West Indies vs South Africa: Senwes Park Pitch Report Details Ahead of Third ODI
ODI cricket will return to Senwes Park in Potchefstroom today (Tuesday, March 21) as South Africa gear up to take on West Indies in the final match of their series. The Caribbean team has already gained an unassailable lead of 1-0 after a 48-run win at Buffalo Park three days ago. The first match of the series was abandoned.
West Indies will aim to continue their winning momentum in Potchefstroom and complete a 2-0 win. South Africa, on the other hand, will aim to get back on the winning track ahead of their crucial ICC Cricket World Cup Super League matches against the Netherlands.
Before the final ODI of the series starts, here’s a look at the pitch report details of Potchefstroom.
Senwes Park has not hosted a single ODI match since 2020. The venue hosted 19 ODIs from 2000 to 2020, with teams batting second emerging victorious in 10 of them. The Proteas have played eight ODIs on this ground and registered seven wins.
The pitch at this venue helps the batters and the fast bowlers. South Africa hosted Australia for an ODI match on this ground in March 2020. Aussie pacer Josh Hazlewood bowled an excellent spell of 2/37, while Marnus Labuschagne scored a hundred.
In 2015, Martin Guptill smashed a hundred at this venue. The visiting batters have enjoyed batting on this ground. West Indies batters will be keen to get out there in the middle and play a big knock against the Proteas today.
South Africa defeated Australia by six wickets in the previous ODI at this venue. Marnus Labuschagne’s 108-run knock helped the Aussies post 254/7 in their 50 overs. Anrich Nortje was the pick of the bowlers for the Proteas with figures of 2/35.
Brief Scores: Australia 254/7 (Marnus Labuschagne 108, Anrich Nortje 2/35) lost to South Africa 258/4 (JJ Smuts 84, Josh Hazlewood 2/37) by 6 wickets.
