West Indies win toss, opt to field


West Indies win the toss and elect to bowl against South Africa in World Cup 2019 in England. South Africa, minus the services of their premier fast bowlers Dale Steyn and Lungi Ngidi, will face a powerful West Indies side in a must-win World Cup 2019 clash for the former at The Rose Bowl in Southampton.

South Africa, who have made the worst possible start at the World Cup, losing three matches on the trot, need to win their last six matches in the round-robin format to have any chance of reaching the semi-finals.

However, it will be a huge task for South Africa as the West Indies have shown intent with the bat and ball in their previous two matches. So far, nothing has been going South Africa's way as pacer Dale Steyn has been ruled out due to injury while Lungi Ngidi is also unfit for the game.

South Africa Playing XI - Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (WK), Faf du Plessis (C), Aiden Markram (IN FOR JP DUMINY) , Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada, Imran Tahir, Beuran Hendricks (IN FOR TABRAIZ SHAMSI).

West Indies Playing XI - Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo (IN FOR EVIN LEWIS), Shai Hope (WK), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder (C), Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Kemar Roach (IN FOR ANDRE RUSSELL).
