West Indies v South Africa 1st Test – Match Preview

The West Indies and South Africa have played 28 Tests. The Proteas have won 18 of those. The Windies have three wins. There have been seven draws.

The Windies have not beaten SA in Test cricket since 2007. The last time the Proteas played a Test in the Caribbean was in 2010.

Where: Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium, Gros Islet, St Lucia

When: Thursday, 10 June 2021

Pitch conditions: Based on recent Test records here, the toss-winning captain will likely opt to bowl first. Four of the seven Tests played here have ended in draws. The tourists have won more than the hosts here. The West Indies have only one Test win here, against Bangladesh.

Weather conditions: Showers are predicted for the days leading up to the match. This is also the case for the five matchdays. But these should be seasonal and pass relatively quickly, if they arrive at all. Humidity levels should be characteristically high of the Caribbean, with temperatures hanging around the late 20s degrees celsius.

West Indies v South Africa 1st Test – Team News

  • Roston Chase – The all-rounder struck a century against England the last time the West Indies played a Test in St Lucia. His simple right-arm spin could be key, too.
  • Shai Hope – The Windies batsman is a tremendous talent and struck a ton in the recent warm-up match at the same ground that will be used for the series opener.
  • Jayden Seales – The young fast bowler could be capped for the first time in Test cricket. His extra pace might be tough for the opposition batsmen to manage.
  • Keegan Petersen – South Africa need a replacement for Faf du Plessis in the middle-order. Petersen seems set to fill the post, if not Kyle Verreynne.
  • Anrich Nortje – The fast bowler was recently named Cricket South Africa‘s Test Cricketer of the Year. He will play the longest format of the international game in the Caribbean for the first time.

West Indies v South Africa 1st Test – Betting Tips and Predictions

Here are more free cricket betting tips. They can help you make stronger decisions. These match predictions include competitive odds.

Pick Markram to Outscore Elgar

bet365 often go a step further than other Indian cricket betting sites by creating additional, interesting markets for Test matches.

Their batsman match markets are especially interesting. They have many on offer for this series, pitting team-mates and opposition batsmen against each other.

We like the look of Aiden Markram to score more runs than fellow Proteas opener Dean Elgar at 2.0 with bet365.

Markram has been in great form at domestic level, while Elgar now has the Test captaincy to navigate as well. This could toll on his primary role with the bat.

Bet on No Century to Be Scored

There have been 17 centuries in seven Tests at this ground. That’s an average of more than two tons per match.

You’d be betting against the odds with 1xBet’s price of 6.8 for a century not to be scored, but we think it is a reasonable option that could bring great value.

The South African batsmen will be desperately short of international game time. The Windies batsmen could really struggle against unfamiliar bowlers, in challenging conditions.

Make Holder Your Player of the Match

Jason Holder is no longer the West Indies Test captain, but still an integral part of their Test plans and all but guaranteed a berth in the playing XI.

A genuine Test match all-rounder, in that he can have a positive impact with bat or ball, Holder features prominently in 22Bet’s player of the match market at an attractive price of 13.0.

It’s a longer shot, but our team of experts reckon it’s one worth taking, given his impressive performances against Sri Lanka in Test cricket just a couple of months ago.
