Match seven of the ongoing Commonwealth Games (CWG 2022) will see England lock horns with South Africa on Tuesday (August 2) at Edgbaston in Birmingham. England have won their first game, while Proteas are yet to open their account in the competition. They will be desperate to win this game and keep their hopes alive in the tournament.
England started their campaign on the right note with a comfortable win over Sri Lanka. Despite the absence of skipper Heather Knight, the hosts’ depth and balance shone with the likes of Alice Capsey and Sophie Ecclestone starring with bat and ball, respectively.
While South Africa went down in their first game against New Zealand, have a decent roster with a lot depending on Laura Wolvaardt with the bat. All in all, a cracking game beckons in Birmingham.
