The last time South Africa and West Indies played an ODI against each other was way back in 2016. In what was the last league match of the West Indies Tri-Nation series at Barbados, West Indies had defeated South Africa by 100 runs to enter the final of the tournament.
A combined bowling effort from Shannon Gabriel (3), Sunil Narine (3) and Carlos Brathwaite (2) had seen Proteas being restricted to 185 in 46 overs. Had it not been their bowlers standing tall with the bat, South Africa would have bundled out under 150.
In the first innings, Darren Bravo had registered his third ODI century, 102 (103), with the help of 12 fours and four sixes. It was a 156-run partnership for the fifth wicket between Bravo and Kieron Pollard (62) which laid the foundation of the hosts’ innings.
