South Africa v West Indies | 1st ODI | North Sound, Antigua | 22 May 2010
The 1st ODI between West Indies and South Africa will starting soon after rain held delay toss.
The pitch here at Sir Vivian Richards stadium favoured the bowlers in the two T20 games, so expect a low-scoring match today. West Indies fortunes tend to follow the Gayle in T20 but in the 50-over format Sarwan, Bravo and Chanderpaul should provide a sterner test for the South African bowlers.
South Africa trying diffrent combination in the Twenty20s and in the first ODI as well i dont think its gonna help quickly because the pitch tough for batting but bowlers will have a good series though! Tough luck for both teams.
Amla should be a certain in all three formats really. He's able to score at a fast pace, and is probably South Africa's most reliable opener at the moment. If he had been included in the T20 tournament, south Africa's fortunes may have been different.
