South Africa vs West Indies Betting Tips 26/10/2021

Teams Status

South Africa

Both these teams got humbled in their tournament openers – South Africa a little less than the West Indies but their defeat to Australia was, nonetheless, chastening.

Their batting’s production of just 118 runs wasn’t due to any meltdowns but just lethargic batting that saw wickets tumble at regular intervals.

Aiden Markram top-scored with 40 but others around him did not survive for long. 

Their bowlers did make a match of it and took the game to the final over but in the end, the Aussies prevailed.

In a group that has two clear favourites, an instant bounce back is needed, if South Africa are to harbour any hope of progression.

West Indies

It’s unreal that the defending champions with so much natural T20 talent could fold like this in the first game of their title defense.

The entire Windies line-up could muster just 56 runs against England in the opener, with just a single batsman (Chris Gayle) managing to get into double figures.

Only a side as mercurial as the Calypso Kings can implode in such a fashion. The question now is, can the Windies recover? On historical evidence, they can. If anyone can, they can.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: South Africa to win @ 1.98

Pound for pound, South Africa possess less talent than the West Indies but they are a more organised side that can be expected to deliver greater consistency. We’d prefer them over the Caribbean Kings in this game. The odds have been sourced from Dafabet.

Tip: Top Batsman South Africa – Quinton de Kock @ 3.38

South Africa’s star batsman Quinton de Kock averages a staggering 50.33 in T20Is against the West Indies. That number is almost 16 runs higher than his career average of 34.6. The leftie clearly likes it against the Men from the Caribbean. The bet here is for him to top score for South Africa in this game. The odds have been sourced from 22Bet.


Any side can win this one as indicated by the close odds attributed to each. That said, we’d prefer the less implosive South Africa.
