South Africa vs England 1st T20I Preview: SA eye revenge against formidable Eng in T20I series

England tour of South Africa: South Africa and England gear up for the first T20I of the three-match series on Friday. Quinton De Kock will lead the Proteas in both formats, while Eoin Morgan will captain England in both formats.

Notably, South Africa played two three-match T20 series back in February earlier this year and lost both of them 2-1 at the hands of England and the Proteas will now be eyeing revenge.

On the other hand, England have played more T20 international matches than any other team in this disrupted 2020 and they have won two series against South Africa and Australia and tied one with Pakistan. Hence, they will have the psychological advantage going into the match.

Interestingly, the match promises to be a thriller and with Jofra Archer and Mark Wood on one side, and Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje on the other, we will see a searing pace battle which the batsmen certainly won’t fancy facing.
