South Africa and West Indies are going to face each other for the 2nd ODI tomorrow.
Buffalo Park in East London is going to host this game once again between these two teams.
Unfortunately, the 1st ODI between these two sides had to be abandoned without a ball being bowled as the rain Gods played a spoilsport.
Therefore, both teams will be hoping that rain doesn’t come tomorrow so that a proper 50-over game can take place.
Moreover, both these teams host a multitude of star players who have the ability to win games for their teams from any position.
But, the visitors have already lost the Test series against the Proteas by 2-0 and will look to make a comeback by winning this series 2-0 against South Africa.
Meanwhile, the hosts will look to beat the Windies 2-0 yet again in this ODI series.
Thus, this game is very important as it will determine which of these two sides takes the lead in this series.
