England will host South Africa for the second ODI at Old Trafford, Manchester on 22nd July from 5:30 pm onwards. South Africa is leading the 3-match ODI series 1-0. A spectacular effort by the batters followed by an instrumental bowling attack ensured a 63 runs victory for South Africa.
Batting first SA comfortably passed 300 runs mark after half-centuries from Janneman Malan, Aiden Markram, and a century from Rassie Van der Dussen. Except for Liam Livingstone (2 wickets), the English bowling attack looked pale. The hosts had a good but slow start. Except for their top-order batters, everyone failed to score. England got bowled out on 271 in 47th over. Anrich Nortje took 4 wickets for 53 runs.
England now have lost 3 out of their last 4 ODIs. They are on the verge of losing back-to-back ODI series at home. They lost to India 2-1. On the other hand, SA are doing great in absence of Temba Bavuma and Kagiso Rabada.
Looks like the busy schedule is taking a toll on English cricket. Playing 11 games including a Test and 3 T20Is in a span of 1 month of the hottest English summer has given declining results. And skipper Jos Buttler has no answer but to keep continuing, now without Ben Stokes who retired from the ODIs after the first game. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow will open the innings for England. They put a 100-run partnership in the first game. Bairstow scored 63 off 71 balls to continue his good form this summer. Joe Root finally broke the poor form to add 86 runs on the scorecard in 77 balls. It was unlike of him to score over the strike rate of 100.
The middle-order failure was the actual reason for the loss for England in a 300 runs-plus chase. After Stokes got out on just 5, Buttler, Livingstone, and Ali added just 25 runs in 30 deliveries. With Stokes's retirement, David Willey’s chances are brightened to get back in the playing 11. Willey has a bowling average below 20 on Old Trafford. The all-rounder played some crucial innings against India. He can definitely continue taking the place of Stokes in the future.
Bowling wise it was a super lethargic effort from England. But you can give credit to the heat in England. England went ahead with Sam Curran, Matty Potts, and Brydon Carse by resting the leading wicket-taker of the India series and their most in-form bowler Reese Topley. Topley took 9 wickets at an average of 9. His 6 wickets for 24 at The Lords helped England register their only win. Hopefully, he makes a comeback in the second ODI. Adil Rashid’s comeback didn’t go well as he gave more than 6 runs in over. But Rashid is the leading wicket-taker at Old Trafford. He has 9 wickets in 7 matches. Surprisingly it was Liam Livingstone who took 2 wickets in the first ODI to top the English bowling attack.
Key Players: Jonny Bairstow, Jos Butler, Adil Rashid.

Keshav Maharaj handled his team very gracefully in the first ODI in the absence of Temba Bavuma. He not only made crucial changes in the bowling but also broke the 100 runs partnership between Roy and Bairstow which started tumbling the English batting. Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan will open the innings once again. Malan who scored a half-century in the first innings now averages 59 in 17 international innings. He has 3 centuries and 4 fifties in his short but futuristic career.
Oh, God! What a career Rassie Van der Dussen is having. Dussen played a knock of 134 - his highest ODI score. He now has 1499 runs in just 30 innings at an average of 74.95. The right-handed batter averages over 75 against England - a stern warning to the home side. SA’s middle-order is gelling well after two ODI series this year. Aiden Markram came up with 77 runs in 61 deliveries in the first ODI. The all-rounder also took 2 wickets (Bairstow and Stokes) for 25 runs. With no other all-rounder in the team, Markram’s form will be crucial for SA to win this series.
With Rabada not available, SA’s pace attack will be led by Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, and Andile Phehlukwayo. Nortje took 4 wickets in the first ODI for 53 runs. He was wicketless in his first three overs for 26 runs. But cleared the tail-enders cheaply along with Joe Root who was possessing a threat to the target. Keshav Maharaj and Tabrej Shamsi will be the spin duo for SA. England struggled a lot against the spin on the pace favorable pitch. The duo gave just 5 runs every over.
Key Players: Rassie Van der Dussen, Anrich Nortje, Janneman Malan
Kehav Maharaj (C), Janneman Malan, Henrich Klassen, Quinton de Kock (wk), Andile Phehlukwayon, David Miller, Anrich Nortje, Dwaine Pretorius, Tabraiz Shamsi, Lungi Ngidi, Rassie van der Dussen.

The weather will be partly cloudy with a 70% chance of rain. The temperature will range between 14 and 20°C. The wind will be flowing from the west at 5-10 kmh. The pitch assist pace bowlers with a good amount of bounce. The wicket will be tougher for the batters in the second innings.
The 2nd ODI between England and South Africa will be played at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester. The venue holds a capacity of 19000 spectators and has hosted 82 tests, 56 ODIs & 11 T20Is so far. It is the home ground for Lancashire Cricket Club.
In 56 ODIs, teams have successfully chased the target on 29 occasions. The average first innings score is 202, 26 more than the second. The team winning the toss should Bowl first. A low-scoring game is expected.
Even if the stats are not aligning towards England, they are seen as the favorites to win the second battle. With Reece Topley and David Willey back in the attack on a bouncy pitch, England's bowling attack will be lethal. The top-order of the home side is back in form. Though in the first ODI, the middle-order failed, it is mostly because of just a day's rest after the India series and the heat wave in England. In the last 5 ODIs between these two, both teams have won twice.
We predict that England will defeat South Africa.
