Preview: Faf du Plessis-led South Africa will hope to sign-off their ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 preparations on a positive note as they face Jason Holder’s West Indies in the fifth warm-up game of the tournament on Sunday.

The Proteas come into this match on the back of a morale-boosting win against Sri Lanka, who were completely outplayed despite Dimuth Karunaratne (87) and Angelo Mathews’ (64) efforts.

Faf du Plessis (88) and Hashim Amla’s (65) heroics overshadowed the Sri Lankan duo's knocks, whereas Andile Phehlukwayo completed the damage for  with a match-winning spell of 4-36.

West Indies, on the other hand, endured a disappointing outing to Ireland where they were outplayed by Bangladesh in the final recently, with the Bangla Tigers clinching their first-ever multi-nation trophy.

This will in all probabilities be Chris Gayle’s last opportunity to have a go as the Windies aim for their first World Cup trophy since 1979.

Ever since coming back to the ODI fold earlier this year, the swashbuckling left-handed batsman has registered scores of 135, 50, 162 and 77 – all coming against England in a home series in February.

Meanwhile, this will be a first World Cup tournament for a few of the Windies players – including Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope, who have displayed some promising performances in the last few months.
