West Indies have tasted immense success this year, with the Under-19 team winning the World Cup, the ladies winning the Women’s World T20 2016, and the men winning the T20 World Cup 2016. Johnson Charles and Andre Fletcher were at the forefront of a number of victories, and they are likely to open batting in the tri-series as well. South Africa have been surprisingly poor this year despite a few bright sparks now and then. Quinton de Kock and Hashim Amla have been in stupendous form, and will be keen to continue in similar vain.

As for West Indies, only Jason Holder, Sunil Narine, Carlos Brathwaite, and Kieron Pollard played in IPL 2016. Jerome Taylor was in the Mumbai Indians (MI) squad but did not get a game. Surprisingly the ones who did well in IPL 9 — Dwayne Bravo and Andre Russell, as well as Chris Gayle — did not find a spot in the team. The home advantage and current momentum makes West Indies the favorites, but it remains to be seen whether they can deliver on the promise they showed recently in the T20 World Cup. They are up against a South African team that has not had a great run so far in 2016 and will be wary of West Indies’ unpredictability.
