England roped in Mark Wood to replace Chirs Jordan in the last match and we expect them to go with the same playing 11 after a win.

ENG Key Players

  • Phil Salt – Salt played a brilliant match-winning knock of 87 off 47 deliveries against West Indies and he was awarded the player of the match. He is the leading run scorer for England with 147 runs at a good strike rate of 181.
  • Jonny Bairstow – Bairstow played well in the last game to partner with Salt and reach the target. His 48 off 26 deliveries innings will help to get into a form that will be crucial for the England team. He has accumulated 94 runs so far at a strike rate of 159.32.
  • Jofra Archer – Archer is the leading wicket taker along with Adil Rashid, with 6 wickets in 5 matches at an average of 16.83. Archer is bowling at an economy of 6.58 and he is making a good comeback in international cricket.
  • Adil Rashid – Adil Rashid has also picked 6 wickets so far at a decent average of 21.33. He is leading the spin attack for England. He will be crucial if England will be batting first. The deteriorated pitch will assist the spinners.

🏆 England vs South Africa Prediction

England and South Africa have the equal head to head record against each other in T20Is and the record is equal at the overseas venues as well.

England’s bowling line-up is lacking a bit with the leading wicket taker at 6 wickets only while South Africa’s highest wicket taker is at 10. In the batting department, South Africa has struggled but one or the other player always stood up to the occasion to save them but England’s batting line-up will be more confident after 8 wicket win in the last match. England will be more confident in this match as they have tested the ground already.
