Match: South Africa vs England, 2nd T20I
Date: November 29, 2020
Time: 6:00 PM IST (2:30 PM local time)
Venue: Boland Park, Paarl
After registering a comfortable victory on Saturday, England will travel to Boland Park to face Proteas on Sunday in the second T20I. The Englishmen chased 183 runs with five wickets in hand.
Despite the defeat, South Africa has plenty of positives along with a few issues to ponder. Though the opening partnership failed to lay a foundation for a big score, Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis forged a partnership for the second wicket. Van der Dussen and Klassen scored quite a few runs to help the Proteas mount a competitive total.
The rotation of fast bowlers backfired for South Africa on Friday. Anrich Nortje was in fine form in IPL but was rested against England. Also, few misfields and poor bowling at the death overs costed the home side.
England had a near-perfect game against the hosts. The bowlers were up to the task, whereas the batsmen didn’t allow the pressure to mount upon them. Jonny Bairstow looked in a fine and guided his side home with a victory. The Englishmen will be looking to clinch the series on Sunday.
