West Indies will take on South Africa in Match 50 of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on June 24. South Africa have remained unbeaten in the tournament so far and they have almost sealed their place in the semi-finals. On the other hand, West Indies have lost one of their two Super 8 games and will aim to see themselves in a safe place with a win over marauding Proteas.

The hosts succumbed to England by eight wickets in the first game and later came back aggressively against USA to register a nine-wicket win. The positive aspect of their win was their NRR jumped from negative to 1.814. South Africa need just one win to pretty much dictate the Group 2 outcome and the game between England and USA will become a virtual eliminator.

Pitch Report and Conditions

Sir Vivian Richards Stadium pitch will assist the batters as the ball will come onto the bat nicely at the start. The pacers might get some assistance with the wind and overcast conditions. Spinners have little purchase off the deck but can be crucial in the second half once the deck becomes slower as the game progresses. There is a minimal chance of rain with the forecast predicting 20 percent.

WI vs SA Probable Playing XI

West Indies (WI):

Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Roston Chase, Rovman Powell (c), Sherfane Rutherford, Andre Russell, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie, Obed McCoy

South Africa (SA):

Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Aiden Markram (c), David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Tristan Stubbs, Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Ottneil Baartman

Probable Best Performers of the match

Probable Best Batter: Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran will be well-versed with conditions in Antigua, having played plenty of cricket. The southpaw bats at the number three position and the nerves of facing the initial overs would be subdued and second-change bowlers might cater to his style. He batted at a strike rate of 225 against USA in Barbados and the Caribbean will carry the same momentum. 

Probable Best Bowler: Anrich Nortje

Anrich Nortje had a miserable outing in IPL 2024, conceding runs at a rate of more than 10 an over. But the pacer is the joint fourth-highest wicket-taker in the T20 World Cup with 11 scalps to his name. He has also picked a four-fer in the process and his average of 12.91 could not be overlooked. He could be a valuable asset for the Proteas against West Indies.
