Marco Jansen dismissed Shai Hope for golden duck – WI vs SA

Shai Hope who scored an impressive 26 ball fifty in his previous match, returned pavilion for GOLDEN DUCK in the crucial game against South Africa at Antigua. Marco Jansen in the very first over dismissed Shai Hope and made an early breakthrough.

South Africa was scheduled to face West Indies to play the 50th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 on June 23 in Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua. Moreover, it is a knockout game where the winners will enter the semi-finals round.

West Indies have won only one of their two Super 8 games while South Africa remains unbeaten in the same. With England already qualified for the semi-finals, still only one spot left out in the group 2.

Notably, both West Indies and South Africa won all four of their group games. The teams have played 22 T20Is against each other, and each won 11 games so far. It is worth mentioning, that West Indies have lost two of the four T20Is they have played at this ground, both of them to South Africa – who have won all three they’ve played there.

Speaking of the match, winning the toss, South Africa decided to bowl first where Kyle Mayers and Shai Hope opened the inning for West Indies. In the very third delivery of the inning, Marco Jansen dismissed Shai Hope for a golden duck and made an excellent start for South Africa.

In the very next over, Markram dismissed Pooran for one run and loaded pressure over the West Indies batters. Picking a couple of early wickets might not stop West Indies from scoring big.

Windies have a power-packed batting line-up which could explode at any point of the game. With a couple of catch drops in the powerplay, West Indies managed to score 47 runs for 2 wickets loss at the end of the first powerplay.

47 runs is the second-lowest powerplay total for West Indies in this World Cup after 23 vs NZ in Tarouba.
