    Its always fun to see WI do well but hoping for a SA win tomorrow to keep Pakistan in the hunt for the Semi Final

    =====



    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 Monday.

    Overview

    South Africa v West Indies
    Hampshire Bowl, Southampton
    ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, Match 15
    Monday 10 June; 10:30am local, 09.30am GMT

    Dale Steyn ruled out due to injury, Lungi Ngidi unfit, an uncertain batting line-up and three losses on the trot- South Africa have had a tough start to their 2019 World Cup campaign. 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.

    With Ngidi still in doubt, Du Plessis might look to draft in Beuran Hendricks, who came in as a replacement for Steyn, to add some teeth and variety to the bowling attack. The Proteas desperately need a win to stay in contention for a spot in the semi-finals.

    The West Indies will look to rise up after their narrow defeat to Australia at Trent Bridge, a game they would have felt was under their control for most part of the day. While the aggressive opening burst from the fast bowlers in the first two matches reminded us of their glory days of old, failure to consolidate on the start and poor shot selection by the batsmen in the run-chase, hurt them dearly against Australia.

    However, having won their opening fixture and having pushed Australia close, they will be the happier of the two teams heading into this match.

    Key players

    Quinton de Kock (South Africa): Runs early on in the innings has been sadly lacking for South Africa so far this tournament, with the highest opening stand for the Proteas at this World Cup being just 49. The wicket-keeper batsman, currently ranked fourth in the in the MRF Tyres ICC ODI Rankings, will aim for a match-winning performance against a potent West Indies attack.

    Andre Russell (West Indies): Quick runs down the order and wicket-taking abilities with the ball - Russell is an integral part of this West Indies team. While he has been a big part of their success with the ball so far, the all-rounder, with his ball striking abilities, is capable of producing match-winning performances against any opposition on his day.

    Conditions:

    With even chances of rain, a few showers might be expected in the afternoon at The Hampshire Bowl. With cloud cover expected to remain for most part of the day, fast bowlers might once again play a decisive role on Monday.

    Squads:

    West Indies: Jason Holder (c), Fabian Allen, Darren Bravo, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Evin Lewis, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Oshane Thomas

    South Africa: Faf du Plessis (c), Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, JP Duminy, Dwaine Pretorius, Beuran Hendricks, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi

    • South Africa (W2) and West Indies (W2) have split the last four ODIs between them; West
    Indies winning their most recent fixture in June 2016 by 100 runs.
    • South Africa have claimed victory in four of their six matches against West Indies at the ICC
    Men’s Cricket World Cup, including their previous three encounters in succession.
    • South Africa and West Indies have never met before in ODI cricket at the Hampshire Bowl;
    both sides have won two and lost two of their respective four completed ODIs at the venue.
    • West Indies won a pair of ICC Champions Trophy matches at the Hampshire Bowl in 2004 (v
    Bangladesh and Pakistan) but have lost their two subsequent ODIs at the venue, both
    against England (2012, 2017).
    • South Africa have suffered four defeats in a row at the ICC Men’s Cricket World; including all
    three of their outings in the 2019 edition so far.
    • South Africa have never gone beyond the semi-final stage at the ICC Men’s Cricket World
    Cup; West Indies have won the competition on two separate occasions however (1975 &
    1979).
    • Shai Hope has reached 50 on 16 occasions in ODIs since the start of 2017, including a knock
    worth 68 last time out against Australia; twice as often as any other West Indies batsman in
    that time (Chris Gayle 8 times).
    • Chris Gayle’s (West Indies) run of six ODI half-centuries in succession came to an end in his
    last appearance (v Australia); only one man has ever put together a longer run (Pakistan’s
    Javed Miandad, nine).
    • Imran Tahir needs two wickets in this match to go above Makhaya Ntini (27) as South Africa’s
    third-highest ODI wicket-taker against West Indies; Shaun Pollock (44) and Jacques Kallis (42)
    sit at the top of that list.
    • Imran Tahir (South Africa) has bowled 180 balls so far at ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019,
    none have been struck for a six; he’s taken four wickets in his three appearance so far.

    South Africa vs West Indies | 15th Match, World Cup | Southampton | June 10, 2019 | Match Thread

    AB de Villiers would´ve come in handy today. From what I remember, he had made three centuries against the West Indies in all three world cup matches that he had played against them, in 2007, 2011 and 2015 respectively. Still though, the senior batsmen from this current South African batting line-up always have had a liking for the West Indies bowlers. I´ve a feeling that they´ll bounce back today.

    The Gayle Force might´ve some other ideas mind you. I think it´s him who stands between the two teams.

    Amla has always had the spine of a jelly, but he is technically finished as well. He is a spent force and South Africa should drop him after the World Cup even if he doesn’t retire.

    J. Malan is a far better player at the moment.

    He was involved in a car accident a few years ago and lost his pace due to injuries. He's now more of a line and length swing and seam bowler than the tearaway fast bowler when he debuted.

    I can't understand that why Amla isn't batting in middle order? He is struggling against movement of pace bowlers. He plays spin well. So he should have batted at no 4.

    Could be, but they haven’t had many successful white ball players in the past, especially not to Amla’s extent.

    He has the fourth most hundreds in ODIs, and is only three shy of Ponting.

    On these wickets SA are really missing guys like Morne, Olivier and even Philander. This is really sad for both SA cricket and international cricket. Not to mention Steyn.
    How can you compete with the best when you don’t have players of that calibre?

    Just imagine India without Bunrah, England without Archer and Woakes, Kiwis without Boult and Ferguson, Australia without Starc and Cummins...

    Good start by SA after Amla's wicket. Anything over 250 will be tricky because of the way WI play.

    275 and beyond will take the game away from WI.

    Just play cautiously for another 8 overs. Wickets in hand are key.

    I don't see how one shouldn't translate into the other. It makes absolutely no sense.

    Still.. all their bowlers are tall, fast and strong , something which was missing in the past 10 years. T20 has revived cricket in Caribbean

    Little bit of drizzle and here they come off. Worst WC, just ahead of 2007. 2011 was still the best till date. 2023 will be the best ever as its held in Asia and asian teams will be even stronger.

    Sadly I don't see this match being completed.

    Instead of having match after match at the same venues, you run less risk of running foul of the weather if you spread the venues out across the country.

    The forecast is clear at Old Trafford today...

    Neither do I. I don't even believe they are chokers either because they did win 1998 CT and numerous tri national tourneys.

    Just because they did not win a WC people call them so. Even ENG/ NZ have not won the WC but they escape that tag.
