The second T20I between West Indies and South Africa is set to take place at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada on Sunday.
West Indies were rampant in the first T20I as they chased down a par score with relative ease. Although they didn’t seem to have fielded their strongest side, the Windies’ depth and balance came through. However, they will need their bowlers to come up with a better performance with the pitch being a belter as they seek another win in Grenada.
The South Africans were lackluster in the previous T20I with the bowling being quite disappointing. Although their batsmen did show glimpses of what they are capable of, they could only end up with a par score, not enough to keep them in the game. All eyes will be on in-form keeper Quinton de Kock, who will be key to the South Africans’ fortunes. All in all, a cracking game of cricket beckons at the National Stadium with both sides eyeing a win on Sunday.
