South Africa v West Indies preview, player tips & predictions

West Indies v South Africa betting predictions - icc world cup

South Africa v West Indies
Venue: Hampshire Bowl, Southampton, Monday, June 10, 10.30am (British time)
Head to head odds: South Africa $1.83; West Indies $1.95
Last time they met: West Indies 285 (49.5 overs) d South Africa 185 (46 overs) in Bridgetown, June 24, 2016.

South Africa’s campaign started with such high hopes, but they have been well beaten in all three of their matches so far.

The West Indies on the other hand will be in great shape to launch an assault on a second ICC World Cup title should they subdue the Proteas here.

The Windies crushed Pakistan in their opener and pushed Australia all the way. They are playing with real flair and confidence.

We are tipping this to be a really even contest; South Africa may play with a little more freedom themselves now that the ballooning expectations have been mercilessly lanced.

South Africa has an advantage in the fact it has had a game at this ground, albeit a loss to India last Wednesday.
This South Africa v West Indies betting preview will run you through betting options for match 15 of 48 of the ICC World Cup 2019.

Top batter prediction: The Proteas desperately need a couple of their batsmen to catch fire to turn their fortunes around. Rassie van der Dussen is certainly capable of doing that and to date he has made starts of 50, 41 and 22 but failed to go on with the job. The $6.50 available with William Hill looks reasonable and be sure to check the featured markets on the day of the game. For the Windies we had success with Shai Hope topping his team’s batters against Australia so we will stick with that winning formula and back hope again at $4.

Top bowler tip: In the first match at this ground the most successful bowlers were Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal though pacemen such as Kagiso Rabada and India’s Jasprit Bumrah were also dangerous. With that in mind, our tips to be leading wicket takers for each team are the West Indies’ exciting paceman Oshane Thomas and South Africa’s Rabada. They are at $4 and $3.75 with William Hill.

WGL best bets: South Africa v West Indies

Each of our ICC World Cup betting previews will highlight some potential wins for punters, or where our cricket tipsters think there is value to be found.

Kagiso Rabada for man of the match

The South African paceman looks ready to find top form and when he is there are few better seamers in the world. You can get at least $11 with this option at William Hill.

Shai Hope total runs over 32.5

Hope is really making an impression of late we think it’s a good bet even at $1.83 that he will score more than 32.5 runs.

South Africa v West Indies prediction

This is a clash of two strong bowling attacks and the game may be won or lost by the short-form superstar opening batsmen in each team. Chris Gayle for the Windies and Quinton de Kock for the Proteas. We are backing the Windies to come out on top.
