After three consecutive defeats, South Africa will eye their first win of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 when they face West Indies at the Hampshire Bowl on Monday. After a below par show so far, the Proteas desperately need a win to stay in contention for a spot in the semi-finals.
West Indies on the other hand looked slightly better after a win and a loss from their two games. The Jason Holder-led Carribean side kicked-off their campaign on a convincing note with an impressive seven wicket win over Pakistan before suffering a narrow 15 loss to Australia.
The Proteas lost their all three encounters against England, Bangladesh and India. The pacer’s performance in their six wicket loss to India must be heartening for skipper Faf du Plessis and the team management, but it’s the batsmen who need to step-up against a good looking West Indies pace attack.
