SA vs WI Dream11 Prediction, Playing 11, Top Picks, Fantasy Cricket Tips for 2nd ODI South Africa vs West Indies Dream11 Team for Today’s Match
Updated on: Mar 17, 2023 5:57 pm IST
The first ODI between South Africa and West Indies was completely washed out without a ball being bowled. The game was called off due to persistent rain without even the toss being held. The second ODI now becomes all the more important as both sides will be looking to take the lead. It will also be played at the Buffalo Park in East London.
South Africa will be boosted by their form in Test cricket and would like to translate that in ODIs. It is a much changed Proteas side with a host of key stars rested. Can they field the right combination? West Indies, on the other hand, will look to bounce back from their recent defeats and put up a good show. Shai Hope has the captain’s armband for this series and he would look to lead from the front.
