SA vs ENG Match Analysis and Review:
SA vs ENG, after whitewashing South Africa in the T20I series England would be confident about their performance. Dawid Malan is the player of the series as he scored a total of 173 runs in three T20I’s.
Last time when both teams faced each other in an ODI series in Wanderer Stadium the series was tied. The player of the series was the South African skipper Quinton De Kock.
South Africa has to overcome its issues as its condition is not looking great. South Africa has to work hard to get back in the game. England has overwhelmed South Africa regardless of playing on the home grounds they have whitewashed them.
