ICC Rankings Test, ODI & T20
The visitor team England have sealed the victory in four test match series with 3-1 against the home team South Africa. After the much-entertained test series, South African viewers are hoping a good comeback in ODI format. It is very important for the home side to win this ODI series because they must have to show something in their skills.
367/5 is the highest total of the venue scored by the home team in 2017 against Sri Lanka. The second-highest total of this Newlands, Cape Town cricket ground is 354/3 again scored by the home team against Kenya in 2001. Against England in 2009 South Africa scored 354/6 and it is the third-highest total of the venue. It means the home team is very strong at this venue.
“The wicket looks pretty good, though it looks like it could be slow. We’re hoping it’ll come on under lights.” JJ Smuts and Lutho Sipamla are the debutants.
“We would probably have chosen to bowl if we were forced,” suggests Eoin Morgan. “Conditions should stay the same throughout the day. It’s a great opportunity to go out and put in a good performance.” Parkinson and Banton are confirmed as debutants, and Chris Woakes has won his 100th cap.
