SA vs WI 2nd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips
The second IT20 between South Africa and West Indies takes place on Sunday with the visitors 1-0 up after a three wicket win on Saturday. It was a reduced game, due to rain, with both teams given 11 overs to bat at Centurion Park. Read on as we preview the second game of the series which takes place at the same venue as the first match. This IT20 begins at 14:00 local time.
Although they are now under a new captain, South Africa are on a very poor run of results in this format. However, they will fancy their chances of winning a full 20-over game in this match.
West Indies showed their talent on Saturday but in some ways the shorter format played into their hands. They will need to produce another attacking display with the bat to win this IT20.

South Africa Team News & Playing 11
SA Team News
The 11-over game on Saturday meant that both teams did not really get an opportunity to see their selected XI in a standard T20 match. As a result, and in spite of the defeat, it would be a big surprise if there are changes to South Africa’s team which would see Kagiso Rabada left out of the side once more.
SA Key Players
- Quinton de Kock- the keeper-batter got a golden duck on Saturday but is experienced enough to not let that alter his approach in this game.
- David Miller- one of South Africa’s most impressive T20 players over the last decade, the middle-order batter top scored with 48 runs from 22 balls in the opening IT20.
- Anrich Nortje- the quick bowler got the wicket of former West Indies skipper Nicholas Pooran and had a brilliant economy rate of only 5.66 in the first match of the series.
SA Team Form
South Africa have now been beaten in their last three IT20s. They last lost 4+ IT20s in a row across 2020 and into 2021.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11
WI Team News
After getting over the winning line on Saturday, and the reduced overs meaning none of the bowlers or the batters had a huge workload, we expect West Indies to take to the field with an unchanged XI. This means no place for Obed McCoy or former skipper Jason Holder.
WI Key Players
- Brandon King- the right-handed opener was very attacking at the top of the order for West Indies in the opening game. He will be looking to build on his 23 from only eight balls - a strike-rate of 287.50.
- Rovman Powell- the captain lived up to his reputation as a hard-hitting finisher. He struck one four and five sixes in his 18 ball innings in the first IT20.
- Sheldon Cottrell- the 33 year old left-arm fast medium bowler has now taken 106 international wickets. He dismissed Rilee Rossouw and Heinrich Klaasen on Saturday.
WI Team Form
Although West Indies have struggled in this format over recent years they come into this game with two wins from their last three IT20s.
West Indies Predicted Playing 11
Brandon King, Kyle Mayers, Johnson Charles, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Rovman Powell (c), Alzarri Joseph, Romario Shepherd, Roston Chase, Odeon Smith, Akeal Hosein, Sheldon Cottrell

Who will win South Africa vs West Indies 2nd T20 Match?
Anrich Nortje showed just how talented a bowler he is on Saturday but still ended up on the losing side. If Quinton de Kock can deliver for South Africa then they look to have the stronger team in this game.
South Africa vs West Indies Prediction
Saturday's opening game of the series was shortened but still provided plenty of entertainment for the supporters at Centurion Park or watching across the globe. We are expecting another close game and would not be surprised to see the contest go the final over once more. West Indies have the potential to be a very good T20 side but often lack consistency as a team. For this reason, we expect South Africa to win this match and level the series at 1-1.
