Capetown: England has won the toss and decided to field first against the host South Africa. Wicketkeeper Quinton D Kock faces an uphill task to contain a clinical English side. The home team is in a phase of transition, it is a rare occasion when the guest is favorite before starting the match.
England will be led by the captain who has ended their long wait for the world cup victory last year. The team has kick-started the post covid cricket and most of the players are in fine nick. Here are the squads.
England (Playing XI): Jos Buttler(w), Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Eoin Morgan(c), Sam Curran, Tom Curran, Jofra Archer, Chris Jordan, Adil Rashid
