Cricket News: England VS South Africa 2nd ODI 2022-Match Preview
The action now shifts to Manchester, where the hosts recently lost to India by five wickets. England will be eager to break their current ODI losing streak and begin their home season with a victory
On July 22, the Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester will host the second One-Day International between South Africa and England. After their recent defeats to the Proteas and India, the hosts will be keen to rebound and do so with a bang.
South Africa had outstanding performances in both areas during the series' first game, winning by 62 runs. Rassie van der Dussen and Anrich Nortje's contributions were crucial to the Proteas' victory.
Ben Stokes won't be available for England in this match, so Phil Salt is more likely to be selected for the starting lineup.
South Africa will seek to win the forthcoming match and secure their dominance of the three-match series.
The home team must make sure that its batters are capable of scoring some significant runs. None of their situations came together in the previous match except for top-order players like Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, and Jason Roy. Matthew Potts' absence from the team was another setback for the team. Due to the intense heat in Durham, Potts became ill and had to abandon the game.
South Africa will feel quite confident after their team puts forth a professional performance. The team intends to carry over this performance into the next game.
