South Africa and West Indies will collide in the 5th Warm-up Game at County Ground in Bristol before the start of World Cup’19. We will provide SA vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction, Preview and Probable Playing XI for the SA vs WI match.
South Africa made a thumping arrival in World Cup’19 defeating Sri Lanka comprehensively by 87 runs in first Warm-up game. Batting first, Hashim Amla and Faf Du Plessis played good knocks of 65 and 88 respectively and were supported by handy cameos from RV Dussen, Phehlukwayo and Morris to give a target of 339 to Sri Lanka.
Chasing the target, Sri Lanka suffered early scalps due to the brilliance of Lungi Ngidi while Andile Phehlukwayo bowled brilliantly in the middle taking four wicket-haul to restrict Lanka at 251 runs and provide an 87-run win to South Africa. They will hope to rectify any unsolved query in the squad and make final preparation before the start of World Cup 2019.
Team West Indies are the underdogs of World Cup 2019 due to explosive batsman available in the squad who can perform at their best on flat pitches of England. Windies failed to defeat Bangladesh thrice in recently concluded tri-series but with star players back in the hunt, They can be a team to beat in the competition.
Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis are one of the most destructive opening pair in world cricket followed by in-form Shai Hope and young talents Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran. They also have swashbuckling allrounders Andre Russell, Jason Holder and Brathwaite who have the power to go for big sixes or bowl fiery bouncers in the arsenal. Kemar Roach, Shannon Gabriel, Sheldon Cottrell, and Ashley Nurse will be the key in the bowling department. Windies will be eager to gain some early momentum before heading to World Cup’19 giving a tough challenge to the mighty South Africa team.
