South Africa vs England 1st ODI: South Africa men and England men are set to face each other in the first game of the three-match One Day International (ODI) series hosted by the Proteas. The match will be played on Friday (January 27) at 4:30 PM (IST) at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein.
South Africa recently lost the three-match Test series against Australia, away from home. And before that, the side had to endure a disappointing run in the men’s T20 World Cup 2022. The host will aim to build a stronger unit, particularly in the 50-over format, ahead of the upcoming ODI Cricket World Cup in India.
On the other hand, England are the current world champions in both white-ball formats. The Jos Buttler-led men will assemble and will aim to carry on the momentum they’ve had for the last few years.
As this contest is set to commence, here’s the weather update from Bloemfontein, where South Africa vs England 1st ODI game will be played.
