Published:Friday | January 18, 2008 | 11:06 AM

The West Indies will be seeking a series-clinching victory against hosts South Africa at The Wanderers later today in the final match of two 20/20 Internationals.

The Caribbean side won the first fixture in Port Elizabeth on December 16 by five wickets.

The Windies will be without captain Chris Gayle, who is in the final stages of recovery from the fractured thumb sustained during the second Test in Newlands.

His absence will offer an opportunity for either Devon Smith or the newly arrived Sewnarine Chattergoon to make an impact under the lights of The Wanderers.

The West Indies team is coming off a 2-1 defeat in the three Test series.

The game is expected to bowl off at 11am Jamaican time.
