South Africa are set to take on West Indies in the 18th match of the World T20 Cup on October 26, 2021. Notably, both the sides didn’t have a good start to the tournament, having lost their opening games. While South Africa fell short in the batting department, the defending champions were bowled out for 55, marking a shameful defeat. Heading to their second games, both South Africa and West Indies will aim to make a comeback when they lock horns on Tuesday.
The Proteas seemed to struggle a bit on the batting end and will hope to resolve their batting woes. Wicketkeeper batter Quinton de Kock and Aiden Markram are the top batting picks from the side, with the latter being a dependable captain choice. The South African side will heavily depend on their bowling to make a comeback in their upcoming game with Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje being the key bowlers, alongside Tabraiz Shamsi.
The defending champions had a forgetful start to the tournament having being outplayed by England in their opening game. The Kieron Pollard-led side will aim to make the most of their upcoming game with T20 specialists like Andre Russell and Evin Lewis in their side. Akeal Hossein looked impressive in the last game and should be watched out for in the next game. Besides, Ravi Rampaul and Obed McCoy can fetch some points from the bowling department.
