England vs South Africa 2nd ODI: Score, Highlights, Commentary and Status

eng-vs-SA

It’s unfortunate that the opening match of the ODI series got abandoned. But the good thing is that we’re going ahead with this series. This is the second ODI, which is actually a compensation for the postponed opening ODI originally on Friday. Both teams would be keen to get out on the field. England received a morale-boosting 3-0 win in the T20Is and would want to continue that in the ODIs. The World Champions will be without the services of Stokes, Archer, Sam Curran and Jordan, all of whom have been rested for the second leg of the white-ball tour. As far as their pace battery goes, Topley could partner with the likes of Woakes, Tom Curran and Mark Wood. Liam Livingstone could also get a chance to make his ODI debut. For the hosts, they look dispirited after the whitewash in the T20Is earlier and would be looking to make an early statement in the ODIs to redeem themselves. However, they have to contend with the major absence of Rabada, out of the ODIs due to injury and Faf du Plessis, who has been rested. And therefore a lot rests on the likes of Nortje, Ngidi and Sipamla to step up. The Saffas have retained more of the same squad for the ODIs as well and they have multiple options to pick from in both the departments. Should be an interesting battle but expect England to come out on top, yet again.
