ENG vs SA Preview: 

  • Batting at the top of the order, 36 year old Dawid Malan is averaging 61.60 from 24 ODIs and is one of the players in world cricket who has hit a century in all three international formats. With scores of 54, 96, 127 and 140 across his last six ODI innings, we are backing Malan to be England’s highest run scorer against South Africa. Adil Rashid has taken over 150 ODI wickets since the start of 2015 and if England are to be successful in this Cricket World Cup then they need him to be at his best. He picked up 3 wickets in the defeat against Afghanistan and he is our tip for England’s top wicket taker on Saturday.
  • Quinton de Kock was targeted by the spin bowlers at the top of the innings against the Netherlands but still hit three fours before being dismissed for 20 runs from 22 balls. He is approaching 31 years of age and is two innings away from his 150th in ODI cricket. His record is brilliant with just under 6400 runs in the format and he is our pick for South Africa’s highest run scorer against England. Marco Jansen took 2-27 in the last match with the rest of the bowling attack conceding between 38 and 57. He finds swing and bounce from his left-arm angle and he is a strong choice for South Africa’s top wicket taker in Mumbai.
  • After being brought up in South Africa, there is an added incentive for Dawid Malan to perform in this game. We recommend choosing him to hit over 31.5 runs in this match.

Weather & Pitch Report


High humidity is expected throughout this game with cloud cover from start to finish. The temperature is forecast to remain above 30 degrees across the match. 

Pitch Report:

The pitch at the Wankhede Stadium is often bowler friendly and we saw Australia dismissed for 188 in the last ODI here. A par score will be around 280-300.

Toss Prediction: 

The last three ODIs and five of the last six at this venue have been won by the team batting second. We predict that both teams will choose to field first if they win the toss.

ENG vs SA Team NEWS: 

ENG Team News: 

The fitness of Ben Stokes remains a big issue for England and it looks like he will be passed fit and will be able to play in this game. However, after a poor display in the last match, we expect Sam Curran to be left out and Moeen Ali to come into the side.

SA Team News: 

After opting for Tabraiz Shamsi on a spinning wicket in the previous game, Gerald Coetzee came back into South Africa’s side ahead of the match against the Netherlands in Dharamsala. Although they suffered a shock defeat, we expect South Africa to select the same XI for the England fixture.

Winning Chances: 

This match gives both teams the opportunity to show that their defeat to one of the smaller sides in their last games was a one-off and that they are genuine contenders for the competition. South Africa have been in brilliant form in this format and it will be very interesting to see how their players respond to the defeat against the Netherlands. England have not been very convincing in this format over the last couple of years but still have players who can perform on the highest stage when it really matters. Our prediction is for a close contest but with England coming out on top in Mumbai on Saturday.

ENG vs SA Key Players: 


Dawid Malan 

The left-handed opener is England’s leading run-scorer in the World Cup 2023 so far with a top score of 140 and 186 runs in total. He will enjoy facing the pace bowlers for South Africa.

Harry Brook 

The right-hander was a controversial pick for the squad which meant Jason Roy was left out. The all-format batter top scored with 66 runs from 61 balls in the defeat against Afghanistan.

Adil Rashid 

The 35 year old went wicketless against New Zealand in the tournament opener but has impressed since with 1-42 against Bangladesh before taking 3-42 against Afghanistan.

Mark Wood- 

one of the quickest bowlers in the tournament, the right-arm quick will be looking forward to getting the ball in his hand at the Wankhede Stadium. He has 3 wickets so far in the competition.

South Africa 

Quinton de Kock 

Ahead of Thursday’s game, only two batters had hit more runs than the South African keeper-batter who began the tournament with successive centuries.

Aiden Markram 

When the right-handed number four was dismissed for only 1 run against the Netherlands, it was a sign that South Africa were in trouble. He has been in brilliant form and hits the ball with plenty of power.

Marco Jansen 

The tall left-arm pace bowler is also very useful with the bat. Ahead of this game he has taken 6 wickets in the tournament with a strike-rate of only 25.00.

Kagiso Rabada 

The fast bowler is one of the most accurate, hostile and quick pacers across all formats of international cricket. He dismissed top order batters Vikramjit Singh and Bas de Leede in the last game.

ENG vs SA Team Forms: 

ENG Team Form: 

England are certainly not playing their best cricket at the moment and come into this match not only after an embarrassing defeat but with only one win from their last four ODIs.

SA Team Form: 

South Africa had been in brilliant form in ODIs in their last bi-lateral series and at the start of this tournament before their defeat to the Netherlands.
