Both of these two teams have been firing with the bat so expect fireworks tonight!
South Africa v West Indies
South Africa can go level on points with West Indies if they can beat them tonight, and history suggests they’ve got a decent chance of doing so, they’ve won six of their nine clashes with West Indies. Confidence amongst the South African bowlers can’t be that high, first they let England knock of a mammoth total and then they conceded 172 against Afghanistan. However their batting is something else, on both occasions in this World Cup they’ve set 200+.
This will be a cracking match and worth staying up for or coming back in for, West Indies will have too much with Gayle fully fit, get on them at $2.3
Chris Morris has impressed me, he adds a lot with both bat and ball, he didn’t fare that well against the Poms but bounced back to take 4-27 against Afghanistan. He stood out against the minnows when all other seamers were going around the park. He’s my pick to be top South African bowler at $4.5.
Oddschecker’s best bet
Both teams have numerous match winners, and numerous players who can clear the ropes with ease. It looks like it will be a high-scoring affair, our best bet is over 12 sixes at $1.83 with Bet365. South Africa have hit 23 in their first two games and West Indies 17.
