SA vs WI West Indies Tour of South Africa 1st Test 2023 Preview:
West Indies will take on the home team South Africa in the 1st Test at SuperSport Park, Centurion in the two-match Test series.
South Africa is coming into this series on the back of a series loss against Australia when they toured earlier this year. They were completely outplayed by Australia as they lost the 3-match series 0-2. South Africa’s disastrous series also ended their chances of qualifying for the WTC final.
However, they enter this series as favorites, with their key players being in prime form and the fact that they are playing at their home.
Temba Bavuma takes on the role of captaincy, he would be keen to put on a good performance with the bat here. He is in good touch as he scored a century against England in the recently concluded ODI series.
Kagiso Rabada, South Africa’s bowling spearhead, can win matches for his team on his own. In the previous series, he was the leading wicket-taker for his team, with 11 wickets in 3 games at an average of 22.00.
Meanwhile, West Indies come into this encounter on the back of a 1-0 series victory against Zimbabwe which concluded earlier this month. Their batting and bowling unit equally contributed to the series’ victory. Even though they come into this series as underdogs, they surely carry the potential to upset any team on their day.
Tagenarine Chanderpaul, following his father’s footsteps, has been prophesied to become the leader of the next generation of West Indies batsmanship. The young left-handed opener piled up 258 runs in just 3 innings at an average of 129.00 in the recently concluded Zimbabwe series.
Gudakesh Motie won the Player of the Series award in their previous series, picking up 19 wickets in just 2 matches. He would love to reciprocate the same in this series as well.
