WI vs SA Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the first WI vs SA T20I.
After a one-sided two-match Test series going in the visitors’ favour, South Africa’s tour of West Indies is all set to enter its second leg in the form of a five-match T20I series.
National Cricket Stadium in St George’s, which had hosted its first-ever T20I last year, will be hosting the complete series in COVID-19 times. West Indies, who had lost their only match over here, would be eager to register their maiden victory against South Africa.
Despite whitewashing West Indies 2-0 in the T20I series, South Africa would be vary of facing them in the shortest format especially in the presence of some of their quintessential T20 superstars. With an ICC T20 World Cup to be played this year, both the teams will undoubtedly be looking to make the most of this series with respect to zeroing in on their squads for the world event.
