Cricket Free Tips | ENG vs SA 2022: 2nd ODI


ENG vs SA Match Details

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

Date: Friday, 22 July 2022

Time: 17:30 (GMT+5.5) / 18:00 (GMT+6)

Format: ODI

Venue: Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester

ENG vs SA Preview

  • In the opening ODI, South Africa defeated England by 62 runs.
  • The SA triumph was led by Rassie Van der Dussen (134 runs) and Aiden Markram (77 runs and 2 wickets).
  • In their last 5 games, England has only achieved 2 victories at Old Trafford, Manchester.


On Friday afternoon at Old Trafford in Manchester, the second of three one-day international matches between England and South Africa begins. Tuesday in Durham, England’s Test captain Ben Stokes played his farewell ODI as his team suffered a 62-run defeat. With a score of 333-5, South Africa never appeared to be losing.  The game kicks off around 13:30 local time.

Due to their recent struggles in this format, England’s batting, bowling, and fielding will all be weakened by Ben Stokes’ retirement. They still possess a lot of players of the highest caliber, though, and will be eager to recover.

South Africa was very outstanding in Durham and will always pose a threat on their best day. Their biggest problem right now is consistency, so it will be intriguing to see if they can string together victories.

ENG vs SA Weather Report

It will be partly cloudy outside with a 70% probability of rain. It will be between 14 and 20 °C in temperature. At 5 to 10 km/h, the wind will be blowing from the west.

ENG vs SA Match Toss Prediction

Teams have successfully chased the goal 29 times in 56 ODIs. The average score in the first inning is 202, 26 greater than in the second. The toss winner should choose to bowl first. A low-scoring contest is anticipated.

ENG vs SA Pitch Report

India reached home with 7.5 overs left in the third ODI of the series last weekend despite losing early wickets. On a pitch with a lot of pace and bounce, we anticipate a par score to be higher than 300.

England Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Ben Stokes must be replaced in the starting XI, therefore England will make at least one change. We anticipate the addition of David Willey to the lineup and an increase in the amount of on-field pressure placed on Moeen Ali and Liam Livingstone. Reece Topley, who had a break in Durham, will join the team once more.
