South Africa, after three losses on the trot, are in a dismal state and will look to their premier player Hashim Amla for guidance when they take on West Indies on Monday in the ICC World Cup. However, the senior player is not in the best of forms and could find the going tough against Oshane Thomas, who has been on a roll in this edition with six wickets in two games. 

Thomas' rippers have often caught the batters unawares. He works up a great trajectory and keeps dishing out bouncers at them, hitting the shorter area on the pitch. 

At Southampton, the new ball often deviates on this track, which will make life tough for Amla. The South African has problems when facing the balls that are targetted at his leg-stump and the ones that grow onto him. He miscues deliveries as well, and Thomas, seeing the form he is in, could get an early breakthrough. 

However, if the batter can stay put and navigate the trciky bowling, he can get under Thomas' nose and get a few runs off him.
