Cricket Match Preview:

South Africa have had wood over West Indies for a long time. A few years back, the fixtures between South Africa and West Indies used to be quite regular in the International calendar. West Indies used to tour South Africa for an entire tour of five test matches and ODIs and South Africa used to return the favour as well. But such has been the dominance of South Africa in those contests that those fixtures stopped getting scheduled due to an increasing loss of interest among the crowd.

But the tide seems to be turning ever so slightly for West Indies. It might once again be a false hope but in Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer and Oshane Thomas, West Indies have unearthed some fantastic talents. Combine these talents with destructive Chris Gayle and Andre Russell, you have one of the most dangerous ODI sides in the world. South Africa will have to be careful with their plans when they face these players in the warm-up cricket game.

South Africa, on the other hand, perhaps for the first time ever, are not going as an outright favourite for the World Cup. Ever since their inclusion in International cricket in 1992, they have been a side to watch out for and even without a single title to show for it, they have been a dangerous side for their opponents. On this occasion, however, they are coming into the tournament as an underdog.

It might be AB de Villiers’ absence, it might be Hashim Amla’s diminishing form, but certainly, South Africa aren’t the force they used to be in years gone by. But they have two men in prime form in Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis and, along with dangerous David Miller and JP Duminy, their batting lineup is still going to be a handful. Their bowling has always been good and in Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi, they have a potent bowling attack along with the spin of Imran Tahir.

Cricket Match Information:

South Africa will take on West Indies in their second warm-up game of the World Cup. So far, West Indies have already played one warm-up against Australia, which they lost by seven wickets, whereas South Africa are scheduled to play Sri Lanka today. These warm-up games are useful for all the teams to get accustomed to English conditions and to also get the lineups right before the actual games begin.

South Africa

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

South Africa will be led by Faf du Plessis in this cricket game and the World Cup. Our prediction is they will continue with the same playing eleven that played Sri Lanka in the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of South Africa’s playing XI:

  • Quinton de Kock
  • Faf du Plessis
  • Hashim Amla
  • Aiden Markram
  • David Miller
  • JP Duminy
  • Chris Morris
  • Kagiso Rabada
  • Imran Tahir
  • Dale Steyn
  • Tabrez Shamsi

West Indies

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

West Indies played admirably on this entire cricket tour of England of West Indies. They will now look to affirm their status as a dangerous ODI cricket side in the world. Our prediction is of the inclusion of the likes of Chris Gayle in the playing eleven for this cricket game.

Here is our prediction of West Indies’ playing XI:

  • JD Campbell
  • Roston Chase
  • Shai Hope
  • Chris Gayle
  • Darren Bravo
  • Sheldon Cottrell
  • Ashley Nurse
  • KAJ Roach
  • Andre Russell
  • Shanon Gabriel
  • Jason Holder

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Chris Gayle will be our man to watch out for in this cricket game and in the upcoming World Cup. The great man will be playing his last World Cup and he is not one who is shy to make his mark. Hence, our prediction is of a good performance from him.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international ODI cricket game played here was between Pakistan and England recently. England won that cricket game by six wickets after chasing down 359 runs in just 44.5 overs. Our prediction is of the score of around 300 once again. Conditions are expected to be cold and windy.

Our Prediction:

South Africa will begin the game of cricket as favourites. They have had dominance over West Indies for a long time. Hence, our prediction is of a South African win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Chris Gayle (WI) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Lungi Ngidi (SA) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Chris Gayle (WI)
