David Miller Stats in ODI

David Miller has revived his career ever since the IPL 2022. He had a great run with the bat for Gujarat Titans and has performed well even in national colors for South Africa in their series against India. Miller is experienced and will hold the key for them batting in the middle order. He will be eager to make an impact against England playing away from home.

Dwaine Pretorius will have an important role to play with the ball in the absence of lead pacer Kagiso Rabada in this series. Pretorius is also handy with the bat and can make some vital contributions coming to bat lower down the order. South Africa will rely on him to deliver in the opening game.

Who will win England vs South Africa 1st ODI Match today match?

England did not have a good outing in the two recent white-ball series against India. They lost the T20I series 2-1 and the ODI series by the same margin as well. The hosts have a strong line-up and will have to make a strong comeback.

South Africa, on the other hand, lost their previous ODI series against Bangladesh 2-1. They last played a five-match T20I series against India which ended in a 2-2 draw. The visitors also miss their key players, which is a bit of a worry for them.

England and South Africa have faced each other in 63 ODIs. The hosts have won 30 games whereas South Africa have won 28 times with one tied contest and four washed-out matches.

England seems to be better balanced and start as favorites to win this match.
