SA vs WI: Weather Report Live Today, Pitch Report Of Centurion Stadium- 2nd T20I. Centurion will host the second SA vs WI T20I on March 26. The match starts at 5.30 pm IST which is 2 pm local time. The first T20I was a truncated game as it was affected by rain. West Indies won the match by three wickets and are leading the series 1-0.
Both teams have played 17 T20Is with South Africa winning 10 games and West Indies seven. Aiden Markram will lead South Africa while Rovman Powell will lead West Indies after Nicholas Pooran stepped down as the white-ball captain after the T20 World Cup. Several players from both teams will depart for India for IPL 2023 after the end of the series.
Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, David Miller, and Rilee Rossouw are back on the side for the T20I series. At home, the Proteas have named a full-strength squad for the three-match series. The Proteas are the number four-ranked T20I side while the Windies are ranked seventh currently.
Pooran, Jason Holder, Johson Charles, Powell, and a good set of T20I bowlers make West Indies an evenly matched team to their opponents. Among the bowlers, Sheldon Cottrel has been selected in the squad for the series. The likes of Akeal Hosein, Oned McCoy, Alzarri Joseph, and Odean Smith make a good all-round attack.

SA vs WI: Weather Report Live Today, Pitch Report Of Centurion Stadium- 2nd T20I
The first SA vs WI T20I was just an 11-overs-per-side game with rain interrupting play at the very start. However, the weather is expected to get better for Sunday’s game. The daytime will be warmer with increasing sunshine. The temperature in the afternoon will be around 26 degrees. The temperature in the evening will be around 16 degrees with clear conditions.
The venue has hosted 15 T20Is so far with eight matches won by the team batting first while six batting second. The average first innings score is close to 180. With power hitters on both sides, we can expect a high-scoring game if rain does not play spoilsport again. Unlike Saturday, there is a three percent chance of rain for Sunday’s game. The first ODI between both sides was washed out due to rain without not even the toss taking place.
