We have got Match Prediction on the basis of current form, head-to-head, stats, and players to watch out for in the upcoming match.
Current form for South Africa: W W W W L
South Africa lost their opening match against Australia and they will be looking to get their maiden win of the tournament. The Proteas could not come up with a collective batting performance but they were able to come up with a better bowling show as they didn’t make it easy for Australia to chase down the total.
Current form for West Indies: L L L L L
West Indies are in poor form as they have lost all their previous five matches. The Windies were bundled out for only 55 runs as they struggled to get going against the England spinners in their opening match. The Kieron Pollard-led team will need to turn the tide with the bat if they have to be competitive.
Head to Head: Matches – 15, Won by WI – 6, Won by SA – 9.
South Africa clearly holds the advantage in the head-to-head battle.
Players to look out for: Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Rassie van der Dussen will hold the key for South Africa.
Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo, Oshane Thomas, and Lendl Simmons will be the important players for West Indies.
Match Prediction: South Africa will enter the contest as favorites as West Indies are in horrid form but the Caribbean team will be motivated to make a comeback.
