cow-analysis

South Africa got off to a good start before losing 2 quick wickets. After that it was Amla and AB show a they both hit centuries and put together a partnership that took the score to 186 in 33 overs and raised the COW to 64%. But some tight bowling towards the end helped West Indies restrict South Africa to 280 in the allocated 48 overs with a COW of 60%.In the West Indies’ innings apart from Gayle and Pollard no one crossed 40 and with no half centuries the Coach would have definitely been worried. Windies were never really in the race as their COW went under 30% in 27th over and they were eventually bowled out for 215.
