Match Preview

After a nerve-wracking victory in the recent outing, hosts South Africa would be beaming with confidence and would ploy hard to seal a win in the coming game, and grab hold of the 3-match T20Is. Although the Protea batted decently, with skipper Quinton de Kock (31) and Temba Bavuma (43) scoring the bulk of runs, it was the bowling attack spearheaded by pacer Lungi Ngidi (3/30) which turned the tide in their favor in the much-coveted encounter.

Meanwhile, Eoin Morgan-led England will be backing themselves to come back stronger in the must-win game. The loss would have hurt the English side considering they couldn’t amass 7 runs in the last over. The likes of Moeen Ali (1/22), Adil Rashid (1/23), Jason Roy (70), and skipper Eoin Morgan (52) were the top-performers for the tourists and would be banked to emulate a similar show in the second T20I.

Teams Preview

South Africa

At one point, it didn’t look like South Africa would manage past 170-run mark if not for the performances from skipper de Kock (31), Temba Bavuma (43) and Rassie van der Dussen (31). The trio would be the vital cogs for Protea in the highly-anticipated game as they possess the ability to score a belter of runs in a span of few overs. In case they falter at cheap totals, the hosts would then rely on the duo of David Miller and Andile Phehlukwayo for getting the team to a respectable position.

Miller holds an experience over 73 T20s and being a potent player in the shortest format, he would be backed to go berserk from the very delivery. In the bowling department, the pace duo of Dale Steyn and Lungi Ngidi can be a menace in the power plays. Ngidi was the top-performer from the Protea bowling unit and will be a player to keep an eye on.

Spinner Tabraiz Shami is among the finest T20 bowlers in the present era of cricket. He will be entrusted with the task of getting the breakthroughs in the middle-overs.

South Africa Actual Playing XI:

Quinton de Kock, Rassie van der Dussen, Tabraiz Shamsi, B Hendricks, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Andile Phehlukwayo, JJ Smuts, Lungi Ngidi, Temba Bavuma, Bjorn Fortuin

England

Openers Jason Roy and Jos Buttler would hold the key for England in the must-win encounter. Roy was the top-scorer for England, and although Buttler looked in a good nick he couldn’t score much in the previous outing. Jonny Bairstow is another vital prospect who has to don an aggressive role with the bat in the coming game else a victory looks scarce for England.

Southpaw Eoin Morgan held the innings from an end and the same time he was going for the big-hits which helped the English come close to the total. All-rounders Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali were dismissed for low totals in the last outing and would be itching to score runs in the forthcoming bout.

Bowling wise, spinner Adil Rashid bagged economical figures in the previous game and along with pacer, Chris Jordan would look to wreak havoc amidst the conditions of Kingsmead. Tom Curran was quite expensive in the 1st T20I and there’s a strong hunch that his brother Sam Curran would be making his way into the playing XI. Mark Wood and Ben Stokes hit the right lengths and will be expected to scalp the early dismissals.

Venue Details

The wicket at Kingsmead is usually batter friendly with the average 1st innings total being 150. With the ball not coming onto that nicely amidst the overcast conditions, one can expect 170 as a par total.

Toss Prediction

The toss winning team should look to bat first on this occasion. Clear skies in the first half of play are something the batting team should look to capitalize on.

Winning Prediction

Although England lost the previous contest, one can certainly bank on them to come back stronger and level the series 1-1 at Kingsmead. Be it the bowling wise or batting wise, England looks like a formidable side on paper and with some of the star players namely Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan enjoying a terrific run in the white-ball format.

South Africa can pose a threat, but, the lack of hitting ability is something that could cost them the game at Kingsmead.

We are expecting England to win!
