South Africa vs England on February 1


An upbeat South Africa will be hosting England in the third and final One Day International at the De Beers Stadium in Kimberley on Wednesday, February 1. The Proteas will be oozing with confidence heading into this fixture having comprehensively sealed the series against the reigning world champions outclassing them first with the ball and then the bat. The hosts successfully chased the Three Lions’ 342-run target in the last game to seal the One Day series which has kept their 2023 ODI World Cup qualification hopes intact. They now need to ensure a clean sweep against England to solidify their chances of playing the quadrennial event in India in October. England, on the other hand, have been very ordinary throughout this series. In fact, they suffered their second successive ODI series loss. The previous one came against arch-rivals Australia where the Three Lions were blanked 0-3 down under just less than 10 days after their T20 World Cup triumph. The Jos Buttler-led side will now be looking forward to salvaging pride and avoiding a whitewash by all means as they aim to turn the tables on a strong Proteas unit.

Best economical pick – Harry Brook made his ODI debut in the first match and smashed 80 off 75 while batting first in the last game. He is in sensational form across formats and should be in your fantasy Team at any cost.

Top captains & vice captains – Rassie van der Dussen has been on a roll in this series and has made it matter with the bat whenever the team needed him the most. He scored a match-winning 111 in the series opener and followed it up with a crucial run-a-ball 38 in the next game where he was also involved in a 97-run second wicket stand with Temba Bavuma. The middle-order sensation would once again be hoping to play a game-changing innings in the final match. The English captain Jos Buttler top-scored 94* off 82 to guide his team to a big total while batting first in the last game. He has scored 130 runs from two innings in this series.

Smart pick – Anrich Nortje has been the standout bowler in the ongoing One Day series and has made an outstanding impact in the wickets column on a regular basis. He has so far registered six scalps to his name and applied brakes on England’s momentum at crucial juncture. He had taken a match-winning four-wicket haul in the series opener to help the Proteas snatch victory from jaws of defeat.

Cautious Pick – Ben Duckett has struggled to make a big impact in white-ball cricket as he has in Test cricket lately. He scored three runs in the first match and added just 20 runs in the second match in this series.

My XI – Rassie van der Dussen (Captain), Jos Buttler (Vice-Captain), Anrich Nortje, Quinton de Kock, Olly Stone, Lungi Ngidi, Harry Brook, Aiden Markram, Sam Curran, David Miller, Temba Bavuma
