The last ODI of the series will be played in Kimberley on February 1, 2023, between South Africa and England. Temba Bavuma will act as the captain of the South African side, while Jos Buttler will serve as the captain of the England cricket team.
Because of a thumb injury, Quinton de Kock will likely miss the third ODI. In the starting XI, Reeza Hendricks can take his spot. In the meantime, England may attempt to reactivate Jofra Archer for the last ODI of the series. Phil Salt can also be included in the starting XI since he has fully recovered from his injury.
The stakes are high for South Africa since they must win to avoid taking part in the 2023 World Cup qualifying process. On the other hand, England, the reigning World Cup champion, must demonstrate its superiority by winning the final ODI of the series. The goal of Jos Buttler and his team in the ODI series against South Africa will be to win at least one game.
Winner Predicted for SA vs. ENG
The current ODI series between South Africa and the England cricket team is predicted to end in victory for South Africa. One quality that the Temba Bavuma-led team exhibited that this England team is currently lacking is their ability to play as a unit and seem dominant.
England should be concerned by Jofra Archer’s poor performance and the lower order’s underperforming, except for Jos Buttler. By winning the third ODI, South Africa would most likely sweep the series against England.
