Venue: Feroz Shah Kotla, Delhi
Jaques kallis is back in the squad and he wil be eager to show what has to offer in argubaly his last world cup before he hangs his boots. South African’s are the most inform team in ODI cricket at the moment and they have a very solid squad with combination of Youth and Experience in the team. Their batting lineup is very much up there with the best while they have the most inform fast bowler in the world today with Dyle Stayn. They always have been among the favourites to win the world cup every time they take the field but for some reason or the other they choke at the last moment may be just may be this is the year !
West Indies on the other hand are kind of a team which can surprise anybody with their flair and unpredictable style, although this world cup has been very much predictable so far and we might get our first surprise in this one as both of these teams always comes up with some belter of matches. Predictions: I can see South Africa winning this match with ease becaue West Indies dont have enough Unity and bowling attack to contain South Africa whether they bat or bowl first. So Im going with a SA win in this one.
