RSA vs WI Betting Tips

  • Quinton de Kock only plays in one way, looking to hit big boundaries from the first ball. He has an excellent record in this format and he is our tip for South Africa’s highest run scorer in this game. Lungi Ngidi is a very consistent bowler across all-formats and the pace bowler is our pick for South Africa’s top wicket taker on Saturday.
  • Shai Hope has an excellent ODI record and we do not expect the responsibility of captaining the side to affect him. He is a strong choice for West Indies’ highest run scorer in this ODI. Jason Holder will enjoy the bowler-friendly conditions and we expect him to be West Indies’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • With a pitch likely to assist the pace bowlers, we recommend backing Lungi Ngidi to take over 1.5 wickets in this match.

South Africa are favorites to win

SA vs WI 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After the first game of the series was washed out without a ball bowled on Thursday, South Africa and West Indies will try again at the same venue on Saturday. A win for either team will mean they can not lose the series with one more match to play. Read on as we preview the second ODI. This game begins at Buffalo Park, East London at 13:00 local time.

South Africa have some exciting white ball players to pick from but it could be a tough assignment taking on a strong West Indies team in this ODI.

West Indies are under a new captain and have players who are naturally attacking. If their bowlers can find the right areas then they could be very competitive in this match.

SA vs WI Match Toss Prediction

There will be a bit of unknown about the pitch so we expect both skippers to want to field first and see how the surface responds.

SA vs WI, Buffalo Park Pitch Report

After the wet weather on Thursday and the humidity levels, we expect plenty of moisture in the pitch. Any score over 300 will be a good effort from the batters.

East London Weather Report

Similar to on Thursday, the humidity levels are forecast to be high again on Saturday. But no rain is expected to fall this time and the game should be able to be played.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

Although there was no toss on Thursday and the teams were never announced, we expect both sides to stick with the same XI that they were going to select. Wihan Mulder and Keshav Maharaj have both been ruled out of the series with injuries.

SA Key Players

  • Quinton de Kock- the former skipper keeps his batting simple and has brilliant hand-eye coordination. He will take the attack to West Indies’ batters from the first ball of his innings in this game.
  • Rassie van der Dussen- although the middle-order batter does not have a particularly high strike-rate, he is one of the most reliable batters in this format of the game.
  • Lungi Ngidi- with Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada resting for the entire series, there will be added responsibility on Ngidi who very rarely lets his country down.

SA Team Form

South Africa have been inconsistent in this format but did win back to back games against England in the home series earlier this year.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

It will be interesting to see the attitude and intensity of West Indies under their new captain in this game. Although they have some very experienced players in the squad, they are without Alzarri Joseph who has been their best bowler over the last 18 months.

WI Key Players

  • Shai Hope- batting at the top of the order, the skipper will want to lead from the front in his 100th ODI innings. He has scored 13 hundreds in this format so far in his career.
  • Romario Shepherd- the conditions in East London could be very helpful for the bowling all-rounder. He should get movement off the pitch and a quick-fire innings with the bat could also be crucial.
  • Jason Holder- the former captain continues to be a very consistent bowler across all formats. His height always generates additional bounce and the overhead conditions will also assist him.

WI Team Form

West Indies have improved in Test cricket over the last 18 months but their ODI form has been poor for many years now.

West Indies Predicted Playing 11

Shai Hope (c), Shamarh Brooks, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Rovman Powell, Roston Chase, Kyle Mayers, Romario Shepherd, Jason Holder, Akeal Hosein, Yannic Cariah, Shannon Gabriel

Who will win South Africa vs West Indies 2nd ODI Match?

West Indies have some very good white ball players but they have failed to really push the best teams over recent years. South Africa’s batting still looks to be very strong ahead of this match.

SA vs WI Top Team Batsmen

For South Africa, Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks and Rassie van der Dussen are our batting tips. de Kock has scored 23 international centuries and averages 45.39 in this format. Hendricks is a powerful clean hitter at the top of the order for South Africa.

We are backing Shai Hope, Roston Chase and Rovman Powell as our batting selections for West Indies. Chase is a strong batter and has a top score of 94 in this format but has often batted down the order. Powell’s top score in ODIs is 107.

SA vs WI Top Team Bowlers

We recommend Gerald Coetzee, Lungi Ngidi and Andile Phehlukwayo as our bowling tips for South Africa. The conditions will be helpful for Phehlukwayo who will look to get movement off the pitch. Coetzee bowls with pace and will also get assistance from the wicket and overhead conditions.

For West Indies, Akeal Hosein, Jason Holder and Shannon Gabriel are our bowling choices for West Indies. Hosein does not need a spinning wicket to assist his very accurate left-arm orthodox bowling. Holder has 359 international wickets in his career so far.

🏆 South Africa vs West Indies Prediction

After the disappointment for players and supporters alike on Thursday, the forecast is far more encouraging for this game and we expect to see an entertaining contest. Both teams are naturally aggressive with the bat but the conditions are likely to favour the bowlers. We expect South Africa’s pace attack to have the edge and are backing South Africa to get the win.
