South Africa and West Indies will take center stage for the final game of the two-match Test series on March 8 at the Wanderers Stadium. The hosts had a great showing in the first match and they trumped Kraigg Brathwaite & Co. by 87 runs. Aiden Markram was the chief architect of the triumph as he notched up a total of 163 runs in the game.

Moreover, the Proteas pace quartet was at their clinical best and maintained constant pressure on the opposition by chipping away with wickets at regular intervals. Temba Bavuma & Co. would look to carry on the good work and emerge victorious in the upcoming encounter.

Coming to the West Indies, they were sensational with the ball in the first Test and gave South Africa a run for their money. However, the batters were not able to put their best foot forward and as a result, the visitors lost the game. With the Test series on the line, the team would want a better showing from their batting unit. Brathwaite & Co. would look to be at their best and end the Test series on a high.

Pitch and Conditions

The surface at the Wanderers Stadium is known to provide assistance to the pacers and batters have had a tough time out in the middle. In the 38 Tests played at the venue, the team batting first has won 17 Tests while the side batting second has stood tall on 11 occasions.
