Tough test for West Indies

Defending champions West Indies will face a stern test when they take on South Africa in the second semifinal of the ICC Champions Trophy in Jaipur on Thursday.
A lot, however, will depend on the condition of the pitch at the Sawai Man Singh stadium. South Africa fielding coach Jonty Rhodes put the Proteas through the paces at Jaipur on Wednesday. This is surely one are where the South Africans think that they are number one, even ahead of Australia. West Indies' fielding like everything else can be very good on its day. The defending champions set the tone for this tournament by beating Australia and though they lost an inconsequential game to England, they're still the definite dark horse despite the captain's injury problems. The South African steam rolled past Pakistan in Mohali, bowling them out for 89. But one should not expect an encore of that kind of a score in Jaipur since the wicket at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium looks fairly different. South Africa team (from) : Graeme Smith (Captain), Boeta Dippenaar, Herschelle Gibbs, Jacques Kallis, Justin Kemp, Abraham Devilliers, Mark Boucher, Shaun Pollock, Andrew Hall, Andrew Nel, Makhaya Ntini, Robin Peterseon, Loots Bosman and Charl Langeveldt.
West Indies team (from) : Brian Lara (Captain), Ramnaresh Sarwan, Chris Gayle, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Runako Morton, Dwayne Bravo, Dwayne Smith, Carlton Baugh, Fidel Edwards, Ian Bradshaw, Jerome Taylor, Marlon Samuels, Wavell Hinds.
