WI vs SA Head to Head Records: The SportsRush presents for you the Head to Head statistics for the first WI vs SA Test.
Having last played Test cricket against each other in 2015 and in West Indies in 2010, West Indies and South Africa are all set to lock horns against each other in a two-match Test series starting from today at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, St Lucia.
It is worth mentioning that West Indies and South Africa have just played 28 Tests against each other in their 29-year history. While West Indies have won only three out of these 28 matches, South Africa have 18 victories under their belt. The remaining seven matches had ended in a draw.
Playing under relatively new captains, both West Indies and South Africa would be looking to start afresh as the series has the potential to unlock hidden talents from both the teams.

The last time when West Indies and South Africa had faced each other in this format was at Newlands, Cape Town. On the back of the then wicket-keeper batsman AB de Villiers’ 21st Test century, the hosts had registered a convincing 8-wicket victory under Hashim Amla.
