West Indies and South Africa will face each other in the first Test of the two-match series at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium. Both the teams haven’t faced each other for a long time in the format and they will be playing under new captains in Dean Elgar and Kraigg Brathwaite..
South Africa come into this series after losing Tests in Pakistan while the Caribbean side played out a 0-0 draw in the two-match series at home against Sri Lanka. Bowling attacks of both the sides are brilliant and that could eventually be the battle to watch out for in this series.
