West Indies made a good start to this edition of World Cup in England. They defeated Pakistan brutally in the first game but slumped to a 15-run defeat against Australia. On the other hand, the Proteas are in a difficult situation after losing all three matches thus far. Windies are now scheduled to play against South Africa at the Rose Bowl on 10th June.

After losing three matches on the trot, South Africa is in desperate search of a win against the Windies. Their batting was not at par in the last match against India and could only put a total of 227/9.
Cricket Match Prediction Key Players
Batting has been a major concern for the Proteas in the matches till now. There have been half-centuries by Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis and Ran van der Dussen but none of them were converted into big innings. These three players form the backbone of the side and they need to score big to put South Africa in a comfortable position. Ran der van Dussen has made a brilliant start to his ODI career and we expect same class from him.
Kagiso Rabada is the lead bowler and is in sublime touch with two wickets in the previous match against India. Imran Tahir is one of the top ICC bowlers and has taken four wickets in the three matches.

The West Indies side has made a crystal clear start to their campaign in World Cup with an impressive win over Pakistan and a close match against Australia. Windies are not looking backward and would like to climb the points table.
Cricket Match Prediction Key Players
We can relive the fast bowlers of Windies back in the 80s and 90s. There has been a glimpse of same brutal bowling with hostile spells by Oshane Thomas, Sheldon Cotrell, Jason Holder, Andre Russell, and Carlos Braithwaite. Oshane Thomas has been a sensation with four and two wickets in the two matches respectively. Other bowlers have also picked up the wickets too.
Andre Russell is the best all-rounder in the world at the moment and he would be expected to perform with both bat and ball. Shai Hope top scored in the previous match with the score of 68 runs and was complemented by half-century by Jason Holder. Nicholas Pooran can be power-hitter along with Chris Gayle at top of the order.

Weather & Pitch Conditions
It is a largely dry and cloudy start to the day with some showers expected in the morning. The rain can be heavier as the day progresses through the afternoon. We hope there is no interruption to the match. The temperature will linger around 15 degrees with cloud cover throughout the day. Humidity would be around 90%.
The pitch favors batting but due to overcast conditions, it might be a bit difficult. The pitch is expected to ease as the game progresses. There are chances of DLS method coming into play as there are chances of rain.
With the DLS method in question, it is a safer choice to field first and chases the target.
Cricket Match Prediction and Tips
It is going to be a crucial match for the Proteas to prove their ability. Though they had a bad start this season, it is a much better side. Windies, on the other hand, are adapted to the conditions and all the departments are in fine form.
We think West Indies can make their mark in this game against weak South Africa.
