Cricket Live Betting: South Africa vs. West IndiesPublished January 9, 2015 by Amir G
South Africa host West Indies for the first of three Twenty20 international matches today at Cape Town (16:00 UK time).
Many eyes will be aimed at Cape Town's Newlands Cricket Ground today as the first of three Twenty20 international matches between South Africa and the West Indies begins (16:00 UK time).
South Africa Energized by Test Win
The T20 meetings begin after South Africa beat the West Indies 2-0 in the Test series, when in the last game last Friday the Proteas beat the Caribbean Kings by 8 wickets. However, the T20 format and line-up is different from the Test and South Africa will be at a disadvantage. The South Africans were defeated by two runs by Australia in their last T20 encounter against the Australians in Sydney and they'll be looking to fix the impression although they face a strong West Indies team.
The Proteas are currently ranked fourth in the T20 rankings with a rating of 121: 2785 points achieved in 23 matches. Winning the game today would see the Africans moving up to the third spot.
Different Game for West Indies at T20
The West Indies are considered to be better than South Africa in T20I and they will have the firepower to give South Africa a run for their money today. The team has had it tough last year and they'll look to improve with the onset of 2015. The Caribbean Kings are currently ranked seventh in the T20 rankings with a rating of 110 – 2520 points in 23 matches.
A win today could notch them up by one or two positions. The team can open with a win with skilled players like Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell and Captain Darren Sammy – all well known for their good T20 form.
