South Africa are the favorites to win this match, as they are sitting second in the points table with four wins from five matches. Pakistan, on the other hand, are struggling in seventh place with just two wins from five matches.
South Africa have a well-balanced team, with a strong batting lineup and a potent bowling attack. Their batting lineup is led by Quinton de Kock, Aiden Markram, and Rassie van der Dussen, who have all been in good form in the tournament so far. Their bowling attack is led by Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Tabraiz Shamsi, who are all capable of taking wickets on any pitch.
Pakistan also have a good team, but they have been inconsistent so far in the tournament. Their batting lineup is led by Babar Azam, Fakhar Zaman, and Mohammad Rizwan, who are all world-class batsmen. Their bowling attack is led by Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Mohammad Nawaz, who are all capable of taking wickets.
However, Pakistan need to win this match if they want to keep their hopes of qualifying for the semifinals alive. They need to bat well and put up a big score on the board. Their bowlers also need to bowl well and take wickets at regular intervals.
The pitch in Chennai is expected to favor spinners, so both teams are expected to pack their attacks with slow bowlers. The match is expected to be a close one, but South Africa are the favorites to win.
