West Indies win toss and field against Proteas

World Cup 2019 Preview Struggling South Africa Face West Indies In Must Win Clash

South Africa have made the worst possible start at the World Cup

THE West Indies match against South Africa at the International Cricket Council 50-over World Cup was abandoned at Southampton in England, today.

The pacer's performance in their six wicket loss to India must be heartening for skipper Faf du Plessis and the team management, but it's the batsmen who need to step-up against a good looking West Indies pace attack.

Quinton de Kock, who successfully reviewed a freaky caught-behind decision earlier in his innings, and Du Plessis were in the midst of rebuilding when the rain brought a halt - and ultimately an end - to the contest.

The West Indies will stay in Southampton to take on top-ranked England, featuring former Barbados fast bowler Jofra Archer, on Friday.

That means that West Indies are now fifth on the table, with three points from three games, while South Africa finally have a point to their name, having lost three games on the trot heading in to this encounter.

Sophia Gardens in Cardiff will play host to what is the Proteas only scheduled day/night match during the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

"These are the worst", South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said. Yes, he's bowling quickly, but there's nothing we're not accustomed to.

"We just feel like it is more important for him to just have another three or four days to build-up his loads again so he can bowl eight, nine, 10 overs".

Now the South Africans need to win every game and hope some other results go their way.

The West Indies made one change to the lineup that lost to Australia, with Darren Bravo recalled to open the innings at the expense of Evin Lewis.

South Africa have also made two changes to their playing XI that featured against India - Aiden Markram and Beuran Hendricks come in for JP Duminy and Tabraiz Shamsi.
