SA vs WI Betmaster Match Prediction, 18th Match T20 World Cup, 26th October 2021
South Africa is hunting for their first win and are now up against defending champions West Indies. They nearly pulled off an upset defending just 118 runs and their bowlers were on mark from ball one and Dubai’s pitch will offer them more help which will be a huge edge for South Africa’s big tall fast bowlers.
The form of their star player Quinton de Kock might be a slight area of concern. He looked off-color in IPL during the UAE leg and didn’t have the best of starts to the tournament but will look to turn around things again his favorite West Indies. South Africa has a balanced bowling lineup, it is just the batting group that needs to support them.
West Indies were bundled out for just 55 runs in their last game and it was the worst defeat in their rich T20 history. They will now look to make a strong comeback and start their campaign with a strong confident win against South Africa. West Indies are filled with big hitters but need a player who can keep their innings intact as Marlon Samuels did in 2012 and 2016.
West Indies will be happy after their bowling efforts despite not having a respectable total on the board. Ravi Rampaul and Akeal Hosein looked sharp with their line and length and the same pitch is likely to be used which could be a slight edge for West Indies bowlers. West Indies are defending champions and they are expected to make a strong comeback in this match.
Popular Betting Odds For SA vs. WI, 18th Match T20 World Cup, Betmaster Match Prediction, Cricket Betting Tips
Top Batsman from South Africa – Aiden Markram (4.6 odds)
Aiden Markram was the lone warrior for South Africa in their last match against Australia. He scored good 40 runs but couldn’t get enough support from the other end. Markram has been in sensational form this year ever since being demoted to middle orders. His game against Spinners has improved which has helped him to rotate strike. He naturally is got striker of the ball and uses all his brutal hitting to perfection in death overs. Aiden Markram can give you good returns from this match and is our pick for best batsman from South Africa.
Top Batsman from West Indies – Shimron Hetmyer (5.8 odds)
Shimron Hetmyer threw his wicket away against Moeen Ali in the last match. Questions are asked about his approach in batting and Hetmyer will be raring to answer those questions in this match. He was in tremendous form in the IPL this season for Delhi Capitals and even was included in the team of the season.
Shimron Hetmyer is expected to play the anchor role in this West Indies team but can be really dangerous if he gets platform set by openers. Shimron Hetmyer has been in some good touch and can score big in this match. He is our pick for best batsman from the West Indies.
Top Bowler from South Africa – Anrich Nortje (3.55 odds)
Anrich Nortje dismantled Australia’s top order in the powerplay and bowled with some serious pace. He was also magnificent for Delhi Capitals in the 2nd leg and his experience from the last 2 seasons in UAE conditions will come into play in this tournament.
Nortje has looked really threatening in recent times and West Indies batters need to be careful of his serious pace in initial overs. Dubai’s pitch is likely to offer some extra bounce which will be a huge edge for him and Rabada. He can be a game-changer in this match and is our pick for best bowler from South Africa.
Top Bowler from West Indies– Ravi Rampaul (4.1 odds)
Ravi Rampaul took the wicket of Jason Roy in the last match and was really exciting to watch with the new ball. He was also the top wicket-taker in Caribbean Premier League this season with more than 20 wickets to his name. Rampaul comes with wealth of experience and uses his experience to perfection in crunch situations. He has got a good slower one and his variations could deceive South Africa’s batters. He has been in some incredible form lately and can give you good returns from this match. Ravi Rampaul is our pick for best bowler from the West Indies.
