The South Africa cricket team will next take on the West Indies cricket team in a five-match T20I series starting from June 26, Saturday. The Proteas will be looking to extend their winning run in the Caribbean after inflicting a 2-0 whitewash in the Test series.

The Proteas registered two comprehensive victories against West Indies this month. While the first Test saw the tourists winning by an innings and 63 runs, West Indies lost the second Test match by 158 runs.

An under-performing West Indies side failed to cross the 200-run mark in all four of their innings’ in the two Test matches. Not only that but the hosts were also bowled out for a paltry 97 runs in the first innings of the first Test - their lowest against South Africa.

Pointing out the dismal batting display, Windies head coach Phil Simmons has called the domestic circuits to work more on developing the players before they are rolled out to the international stage.

“I don't think high-quality preparation is happening enough in the territories. A lot of players come to us and we step up the intensity. More needs to be done in the territories. But that is something we have been saying for a long time," Simmons told ESPNCricinfo.

Meanwhile, South Africa will welcome back Temba Bavuma from his finger injury as he takes over captaincy duties from Dean Elgar for the T20Is. For West Indies, veteran Kieron Pollard will take over the captaincy reins from Kraigg Brathwaite for the five-match series.
