England vs South Africa: England and South Africa are currently locking horns with South Africa in the three-match ODI series. The Proteas have taken a 1-0 lead in the series after they thumped the hosts by 62 runs. It’s quite obvious that fans would be in for an exciting contest when both the teams will play again. While the visitors would be looking to seal the series, England on the other hand would want to level the series.
The second ODI between England and South Africa is slated to take place in Manchester on Friday (22nd July). Ahead of the clash, the Keshav Maharaj-led side has suffered a blow as all-rounder Andile Phehlukwayo has been ruled out of the remaining two games.
Phehlukwayo suffered a head injury during the first game and was taken off the field. The all-during England’s chase had a collision with skipper Keshav Maharaj following which he was seen having a bruised chin.
He was then taken for the assessment following which it was revealed that he shows signs of concussion and was replaced by Dwaine Pretorius. Phehlukwayo is now likely to be available for the T20I series.
It is expected that South Africa will continue their winning combination. And in place of Andile Phehlukwayo, it is expected that Dwaine Pretorius will hold his place.
Here’s SA’s probable playing XI:
Quinton de Kock (wk), Janneman Malan, Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Keshav Maharaj (c), Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi
