South Africa face West Indies in the second One-Day International (ODI) at the New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday. South Africa currently lead the five-match series 1-0 after winning the first ODI, which was curtailed by rain, at Durban by 61 runs.

The South African batting effort went through three distinct phases. The first phase saw opener and number three batsmen fall for ducks leaving South Africa precariously placed at 16 for two. The second phase was about three half centuries which came from the willows of AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla and David Miller. In the third phase, South Africa gave away a flurry of wickets being reduced to 238 for three to 279 for eight in 48.2 overs before rain came pouring down.

It wasn t by far the ideal start for Jason Holder as ODI skipper and with the ICC World Cup 2015 looming large, he ll want to correct things in the team fast. De Villiers will want to exploit West Indies recent struggles and may be eyeing a 5-0 whitewash.
