South Africa v England 1st T20I- Match Preview

South Africa and England have met 18 times in T20I cricket. The Proteas have won nine and the English eight, with one no-result.

Their most recent T20I series was in early 2020, when each team won a match to set up an intriguing decider, which England won.

Where: Newlands, Cape Town

When: Friday, 27 November 2020

Start time: 21:30 IST (16:00 GMT)

Pitch conditions: Three of the last four T20Is at Newlands have been won by the team batting second. The fourth ended in a tie. This is evidently a good ground for chasing rather than setting targets. The ground was recently used for a first-class fixture, which featured several players who will be involved in this series against England.

Weather conditions: The forecast for Friday in Cape Town suggests no rain and temperatures in the early 20 degrees celsius. The region tends to get a lot of wind this time of year. The so-called ‘Cape Doctor’ wind could help the bowlers.

South Africa v England 1st T20I – Team News

The biggest exclusion from the South African squad is Dale Steyn. The uncapped Glenton Stuurman has been preferred to Steyn, who was with the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2020.

David Miller and Faf du Plessis pulled out of the new Lanka Premier League to play in this series. Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje, who were in great form for the Delhi Daredevils at the IPL, are also in the squad.

England have welcomed the return of Ben Stokes, who has returned after supporting his sick father. There was no place in the squad for Tom Banton, though.

Reece Topley is an interesting pick among the seamers, who will be led by Jofra Archer. This is a chance for Archer to again impress in the shortest format, as he has not been included in the ODI squad.

South Africa v England 1st T20I – Betting Tips and Prediction

Here are more free cricket match tips for you. They are based on great odds offered by the best and legal cricket betting sites in India.

Bet on Buttler to Be the Top Batsman for England

Jos Buttler moved up and down the order for the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL 2020. It’s probable he will open the batting in this match and chase early, big runs.

He has voiced his ambition to be a relatively permanent fixture in the T20I in the build-up to next year’s T20 World Cup and is a good pick at 3.74 with 22Bet to be England’s top batsman.

Go for Ngidi to Be the Top Bowler for South Africa

There are shorter odds available in this market for Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada, but Lungi Ngidi is shaping up nicely to be the Proteas’ top bowler at 4.5 with 1xBet.

He didn’t get a lot of opportunity for Chennai in the 2020 IPL, but was solid against England earlier this year – and could capitalise against the same opposition again.

Pick a Century to Be Scored

With Quinton de Kock, Eoin Morgan and others back from the big-hitting exploits of the IPL, we might see someone ton up in this match.

Nobody has yet struck a T20I century at this ground, but some have come relatively close. The pitch is fresh and conditions primed for the first time for this to happen at an attractive price of 8.4 with Dafabet.
