Mc Coy and Charles Thump South Africa To Give Windies Series Sweep

West Indies swept the three T20I series against South Africa to conclude their T20 World Cup preparations in the most commanding way possible. South Africa, on the other hand, has won just two of their last 11 completed T20I matches since the last T20 World Cup, and have lost series to West Indies twice and Australia once, and entered the global competition on the back foot.

If there’s any consolation, it’s that none of South Africa’s powerhouse middle order of Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller and Tristan Stubbs were part of this series, but all will return for the World Cup. Still, there remain concerns over Quinton de Kock, who scored 64 runs in three innings and didn’t have a good time of it at the BBL, the SA20 and the IPL earlier, while also appearing to pick up a back injury on Sunday; and Ryan Rickelton, who managed only 43 runs in three innings.

Summarized scores: South Africa 163 for 7: Van dur Dussen 51
Mc Coy 3 for 39; Motie 2 for 21; Shamar Joseph 2 for 26
West Indies 165 for 2: Charles 69, King 44, Mayers 36*
West Indies won by 8 wickets
