The 5 match T20I series is tied. West Indies won the first match. They put out a statement of how this new team is going to play with all the depth it has. South Africa out did them in the nest 2 matches. West Indies’ approach did not work in the 2nd and 3rd match. The openers were in flow but middle overs cost them the games. Hetmyer, Gayle, Pooran have not come up yet. South Africa won 2 matches on the trot by defending 160 odd runs in both games. De Cock, Tabraiz Shamsi, George Linde and Anrich Nortje were the main reason behind their 2 wins.
West Indies came back in the previous T20i. It was a do or die game for the Caribbeans. Keiron Pollard proved why he is rated so high in this format. He went from 7(11) to 51(25). Rabada and Ngidi got a lot of beating. Loose captaincy by Temba Bavuma. He did not finish KG’s four overs. Shamsi gave just 13 runs in his four overs, Ngidi went for 48. Dwayne Bravo picked four wickets to clench this victory.
The template has been same in all the matches. WIn toss and bowl first. Only one out of four times this worked. A little turn has been there throughout the series. West Indies are known for their six hitting abilities. But, they have suffered against Shamsi and Linde.
