England – Team News & Playing 11

England Team News

The hosts could easily boast of having some of the best batsmen in the World at their helm. The likes of Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, and Jos Buttler scored pleasantly in the 5-match ODIs versus Pakistan and in the recently concluded warm-up games. Also, Skipper Eoin Morgana and his apprentice Joe Root looked in a great nick in the practice matches and together, the quintet could be expected to rattle the South African cages if and when needed.

Among the bowlers, Jofra Archer and Chris Woakes could play pivotal roles in restricting the Proteas to a paltry total. Ben Stokes is another potential candidate whose all-round prowess could be of great value to the English side in the much-coveted feud.

The Proteas would be heavily dependent on the firepower offered by the top-order batsmen for laying a colossal total on board. The trio of Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, and Faf du Plessis scored fifty plus each in the lately finished warm-up contests and would be strongly hoped to put up a similar show in the upcoming duel.

Among the bowlers, the performance of Lungi Ngidi, Kagiso Rabada, and Imran Tahir would hold the key for Proteas. The initial couple’s pace prowess could play a significant role in the initial and final overs, while the latter’s spin potency could be of great assistance during the crunch moments of the game.

South Africa Predicted 11

Faf du Plessis (c), Jean-Paul Duminy, Hashim Amla, David Miller, Imran Tahir, Chris Morris, Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram, Kagiso Rabada, Andile Phelukwayo, Lungi Ngidi.
