said, “One change, Keshav Maharaj is going to miss out for Tabraiz Shamsi. He hasn’t had much game time so this is the last opportunity to get him some game time before the Super 8s.”

Toss Update:

South Africa is facing Nepal in their last group-stage game. After winning the tos,, Nepal captain Rohit Paudel opted to bowl first. He said, “We’ll chase, there will be dew in the second innings. It will be easier for our bowlers to bowl first, batting should also be easier in the second innings. We got some good time for preperation. Got some time to setup our skills and train.”
