West Indies will host South Africa for two-match Test series and 5 T20Is. South Africa has traveled to West Indies with new skipper Dean Elgar. The Proteas side suffered defeat in the previous series by 2-0. Now, they will aim on taking this series home by outclassing West Indies on their own soil. Dean Elgar is in top form, who has mustered 686 runs in the last 10 outings at an average of 40.35. Quinton de Kock will also play a key role with the bat if South Africa wants to win the series opener against the hosts. He is also in decent batting form and scored 499 runs in 10 games for his side.
On the other hand, West Indies will rely on Kraig Braithwaite, Jermaine Blackwood, who has performed impeccably well in the recent past. Undoubtedly, hosts will have an edge due to their strong line-up. But, it will not be an easy road ahead for them against Proteas.
