After a chastening first week and a half at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019, South Africa will be eyeing their first win as they take on West Indies at the Hampshire Bowl, Southampton on 10th June 2019.
South Africa will be looking for a comeback after a poor start of the tournament with three back to back losses. The fast bowlers' performance in the 6-wicket loss to India must be heartening for the team management, but it's the batsmen who need to step-up against an aggressive West Indies pace attack on Monday.
West Indies have played with typical Caribbean flair and have been fearless in their approach - which also backfired in their last match. The likes of Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis can be devastating at the top and with Andre Russell available to bat at number seven, they bat as deep as any side in the tournament, barring the hosts.
