SA vs WI Cricket Betting Tips and Tricks, West Indies tour of South Africa 2nd T20I Match Preview:

West Indies are leading the series 1-0 after a thrilling 3-wicket win in the first T20I. The start was delayed due to rain, which reduced it to an 11-over contest. Having opted to bowl first, the visitors had a strong start to the game as South Africa kept losing wickets in search of quick runs.

At one stage, it looked like they would end with a below-par total but David Miller got into the act. He found a partner in Magala. The duo added 47 off just 12 deliveries and as a result, South Africa ended up with a good score of 131.

West Indies got to an excellent start to their chase as their top three were smacking boundaries and sixes from ball 1. South Africa chipped away with a few quick wickets but the big hits just kept coming from everyone that followed. And in the end, it was their skipper Rovman Powell who batted right till the end to see his team across the line with a blistering knock of 43* of just 18 balls.

For South Africa, Sisanda Magala was the standout bowler who picked up 3 wickets in his 2-over spell. The home team will look to bounce back in the 2nd game and level the series. On the other hand, the Windies’ side would look to seal the series 2-0.

Anrich Nortje: The South African pace bowler is back in the SA squad after missing the ODI series due to injury. His express pace and bounce make it difficult for any batter.
