WI vs RSA Team Previews

West Indies

The West Indies impressed in the first match of the series despite not having several first-choice players available. For example, Andre Russell is still with the Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League. Now, this depleted team has the chance to wrap up a series win over South Africa.

Brandon King is captaining the team. Importantly, he has not let the temporary promotion negatively affect his primary role with the bat. King hit 79 in the series opener and was named player of the match. He will want to lead from the front, at the top of the order, again.

Matthew Forde and Gudakesh Motie were outstanding individually and collectively in the first match. Forde and Motie took three wickets each, taking full advantage of the conditions, which suited Forde's seam early before playing into spinner Motie's hands later.

West Indies Playing 11

Brandon King, Johnson Charles, Kyle Mayers, Roston Chase, Andre Fletcher, Fabian Allen, Romario Shepherd, Akeal Hosein, Gudakesh Motie, Shamar Joseph, Obed McCoy.

South Africa

South Africa, like the West Indies, don't have some of their first-choice players for this series. Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klaasen are with the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. They will want to level the series scoreline here and move into a series decider later this week.

Reeza Hendricks was superb with the bat in the first match. He hit 87 and will be key for the Proteas at the T20 World Cup, too. In the absence of Markram and Klaasen, South Africa need Rassie van der Dussen and Matthew Breetzke firing on cue in the middle order.

Ottniel Baartman and Andile Phehlukwayo were South Africa's best bowlers in the first T20I. Baartman and Phehlukwayo took three wickets each. Baartman impressed on international debut. Both seamers could be instrumental in this match, too.

South Africa Playing 11

Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks, Ryan Rickelton, Matthew Breetzke, Rassie van der Dussen, Wiaan Mulder, Andile Phehlukwayo, Bjorn Fortuin, Nqaba Peter, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi.

WI vs RSA Toss Prediction

Sabina Park in Kingston, Jamaica, will host this match as well. In the first T20I, South Africa won the toss, elected to field first - and lost the match. Their bad batting didn't do their good bowling justice.

The team to win the toss this time will likely elect to field first, too. Teams generally prefer chasing - not setting - a target in T20I cricket at this venue.

Pitch and Conditions

The West Indie's first-innings total of 175 was enough for them to win the match at this ground in the series opener. If the same pitch is used this time, conditions might be a bit slower and a first-innings score of 160-plus could be considered competitive.

Both teams could play two specialist spinners here. Rain is forecast in Kingston on matchday. If wet weather limits the fixture, this could suit the team batting second and potentially chasing an adjusted target.

WI vs RSA Betting Tips

The West Indies' batting and bowling was superior in the series opener. South Africa are struggling to find their feet on both fronts away from home. The Windies should beat the Proteas here again.
