Match Preview

South Africa and West Indies are going to battle it out in the 2nd T20I at Centurion once again tomorrow.

Additionally, the first T20I is running delayed because of a wet outfield at the same venue today with the toss yet to take place.

Looking at both teams, then they are evenly matched in T20Is and will look to get a game of cricket today as well as tomorrow.

South Africa has done well so far in both the Test and ODI series against the Windies. While they won the Test series fair and square, the ODI series remained a mixed bag.

On the other hand, West Indies would like to improve upon their performance and win this T20I series so as to get some good standing.

Therefore, we can expect a good game of cricket today as well as tomorrow between these two sides.
