SA vs WI, 2nd ODI Preview
After the first game of the series was washed out without a ball bowled on Thursday, South Africa and West Indies will try again at the same venue on Saturday. A win for either team will mean they can not lose the series with one more match to play. South Africa have some exciting white ball players to pick from but it could be a tough assignment taking on a strong West Indies team in this ODI. West Indies are under a new captain and have players who are naturally attacking. If their bowlers can find the right areas then they could be very competitive in this match.

SA vs WI 2nd ODI Probable Winners:
After the disappointment for players and supporters alike on Thursday, the forecast is far more encouraging for this game and we expect to see an entertaining contest. Hendricks is a powerful clean hitter at the top of the order for South Africa. Both teams are naturally aggressive with the bat but the conditions are likely to favour the bowlers. We expect South Africa’s pace attack to have the edge. Considering the team combination, South Africa is expected to win this match.
