Venue: Diamond Oval, Kimberley  

South Africa vs England Preview

  • Temba Bavuma hit a brave century to help South Africa win the series against England.
  • Another victory in the last ODI will help South Africa gain valuable World Cup Super League points.
  • Jos Buttler is gradually getting into form. Expect him to score big in the third ODI.


The tenacious South African squad won the second ODI at Mangaung Oval with their most successful ODI chase against England. On the other hand, The Proteas at De Beers Stadium in Kimberley, have a chance to complete a clean sweep and maybe boost their place in the ICC World Cup 2023 in India.

The home team is full of confidence, as evidenced by their performance in the second ODI. South Africa will be eager to give England another clean sweep in Kimberley, knowing their spot in the upcoming World Cup is at stake.

It is safe to say that Jos Butler’s team really improved in the second ODI, but now they are down 0-2 and have nothing left to play for but their honor. The away team will be attempting to do all possible to defeat the Proteas at Kimberley in order to snap their ODI losing run.

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

Fortunately, there are no forecasts for rain on February 1st, even if it is predicted to occur a day earlier. The temperature may range from 30 to 18 degrees while the matches are being played.

Given the upcoming location, the specific wicket will motivate each captain to desire to bat first. A total between 280 and 300 runs should be considered above average.

The pacers will always benefit from this pitch for surprise bounce and swing. Both sides’ batsmen will need to bring their “A-Game” because this is a difficult surface to bat on.

South Africa Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Since the batting order has remained the same, the bowling staff may face some alterations. For the final ODI, Kagiso Rabada and Sisanda Magala are probably going to come back. Keshav Maharaj, though, could still be selected before Tabraiz Shamsi.
