It was a good pitch to bat on in the first One-day international initially. After the ball got older, the pitch got slower and more challenging. Rassie Van der Dussen scored well compiled century for South Africa along with valuable runs by de Kock, Bavuma, and David Miller to help the hosts 298 for 7.
Jason Roy scored century and put on 146 runs for the opening wicket. Sisanda Magala, Kagiso Rabada and Nortje used short ball tactics to engineer collapse registering 27 run win to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
It could be the same pitch that is likely to favor batters and hope for another thrilling encounter at the same venue.
A high-profile game awaits as both teams will try to win the game. While South Africa has started the series with a win, England will try to bounce back as well. Betway has also placed its odds in favour of South Africa as well at 2.00.
