South Africa are a pretty experienced unit and have seen tough times like these. With three matches already done and dusted and Proteas struggling with injuries, the problems do not seem to end for them. Their premier pace bowler, Dale Steyn, has already been ruled out of the tournament due to a shoulder injury and with Ngidi too struggling with fitness, their bowling is now left to be merely a shadow of what they were like coming into the tournament.
Their batting, however, has been found struggling in all their matches. Twice they’ve succumbed to pressure while chasing whereas Indian bowlers got better of them in the third ODI whereas Barring Faf du Plessis, no batsmen has looked settled at the crease for them which is definitely a cause of concern for their management.
With three matches already gone but there are not many options for them to stay alive in the competition but to win their upcoming encounter.
West Indies played like themselves in the last match and they only have themselves to blame where they failed to draw two important points after being in control for the most part of the fixture. So far their quick bowlers have bowled like we used to see in the 70s and 80s era, their bowling in the middle overs has oozed mediocrity and lack of experience.
West Indies have played with typical Caribbean flair and have been fearless in their approach – which also backfired in their last match. While their batting has taken all the credit much largely due to the flamboyance and the fearless attitude, their bowlers have been unsung heroes for them in both the matches.
They first restricted Pakistan to a total which their batsmen would chase down 99 times out of 100 on any surface on the world and Considering the way they’re going in the tournament, it’s not going to be easy for any team to get past them
