Two-time World Cup winners West Indies impressed with a rout of Pakistan in their opening match, but then let Australia off the hook as the holders beat them by 15 runs. The Windies had Australia in trouble, but some wayward bowling allowed Nathan Coulter-Nile to score 92 from 60 balls before Mitchell Starc’s five-wicket haul clinched the win at Trent Bridge.
The West Indies will be looking to get back into winning ways when they face South Africa in Southampton on Monday. The Proteas haven’t got off to the best of starts, losing their first three matches. And a growing injury list isn’t helping their cause as well.

Well, where to start. South Africa come into this one in some considerable disarray. Dale Steyn has gone home to be replaced by Beuran Hendricks, while Lungi Ngidi remains troubled by a hamstring problem. Hashim Amla re-entered the fold for the Proteas’ defeat against India after missing the loss to Bangladesh through concussion, but he fell cheaply once again.
And then, there is the ghost hanging over the South Africans – the news emerging that AB de Villiers had offered to come out of retirement for the World Cup. Whatever your thoughts on the rights and wrongs, it has certainly disrupted the South African preparation for what is a must-win game.
For Jason Holder’s West Indies side, the main issue appears to surround the fitness of Andre Russell. He limped his way through Thursday’s defeat against Australia, though this is nothing new. It is an old problem that Russell has managed for some time. One suspects his presence – or absence – from this West Indian side will come down to what he feels his knee can take.
What are the odds?
The state South Africa find themselves in – only Ottis Gibson’s side and Afghanistan have lost all three of their games – means this feels like a straightforward win for the West Indians. However, Holder’s side’s unpredictability and that well-known South African grit and determination in an encounter they cannot afford to lose means that it could end up as a tight contest, with either team capable of coming out on top.
Indeed, Sporting Index can’t split them – you can buy either side at five, with a point awarded per run won by or 10pts per wicket won by.
