WI vs SA 5th T20I: 2 massive strategies West Indies, South Africa could deploy to escalate their winning chances in decider match: The ongoing T20I series between West Indies and South Africa is indeed a heart-racing contest where the four matches had much gripping tussle to offer even on the last ball of the match. As the Carrebians pulled off a spectacular win in the fourth match against the Proteas to level the series 2-2, Windies have ensured the buzz for the decider 5th ODI is all alive.
Here at InsideSport, we hog some light on the strategies that the two sides can potentially deploy to up their Trophy-lifting chances in the upcoming contest.
WI vs SA 5th T20I: Greater batting depth
A solid batting lineup backed with some batting all-rounders can purely rise up the chances of winning for either side. The venue- National Cricket Stadium, St George’s, Grenada is a small ground and the pitch is extremely batsmen friendly- the ball comes easily on the bat, as witnessed in the preceding four matches.
No wonder, West Indies tactfully foresaw batsmen’s incubation as a potential game-changer and thus played with eight world-class batters in their playing squad in the fourth T20I, who reciprocated them with a win.
WI vs SA 5th T20I: Spin, Medium pace bowling
The gone-by matches speak volumes for the spinners and medium pacers who have taken off better than the core pacers at this track. While the likes of Kevin Sinclair, Fabian Allen, Dwayne Bravo, Obed McCoy, Andre Russel, and Kieron Pollard have done disciplined bowling (Taken total of 26 wickets) for West Indies, George Linde, Tabraiz Shamsi (Taken total of 8 wickets) have roared well for South Africa. The-batsmen friendly pitch has often been foxed by these bowlers who have conceded fewer runs, backed better economy, and toppled many wickets.
