World Cup 2019: West Indies to meet South Africa today
New Delhi: After losing all three encounters in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, West Indies will meet South Africa at Rose Bowl in Southampton. The match is scheduled to start at 3 pm (IST).
South Africa and two-time world champion West Indies have met each other a total of six times in previous World Cup encounters; with the former leading with 4-2.
The shaken Proteas will be coming down with a desperate need of a win as they lock horns with the Carribeans. The former are well behind the leading pack and a defeat against the latter will surely end their World Cup hopes.
