England vs South Africa Match Prediction & Preview

England and South Africa are set to face off on Saturday when they battle it out at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium.

Chris Silverwood’s side maintained their undefeated run so far in this tournament, all but securing a place in the playoffs as the favourites of the tournament.

England looks like the likely team to take home the trophy this season, and it looks like they’ll need some stopping if that’s going to be the case. It will be a good time to practise in a final scenario against South Africa.

Meanwhile, the South Africans need to win this match against the juggernauts of the competition, if they are any chance to progress to the next stage. Assuming the Australians defeat the West Indies, Quinton de Kock’s likely need a net run rate boost as well.

Despite being third in Group 1, they’ve only lost one match this campaign, which was against second-placed Australia. They head into this match in the best form possible, after downing Bangladesh by six wickets after bowling them out for 84.

England may look to take the foot off the pedal in this match, considering they’ve practically already qualified, but I still think they have what it takes on Saturday to down a hungry South African team.
