Proteas focus on wicket

NEITHER for the first time nor the last, women will solve a problem for men when the World T20 semifinals are played in Dhaka today.

Aaron Phangiso, in particular, should thank his lucky female stars if he gets a game having spent the entire group stage on the bench.

At 10.30am (SA time) today, the SA women’s team will play England. At 3pm, the SA and India men’s teams will clash.

Faf du Plessis’s team played all four of their group games in Chittagong, and he said yesterday the women’s semi would be an important indicator of the approach his side would take into their showdown against the Indians – who will have better knowledge of the more spin-friendly conditions having played their group matches in Dhaka.
