After reaching the ICC Cricket World Cup semifinals in the 2015 tournament, South Africa entered the 2019 edition with high expectations, only to see their campaign crumble under the combined weight of sloppy play, injuries, and internal turmoil. On Monday, still looking for their first victory after three consecutive losses, according to CricBuzz, the Proteas face another difficult hurdle in a much-improved West Indies team that have their sites set on resurrecting the Caribbean cricketing glory days of the 1970s and early 1980s. The Windies dominated Pakistan to open their World Cup, then lost a close 15-run decision to defending world champs Australia. The team now looks to take out their frustrations on the struggling South Africa team in the match that will live stream from the Rose Bowl.

The latest upheaval in the South Africa camp originates with a star player who is not even with the team, when it was revealed that South Africa legend AB de Villiers had attempted to suddenly reverse the retirement from the international game that he announced in May of 2018, and rejoin the Proteas for the World Cup — only to be rebuffed. The superstar has been playing in lucrative, T20 franchise leagues almost ceaselessly since his retirement, and according to the South African news site The Citizen, de Villiers’ latest antics have deeply strained his longtime friendship with current South Africa Captain Fas du Plessis.
“Old friends Faf and AB have fallen out, while the coach and manager’s jobs are on the line as cricket team wilts,” wrote South Africa’s Sunday Times newspaper on June 9. Now du Plessis and his men are hoping that a surprise win over the favored Windies will help salve their wounds.
