South Africa are looking for its first T20I series win since March 2019. Their last T20I series win was against Sri Lanka and since then they have lost against teams like England, Pakistan, and Australia while managing to draw a T20I series against India. Much like the Sri Lankan team, the South African team is going through a transitional phase. The retirement of AB De Villiers, JP Duminy and the Morkel brothers have put them on the back foot a bit.

Meanwhile, Faf Du Plessis is not a part of the side for the series which has been a big loss for the side. However, despite his absence, the side has shown courage and determination and has won two games to keep the team in search of a T20I series win. Meanwhile, in this article, we take a look at South Africa’s predicted playing XI for the decider against West Indies on Saturday.

De Kock is the highest-run getter for his side so far. He has scored 195 runs for his sie at an average of nearly 50. He has also hit two fifties with the latest one coming in the fourth game in a losing cause. He would ideally like to score another fifty-plus score leading his team to a series win.
