The toss winner will choose to bat first as the pitch gets slower in the later stages of the game.

WI vs SA Pitch Report

We saw both the sides struggling with the batting as in both the innings, only 3 players were able to reach double digit scores. Fast bowlers got good assistance as the Proteas pacers took all wickets in the first innings but then the pitch started getting slower and spinner Motie picked 3 wickets. We expect the same behaviour from the pitch in the 2nd game. The average innings score will be around 170.

Jamaica Weather Report

The weather report predicts cloudy day in Jamaica on Saturday. There is a slight chance of rain and the temperature will hover around 31-33°C.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

With a clinical win in the 1st match, we do not expect any changes from the West Indies playing 11. There are no reports of any injuries yet.

WI Key Players

  • Brandon King – The West Indies skipper looked in confident form in the first game and coming at the top order, he set the platform with his 79 runs off 45 deliveries. He will be a key batter in such form.
  • Roston Chase – Roston Chase is making his name up in the list of top all-rounders in the West Indies. In the first match, he remained not-out at 32 which was a crucial innings to put runs on the board and then finished with 1/12 figures in the bowling.
  • Kyle Mayers – Kyle Mayers has the ability to go big in this format and he did the same in the first match where he smashed 3 sixes and scored important 34 runs. Mayers also comes as a handy medium pacer as well.
  • Gudakesh Motie – Gudakesh Motie did his tricks with the spin attack and finished with 3/25 in 4 overs which included the wicket of SA skipper Rassie van der Dussen. We expect more turn from the pitch in the second game and his role will be important again.

WI Team Form

West Indies won the 1st match so the squad will feel confident. Bowlers are doing a good job but batters need to settle themselves on the crease for more time before going for big shots.

West Indies Predicted Playing 11

Johnson Charles, Kyle Mayers, Brandon King (c), Andre Fletcher (wk), Roston Chase, Fabian Allen, Akeal Hosein, Gudakesh Motie, Obed McCoy, Matthew Forde, Shamar Joseph

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

After seeing the help for spinners in the first match, we anticipate that South Africa will bring in Tabraiz Shamsi to replace Wiaan Mulder who could not contribute much in the first game.

SA Key Players

  • Reeza Hendricks – We backed Hendricks to be the top batter and he scored 87 off 51 deliveries in the first match. He looked in good form and we back him again to score big in the 2nd match.
  • Rassie van der Dussen – Rassie started well but could not score much in the first match. He has more than 1000 runs and an average of 34 in the T20Is and we back him to play a good knock in the 2nd match.
  • Ottniel Baartman – Ottniel Baartman gained attention after his performance in the SA20 2024 where he finished with 18 wickets in 8 matches. He gained a spot in the T20 World Cup squad as well. In the first match against WI he picked 3 wickets and we expect more wickets from him in the upcoming game.
  • Gerald Coetzee – Coetzee finished with 1/30 in the first match and this guy pacer looks promising. He is back to join his national team after a good season in IPL where he took 13 wickets in 10 matches.

SA Team Form

South Africa has lost their last 4 T20Is and they need to level up their game against the confident West Indies.

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

Quinton de Kock (wk), Reeza Hendricks, Ryan Rickelton, Rassie van der Dussen (c), Matthew Breetzke, Tabraiz Shamsi, Andile Phehlukwayo, Gerald Coetzee, Bjorn Fortuin, Ottniel Baartman, Lungi Ngidi

South Africa started off as the favourites but the batting line-up failed miserably and on the other hand, West Indies displayed a good bowling attack with both pace and spin and batted decently to put 175 on the board.
