After defeating New Zealand in their last ODI stunt, South Africa are now all set to play yet another ODI series against England. The series will start the long tour which is also going to feature the all-important Champions Trophy 2017 as well. This will be their last preparatory run before the tournament as they will be heading right into it after this 3 match ODI series.

The squad for South Africa’s ODI team has already been announced as they are playing warm-up games in England. The team will be lead again by the flamboyant AB de Villiers. However, de Villiers doesn’t appear to be at his best as he could not come up with any major performances in his IPL appearances for Royal Challengers Bangalore. So, South Africa will expect him to get back to form before the mega event and they will be taking advantage of his aggressive batting capabilities for now.

Batting Strengths

In the batting department South Africa will be depending on Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, JP Duminy and du Plessis. Du Plessis is expected to lead the batting line for South Africa in challenging English conditions as he scored back to back fifties in the ODI series against New Zaland, getting 67 and 51*. Even though Amla is coming after a successful IPL tournament where he scored a couple of hundreds but we have to admit that ODI is a different ball game and he will have to shift gears to adjust to the conditions.

Bowling Strengths

In the bowling department, South Africa have a lot of depth. They will be depending on Kagiso Rabada who has been in great bowling form lately and is amongst wickets as well. He will certainly test the English batsmen with his unique varieties. Besides him, it will be Wayne Parnell, Morne Morkel and Chris Morris who will be in the spotlight. South Africa also have Andile Phehlukwayo who picked up 4 wickets in his last two ODI outings. So, they have a great bowling attack overall.
