ENG vs SA 2nd ODI Dream11 Prediction: England & South Africa are all set to take on each other in the second ODI of the three-match ODI series on Friday at Manchester. Proteas who displayed an all-round performance in the first ODI & outclassed England by 62 runs would aim to capitalize on their winning spree & seal the series by winning the second ODI. On the other hand, England who continued their losing streak from India’s ODI series by displaying a below-the-par show in the first ODI would try to save the series by dominating the second ODI.
To avoid the unwanted record of losing successive ODI series at home ground, England would include Craig Overton, David Willey, and Reece Topley in the Playing XI for the second Test. The trio was rested in the first ODI & the outcome was England’s ineffective bowling attack in the first ODI. To avoid the same situation in the second ODI all the key bowlers will find a place in the second Test squad.
On the batting front too, England failed to hit the mark as its middle-order failed to actually score runs. Joe Root (86 off 77) & Bairstow (86 runs in 77) were the real heroes for England with the middle-order getting dismissed cheaply. England’s middle order including the likes of Buttler & Livingstone needs to step up & deliver if they aim to level the series. With Ben Stokes announcing retirement from ODI, his place in the middle order would be taken by some other player.
On the other hand, South Africa who displayed an on-point show with both bat & ball will put all their efforts to maintain their winning spree in the second ODI. They would probably head into the second ODI with the same winning composition of Playing XI. In the first ODI, riding on the back of Rassie van der Dussen (134 off 117), Aiden Markram (77 off 61), and Janneman Malan’s (57 from 77) blistering knock, South Africa posted a mammoth 333 runs on board. The trio will continue to take the onus of scoring runs in the second ODI while Quinton De Kock & Malan would aim to return back to scoring terms in the final ODI.
Their bowling department too looks sorted with Anrich Nortje leading their pace attack. In the opener match, he made England bowlers dance to his tune by scalping 4-53 in 8.5 overs. Other pacers Lungi Ngidi & Phenlukwayo should step up & provide valuable support to Ngidi by scalping crucial wickets. The match would be a nail-biting contest with both teams aiming to secure a win. Who will succeed in their motive is what time will say.
