England vs South Africa Score T20 World Cup 2021 Match Live Updates: England Lose Dawid Malan; Liam Livingstone Key In Chase Of 190

England vs South Africa Cricket Score T20 World Cup 2021 Match Live Updates: England Lose Dawid Malan; Liam Livingstone Key In Chase Of 190 | Cricket News


England openers Jason Roy and Jos Buttler started cautiously in their run-chase of 190 but soon found themselves back in the pavilion. While Roy was stretchered off due to a possible calf or hamstring issue, Buttler was removed by Nortje for 26 runs. Jonny Bairstow also departed soon for one run off three balls while Moeen Ali fell for 37 runs off 27 balls. Batting first, Rassie van der Dussen and Aiden Markram scored brilliant fifties to power their team to 189/2 in 20 overs against England after captain Eoin Morgan won the toss and decided to field against South Africa in their last Super 12 match in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021 at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah. Only Moeen Ali and Rashid Khan got into the wickets while the rest of the bowling line-up struggled. Earlier, England made one change as pacer Mark Wood was brought in replacing fast bowler Tymal Mills, while South Africa went in unchanged from the last game. England, who are more or less assured of a semi-final spot, wouldn’t want to be complacent against an unpredictable South African side which has several match-winners who can take the game away from the opposition. With Tymal Mills out of the tournament, Eoin Morgan-led England will need to come up with a new combination, while on the other hand, South Africa still will be heavily dependent on their pace battery.

Eoin Morgan said during Toss:

“We will bowl first. Looks like a good wicket, dew will play a role here, as he saw against Sri Lanka. It’s a different challenge to play here, we saw an unbelievable innings from Jos Buttler the other day. We’ll have to give our best in every match. One forced change – Mark Wood is in, his first game of the tournament, replaces Tymal Mills.”

England (Playing XI): Jason Roy, Jos Buttler(w), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan(c), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood

Temba Bavuma said during Toss:


“We were looking to bowl as well, but now we need to start well with the bat and then try and defend it. We need to do well in the batting powerplay, lay a foundation and then plan ahead. We’re playing the same team.”

South Africa (Playing XI): Quinton de Kock(w), Reeza Hendricks, Rassie van der Dussen, Temba Bavuma(c), Aiden Markram, David Miller, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi
