wi vs rsa Match Prediction & Analysis

Host West Indies and South Africa will battle it out in the third game of the T20I series played at National Cricket Stadium in St Georges, Grenada on Tuesday.

West Indies struggled to find momentum in their innings and fell 16-runs short of the target. The hosts might make one or two changes to their playing XI for this game.

Teams Preview

West Indies Preview

Captain Kieron Pollard will be hoping that side can bring their best cricket to the fore in the third game of the series.

In the 2nd T20I, West Indies won the toss and opted to bowl first. Left-arm medium pacer Obed McCoy (3 for 25) and Kevin Sinclair (2 for 23) delivered splendid performances to restrict South Africa to a modest total of 166 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

Chasing 167 runs for victory, openers Evin Lewis and Andre Fletcher got the side off to a brisk start and added 30 runs in the first three overs. Anrich Nortje dismissed Lewis in the third over to see West Indies lose their first wicket. Pacer Kagiso Rabada bowled well and executed a perfect plan to get rid of dangerous Chris Gayle, who perished after scoring just eight runs.

The middle-order trio of Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell lacked patience and gave their wickets away against the likes of George Linde and Tabraiz Shamsi.

For West Indies, Andre Fletcher continued his excellent form in this game as well. The right-hander was the top-scorer for the side with 35 runs with the help of two fours and one six.

Tail-ender Fabian Allen smashed five sixes at the back end of the innings and scored a valiant 34 runs off 12 balls. Jason Holder also chipped in with 20 runs off 20 balls.

West Indies Predicted Playing XI:

Evin Lewis, Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Kieron Pollard (c), Andre Russell, Jason Holder, Dwayne Bravo, Fabian Allen, Obed McCoy, Kevin Sinclair
