The 20th match of the ICC Women's T20 World Cup 2020 between West Indies and South Africa will be played at the Sydney Showground Stadium in Sydney.
South Africa have already qualified for the semi-finals. A victory against West Indies would take them to the top of group B and set up their semi-final against Australia.
The team began the tournament with a six-wicket victory over England which really fuelled their campaign. Next was a massive 113-run victory against Thailand. The Proteas beat Pakistan in their next encounter to win by 17 runs.
They will be taking on West Indies who have been struggling in the tournament. The team won their first game against Thailand by 7 wickets but lost their next match against Pakistan by a big margin of 8 wickets.
Windies suffered another big 46-run loss against England in their last match. They are already out of the semi-final contention and would want to end their campaign with a win.
Hayley Matthews, Lee-Ann Kirby, Stafanie Taylor, Deandra Dottin and Shemaine Campbelle will have the responsibility of putting the runs on the board for the Windies. Taylor has been the top wicket-taker for the team.
South Africa will continue to bank on Mignon du Preez, Marizanne Kapp, Dane van Niekerk and Lizelle Lee.
