South Africa vs West Indies: Will South Africa’s Fate be any Different Today?
14 matches in World Cup 2019 have completed and South Africa is still at the bottom of the points table followed only by Afghanistan. The team had played 3 matches and lost all three against England, Bangladesh, and India. Their fourth match is against West Indies today and the haunting question is whether the team’s fate is going to be any different?
South Africa is among one of the best teams that had entered the World Cup 2019. Fantastic players like Faf Du Plessis, JP Duminy, David Miller, Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, Rassie van der Dussen, Chris Morris, Imran Tahir, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, etc., are all part of South African team. Despite comprising of so many experienced and talented players, SA is struggling to stand victorious in the WC 2019.
They lost their first match against England by a massive 104 runs. None among the team except Quinton de Kock and Rassie van der Dussen had batted well leading to a devastating loss. Their battle against Bangladesh hadn’t gone well too. Though they lost the match by a meager difference the loss did hurt the morale of the Proteas. Their next loss against India was also another disaster from which the team is still healing.
On a positive note, the team might make a comeback against West Indies in today’s match but given the record of West Indies team in the previous matches, it might prove challenging for the Proteas.
West Indies team had played two matches in World Cup 2019 and won one of them. Their performance in the first match against Pakistan was spectacular. WI restricted Pakistan to a score of 105 runs and chased it in just 13.4 overs gaining a massive run rate. The second match they played was against Australia in which they failed to chase a total of 288 runs and lost the match by 15 runs. After that defeat, West Indies would also be looking to make a comeback and the match against South Africa would be the right opportunity for them.
In Conclusion, today’s match between West Indies and Australia is quite unpredictable which would make it a perfect match for the cricket lovers.
