ICC Women's World T20 started off on a terrific note with India upsetting Australia in the group A of the tournament. With India's win, not only the tournament has grown more competitive, but also inspiring for the lesser known teams. It was visible in today's Group B game between Thailand and West Indies as Windies Women had to word hard for the win. Given how close the matches thus far in the tournament have been, South Africa will be fancying their chances against England, who are seeded higher than the Proteas. England and South Africa are set to lock horns on Sunday, 23rd February, in an all-important encounter, which is to be played at WACA Cricket Ground, Perth. Although, Group B is not going to be as tightly contested as Group A, a win here will be crucial for both the sides. Besides a couple of points, a win here will imbibe the winning team with confidence going forward and provide it with nice cushion for the games to follow. Considering the importance of the match, we expect both sides to come hard at each other and consequently a nail-biting encounter.
Coming into this edition of World Cup, England have made plenty of changes to their squad including the support staff. With newly applointed head coach in Lisa Keightley, we expect England to display fresh ideas, something which is a must to take on some of the more settled teams in the competition. As compared to the last edition of the tournament, England are going to miss the services of Sarah Taylor, Laura Marsh, and Danni Hazell. Having said that, they still have a pretty settled lineup with most of the players same as they had in last World Cup, so experience or lack thereof, is not going to be a problem for them.
Going by the ICC rankings, England are the second best team in this World Cup and best in their group. Their performance of late, however, has been nothing like that. They were pretty ordinary in the recently concluded tri-series, in which they failed to even qualify for the finale. They faced a heavy defeat at the hands of India in the opening match of the series and will now have be to be wary of South Africa, who can be a dangerous team to deal with on their day.
England's turnaround in form, for worse, happened with the Ashes, in which they were comprehensively defeated in all formats of the game. Such was the dominance of the Aussies over them that they won only one game, which was the last T20I of the tour. They did pretty well in all of their tours thereafter before meeting a dead-end in the tri-series in Australia.
On paper, England have a terrific side. The likes of Danni Wyatt and Heather Knight have plenty of experience and good memories of playing in Australia. Heather Knight, in particular, appears to be in pretty good form, and was only one of the few English players who did well in the recently conluded triangular series. The other one was Natalie Sciver, who has been delivering for England across the formats from quite some time now. Sophie Ecclestone and Fran Wilson will be their key players with the ball.
All in all, England are an excellent side on paper and when in form, they are likely to exhibit their supremacy on most days. However, they are not in prime form at the moment and would need inspiration from their senior players. If England manages to perform to their potential in the upcoming fixtures, it is going to be pretty difficult to face them, not just for the Proteas, but also for all other teams who are set to meet England in the matches to follow.

Just like their men's team, South Africa's women's team is yet to prove its potential in the ICC events. In bilateral competitions, the Proteas have shown glimpses of brilliance, but have always been over-shadowed by better seeded sides. In ICC rankings as well, they occupy middle of the ladder, and will be looking to get into the top tier with an improved performance in this tournament where the world will be watching them play.
They have pretty big names, some of the format's specialists, available at their disposal. The likes of Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Dane van Niekerk, and Marizanne Kapp have done exceedingly well over the years in different leagues for all the teams they played for and against.
South Africa will go in with nothing to lose mindset considering that they have never gone past the group stage in any of the World Cups. Having said that, they have shown pretty good form coming into this tournament and could be a dangerous team to deal with.

Going by the ICC rankings, the different between the two sides is similar to that between a day and a night. However, taking form into consideration, that difference is almost bridged. South Africa are coming into this tournament with a fantastic show against New Zealand whereas England displayed poor performance against in the recently concluded. Considering only form or the two sides, South Africa are likely to trump England. However, England are a better side on paper, and with experienced players available throughout the lineup, betting on an England's win would be the way to go in this important Group B fixture.
