In the last game, South Africa narrowly defeated Nepal by a single run, with Reeza Hendricks contributing a significant 43 runs to their total. They remained undefeated in the group stage and would hope to  continue their match-winning momentum in the Super Eights as well. The Proteas played a few close games against Nepal and Netherlands but were able to get over the line. They would be mindful of their batting challenges and would be determined to begin assertively and positively, whether batting first or second. 

On the other hand, it's been a remarkable journey for the USA thus far, surprising everyone in a group (Group A) where India and Pakistan were widely expected to go through. Their stunning Super Over triumph against the 2009 champions showcased their formidable capabilities and thrust them into the global spotlight. USA also defeated Canada convincingly in the tournament opener. However, this match marks the United States’ first game away from home in the tournament, and they have yet to secure a victory outside US soil. It will be intriguing to see if the United States can achieve another surprising victory in the tournament.
