England and South Africa will lock horns in the three-match T20I series after the ODI series ended in a stalemate at 1-1. The series opener between the two exciting sides will be hosted by the Bristol County Ground on Thursday, 27th of July.

Jos Buttler’s ambitions of completing his maiden series victory after taking over the reins from the now retired Eoin Morgan were washed out after Rain played spoilsport in the series decider on Sunday. The England camp will be hoping to break their duck in the upcoming T20I series against the visitors.

South Africa, on the other hand, will be buoyed by the batting performance in the third ODI before it was washed out and will be stronger with the addition of menacing quick Kagiso Rabada in the squad.

ENG vs SA Probable Top Performers

Probable best batter of the 1st T20I match

Quinton de Kock: 

The South African opening batter Quinton de Kock was in phenomenal touch in the third ODI before the Rain gods interrupted and put an abrupt end to the proceedings. Runs from his blade will be crucial for the visitors as the visitors will need to score big against a rampaging English side.

Probable best bowler of the 1st T20I match

Reece Topley:

The tall left-arm pacer from Ipswich, Reece Topley, is in the form of his life and has been a constant menace with his impeccable line and lengths in white ball cricket of late. The 28-year-old will enjoy bowling at the surface in Bristol, which can generate variable bounce at times.
