SA vs WI Key Players
Pooran’s form has been a concern and now he comes in as a player after stepping down from captaincy. He is a part of a West Indies line-up which is full of firepower as they bat super deep, allowing Pooran o play the way he is known to play, with a lot more freedom around him.
After some fitness struggles Sisanda Magala has made himself heard. He now looks a lot tougher to leave out as he consistently picks up wickets, and looks very promising, which has also allowed him to earn a central contract.
SA vs WI Match Tips
Both South Africa and West Indies can be very dangerous on their day. West Indies though look very strong with a deep line-up, and can spring a surprise against the home side.
