South Africa got whitewashed in the three match T20I series and they will be eyeing to make a come back in this series. On the other hand, World Champions England will look to continue their winning run.
Here we are going to discuss strengths and weakness of South Africa as well as of England and will also make our SA vs ENG Today Match Prediction
South Africa’s strength is the batting unit of Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen, Faf du Plessis, Janneman Malan and Temba Bavuma who have been good in this format this year. Dussen and du Plessis did well in the T20I series and once again they will be the key batsman in middle order. Then in the bowling they have Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi and Tabraiz Shamsi who all are wicket takers and all rounder George Linde too has been impressive in the T20I series and he will be the key in this series as well.
On the other hand, England’s strength is the powerful batting unit of Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler who all are match winners and can do anything on their day and then in the bowling Chris Woakes, Mark Wood and Adil Rashid have been top class for a long time and youngsters Olly Stone and Reece Topley too have a lot of talent.
South Africa’s weakness is their batting as the likes of Temba Bavuma, Janneman Malan and Reeza Hendricks haven’t played competitive cricket for a long time so they aren’t in rhythm. Captain de Kock throws his wicket even after getting a good start. And then in the bowling they are without injured Kagiso Rabada and it has weakened their bowling and neither they have a good finisher down the order.
On the other hand, England don’t have much weakness but they’re without Ben Stokes, Jofra Archer and Sam Curran for this series and it might affect their team balance a bit.
Here we are going to discuss both South Africa and England’s playing combination and probable playing XIs who will be useful for making ENG vs SA Dream11 Team
