INFO: West Indies will play their first warm-up match against the South African squad. South Africa won their first warm-up game against Sri Lanka and would be looking to try out a few more players in this match and finalize their combination. Windies would want to get off to a positive start and play their aggressive brand of cricket.
The 5th warm-up game of the ICC World Cup 2019 will be played between South Africa and Windies at County Ground in Bristol.
The match starts at 10:30 AM
The Pakistan-Afghanistan game played at this venue witnessed a bit of turn for the spinners. It was the same track used for a high-scoring ODI between England and Pakistan last week.
Probable Playing XI:
Faf du Plessis (C), David Miller, Aiden Markram, Hashim Amla, Rassie van der Dussen, Jean-Paul Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Chris Morris, Quinton de Kock (WK), Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Dale Steyn, Tabraiz Shamsi.
Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Fabian Allen, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Holder (C), Nicholas Pooran, Shai Hope (wk), Ashley Nurse, Kemar Roach, Oshane Thomas, Shannon Gabriel, Sheldon Cottrell.
- WI will try their bench strength
- SA will try to find their winning XI
- Both the teams will try to fina perfect XI
In nine ODI innings as an opener, Shai Hope scored 848 runs with four centuries and three fifties. His average of 121.14 is twice the 2nd best among the players with 500+ ODI runs as an opener.
Average 1st innings score: 300 (Last 5 List A matches)
Record of chasing teams: Won – 3, Lost – 2
Fantasy Cricket Tips:
- Kagiso Rabada should be pick as death bowl specalist
- Lungi Ngidi impressed a lot in the last match picking up 2 wickets at an economy rate of just 2 runs an over.
- Ashley Nurse, will be my last pacer in this team. Nurse had a good tri-series a couple of weeks back wherein he consistently picked up wickets in every match and ended up as one of the best bowlers of the tournament.
- Andile Phehlukwayo had an amazing warm-up match against Sri Lanka where he picked up 4 wickets and scored 35 runs in the middle order.
- Andre Russell. Russell is probably in the best form possible especially with the bat. He has been hitting sixes for fun in the IPL and is a brutal, destructive and unbelievable player.
- Quinton de Kock, who did not bat in the first warm-up, is expected to get a go in this one.
- Faf du Plessis and Hashim Amla had a good match against Sri Lanka. They both scored 65+ runs and looked to be in top form.
Captain and Vice-Captain Selection:
Quinton de cock, Hashim amla
Chris Gayle, Andre Russel
