ICC T20 World Cup 2014 live streaming and live TV telecast can be enjoyed in India on Star Sports network. The tournament is turning out to be interesting with no team ready to give up. South Africa lost its first match against Sri Lanka but bounced back to win a nail biter against New Zealand. It is time today for another match featuring South Africa. They play against Netherlands. Meanwhile in the second match Sri Lanka will lock horns with England.

South Africa vs Netherlands preview

This is a great opportunity for South Africa to win one and win it in style. They would like to win it big and improve their net run rate by leaps and bounds. They are well aware that they haven't played to their potential. They lost narrowly against Sri Lanka and their win against New Zealand was a real hard fight. Nothing too comprehensive about it. 

They have a good bowling line up. Dale Steyn was phenomenal with his spell against New Zealand. The only big issue for South Africa has been their batting starts. Once an early wicket falls the next batsmen go into a shell that drops the overall run rate. By the way Duminy is doing a good job down the order.

On the other hand Netherlands looked really promising after the end of the qualifier rounds. But they were bowled out only for 39 runs against Sri Lanka. That was the lowest ever total in any T20 international match. Peter Borren; skipper of Netherlands is still confident that the team would play to its level best and try to defeat and biggie in this tournament.

Sri Lanka vs England preview

England batted well against New Zealand just to see their team losing due to Duckworth and Lewis method. England would like to gather everything, forget that heart breaking defeat and bounce back hard before its too late. They are up against a team which is rated at the top in this tournament. Looking at the points tally one can easily make out that till now Sri Lanka and India have performed better than any other teams.

Sri Lankans aren't taking Englishmen lightly. Captain Chandimal is well aware that England is full of T20 specialists. Morgan, Bopara or Hales can do wonders for a team in a T20 match. Chandimal is also happy with the bowlers' performance against Netherlands.

England player Bopara agreed that loss against New Zealand was heart breaking but he pointed out that its time to forget it and move on. He added that beating Sri Lanka won't be easy but if they manage to do so that would be a huge confidence booster.

Stay tuned with our previews guys as we will see you tomorrow for India vs Bangladesh and West Indies vs Australia matches of Group 2. Big matches, aren't they?
