Who will be the Group 2 Winner of the Super Eight phase of the T20 World Cup?

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 has reached a critical point, with each team giving their all in the Super Eight stage for the four semifinal spots. 

The tournament, being hosted in the USA and the Caribbean, has been extremely competitive, a breath of fresh air with bowlers having a good time, and has delivered quite a few memorable moments such as super over finishes, the USA beating Pakistan and more recently, Afghanistan defeating Australia. Among other shocking things, we saw Pakistan, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka failing to progress to Super Eight, while the USA made it through in their debut T20 World Cup.

In the initial phase, 20 teams battled it out in four groups, with top two teams from each group advancing to the Super Eight stage. Now Group 1 features Australia, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and India, while Group 2 includes the West Indies, England, South Africa, and the USA.

Today, we talk about who could be the winner of Group 2 at the end of the Super Eight stage. Only two games are remaining in this group with four games already being played. South Africa sits at the top of the table with two wins in two games whereas England and West Indies have won a game each.

Recent form of teams

South Africa: W W W W W

South AfricaSouth Africa remained unbeaten in the group stage, where they defeated Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Netherlands and Nepal. They continued that winning streak in Super Eight, defeating the USA by 18 runs and following it up with a 7-run victory over England. Quinton de Kock was a key difference maker against England, smashing 65 off 38 while David Miller struck 43 in 28 deliveries to post 163 on the board. Keshav Maharaj picked 2 for 25 in four overs, while Kagiso Rabada, Marco Jansen and Anrich Nortje did an excellent job to defend 25 off the last three overs.

West Indies: W W W L W

West IndiesThe co-hosts West Indies had a dominant group stage, beating PNG, Uganda, New Zealand, and Afghanistan. They had a poor start to the Super Eight stage, losing to England by eight wickets but hammered the USA by nine wickets in the second game. Roston Chase picked 3 for 18 in four overs while Andre Russell also bagged three scalps as they bowled out the opponents to 128. Playing his first game in the tournament, Shai Hope blasted an unbeaten 82 off 39 to finish the chase in 10.5 overs.

England: L W W W L

EnglandThe defending champions have had a rollercoaster of a campaign so far. After a washout and a defeat against Australia, they secured their place in Super Eight with victories over Oman and Namibia. England thrashed West Indies in the first Super Eight game but fell short by seven runs against South Africa. Jofra Archer (3/40) and Adil Rashid (1/20) did a good job to restrict the Proteas to 163. Their top order couldn’t get going but Harry Brook (53 off 37) and Liam Livingstone (33 off 17) brought them close.


The United States of AmericaThe USA, playing their first ever T20 World Cup, made it to the Super Eight phase with victories over Canada and Pakistan. They haven’t had a great time in this round, however, losing to South Africa by 18 runs and by nine wickets against West Indies.

England will be looking to improve their net run-rate when they take on the USA at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados on June 23. England are a superior side between the two and you can bet on them at odds of 1.09 on 22Bet.

England have a much stronger batting and bowling unit but the USA have shown they can hang in with the top teams on these pitches. If you want to take a punt on the USA, bet at odds of 7.53 on Parimatch.

West Indies vs South Africa

Odds for West Indies win: 1.918 (22Bet)
Odds for South Africa win: 1.97 (22Bet)

West Indies and South Africa are set to clash in this crucial Group 2 fixture at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua on June 24. West Indies have won four of the previous five encounters and playing at home, they are slight favourites at odds of 1.918 on 22Bet.

West Indies have a destructive batting unit and a spin department that can trouble the South African batters. The Proteas have a pace attack that can pose big problems to the Windies batters. Considering the strengths and weaknesses of these teams, this match could go either way.

Who will top Group 2 in Super Eight?

Talking about who will top Group 2 in Super Eight of the T20 World Cup, the betting market has South Africa as favourites with 1.90 odds while West Indies are second with odds of 2.75 odds on BetWinner. England has a tougher task, and they have odds of 5.00 to win the group.

As things stand, South Africa occupy the top spot with four points and a net run-rate of 0.625. West Indies are second with two points and an NRR of 1.814 while England sit third with two points and an NRR of 0.412.

The equation for South Africa is pretty simple, and that is to win the match against West Indies. But if they lose and England beat the USA by a big margin, they could be knocked out. West Indies have a good net run-rate and a decent victory over South Africa will propel them to the top spot. For England to top the group, they need West Indies to win and their own net run-rate to be higher.

Eventually, it comes down to the West Indies vs South Africa clash. Given the home advantage and a more in-form batting unit, we expect West Indies to come out on top in this game.

Our prediction is for West Indies to top Group 2 of Super Eight at the T20 World Cup.
