West Indies defeated South Africa by 3 wickets in an 11-over game in the first T20I. On a belter of a track, South Africa posted a formidable total of 131 batting first. But it counted for little as the West Indies batters came in with all the guns blazing. They won the match with three balls to spare.

Most of the bowlers from either side have had a game to forget. The run rate in the first T20I was 12.34. The two sides will meet again in less than 24 hours at the same venue. While the Proteas will look to level the series, the Men in Maroon would want to seal the series.

Another fascinating contest is well on the cards.

Match Details

  • Location: SuperSport Park, Centurion.
  • Time: 2:00 pm (local), 5:30 pm (IST).

Key Players to Watch/Key Stats

South Africa:

  • Quinton de Kock was dismissed on the first ball in the last game. But he has scored 302 runs at an average of 43.14 and a strike rate of 133.03 in seven T20I innings against the West Indies. Expect him to come good this time around.
  • Rilee Rossouw is expected to bat at No. 3. He has accumulated 476 runs at a 39.66 average and strikes at 170 at that position in the T20Is. He has two half-centuries and as many centuries too.
  • Aiden Markram has flourished since he started batting at No. 4. Markram has made 893 runs at an average of 35.72 and struck at 140.40 at number 4 since 2022. He can also use himself as a matchup bowler against the West Indies’ southpaws.
  • David Miller has been consistent in this format for a while now. He played a 48-run knock at a strike rate of 218.18 in the last game. Miller hit four boundaries and three maximums.
  • Sisanda Magala is a utility player. In the first match, he made 18 runs off just five balls with the bat and took 3/21 in a high-scoring encounter. He will be vital again.

West Indies:

  • Johnson Charles has been in supreme form in the T20s this year. He has scored 336 runs at an average of 48 and a strike rate of 149.33 in 2023.
  • Nicholas Pooran looked in fine touch during a short stay yesterday. He is an experienced campaigner and can be backed to score big.
  • Rovman Powell was at his threatening best in the first game. He smashed 43 off mere 18 deliveries, which included one boundary and five maximums. Powell was also the man of the match for his match-winning knock.
  • Sheldon Cottrell can move the new ball in the powerplay. If there will be some assistance off the deck, he might scalp a few early wickets.
  • Alzarri Joseph has been in good form with the ball on this tour. He might trouble the Proteas batters with his bounce and pace again.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 17, South Africa 10, West Indies 7.
  • Sisanda Magala in 2023: 17 wickets, eco. 8.77, avg. 21, SR. 14.35.
  • Akeal Hosein has the best economy rate (7.23) among the West Indies bowlers in the T20Is since 2022 (minimum 15 overs).
