West indies will be looking for at least a draw to get out of their loosing streak in this series. They have already lost the series and if they can’t show any positive result in the next match then their performance will be deemed as one of the worst. So for the indies, the match holds a lot of importance while South Africa will be playing for a white-wash.

Preview –

The last 2 test between these two opponents went in South Africa’s favor both times. On the first time South Africa won by an innings and 220 runs and even in the 2nd test match they dominated in all 3 section of the match and won the match quite comfortably.

Their batting, Bowling and fielding are good and they looked solid in the field. Their positive attitude even after after a missed chance, got them 2 convincing win. At this rate they will dominate the next match as well and we should not forget to mention that they have the home advantage in this match.

West Indies on the other hand looked devastated in the field. Their batters aren’t batting well and their bowlers are getting hit by South African batsmen all over the places. Their fielding isn’t very mentionable either. If they don’t change their attitude towards the match and improves all three section then i don’t see them winning any time soon.
