West Indies vs South Africa 1st T20I Live Telecast: The SportsRush presents before you the timing and live streaming details of the first WI vs SA T20I.
The first T20I of the ongoing South Africa’s tour of West Indies will be played at the National Cricket Stadium tonight. After getting whitewashed 2-0 in cricket’s ancestral format, the hosts would be keen to return to winning ways in St George’s.
Their quest of winning will be bolstered by the return of multiple A-list T20 superstars into the West Indian Playing XI. Led by Kieron Pollard, the West Indian XI is most likely to comprise of players such as Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Andre Russell and Dwayne Bravo.

Given the amount of T20 cricket that all these aforementioned names have played collectively in the last decade, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that West Indies will start as the favourites in this five-match T20I series.
As much as South Africa would be hoping to carry forward their form from Test to T20I cricket, they will have to put together a much improved team effort against West Indies. Not going by the ICC rankings of these teams, it is worth mentioning that this T20I series has it in it to allure eyeballs from across the globe.
