South Africa will be desperate to bounce back and win the 2nd T20 against England in Paarl on Sunday. Paarl generally produces very good batting surfaces which should play into England’s hands.

South Africa Form


South Africa lost their fifth T20 on home soil in seven matches on Friday against England. It all looked so promising for South Africa as they piled on 179 runs batting first.

Quinton de Kock scored 30, Faf du Pleasses 58 and Rassie van der Dussen 37 runs as the main contributors. George Linda got the bowling effort off to a good start by dismissing Jason Roy in the first over.

That was backed up by the other bowlers as the hosts had England struggling on 34-3. The bowlers thereafter took the foot off the pedal which allowed England back in, and to eventually win it by five wickets.

South Africa Team News


George Linda bowled beautifully on debut and should retain his spot. Playing in Paarl the hosts are likely to go with two spinners again, but star bowlers Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi will need to produce better performances.

England Form


England won the 1st T20 against South Africa by five wickets at Newlands with four balls to spare. Batting first, South Africa managed what looked like a winning total of 179 runs.

England were soon 34-3 but Jonny Bairstow and Ben Stokes batted brilliantly to take England close to home. Bairstow remained not out on 86 runs while Stokes made 37.

Jason Roy got out for a duck while Jos Buttler only managed seven runs. Dawid Malan struck the ball beautifully for his 19 runs but through his wicket away. 

England Team News


The Jos Buttler experiment at the top of the order isn’t quite paying off but whether England will give up on it just yet remains to be seen. He may have to move down to accommodate Tom Banton. 

South Africa vs England Head to Head


England have won four of their last six T20 matches against South Africa. This includes a 2-1 series win in South Africa in the 2019/20 season.

In their last match England chased down 179 runs to win by five wickets at Newlands in the 1st T20 of this series.

South Africa vs England Odds


South Africa are underdogs at 2.37 with England paying 1.57 at bet365.

Quinton de Kock can be backed at 3.25 to be South Africa’s best batsman while Jos Buttler is priced at 3.75 in the same market for England.

South Africa vs England Match Up


South Africa’s batsmen did the trick in the 1st T20 and looked to be heading to victory as the bowlers started well. England’s long batting line-up however proved key and that will be the challenge for the Proteas going forward in the series.
