The international cricket is back in West Indies as South Africa get set for a much-awaited tour, scheduled to begin on June 10. Both the sides will play two Tests followed by an exciting 5-match T20I series. With a much superior head-to-head record (18 wins in 28 Tests), the Proteas would be raring to make a mark against the hosts under the leadership of newly-appointed skipper Dean Elgar. On the other hand, Kraigg Brathwaite-led Windies side are a force to reckon with at home and will certainly be up for the challenge. With some new names in both sides, the stage is set for a fiery start to the series.
