Temba Bavuma scored a magnificent century in the last match but went down in vain as South Africa collapsed and couldn't get over the line.
South Africa won the Test series 2-0 and we now move our focus into the ODI series, South Africa will take on visitors West Indies in the 3rd ODI at Senwes Park in Potchefstroom, South Africa on the 21st of March. This is a crucial series for both teams as the ODI Super League points for ICC World Cup 2023 qualification are up for grabs. Temba Bavuma will lead South Africa and Shai Hope will lead the West Indian side after Nicholas Pooran stepped down as the Windies’ white-ball captain post the T20 World Cup 2022. Temba Bavuma scored a magnificent century in the last match but went down in vain as South Africa collapsed and couldn’t get over the line.
On the other hand, West Indies are placed eighth in the Super League rankings and will need some wins to make it to the qualification. They won the last ODI on the back of a brilliant performance by their captain Shai Hope who scored a fantastic century. West Indies played their last ODI series against New Zealand in August 2022, in which they lost 2-1 and would want to win this series 2-1. The series is currently 1-0 and this encounter will be a series decider and promises to go down to the wire.
