England vs South Africa preview:

After a scratchy start to their title defence, England hit top gear against co-hosts West Indies in Gros Islet, consigning them to an eight-wicket defeat. The bowlers restricted the West Indies to 180 in 20 overs, following which Phil Salt and Jonny Bairstow exploded to leave the opposition dazed.

South Africa, meanwhile, are the amongst the three sides along with Australia and India as the unbeaten sides in T20 World Cup 2024. The Proteas opened their Super 8 campaign with a win against USA, who ran them exceptionally close in pursuit of 195 despite looking down and out at one stage. Hence, Aiden Markram and co. will be looking to iron out those flaws against England.

Squads:

England: Jos Buttler (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonathan Bairstow, Harry Brook, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Tom Hartley, Will Jacks, Chris Jordan, Liam Livingstone, Adil Rashid, Phil Salt, Reece Topley, Mark Wood.

South Africa: Aiden Markram (c), Ottniel Baartman, Gerald Coetzee, Quinton de Kock, Bjorn Fortuin, Reeza Hendricks, Marco Jansen, Heinrich Klaasen, Keshav Maharaj, David Miller, Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, Ryan Rickelton, Tabraiz Shamsi, Tristan Stubbs.
