Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction for ICC Women's T20 WC Windies v South Africa
South Africa and Windies locked horns in a five-match T20I series in the Caribbean recently and both the teams would be quite aware of the conditions and what the opponents have to throw at them.
The series ended with the score line of 2-2, with one match being washed out. Although South Africa gave a tough fight, the West Indies were more dominant.
Now that some of the key players of South Africa have returned and the current form of West Indies has been patchy, it would certainly give the Proteas hope to clinch this encounter.
With Sri Lanka and Bangladesh lagging behind, it is essentially a clash between West Indies, South Africa and England for two spots as semi finalists from Group A. Both South Africa and West Indies have won one match each in the tournament till now and whoever wins this match would move a step closer to that semi-final berth.
South Africa have the best and the quickest new ball attack with Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail both being genuine wicket takers. Each of Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Dane van Niekerk and Marizanne Kappall is a capable batsman and good enough to take their side to victory all by themselves on a given day.
Hayley Matthews and Deandra Dottin make for a good opening pair but the way they were restricted to 106 against not a very strong Bangladesh bowling attack, it is reason enough for some worries in the West Indian camp.
Stafanie Taylor is also key component of their batting line up. With the ball, Shakera Selman and Shamilia Connell would assist Deandra Dottin. Dottin is coming on the back of dream figures of 5 for 5 against Bangladesh.
Let's have a look at the probable playing XIs of both teams.
Windies- Hayley Matthews, Deandra Dottin, Stafanie Taylor, Shemaine Campbelle, Natasha McLean, Britney Cooper, Kycia Knight, Anisa Mohammed, Afy Fletcher, Shakera Selman, Shamilia Connell
South Africa- Lizelle Lee, Laura Wolvaardt, Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp, Sune Luus, Chloe Tryon, Mignon du Preez, Shabnim Ismail, Masabata Klaas, Tumi Sekhukhune, Moseline Daniels
