WI vs SA 2nd T20I Match Preview
The West Indies won the 1st match of the series comfortably by eight wickets and chased a total of 161 just in 15 overs. Opting to bowl first, the Windies restricted South Africa to a total of just 160. Fabian Allen and DJ Bravo were the pick of the bowlers and picked up 2 wickets each and were also very economical. Jason Holder and Andre Russell also bowled well and picked up a wicket each.
Talking about their batting, Both the openers gave them a fantastic start and won the game for them in the power play itself. Evin Lewis was their stand-out batsman as he played a brilliant knock of 71 runs from just 35 balls. Andre Fletcher also assisted him well by scoring 30 runs. The Universe boss also played a decent knock of 32 runs. Andre Rusell, in the end, ensured that the team crossed the line before the 15 overs and scored a quickfire 23 runs.
The Windies are looking like a different team altogether and the Africans need to match their caliber to bounce back in this series.
Though South Africa dominated in the test series but was completely outplayed by the West Indies in the 1st game. Batting first, the Africans managed to score a below-par total of 160 runs. Quinton de Kock gave them a good start as he scored 37 runs but could not get any support from the other end. Rassie van der Dussen played a brilliant knock of 56 runs in the middle order and helped his team post a total of 160. They would hope that their batting department delivers in this game.
They looked poor with the ball as well as none of the bowlers were able to pick up wickets except Tabraiz Shamsi. Their best bowler Kagiso Rabada also did not look in a good rhythm and was expensive. Bowling on a flat pitch is always not easy, but their bowlers need to come up with some plans to restrict the big hitters.
South Africa will need to step up their game with both bat and bowl to make a comeback in this series.
