ICC CWC LIVE: South Africa vs West Indies: South Africa have decided to field in their opening ICC Cricket World Cup clash against West Indies in Delhi.

Match Preview

In the past, there have been some cracking ICC CWC encounters between these teams. In their first meeting in 1992, the Proteas came out on top. The Windies avenged their defeat in 1996 and 2003.

In the last edition in the West Indies in 2007, South Africa registered a big win to make it 2-2 in Cup history. Overall, there have been 50 ODIs between them, with the Proteas leading head-to-head 37-12.

But all that will count for little when both sides take the field in front of an expectant Kotla crowd.

Though South Africa captain Graeme Smith acknowledged that though they are one of the favourites in the tournament, it will be ignorant of them to make light of the Caribbean team.

“They have got some top notch players. On their day they can punish you really hard. That’s the thing about these big tournaments. You cannot afford to have a bad day. One off day and your Cup dreams are over,” Smith told reporters on the eve of the match.

The West Indies have a relatively young team and a lot will depend on Chris Gayle, Shivnarine Chanderp
