WIW vs RSAW Team Previews
West Indies Women
Windies Women started off well as Hayley Matthews proved the skipper's decision right by removing Lizelle Lee and Sune Luus without anything to their name. Although there were a couple of partnerships which began to prosper thereafter, the bowlers never allowed the run-rate to get high.
With the pitch being slow and low and scoring being extremely difficult, West Indies' bowlers didn't give any freebies whatsoever in the middle overs. Anisa Mohammed bowled particularly well and got a last-over hat-trick to stall the Proteas at a total of 101.
Chasing 101 could have been tricky for the hosts had they lost a few wickets in the powerplay overs. However, despite the early loss of one of their openers, Natasha McLean and skipper Stafanie Taylor kept their composure as they romped home with nine wickets and 27 balls to spare.

South Africa Women
Losing the toss on a bowling-friendly was just the beginning of the bad run in the game for the Proteas in the second T20I. With their batting being heavily dependent on the top-four, it was imperative for them to get off to a decent start and kick-on from there. Instead, they lost Lizelle Lee and Sune Luss, their openers, within the opening four overs.
Despite Dane van Niekerk formed a few partnerships with Chloe Tryon and Mignon du Preez, the Proteas could not really get back in the game. Their batters kept on postponing the late assault amid falling wickets and they found themselves at 95 for 5 in 19 overs. The late assault they left it for the final over never came as they could score only six runs in the 20th over.
With a total of just 101 runs on the board, the bowlers needed to make early inroads into the in-form Windies batting lineup. However, Windies got off to a flying start and there weren't many bowlers could do afterward. Overall, South Africa Women haven't looked threatening at all in the two games they've played, but considering the kind of cricket they played in the previous tours, a fightback from them is certainly on the cards.

With the ICC World T20 less than a couple of months away, this series is seen as a dress rehearsal before the prestigious tournament. While South Africa are still struggling to get their combination right as per the conditions, Windies are appearing to be a pretty settled unit. With two wins in two matches, the hosts have the momentum with them. Their spinners have been brilliant in friendly conditions which has highlighted the vulnerabilities of Proteas' batwomen in such conditions. Considering the form, conditions, and the teams on paper, West Indies Women are favorites to win the upcoming match and go 3-0 up in the series.
