SA vs ENG Prediction, 11Wickets Fantasy Cricket Tips: Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update – ODI Series, Match 1 (rescheduled)

South Africa are expected to win this match.

Match Details

The 1st of the three-match ODI series between South Africa and England will be played at Boland Park, Paarl.

This match will start at 4:30 PM IST (1 PM local). It will be live on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD. Live Streaming will be available on Disney + Hotstar.


South Africa and England will lock horns in the first of the three-match ODI series on Sunday. The visitors won the T20I series by 3-0 and the home team will be keen on putting its best foot forward. However, they are very much inexperienced and Quinton de Kock will have to lead from the front. England, on the other hand, have also rested Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer for this series but they still look the favourites to start the series.
