South Africa beat England 27 runs


South Africa successfully held their nerve despite a big opening partnership from England in the first ODI as the tourists attempted to chase down 298 to win. The Proteas knew that they had the bowling attack to run through England if given the opportunity and once the first wicket went down, that’s exactly what they did as Jos Buttler’s side lost their last nine wickets for just 125 runs. Now South Africa aim to seal the series in what should be another close affair.

England can take positives from defeat, specifically the timely return to form of Jason Roy with a superb century. However, they remain without a number of key players such as Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone. This was clearly felt within their batting order, which does feel a little light when taking into account their incredible strength-in-depth. Against this formidable South African bowling attack, you can’t rule out another England collapse and when you also factor in that Buttler’s men have lost each of their last four ODIs, backing South Africa to win once again should be seriously considered.
