West Indies failed to chase down 160-odd targets in their previous two outings against South Africa after a promising start to their five-match T20 International series. Now, they face a distinct possibility of losing the T20I series too. The visitors overwhelmed the Windies in the two-match Test series. Then the Windies, spurred by the return of their globe-trotting stars, thrashed South Africa by eight wickets in the series opener. It was followed by close defeats, by 16 and 1 runs. Kieron Pollard & Co need a win in the penultimate match to keep the series alive. For Temba Bavuma’s men, it will be another good outing before the T20 World Cup later in the year.
