West indies vs south africa 2nd odi johannesburg overview 371 views

In what turned out to be a rain-marred first ODI played at Durban, the hosts, South Africa beat a spirited side of the West Indies by 61 series Duckworth Lewis method via (D / L). Visitors besoincertainement certainly give a better account of themselves in the second game to turn the tables and overcome formidable opponents, South Africa.

Team West Indies

Despite facing a superior opponent on paper, West Indies refused to meekly cow down and that should gladden the hearts of the training team. Taylor set up an inspired bowling spell of swing and Chris Gayle undermined the pacers in South Africa during his brief stay at the crease, but the individual brilliance sparks were not enough for them to win a game against the south African team well oiled.

First, their batsmen will have to choose wide with Tahir. Play Wanderers can help, because the track is not renowned for offering backing to spinner’s bowlers. West Indies also need to have a serious looking to chase the winning setup at their strong bowling line-up as per its good. Only Taylor looked like a wicket taking threat in the first game. Carlos Brathwaite, the versatile bowling Barbados can bowl at a brisk pace. He was in good shape too snaring nine wickets at an impressive average of 12.56 during the tour of West Indies 'A' Bangladesh and Sri Lanka last year. Among the reserves, there are also Sheldon Cottrell, left arm seamer for which they can fall back on.

Team South Africa

In the first game, South Africa is a smart recovery after Jerome Taylor he rears up and found enough movement in the air to dismiss as Rilee Rossouw and Faf du Plessis. He was once again the duo of Hashim Amla and AB de Villiers, who came to the aid of their own. While defending a small target 226 rain, bowlers of South Africa and then took wickets at regular intervals to emerge victorious.

For the second ODI, South Africa will seek once again to Imran Tahir to wreak havoc. Imran Tahir, with its deadly mistaken and a nasty dip, tended to disturb the West Indies in the recent past. In the game of the World Cup played in Delhi in 2011, he ripped through the top order Windies with figures of 4 to 41. In the first ODI played in Durban, too, it was clear that the drummers of visitors are trying to play wide with Imran Tahir and he eventually finished with three wickets. Of course, South Africa also has the formidable troika pace of Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander and Morne Morkel to pose problems on their own.

On the front batting think tank in South Africa would be happy with ultra-powerful knock David Miller 70. However, the generally reliable dridi fought for the course and this should be a concern for hosts. After compiling 464 runs at 92.8 in the tri-series held in Zimbabwe in 2014, it has 172 grouped in eight games at an average of 21.5 modest. South Africa must dridi return to form, because they depend Amla and de Villiers down the batting line-up all the time.

Crick Fighter Quotes:

First 10 overs were not easy. You must give much credit to Hashim Amla and the guy who hit around him. I'm a little embarrassed to get the man of the Match according to AB de Villiers.

We thought things were in our favor at this stage once the game was shortened due to rain. We went down for a good start, but lost ground in the middle, according to  Jason Holder.
