Match Preview

England had a forgetful day at Newlands wherein they competed in their first one-dayer after the 2019 World Cup events, only to lose out by a margin of 7-wickets at the hands of Protea. It was a surprise considering England look like a far potent side on paper, with some of the players enjoying a terrific form in the white-ball cricket played off late. Both batting and bowling didn’t look up to the mark for the tourists, considering they possessed the likes of Root, Roy, and the Curran brothers in the armory. For the Englishmen, it all boils down to how they perform at Durban if they are eyeing to grab hold of the 3-match ODIs.

South Africa, on the other hand, had a day to cheer considering they went against the odds and dominated a far competitive side in the much-hyped encounter. Not many would have expected the hosts to decimate an in-form England in the one-dayers, taking into account, South Africa didn’t have the services of Faf du Plessis and Kagiso Rabada in their attack.

Teams Preview

South Africa

Skipper Quinton de Kock (105) looked like a man in possession as he tore apart the rival attack with his blistering innings hitting 11-fours and a six in the process. If not for him and Tenda Bavuma (98), the hosts could have lost out the battle and thus a chance to gain back the trust of the public after the 3-1 Test defeat. Although Bavuma missed out on a golden chance of scoring his maiden ODI ton, the fact that his contribution in the middle managed to thwart a far potent England and take a 1-0 lead in the series is something that would have offered him a greater relief. Reeza Hendricks will be itching to get back his form in the forthcoming feud and with Rassie van der Dussen could be a vital cog for the hosts at Kingsmead. In the middle-order, David Miller will be the biggest threat for Eoin Morgan & Co, as if he gets going, one can surely expect a flurry of sixes and fours being hit across the fence.

Bowling wise, spinner Tabraiz Shamsi (3/38) was the most economical bowler and the highest wicket-taker for Protea in the first ODI. While he will spearhead the bowling attack for the hosts, one could also anticipate the likes of JJ Smuts and Lutho Sipamla to come up with impressive numbers as was visible in the previous ODI. Left-arm pacer Beuran Hendricks was a bit expensive, but one can expect him to wreak havoc alongside Lungi Ngidi and Andile Phehlukwayo in the second one-dayer.

South Africa Actual Playing XI:

England

Openers Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow need to deliver a terrific start for England to be in a competitive space. Both of them are exceptional hitters who once set could get a belter of runs in a matter of few deliveries. Along with Joe Root at the top-order, the tourists would fancy their chances of posting in excess of 250, as it a must-win game for them and the top-order trio are by far, one of the finest cricketers in the white-ball format at present.

Southpaw Eoin Morgan needs to come up with a winning knock else it would be a lost cause for the tourists. In the middle order, Joe Denly was a treat to watch in the last ODI as he cleared the fences without breaking a sweat. With Denly and Morgan, one could expect decent partnerships at the crucial stages which could put them in a winning spot at Kingsmead.

Chris Woakes played brilliantly in the recent outing wherein he scored 40 off 42 deliveries in the 1st innings and scalped 1/36 in the second. All-rounders Tom Curran and Sam Curran couldn’t muster noteworthy exhibitions and would be itching to come back stronger in the must-win duel. Pacers Matthew Parkinson and Chris Jordan will be the vital cogs in the bowling attack as they will look to get the swing and seam early on in the game.

Bad weather is being foretold with sure shot chances of rain in the second innings. Clouds are going to hover around the stadium throughout with the temperature gliding between 24-26 degrees Celsius.

Venue Details

The wicket at Kingsmead isn’t a high scoring one with 239 as the average 1st innings total which goes down to 184 in the second innings. With the overcast conditions prevalent throughout and slight showers a few hours prior to the game, one could expect 250-260 as fighting total at this venue.

Toss Prediction

The toss winning team should capitalize early on in the contest and thus, it is likely they will opt to bat first at Kingsmead. Bowlers will play a major role in the coming contest, while the batsmen would simply look to clear the ropes from the very moment.

Winning Prediction

Although South Africa put up a ripper of a show at Newlands to clinch a 1-0 lead in the one-dayers, one could still vouch for England to bounce back in the game at Durban. Protea is overly dependent on the trio of de Kock, Bavuma and Shamsi to get them past the winning limits, while it is the combined effort that would guide England to their first win of the series.
