After winning their first game in the tournament against Afghanistan, South Africa will be taking on a side that is yet to be beaten in Group 1. Both the sides have been batting ferociously and it will be about who holds their nerves better than the other on the day. South Africa have posted twice in excess of 200 and West Indies have also chased 180-plus quite successfully.
South African batsmen have been the most prolific ones in the tournament so far as they have played two games so far and both the times they have crossed the 200 runs figure. And if they manage to do it yet another time, we are surely going to witness yet another exciting game of cricket in Group 1. All of their top 5 have got runs under their belt and Duminy and de Kock have played brilliantly in both the matches and were the most impressive of the lot. In the last match, it was de Kock and du Plessis who played a knock of 40 odd and de Villiers stood out from the crowd with 64 from just 29 balls. So, if they play another similar knock then West Indies will really have to come up with something big to win the game.
However, South African bowlers got the hammering in both the matches they have played so far and in the game against England they couldn’t defend 229 runs and against Afghanistan they conceded 172 while defending 210. Chris Morris impressed with his figures of 4 for 27 in the last match while Rabada, Abbott and Tahir picked up 2 wickets each as well. David Weise was the most expensive of the lot as he conceded 47 from his 4 overs. So, that’s one area where they have to improve considerably against hard-hitting West Indies.
West Indies managed to win both the matches they have played so far quite convincingly and it was their batsmen who stood up to the task on both occasions. So, they are definitely in top batting form. It was Chris Gayle who won it single-handedly in the first match against England scoring a brilliant 100 at the top and then it was Andre Fletcher who played a brilliant knock of 84* from just 64 balls against Sri Lanka. Also, they have lots of firepower in their batting line up with players like Marlon Samuels, Andre Russell, Dwayne Bravo and Darren Sammy also part of their playing XI. And the fact that they will be up against a bowling side that has not been at its best in the tournament so far makes them more in command of the proceedings as the two sides meet at Nagpur on Friday.
Their bowlers did a great job against Sri Lanka to restrict them to just 122 runs in the last game. Samuel Badree lead the crew with 3 for 12 in his 4 overs. Benn and Bravo also bowled economically and Bravo picked up a couple of wickets as well. If they bowl like that again, they stand a big chance of winning it as well.
He impressed with his stroke play in the last match and scored 40 odd. Putting his side back on winning track is also quite an achievement.
2 wins out of 2, what else you could ask from a captain. He will be expected to contribute with bat and ball as well in the next game.
- Match Predictions
- South Africa are favorites considering their batting form, but West Indies are yet to be beaten as well. Interesting contest for sure!
- Pitch/Weather Updates
- Nagpur wicket will definitely support the bowlers. It’ll be hot on Friday with 41° C.
