Preview

South Africa

South Africa Cricket team must have to win this twenty20 match to alive the three match series. If Proteas want to win here at Johannesburg they need to change few things. At the top of batting order they need a quick fire start to make pressure on Caribbean side. South African bowlers need to stop destructive opener Chris Gayle in the 2nd t20 match. Chris Gayle made 77 in 31 balls and he became the first batsman to score fastest 50 for West Indies in t20 cricket.

If Gayle plays again the like inning of Cape Town twenty20 there will be no chance for Proteas team to win the match. Imran Tahir could be the bowler for Africa team who can put pressure on destructive opening West Indies pair Gayle and Smith.

West Indies

West Indies needs to work on their middle order batting as Caribbean middle order was totally collapsed after such a great inning by Gayle at the front. The first t20 match shouldn’t be ended before 2-3 overs of inning. But middle order failure could cause the game if Gayle didn’t play like that inning and Samuels handy contribution.

West Indies bowlers need to be more effective to restrict opposition. Holder, Sammy, Cottrell and Russell should bowl tight especially Andre Russell as he was too expensive in last match.
