South Africa and West Indies cricket teams will be up against each other on 27th February in the 19th match of ICC world cup 2015 at Sydney Cricket Ground. This is going to be exciting clash in pool B game tomorrow at Sydney as both teams will be eager for a win in world cup progression.
West Indies can give a strong challenge to Proteas team which was threatened in previous match against India. Chris Gayle returning to form will boost Caribbean team morale to score run against Dale Steyn and Morne Morkel. Gayle scored first double ton of cricket world cup in previous match against Zimbabwe and showed some destructive shoots that he is used to play.
Chris Gayle took 105 balls to complete his 22nd century but for reaching at double hundred he just took 33 balls. In that inning Gayle hit glorious 16 sixes and 10 fours. So Gayle will be a huge factor for West Indies to put big runs on scoreboard. Along with Gayle, Marlon Samuels will be crucial in Caribbean batting line up as he also hit century against Zimbabwe.
The Caribbean batting will also be depending on middle order batsmen Lendl Simmons, Darren Sammy and Andre Russell. If these players score runs tomorrow, West Indies can beat South Africa team. But but but… it is not going to be easy for Caribbean batsmen to score the runs against South African strong bowling attack.
After India’s destructive hitting against Steyn, Morkel, Tahir and Parnell these bowlers will be looking to do some serious damage against West Indies. South Africa was totally out of the play against Indian team in previous match. Proteas bowling failed to restrict Indian batting and spent 307 runs at MCG.
Not only bowling but batting was also failed which is their strong component in the tournament. Ab de Villiers, Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, Faf Du Plessis and JP Duminy were totally flopped against team India and whole team got all out on 177 runs which caused South Africa biggest loss of 130 runs.
It was completely an off day for Proteas but now South Africa team will be desperate to get back on track and get on winning momentum again. It will be an interesting battle, let’s see who’ll win at SCG.
Though South Africa lost previous game but still they are favorites to win against West Indies. The reason is West Indies team is always been an un-predictable team, they don’t perform on regular basis. But anything can happen if Chris Gayle storm is on role. Let’s see whose storm will be there in tomorrow’s game Dale Steyn or Chris Gayle.
As per Sports Mirchi prediction, South Africa has 60 percent chances to win the game. What do you say, who will win?
