World Cup 2019 Preview Struggling South Africa Face West Indies In Must Win Clash

Abbott was controversially replaced by all-rounder Vernon Philander for South Africa's 2015 World Cup semi-final against New Zealand - and two years later ended a burgeoning Proteas career by signing a Kolpak contract with Hampshire. They need points on the board to stand any chance of making it to the semi-finals. The Proteas lost to India by six wickets on Wednesday, following defeats to England and Bangladesh in their first two matches. West Indies opened with a win over Pakistan and then had defending champion Australia in trouble before losing the second game by 15 runs.

South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said he would have liked to bowl first.

"I think if you look at it, and I've said this to the players also, when you look at World Cup and teams that win World Cups, the best players or the seniors are the ones that carry the team, and the youngsters, obviously they fill in and do their job as well".

Seven taken to hospital after gunman fears spark panic at Pride event
After the mayhem, Capital Pride tweeted that the parade was over but a block party would go on as scheduled. Police spokesperson Jordan identified the second arrested person as Melissa Duffy , 43, of no fixed address.

So far, nothing seems to work well for South Africa as pacer Dale Steyn has been ruled out due to injury while Lungi Ngidi is also unfit for the game on Monday.

South Africa have plenty to discuss about their inconsistent performance with the bat and their openers - Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla will have to surely fire against the Windies. The Proteas now needs to play fearless and attacking cricket.

Instead, his counterpart, Jason Holder, on Monday chose to bowl first in overcast conditions at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.
