South Africa vs England Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


A cracking series comes to a conclusion at Centurion on Sunday as South Africa and England battle it out for the series win. There have been three runs between the sides over the two matches so I’m backing the hosts to win against the odds.

In the best batsman market Quinton de Kock is showing superb form while Jason Roy has shown plenty of class in the opening two T20’s for England.

South Africa Form


After winning the 1st T20 South Africa fell two runs short at Kingsmead in the 2nd T20 against England. England scored 204 runs batting first and although it was a stiff total Quinton de Kock smashed 65 runs off 22 balls to give the hosts the edge.

Rassie van der Dussen and Dwaine Pretorius almost got them home but with five runs required from the final three balls the Proteas lost two wickets.

It has been an ultra competitive series and South Africa are superb value for the win at 2.50. De Kock is tipped in the best batsman market at 2.87.

South Africa News


South Africa will likely bring Dale Steyn back for the 3rd T20. With the match being a series decider it is not yet known if they will make any further changes.

England Form


England won the 2nd T20 against South Africa at Kingsmead to level the series at 1-1. After being sent in to bat Jason Roy scored 40 runs to get England off to a magnificent start. Ben Stokes continued that momentum through the middle overs with 47 runs while Moeen Ali played a superb innings of 39 runs off 11 balls to take England to 204 runs.

South Africa looked to be on track for victory but it was Mark Wood who pulled them back with a great spell of bowling. Eventually the hosts fell two runs short on 202 runs.

England have very short odds of 1.53 which is surprising considering the competitiveness of the series. Jason Roy can however be backed at 4.00 to be England’s top scorer.

England News


England went unchanged into the 2nd T20 but another failure from Joe Denly could eventually see Dawid Malan make his way into the side.

South Africa vs England Head to Head


England have won four of their last six T20’s against South Africa with the current series being shared one apiece. England won the last one by two runs after posing a total of 204 runs and then restricting South Africa to 202 runs at Kingsmead.

South Africa vs England Betting Odds


South Africa are valued at 2.50 with England at 1.53 for the win. Quinton de Kock is the favourite in the best batsman market for the Proteas at 2.87 followed by Temba Bavuma on 4.00.

For England Jason Roy is backed at 4.00 in the best batsman market with Jos Buttler at 4.33.

South Africa vs England Match Up


It has been an incredible series thus far with the two T20’s going down to the final ball. The batsmen fired again in Durban but England will be concerned about their inability to keep Quinton de Kock quiet. For South Africa, Jason Roy is of concern as he has gotten England off to two great starts.

Roy and De Kock could hold the key to which team wins the series in what is expected to be another high scoring affair.
