West Indies will be playing without their t20 superstar Chris Gayle who played 2 magnificent innings in their last 2 matches and had a very good performance in the field. Thus he is given rest for this match. Otherwise no major injury or any sort of problems have been filed to the media and thus it can be said without a doubt that these two teams will play with their best capabilities.
However things become a little rough for West Indies as they haven’t been able to defeat South Africa in their last 5 matches. They had 1 draw and they lost the other 4. So even in these stats, it’s clear that South Africa is the favorites to win this match.
We predict that South Africa will this match.
