Four sides are still in contention for a top two finish in Group 1 of the World T20 Tournament, and a place in the semi finals.
On Friday, two of the countries vying for those vital positions face each other at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium, Jamtha, Nagpur, with the unbeaten table topping West Indies and South Africa coming face to face.
Victory for the West Indies would see them into the last four, as they seek to reclaim the title that they won in 2012 against the hosts Sri Lanka.
South Africa on the other hand go into the match knowing that victory in each of their two remaining group fixtures might not be enough to secure a top two finish. While on the other hand, just one more win could be sufficient. Such is the log jam that has been created in the group by the results so far in the fixtures involving England. Losing to the West Indies, but beating South Africa.
While Sri Lanka do not look like a side who are good enough to successfully defend their title, they are still not out of the running, and could yet seize the prize of a semi final place.
Both of the Proteas fixtures so far, as well as the West Indies clash with England, were staged in Mumbai on a pitch made for big shots and high scores. Nagpur the venue for Friday’s contest will offer far more of a test for the shot makers of both countries. In the opening match of the tournament in Nagpur, New Zealand were able to successfully defend just 126-7 against the hosts India.
The Proteas have won six of the nine previous T20I meetings between the sides, although most recently in 2015 in South Africa, the West Indies won a three match series by 2-1.
