RSA vs ENG 2nd T20 Match Preview: South Africa and England will all set to lock horns in the second of the 3-match T20I series tonight. The 2nd T20I will be played between England and South Africa (RSA vs ENG) at Boland Park, Paarl and it will commence at 6:00 PM according to IST. Take a look at the RSA vs ENG 2nd T20 match preview, pitch report, playing 11 updates, and live-streaming details as below.
This is the first international assignment for the South African team after their India tour was cut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic earlier this year. South Africa team's batting line-up was successful in posting a challenging score on the board. Veteran batsman Faf du Plessis (58) was the top scorer for the side. The Proteas skipper Quinton de Kock and van der Dussen also gives some useful contributions at the back end of the inning. So, picking these players in your Dream11 fantasy team will give the extra benefit and rewards most of the time.
On the other hand, the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup winner England chase down the stiff total set by the proteas in the last over. Jonny Bairstow notched a fabulous 86* off 48 balls to help his side to clinch victory and took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. The Engish side also has a quality bowling attack, so Morgan and Co have a slight advantage over the African Army, so it seems to be a cracker of a contest tonight. None of the players has injured yet and nothing much changes will require on both sides.
The Boland Park pitch is usually a belter which might make things easier for the batsmen than the Newlands surface did in the opening match. It offers a lot of assistance to the spinners, but it is also a good batting wicket. A total of around 165-170 runs will be a good score at this venue.
It's likely to be cloudy in Boland Park on the day of the match. The temperature is likely to be around 21-23 Degree Celsius during the match. However, no rain is expected during the match.
