SA vs ENG 3rd ODI: Team Overview


Adil Rashid left the England camp temporarily for personal reasons, however, he is now fully recovered and rejoins the team. It might be challenging for him to make the starting lineup given that Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone are currently handling the spin duties and playing outstandingly in the series against India.

The addition of four-seam bowlers in the starting XI also improves England’s field balance because a specialist spin bowler would require a fifth spot. Because they have yet to choose the main strike bowler in front of the World Cup, which is scheduled for next year, England may be seen as having some seam bowling weaknesses. For the past year or two, they have chosen the lineup for their bowling division utilizing a musical chairs style.

David Willey and Sam Curran appear to be the current front-runners due to their adaptability and versatility. Willey has demonstrated great batting performance while Curran, who has fully recovered from an injury, has not yet ignited the format.

South Africa    

Except for their skipper and pace bowler, who was benched owing to fitness concerns, South Africa has chosen a nearly full-strength lineup. Kagiso Rabada will not play in the ODI series, and Temba Bavuma has an elbow injury from the India tour. In Bavuma’s absence, Keshav Maharaj, a former president of South Africa, will take over. Rabada was the only bowler to exhibit danger during South Africa’s previous ODI series against Bangladesh and to secure a five-wicket haul.

But now that he’s rested, the other bowlers must take the initiative. Recent runs scored by Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, Quinton De Kock, and others give them the illusion of being a little more composed at the plate.
