South Africa vs West Indies
The South Africa vs West Indies match in ICC World Cup 2019 will be held at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground, Southampton.
Meanwhile, South Africa coach Ottis Gibson admitted on Saturday he was frustrated to have to deal with the row over AB de Villiers’ controversial late offer to play in the World Cup.
It has emerged that De Villiers contacted Gibson and South Africa captain Faf du Plessis to tell them he was willing to come out of retirement.
But it was agreed that De Villiers, who retired from international cricket last year, had left it too late to be called up because it would not have been fair to other players who had featured against Pakistan and Sri Lanka ahead of the World Cup.
De Villiers’ offer had remained under wraps until after South Africa’s World Cup campaign plunged into crisis with a third successive defeat against India on Wednesday.

Having lost all three matches, Gibson’s side head into Monday’s clash likely needing to win their remaining six games to have a chance of making the semi-finals.
Asked how the situation with De Villiers developed at his pre-match press conference in Southampton on Saturday, Gibson revealed he had spoken to the 35-year-old and told him he should have made it clear he was available earlier in the year.
“AB called me. I think it was the morning that the squad was going to be announced. A lot of other things had gone on before that, of course,” he said.
“We had decided already that he left it too late because the door was left open up until December, and then after that to come this late in the day,” he added.
