A depleted South African side will meet a confident unit of Windies in the 15th match of ICC World Cup 2019 which will be played at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. This is the same venue where South Africa was beaten by India in their third match of the tournament.
Despite a loss at the hands of Australia by 15 runs, Windies are one composite unit who can bamboozle this struggling Proteas unit on any given day. They started their World Cup 2019 campaign by ripping apart Pakistan at Trent Bridge but went down against the reigning champions in a closely fought and a controversial scenario by 15 runs.
South Africa’s problems are really pinching them and a lapse here will mean that their hopes of entering into the semi-finals will witness an abrupt end. South Africa needs to win here to get themselves going.
Windies: Champions in 1975 and 1979.
South Africa: Semi-finalists in the 2015 edition.
