South Africa vs West Indies Predictions


South Africa began their campaign with a tight defeat to Australia, while the West Indies were horribly thrashed by England. I’m backing the men in green to get their opening win of the group stage.

  • South Africa have won 5 of their last 6 matches.
  • South Africa have won 3 of their last 5 matches against the West Indies.
  • South Africa’s Aiden Markram has scored 40 and 48 runs in 2 of his last 3 matches.
  • West Indies have lost their last 5 T20 matches.
  • West Indies’ Chris Gayle is the highest run scorer in West Indies T20 history. 

Head to Head


South Africa have won three of the last five encounters between the sides. The last victory was by 25 runs as the men in green clinched a bilateral T20 series earlier this year.

South Africa Form


South Africa came into the tournament in good form, having won four matches in a row. They however produced a substandard performance against Australia.

Batting first, the innings never got going at all. Struggling for fluency throughout, they managed a paltry 118-9 in their 20 overs. Aiden Markram with 40 runs was the chief contributor before 19 runs from Kagiso Rabada ensured they would limp past the 100 run mark.

A fighting effort with the ball and in the field saw them take the match to the wire. Anrich Nortje with 2-21 was superb, but it ultimately wasn’t enough as Australia got over the line by five wickets with two balls to spare.

South Africa Team News & Injuries


The Proteas might look to strengthen their batting department in this game. The inclusion of a third spinner in Bjorn Fortuin can also not be ruled out.

West Indies Form


West Indies came into this tournament in terrible form. They lost their last four matches, and were duly thrashed by England. 

In a horror batting display, Chris Gayle scored 13 runs and was the sole batsman to reach double figures. They were skittled for a scarcely believable 55 runs in 14.2 overs. 

The Windies never stood a chance defending that score. They managed to pick up four wickets with Akeal Hosein taking 2-24 before they predictably succumbed to a six wicket defeat with more than half the innings to spare.

West Indies Team News & Injuries 


With no injuries reported out of the camp, they might see the last match as an aberration and stick with the same starting lineup. Minimal changes, if any are expected.
