Cricket Free Tips | ENG vs SA 2022: 1st T20I


ENG vs SA Match Details

Match: England vs South Africa, 1st T20I | South Africa tour of England

Date: Wednesday, 27 July 2022

Time: 23:00 (GMT+5.5) / 23:30 (GMT+6)

Format: T20I

Venue: County Ground, Bristol

ENG vs SA Preview

  • After the third game was postponed due to weather, the ODI series between England and SA was tied at one.
  • England has five victories in the last six T20Is and has won the last three T20I series versus South Africa.
  • De Kock and Rilee Rossouw, the opening partnership, are both in fantastic white ball batting shape. They will likely create the match’s strongest opening duo, according to our prediction.


After the ODI series concluded with the rain ending the final game in Yorkshire, England, and South Africa will resume hostilities on Wednesday night at the County Ground in Bristol for the first T20I. India was the opponent in the final match for both teams in this format. South Africa and England drew 2-2 in the away series, with England losing at home 2-1.  At 18:00 local time, the game will start.

While England has struggled with the bat in their white-ball matches this summer, their bowling has occasionally saved them. When their star batters perform, England is always difficult to defeat.

In the second ODI at Old Trafford, South Africa’s batting was problematic, but in Headingley, they appeared to be in great control. Kagiso Rabada’s comeback will bolster an already potent bowling assault.

ENG vs SA Weather Report

There won’t be any chances of rain and the sky will be largely cloudy. 14 to 22 degrees Celsius will be the temperature range. Wind will be 7-9 km/h and coming from the west.

ENG vs SA Match Toss Prediction

Teams have successfully chased the goal in all three T20Is. Consequently, the team who won the toss should bowl first.

ENG vs SA Pitch Report

Pitch is in the batters’ favor. They find it simpler to choose bowlers as the game goes on. High-score encounters are typical around here.

England Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Jofra Archer, Chris Woakes, and Mark Wood, who are all a part of the home team’s preferred bowling attack in this format, are still absent. Ben Stokes will not play for England either because he was rested for this series due to his heavy workload.

ENG Probable Playing XI

Jos Buttler (c) (wk), Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Moeen Ali, Harry Brook, Adil Rashid, David Willey, Richard Gleeson, Reece Topley

South Africa Team News & Probable Playing XIs

When the rain started falling in Leeds during the final game of the ODI series, the visitors were winning. The return of strike bowler Kagiso Rabada, who missed the ODIs, and Rilee Rossouw, who excelled in the T20 Blast, will provide them a lift. Instead of Temba Bavuma, David Miller will serve as the team’s captain.

England has portrayed itself as unbeatable in white-ball competition during the last few seasons, especially at home. However, this summer, with their bowling resources gone, they suddenly come off as being significantly less confident in all areas. South Africa will undoubtedly give the hosts a hard test, but we are supporting England to prevail in a tight match.
