South Africa vs England 2nd Test Match Preview

SA vs ENG Dream11 Match Prediction: After ending the year on a high, South Africa will be looking to carry forward the momentum and begin the New Year in style when they host England for the second test match at Newlands, Cape Town tomorrow. The hosts secured 107 runs win in the first test match at Centurion breaking their five-match losing streak and will be on confidence in Cape Town as it is a venue where they have won each of the previous four Tests. The visitors, on the other hand, have failed to perform as a unit and are also missing out their first choices in the likes of Chris Woakes and Jack Leach. Jofra Archer is the new addition to that list due to sore elbow. So, will the Proteas maintain their winning streak at Cape Town or will it be England having the last laugh? The coin will be flipped at 01:30 PM IST.
