South Africa vs England 2nd ODI Highlights – 29 Jan 2023

Pitch and weather: Sunday’s match will be played on a fresh strip, more towards the middle of the square, but don’t expect too much more life. Flat and relatively slow could mean run-scoring proceeds much like it did on Friday: quickly with the new ball, and slightly more tricky later on. There will also be the added challenge of the heat. It’s a day game, so players will be under 32-degree sun for most of the encounter.

South Africa vs England Highlights today. 2nd ODI, Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein, Sunday 29-1-2023, England tour of South Africa 2023.

South Africa win the toss and bowl

“The wicket might be on the sticky side, put them under pressure with the ball. says Temba Bavuma. Keep challenging ourselves at different stages of the game. The pressure is always there, it comes in different forms. We want to be clear in how we go about it.” Shamsi and Rabada out. Maharaj and Ngidi in. Oh, and Jansen for Magala too, it seems.”
“Looks a good surface,” says Buttler, who is happy to bat first. “Today’s another opportunity to get out there and have a good game against a good opposition. The wicket looks like it’s been prepared for a while. Archer and Willey out, Woakes and Topley in. “Just rotation, a quick turnaround, and a spike in going up to 50 overs.”
