The second One-Day International (ODI) between England and South Africa takes place on Saturday, January 29 at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein
The second One-Day International (ODI) between England and South Africa takes place on Saturday, January 29 at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein. The match is critical for the English team if they are to remain in the three-match ODI series. South Africa defeated England in the first 50-over match and gained a 1-0 lead in the series. Jos Buttler and company will want to shift gears and get a win so that South Africa does not take an insurmountable lead. Rassie van der Dussen impressed on his comeback to ODI cricket, scoring a superb century to help the Proteas take a 1-0 lead.
If the hosts lose the one-day international series, they will be forced to compete in the ICC 50-over tournament qualifiers. Temba Bavuma will captain the team, and all South African players are eligible. They recently lost a three-match Test series to Australia, where they lost 0-2. England is in a strong position in the World Cup Super League table and will comfortably qualify for the ODI World Cup. In their most recent ODI series, they failed to make an impression. England played Australia in a three-match One-Day International series in November last year. Throughout the tour, they were defeated 0-3 times.

Jos Buttler has been a deadly striker of the cricket ball on the white-ball circuit. He has wrecked bowling attacks and piled-up runs for fun with his flamboyant stroke play. In the SA20 2023, the wicketkeeper-batter also showed off his batting skills, making 285 runs in eight games. As a result, it would not be shocking to see him put on a show in the first ODI. Anrich Nortje has frequently clocked speeds in excess of 145 kmph and has terrified batters with his blazing velocity. In the SA20 2023 tournament, he wrought havoc, collecting 13 scalps in seven games. Given his present bowling form, the speedster has the ability to perform with the ball against England.
