WI vs SA Match Preview
The second Test between South Africa and West Indies is set to take place at the Daren Sammy National Stadium in St Lucia from this Friday.
With a stunning victory in the first Test, South Africa got off to a brilliant start. They smashed the host at their home by an innings and 63 runs. South Africa cannot lose the series now, thanks to stunning bowling efforts from the pace trio of Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Lungi Ngidi. Now, they will look forward to taking the series 2-0.
West Indies, who have done well in the longer format in recent years, failed to put up a fight in the first Test against the visitors. They were completely outplayed by the South African fast bowlers and failed to make a comeback.
Aside from Kemar Roach and Roston Chase, none of the West Indian players played up to the mark. The men from the Caribbean must win this match to level the series 1-1.

WI vs SA Weather & Pitch Report
The weather for the Test match at St. Lucia doesn’t look promising at all. There are high predictions of thunderstorm and rain on all the next four days and we can expect rain delays. The temperature is expected to be around 25 to 30 Degree Celsius.
It’s a batting-friendly track, where batters can expect a true bounce from the surface and play shots accordingly. The outfield is really quick and the ball travels very fast into the fence. Whoever wins the toss should bowl first.
