The countdown to the 2019 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup finally comes to an end, with England, the tournament hosts and the world’s No.1 ODI side facing South Africa in third place at The Oval on Thursday, May 30.

Overview:

England v South Africa

The Oval, London

2019 World Cup ICC Cricket, Match 1

Thursday, May 30 ; 10:30 local, 9:30 GMT

England’s batting line-up is laden with superstars, led by the opening pair of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow, who boasts the highest strike-rates in ODI history, with more than 1,000 runs scored among all openers. The rest of England’s line-up has similar strength, with the presence of Eoin Morgan and Joe Root often relatively overshadowed by the magnificent Jos Buttler, who is arguably the world’s most devastating 360 ° batsman today.

While Morgan is set to return to the front after missing the first warm-up match due to a finger injury, newly-qualified fast bowler Jofra Archer will be the man to watch among the bowlers and could be just what they need to finally lift the most prestigious trophy from cricket.

Like England, South Africa does not have a respected record at the tournament, but it looks balanced and of high quality on its side.

Wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock, along with the experienced duo of Hashim Amla and skipper Faf du Plessis, is as capable as anyone of punishing England’s opening bowlers and is a proven match-winner. Despite Dale Steyn’s absence, who was ruled out of the first game as he continues to recover from a shoulder injury, the bowling unit seems formidable, boasting the ever-energetic Imran Tahir and 24-year-old pacer Kagiso Rabada, who finished in the Indian Premier League as the top-two wicket-takers.

England v South Africa Key players

Jofra Archer (England): The batting appears to be adequately reinforced, so it is important that Archer hits the ground running for England to create an equally powerful bowling unit.

Imran Tahir (South Africa): Quelling runs and taking key wickets in the middle overs will be vital to avoid a total astronomical England, and Tahir will be the man charged with doing that. His guile and experience against the strong middle order of England could prove crucial.

England v South Africa Conditions:

It’s set to be a cloudy, dry London day with sunshine injections. Wait for England to go full-tilt with the bat from ball one whatever the weather.
