WI vs SA 3rd T20I Match Preview
The West Indies had to face disappointment in the last game after winning the 1st match of the series. Opting to bowl first, Windies restricted the Africans again to a below-par score of 166. The right-arm off-spinner Kevin Sinclair bowled beautifully in the middle overs and picked up two crucial wickets of the openers. Obed McCoy also displayed his skill with the ball in the death overs and picked up three wickets in his four overs. The all-rounders Jason Holder and Andre Russell also bowled decently and picked up a wicket each. Their bowling department has been excellent in the first two games so far.
They had a sloppy performance with the bat in this game. After chasing a total of 160 easily in the first game in just 15 overs. The team managed to score just 150 runs in this game. Their middle-order completely failed, with the likes of Pollard, Pooran, and Russell being dismissed in single digits. Their openers again gave them a decent start. Andre Fletcher was the highest scorer for them as he scored 35 runs. Fabian Allen also played a brilliant knock of 34 runs from just 12 balls but was not enough in the end.
The Windies is surely a strong team on paper and they would hope that their power hitters deliver for them in this clash.
The South African team has made a comeback in the series after they were completely outplayed in the first game. Their openers gave them a fantastic start. Quinton De Kock and Reeza Hendricks scored 26 and 42 runs, respectively, and made full use of the powerplay. Their skipper Bavuma also played a brilliant knock of 46 runs, which helped the team reach 160. They did not finish the innings well as the middle order collapsed completely.
The bowling department proved its worth in this game. Their key bowler Kagiso Rabada who went for runs in the first game, bowled brilliantly in this game as he ended his spell with the figures of 3/37 in 4 overs. The left-arm spinner George Linde also bowled pretty well compared to the first game and picked up two wickets. Lungi Ngidi was expensive as he conceded 49 runs from his four overs. Nortje and Shamsi also bowled well and picked up a wicket each.
The bowling department looks completely sorted, and they would hope that the batters score even more runs going into this game. Both the teams are won at 1-1 match, and the 3rd game will be a cracker of a contest.
