Meanwhile, the Aiden Markram-led side will be eyeing to make a comeback in the series after flopping in the first game. Notably, players like David Miller and Sisanda Magala were sensational in the first T20I, but the Proteas came out short. Questions were raised on Aiden Markram’s captaincy, and the team has much to prove in the second T20I at the SuperSport Park in Centurion.
When it comes to the West Indies, skipper Rovman Powell stole the show in the first match. The 29-year-old smashed 43* off just 18 deliveries, and with that, the visiting side managed to win the game in the final over. Opener Brandon King played well, and thus, they could take a couple of positives from the first match. However, the team would look forward to improving their bowling as all the bowlers conceded more than ten runs per over in the first match.

Sisanda Magala impressed one and all in the first match of the T20I series. He contributed well with the ball but, most importantly, picked up three crucial wickets. Courtesy of his brilliant spell towards the fag end, South Africa made a late comeback but unfortunately lost the match.
