West Indies and South Africa are set to square off at the Rose Bowl in the 15th fixture of the 2019 World Cup.

The Faf du Plessis-led side will be desperate to open their account with three losses from their previous three games while the Windies will be looking to bag another two crucial points with a win against Pakistan followed by an agonizing loss against Australia.

With both teams keen to get their campaign back on track, one could certainly expect some exciting action on the cards.
