Windies beat South Africa by 16 runs in the second T20 Roston Chase played a match-winning innings of 67 runs

New Delhi. West Indies have won the series against South Africa by winning the second consecutive T20 match. The way the Caribbean team, captained by Brandon King, has performed against the Proteas is commendable. The Windies team has arrived on this tour of South Africa without their regular captain Rovman Powell and Andre Russell, Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran. The Windies batsmen scored 207 runs for 7 wickets in 20 overs due to their brilliant batting. After this, their bowlers bowled brilliantly and stopped the host team at 191 runs. In this way, West Indies won the second T20 match by 16 runs.

South African (SA vs WI) team, which came out to chase the target of 208 runs set by West Indies, got a great start from its openers. The opening pair of Reeza Hendricks and Quinton de Kock scored 81 runs in 5 overs for the first wicket. After this, the South African team kept losing wickets at regular intervals. From their side, wicketkeeper de Kock scored the highest 41 runs in 17 balls while captain Rassie van der Dussen was dismissed after scoring 30 runs. From West Indies, spinner Gudakesh Moti took the maximum 3 wickets. Roston Chase, Akil Hussain and Romariya Shepherd took one wicket each.

The team lost… but the captain played a record-breaking innings, Babar Azam surpassed Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli's great record is in danger.

Alarm bells for South Africa
South Africa's series loss before the T20 World Cup is a warning signal for them. The upcoming T20 World Cup is to be held in West Indies and America from June 2. It is not easy for any team to defeat a Caribbean team in its home. This West Indies team is very strong in terms of T20. In the World Cup, they will also have strong batsmen like Russell, Pooran and Hetmyer.
