Reece Topley

Reece Topley, the left-arm seamer, has been in great form in what is being touted as his one of best comeback in the sport after suffering from so many injuries. He did well against India and also picked wickets against South Africa in ODIs. With the contest returning to T20Is, Topley would love to prefer delivering his four overs and picking wickets for his side.

Quinton de Kock recent stats in T20Is

Quinton de Kock was in the 90s when rain stopped play in the third ODI against England. He has found his mojo yet again and will be itching to get on the field for his side. De Kock boasts of a strike-rate of 134.60 in his T20I career and a lot will depend on how he performs in the opening game of the three-match T20I series.

 Anrich Nortje recent stats in T20Is

 Anrich Nortje has enjoyed some great success in T20 format over the last couple of years including the Indian Premier league (IPL). He would be keen on replicating the same for South Africa with the T20 World Cup approaching later this year. He has so far picked 22 wickets in the shortest format at the international level and will be key for the visitors.

Who will win England vs South Africa 1st T20I today match?

England are going through some tough times in white-ball cricket having lost T20I and ODI series to India. Even the ODI series against South Africa ended in a draw. Jos Buttler has already hinted at a very hectic schedule and intensity not being at the highest with quick turnaround between the matches. Having said that, England players will be looking to start the series well which hasn’t been the case in this white-ball summer.

South Africa, on the other hand, have embarked on this tour after resting for a few weeks. They did well on the tour of India in the T20I series and performed exceptionally well in the ODI series as well. The Proteas are certainly in good spirits after doing well in the ODIs

England and South Africa have faced each other in 22 T20Is with the former side winning 11 matches while the Proteas have emerged victorious on 10 occasions.

South Africa are the favourites to win this encounter.
