South Africa handed the English side a defeat in the first 50-over contest and took the lead 1-0 in the series. Jos Buttler and co. will look to shift gears and obtain a result in their favour so as to not hand South Africa an unassailable lead.

Rassie van der Dussen impressed on his return to ODI cricket as he notched up an excellent century and helped the Proteas go 1-0 up. For England, it was Jason Roy who fought hard with the bat and kept the Three Lions in the run chase. Roy scored a superb century (113 off 91 balls) and must be breathing easy now as his spot in the ODI team was under the scanner. Jofra Archer would look to impress in the 2nd ODI as he had a game to forget on Friday.

Pitch Report

Bloemfontein will be hosting the 2nd ODI game and it is expected to be a batting-friendly surface. However, there will be some juice on the wicket and pacers will also have some say in the contest. With both teams having power-packed batting line-ups, they might back their batters to hunt down any sort of target. Thus, the side winning the toss might bowl first.

Probable Playing XIs for SA vs ENG

South Africa (SA):

Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Wayne Parnell, Sisanda Magala, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi

England (ENG):

Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Ben Duckett, Harry Brook, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, David Willey, Adil Rashid, Jofra Archer, Olly Stone

Probable Best Performers for SA vs ENG

Probable Best Batter: Jason Roy

Jason Roy played an instrumental knock for the side and laid a solid foundation in their run chase in the previous clash. The opener amassed 113 off 91 deliveries which included 11 fours and four maximums. He will be on the lookout to maintain his form and carve out another majestic knock in the 2nd ODI.

Probable Best Bowler: Jofra Archer

Jofra Arched endured a dismal outing upon his return to the national side in the first match. In his 10 overs, he was battered for 81 runs and was also dismissed for naught while batting. Despite this unlikely performance, he will be aiming to shift gears in the upcoming match and be vital for the side both with the ball and bat.
