#South Africa vs West Indies Team News
South Africa :
Three defeats in 3 matches has pushed South Africa in further mysterious. It is not the defeats that is hurting them but the manner in which they have been playing. They bowled well against England, but their batsmen failed to put up a brave fight against england and India.
South Africa have suffered a nightmare start to the World Cup, losing all three matches and having seamer Dale Steyn ruled out of the tournament injured.South Africa have a dominant record in this fixture, however, winning 44 of their 61 previous ODIs against the West Indies.
Their batting, however, has been found struggling in all three matches. Twice they’ve succumbed to pressure while chasing whereas Indian bowlers got better of them in the 3 ODI. Barring Faf du Plessis, no batsmen has looked settled at the crease for them which is definitely a cause of concern for their management. The likes of Quinton de Kock, David Miller, and Hashim Amla would have to use their experience and bail them out of the trouble with a win in their upcoming fixture. One thing which is going for them is that they bat deep, but that could only be useful if their batsmen contribute something substantial.
With the ball, meanwhile, Kagiso Rabada returned to some of his best form last time out as he took 2-39 from ten overs against India. Imran Tahir is, like Rabada, also in the top five in the world rankings and has four wickets so far in this year’s tournament.
West Indies :
West Indies’ fast bowlers have excelled so far, but they could not follow up victory against Pakistan as they lost their second match to Australia.That is due to lack of experience was pretty apparent for West Indies against the Aussies where they failed to secure a win despite being in a position to dictate terms for most of the match.
Evin Lewis replaced Darren Bravo last time out, opening the batting with Chris Gayle as Shai Hope dropped to number three. West Indies are having to carefully manage Gayle and Andre Russell’s fitness, but there were no other changes for the match against Australia.
While their batting has taken all the credit much largely due to the flamboyance and the fearless attitude, their bowlers have been unsung heroes for them in both the matches. They first restricted Pakistan to a total which their batsmen would chase down 99 times out of 100 on any surface on the world. In their second game, they reduced the Australians to 79 for 5, before they released the string and allowed Australia to claw back.
Oshane Thomas and Jason Holder took seven wickets between them to lead West Indies to victory against Pakistan, while Andre Russell claimed 2-4 from three overs. After dismissing Pakistan for 105 in 21.4 overs, Chris Gayle’s half-century led them to a seven-wicket win.
