WEST INDIES vs SOUTH AFRICA PREVIEW

With back-to-back victories on their minds, West Indies gear up to face South Africa for the second time in the tri-nation series. The victory over Australia in their previous match helps the hosts’ cause as they try to inch closer to a place in the final.

Wary that a loss would see them slip farther from the other two teams, South Africa will look to put their recent setback behind & avenge their earlier loss against the West Indies. Relying on the trio of AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla & Quinton de Kock, the South Africans have exposed their lack of depth and added pressure on their key players.

Sunil Narine, who returned with six wickets from the teams’ previous match, could once again prove to be a nemesis for South Africa. Their victory over Australia, two days ago, also showed that the West Indians have the depth to bat to a win.

South Africa will need an overall performance to get past the hosts. They’ve been good in patches, but it’s time they put in a wholesome display.
