South Africa and West Indies will compete in the 18th match of the ongoing T20 World Cup in Dubai on Tuesday, October 26.
West Indies made a shocking start against England as they were bundled out for just 55 and lost the match by 6 wickets. Now, they will face an attack led by fast bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje. South Africa too did not bat well in their opening game against Australia, but they dragged the contest to the last over where Marcus Stoinis and Matthew Wade won the contest for the Aussies.
Played: 15 | SA won: 09 | WI won: 06 | No result: 0
The pitch in Dubai is good for batting as the ball comes nicely onto the bat. However, fast bowlers enjoy bowling on this track because of the swing and bounce they get in the powerplay overs. The team winning the toss should bat first.
