ENG Playing 11: In the Match 39 of the T20 World Cup 2021, the England team will face off the South Africa team. They were the first team to qualify for the semifinals of the tournament.
They pulled off a clinical victory in their last league game against Sri Lanka. After a collapse in the first 10 overs, Jos Buttler (101) and Eoin Morgan (40) helped the team to post a strong total of 163 runs on the board. Then the likes of Jordan, Rashid, and Moeen Ali picked 2 wickets each, which paved way for England team securing victory by 26 runs and getting a much needed boost to their efforts and will hope to continue the same performances.
The England team will be a confident squad with 4 wins in 4 matches and are expected to enter the semifinals stage undefeated as well. This is due to the fact that they are playing with the best possible combinations of players, who are proven performers in this format. But, the injury of pacer Tymal Mills might hurt them, as he was the joint leading wicket taker for the team in the tournament. Another speedster Mark Wood is expected to replace him in the 11 for their fixture against South Africa. While captain is expected to keep trusting his key batters like Malan and Bairstow.
