First match of the West Indies series against South Africa was a nail-biter because rain intervened at a crucial time for the hosts. The first match was a no-brainer for them, despite the fact that they were the favourites. Now that they’ve been given a wake-up call, they’ll be ready to go in the first match.
A rematch of the women’s triangular series between South Africa and the West Indies will take place at Johannesburg’s Wanderers Stadium on January 31st, 2022. This match is a toss-up after the women from the West Indies beat the women from South Africa, despite playing at home. This is going to be a slam dunk of a contest.
RSAW vs WIW Team Previews
South Africa Women
South Africa’s U-19 team finished second in their group, but they performed far better than that. In spite of their efforts, they were unable to overcome India and ended up losing the match. The Proteas were dominant in their final two group stage games, and they carried that form and momentum into the quarterfinal.
Their matchup with England in the quarterfinals was anything but a walk in the park, as they went on to lose. Even though South Africa u-19 lost too many wickets too quickly, they were still nervous. Though their top-order batsman Dewald Brevis was once again spectacular, they had no one to stand alongside him at the crease. Brevis perished trying to score quick runs as the wickets fell around him.
On paper, South Africa U-19 have a solid team, but they’ll need to keep an eye on their opponents’ capabilities. Van Heerden and Dewald Brevis have done well up to this point, but how well they keep Sri Lankan spinners at bay will be critical. It will be a cakewalk for the South Africa U-19 team if they can handle that.

West Indies Women
Despite the absence of key players like Lizelle Lee and Dane van Niekerk, the Proteas went into the first match as the clear favourites. A well-balanced team, coupled with home advantage, made them a formidable force. However, their performance in the first match was a major disappointment on every level.
Their bowlers appeared completely erratic as they gave away too many freebies while bowling on a surface that had a bit of assistance early on. The West Indies Women were able to amass an impressive total before rain intervened and ended their innings.
A difficult chase for the Proteas had already begun when they lost many of their key players in the first few games. The Proteas were reduced to 87 for 5 before the match was called off due to rain, and the result was the same.
Proteas are missing out on a lot of valuable knowledge on paper. As it stands, the majority of their runs come from the bats of Laura Wolvaardt, Sune Luus, and Mignon du Preez. Despite this over-reliance, the South Africa Women’s team appears very capable, and it will be difficult to get past them if they play to their potential.

RSAW vs WIW Betting Tips
This match is of critical importance because the series was cancelled due to rain. As both teams gear up for the upcoming World Cup, getting their respective squads up to speed would be a top priority. The West Indies Women appear to be slightly ahead of their opponents when compared to how the first match went and their matchups on paper. In addition, if they win, we will profit handsomely, so betting on West Indies to win is the way to go here.
