After a crushing defeat in the Test series, West Indies will seek redemption in the five-match T20I series starting tomorrow, 26th June. A full strength West Indies squad will be at disposal for the South Africa series. West Indies come into this series on the back of a 2-1 series win over Sri Lanka at home. South Africa, on the other hand, have lost their last five T20I series. Their last series was against Pakistan which they lost 3-1. However, they were without the services of their big guns who left the series midway to play the IPL. All of them will be back for the West Indies series thus South Africa can expect some favourable results. Temba Bavuma, who missed the Test series due to injury should be back to lead the side. Dwaine Pretorious has tested positive for COVID-19 and has been ruled out of the series. He will be replaced by Wiaan Mulder. Here is all you need to know about the T20 series.
