West Indies

The West Indies might feel they should have sealed this series by now with South Africa seemingly unable to keep the scoreboard ticking but they have caved under the pressure.

They got off to a great start in their chase last time out, until losing a clutch of wickets to derail their efforts.

The West Indies bowlers have often pegged back South Africa but their finishers haven’t come through for them.

West Indies will need to get much more from star quartet of Andre Russell, Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo and skipper Kieron Pollard.

South Africa

The Proteas haven’t been able to maximize their scoring potential across a full 20 overs, even when Quinton de Kock bats deep

They have found a way to wedge Aiden Markram into the top order with Heinrich Klaasen making way.

Skipper Temba Bavuma has quickly learned a few lessons on how to best use his bowlers but the captain would like to get more runs on the board.

Kagiso Rabada came through at the death but South Africa still have reason for concern over the question of the final overs of the innings.

Verdict: West Indies 67/100

The Windies now need to find a response.
