The hosts successfully chased the Three Lions’ 342-run target in the last game to seal the One Day series which has kept their 2023 ODI World Cup qualification hopes intact. They now need to ensure a clean sweep against England to solidify their chances of playing the quadrennial event in India in October.
England, on the other hand, have been very ordinary throughout this series. In fact, they suffered their second successive ODI series loss. The previous one came against arch-rivals Australia where the Three Lions were blanked 0-3 down under just less than 10 days after their T20 World Cup triumph.
The Jos Buttler-led side will now be looking forward to salvaging pride and avoiding a whitewash by all means as they aim to turn the tables on a strong Proteas unit.

SA vs ENG Pitch Report
A score in the range of 290 to 300 runs could turn out to be an above-par total at Kimberley. The pacers will be expected to make a tremendous impact on this wicket and keep the batters guessing with the uneven bounce and swing. Batting will be very tough on this surface. Thus, the captain winning the toss would prefer to bat first and put runs on the board.

Rassie van der Dussen:
