The South Africa vs West Indies ODI series will start today at the Buffalo Park in East London. It is a three-match series but is not a part of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.
Both South Africa and West Indies have struggled in the 50-over format of late. The fact that neither of the teams have confirmed their qualification in the 2023 Cricket World Cup highlights their recent shortcomings in the ODI arena.
West Indies have already completed their 24 matches in the Super League and are placed eighth in the standings currently with 88 points. On the other side, South Africa still have two home matches against the Netherlands left. Those two matches will happen immediately after the series against West Indies.
The Proteas hold the ninth spot in the points table with 78 points from 22 matches. They will aim to gain some momentum in the series against West Indies and then continue in the same vein against the Netherlands.
