South Africa are hosting the 2nd T20I of the series against West Indies at SuperSport Park in Centurion on 26th March 2023. Visitors registered a victory in the rain-affected first game, which is why the upcoming game will be important for South Africa if they are eying to save the series.
Both teams have power-packed batting lineups, showing their hitting capacity in the series' first game. It will be interesting to see how both teams’ bowling units perform in the 2nd game to change the dimensions. Likes of Anrich Nortje and Sheldon Cottrell have huge responsibilities from their respective sides to deliver with the ball.
Africa’s openers are struggling to score runs, which is a big concern. Quinton de Kock is yet to shine with the bat in the last few innings. West Indies' opening pair on the other side needs to construct an inning after giving a good start in the game.
South African unit failed to restrict the target in the first match of the series, which cost them a game by 3 wickets in the last over. Now to get back on a winning track, they will try to overcome their mistakes in the 2nd match against West Indies.
While batting first against West Indies, South Africa lost early wickets in the powerplay of an 11-over match. After losing the top 4 batters till the 6th over, David Miller handled the team's middle order single-handedly to put up a fiery knock of 48 runs from 22 balls. Sisanda Magala attacked the last over of the 1st innings to score 18 runs from 5 balls. With these efforts, the hosts scored 131 runs in 11 overs.
Defending 132 runs in 11 overs against an attacking batting unit of West Indies was difficult for African bowlers. Sisanda Magala, this time with the ball, bowled a brilliant spell of 3 wickets for 21 runs in his 2 overs but didn’t get support from other bowlers to put pressure on opponents. As a result, West Indies chased down the target in the last over by sparing 3 wickets.
South Africa’s top-order batting unit needs to deliver better in the 2nd match if they want to save the series. The overall squad looks balanced, with good depth in the batting and bowling unit. They must only utilize the team’s batting strength in the upcoming matches.

A super display of power-hitting from the Caribbean side helped them to register a win in the rain-affected T20I. To continue the winning momentum and claim a T20I series, West Indies look forward to pressuring the hosts in the 2nd game at Centurian on 26th March 2023.
After winning the toss in the first T20I, Rovman Powell asked opponents to bat first, and the team’s bowling unit justified his decision with a super display of medium pace. Odean Smith’s spell of 2 wickets for 27 runs and Sheldon Cottrell’s spell of 2 wickets for 31 runs helped them to restrict opponents to 131 runs.
Windies’ openers Kyle Mayers and Brandon King gave a fiery start to the chase but failed to convert that partnership into a match-winning one. Captain Rovman Powell took all that charge in the middle overs to thrash African bowlers and helped his team to secure a win. Rovman Powell played a blistering knock of not out 43 runs from 18 balls at a strike rate of 238.88.
Though the West Indies bowling unit has yet to tick all the boxes this series, they have a batting unit that is capable of chasing any competitive target set in the T20Is. They just need to maintain their momentum in the upcoming game at Centurian.
