England is having a tough summer so far with performances that have been subpar for the ODI champions but things have started to change. They are much more focused and a mentality shift has been seen in recent games. In the first game of the T20 series, they were ruthless. Jonny Bairstow laid the foundations with his 90 off 53 balls and also contributed by Moeen Ali and Dawid Malan. They were able to score 234 runs. They will need the same performance from the team to win their first series in many months.
England Predicted Lineup
Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Phil Salt, Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley
South Africa fought hard but was not able to get over the line. They were very average in the feilding and dropped four catches which cost them dearly. Bowling was also out of rhythm despite Rabada back in the side. There were few positives though for them with Tristan Stubbs scoring 72 runs off 28 balls only. Lungi Ngidi was another with five wickets in his four overs. They would want to improve the little nuances to get over the line and level up the series.
South Africa Predicted Lineup:
Quinton de Kock (wk), Aiden Markram, Rilee Rossouw, Rassie Van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller (c), Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Tabraiz Shamsi, Anrich Nortje, Keshav Maharaj
