Teams Preview

South Africa Preview

South Africa chased down the target of 259 runs in clinical fashion on the back of De Kock and Bavuma`s performance. De Kock (107 runs) and Bavuma (98 runs) shared a 173-run partnership for the second wicket to almost seal the chase. Rassie Van Der Dussen came up with a crucial 30+ cameo to finish without any hiccups. Tabraiz Shamsi claimed 3 wickets and never allowed England`s middle order to settle. Earlier, JJ Smuts and Andile Phehlukwayo dismissed the openers by the 10-over mark to set the tone of the match. Hendricks and Simapla contributed with a wicket each towards the fag end of the innings.

Key Players:

Quinton De Kock – De Kock took the MoM award in debut captaincy ODI match with a century. He was also awarded MoM in his first captaincy T20I match. De Kock is regarded as one of the future leaders of the South African team.

Lungi Ngidi – Ngidi came back to the team after an injury layoff and looks leaner, fitter & hungrier. He will look take wickets consistently and register himself as one of the main speedsters in the team.

South Africa Predicted Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock (c & wk), Reeza Hendricks, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, JJ Smuts, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Beuran Hendricks, Lungi Ngidi, Lutho Sipamla, Tabraiz Shamsi

England Preview

England's top order kept getting starts but failed to convert it into a big score. Jason Roy and Johnny Bairstow started briskly with a 50-run opening partnership but then collapsed to a modest 83/4 and then to 131/6. Joe Denly`s 87 and Chris Woakes 40 then resurrected the innings and took their total to 258 runs. England`s bowling was toothless without the services of Liam Plunkett, Ben Stokes, and Jofra Archer. Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, and Joe Root picked a wicket each. Mathew Parkinson was preferred over Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.

Key Players:

Joe Denly – Joe Denly took their team from 131/6 to 254/8 when he was dismissed. He scored 87 runs off 113 balls with 6 fours and 2 sixes. He will look to establish himself in the middle order.

Chris Woakes – Woakes had an all-round match scoring 40 runs with bat and bowling figures of 9-0-36-1. He has to lead the pace attack in the absence of Plunkett and Wood and will look to guide other bowlers around him.

England Predicted Playing XI:

Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Joe Denly, Tom Banton, Sam Curran, Chris Woakes, Tom Curran, Chris Jordan, Matthew Parkinson
