South Africa captain Faf du Plesis wins the toss and decides to bowl against England at the Oval.
In today’s match of ICC cricket World Cup 2019 (CWC 2019), the Eoin Morgan’s England cricket team will lock horns with South Africa cricket team led by Faf du Plessis at The Kennington Oval in London. A humiliating first round exit in cricket world cup 2015 prompted them to rethink of their methodology towards the 50-over cricket.
The change has been amazing, with England national cricket team moving to the highest point of the one-day international (ODI) rankings and twice setting a new record for the most elevated ODI total, which presently remains at 481 for six. Then again, South Africa have endured a lot of cricket World Cup despair which earned them the title of ‘chokers’.
In any case, they are coming into the ICC CWC 2019 as an underdog with a large portion of their players are required to retire after the show-piece occasion. Head to head, South Africa have a favorable position as they won 29 out of 59 matches while one match finished in a tie and 3 matches finished with no outcome.
