West Indies are on the brink of losing their title as South Africa crushed the regional side by eight wickets this morning, in a game overshadowed by Proteas star Quinton de Kock’s refusal to take the knee prior to their T20 World Cup clash.
Sent into bat in Dubai, Windies opener Evin Lewis hit 56 in their 143 for eight.
Dwaine Pretorius picked up three for 17 as the Windies again failed to put a competitive score on the board, after a painstaking 16 off 35 balls from Lendl Simmons at the top of the order.
Aiden Markram then smashed 51 not out, in an unbeaten 83-run third-wicket stand with Rassie van der Dussen who added 43, to achieve their target with ten balls to spare.
