South Africa vs England Match Details

Match: South Africa vs England, 2nd ODI | England tour of South Africa 

Date: Sunday, 29 Jan 2023

Time: 13:00 (GMT+5) / 13:30 (GMT+5.5) / 14:00 (GMT+6)

Format: ODI

Venue: Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein  

South Africa vs England Preview

  • Quinton de Kock should be watched closely. He has appeared to be in great shape and is due for a huge one.
  • In the first ODI, Jason Roy finally overcame his slump and smashed a resurgent hundred.
  • Jofra Archer’s much-anticipated comeback for England saw him go for 81 runs in 10 overs.


South Africa has moved up one spot and is currently in 10th place in the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League after defeating England in the first of a three-match ODI series at Bloemfontein’s Mangaung Oval. In other words, this ODI series will have an impact on the Proteas’ ability to qualify for the 2023 World Cup in India.

Because he hasn’t led the Proteas to an ODI series victory since South Africa easily defeated India 3-0 in early 2022, Temba Bavuma’s leadership is under intense pressure. The South African players’ most recent performance, though, demonstrated how stoically they can endure pressure from their opponents.

Since November 2022, England had not played an ODI match. That changed after the defeat on January 27. Given that the English team has yet to identify their ideal lineup for the 50-over format, they might finish second in the second ODI at the same location.

South Africa vs England Weather Report, Toss Prediction, and Pitch Report

There is no likelihood that the match would be interrupted by rain, and the temperature would again range between 29 and 33 degrees.

Given that team’s bowling first has won 16 of the 32 games at the Mangaung Oval, South Africa will feel very safe choosing to bat first in the second ODI. Additionally, England will also be hoping to bat first considering how the ball bounced in the second innings of the first ODI.

At Mangaung Oval, the batting average is 240. However, each team will want their batter to set the score high with the pitch playing slowly in the beginning because of the aggressive character and attacking style of players on both sides. The seamers had considerable assistance thanks to this pitch.

South Africa Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Keshav Maharaj might take Tabraiz Shamsi’s position for the second ODI even though no players were hurt in the first ODI. Maharaj may not be the best usage for Bavuma, even though the spinner may be key in the second half of the innings.

Recent form – W L L W NR  

South Africa’s Probable XI

Temba Bavuma (c), Quinton de Kock (wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Sisanda Magala, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Keshav Maharaj, and Wayne Parnell.

England News & Probable Playing XIs

Jofra Archer didn’t perform up to the standards he had previously set, but it would still be preferable for him to play in the second ODI. Chris Woakes will probably be reinstated before it’s too late, it seems.
