West Indies vs South Africa 1st Test Prediction & Betting Tips

West Indies and South Africa meet in the first of two Tests at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in St Lucia. This is the first Test between the sides since January 2015 when South Africa won by 8 wickets in Cape Town and the first Test in the Caribbean between the sides since June 2010. Read on as we preview this game. The Test will get underway at 10:00 local time on June 10.

West Indies come into this Test unbeaten in their last two series and four Tests. After beating Bangladesh 2-0 earlier in the year they drew 0-0 at home against Sri Lanka. They will fancy their chances against South Africa who have lost their last 9 away Tests.

South Africa have had an unstable few years but seem to be coming out the other side under the leadership of Dean Elgar. They have real Test match openers and in bowlers Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada, genuine quality in the pace department.

Live streaming: Fans in India can stream the match on Sony LIV app and website.

WI vs SA Match Toss Prediction

We expect either captain to elect to bat first. The conditions will be unforgiving for the fielding side and the skippers will want their batsmen to post a big score first up.

WI vs SA Match Pitch Report

Three of the last four Tests at the venue have produced results with West Indies winning only one of those. As with most Carribean pitches nowadays, expect the batsmen to enjoy the surface.

Weather Report

Highs of 31 throughout the five days with more cloud forecast on the final day.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

Unbeaten in Test cricket this year, the West Indies team is growing in confidence with every game. 19 year old Jayden Seales has been preferred to Shannon Gabriel in the squad and may well win his first cap in this game.

WI Key Players

  • Kraigg Brathwaite - the skipper has led the side in their success this year and opens the batting. Made scores of 85 and 126 against Sri Lanka at home.
  • Jason Holder - the former captain has slotted back into the ranks with ease and continues to show why he is ranked as the world’s best all rounder by the ICC. He has 3 Test centuries and 8 five wicket hauls.
  • Rahkeem Cornwall - continues to draw attention for his shape but his bowling figures speak for themselves. He has 31 wickets from 7 Tests and has hit 2 half-centuries with the bat.

West Indies Predicted Playing 11

Kraigg Brathwaite (c) , Shai Hope, Nkrumah Bonner, Kyle Mayers, Jermaine Blackwood, Jason Holder, Joshua Da Silva (wk), Alzarri Joseph, Rahkeem Cornwall, Kemar Roach, Jayden Seales

WI vs RSA Dream11 Prediction

  • Wicket-keeper

    Shai Hope (8.5) will be our wicket-keeper. He has been out of the Test side recently but has been in fine form for West Indies in white ball cricket.

  • Batsmen

    Dean Elgar (9.5), Kraigg Brathwaite (9.5), Aiden Markram (9) and Rassie van der Dussen (8.5) are our batsmen. Brathwaite seemed to enjoy the additional responsibility of captaincy against Sri Lanka.

  • All-rounders

    Jason Holder (9.5) and Kyle Mayers (9) will be our all-rounders. Both are capable of winning the game with bat or ball in a session

  • Bowlers

    Kagiso Rabada (9.5), Kemar Roach (9), Anrich Nortje (9) and Rahkeem Cornwall (8.5) are our bowlers. All four are strike bowlers who can’t help but take wickets.

  • Captain/Vice-captain

    Jason Holder will be captain, Kagiso Rabada his deputy

WI vs SA Dream11 Team Prediction

  • Batsmen:Dean Elgar, Kraigg Brathwaite, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram

  • All Rounder:Jason Holder, Kyle Mayers

  • Wicket Keeper:Shai Hope

  • Bowler:Kemar Roach, Rahkeem Cornwall, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

South Africa Team News & Playing 11

SA Team News

After losing their last 9 away Tests, this series, under new captaincy, gives South Africa the chance to start again. Faf du Plessis has retired and as a result there is a gap to be filled in the middle order. We think Kyle Verreynne may well make his Test debut.

SA Key Players

  • Dean Elgar- the new captain has 13 Test centuries to his name and fits the bill of a gritty batsman at the top of the innings. His team will need him to bat long during the series.
  • Aiden Markram- the opener hit 4 centuries in his opening 10 Tests from late 2017 to early 2018. He has found the going a bit harder since then, scoring only 1 ton in the following 14, but that came in the last Test against Pakistan.
  • Kagiso Rabada- Still only 26 years old, Rabada has 202 Test wickets from 45 matches. His express pace and natural aggression will be respected and feared by the West Indies batsmen.

SA Team Form

Very poor away from home and only slightly better at home, South Africa have not given a good account of themselves in Tests for many years. 

South Africa Predicted Playing 11

Dean Elgar (c) , Aiden Markram, Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma, Kyle Verreynne, Quinton de Kock (wk), Wiaan Mulder, Beuran Hendricks, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje

West Indies vs South Africa 1st Test Top Team Bowlers

We expect Kemar Roach, Jason Holder and Rahkeem Cornwall to cause the South Africa batsmen some trouble. Holder has been one of the world’s best pace bowlers over the last few years.

For South Africa we have backed Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Keshav Maharaj. Rabada and Nortje come with the reputation and we expect them to live up to it.

🏆 West Indies vs South Africa Prediction

This should be an excellent Test Match with both teams coming into the game with something to prove. In spite of changes of leadership for both sides this year, they both have relatively settled sides. We are backing South Africa to end their miserable run of away Test defeats in this game.
