England vs South Africa Preview, Predictions & Betting Advice

England and South Africa start their 2020 Women’s T20 World Cup adventures when they clash in Perth on Sunday.

England go into the tournament as runners-up, while South Africa were major disappointments the last time the tournament took place.

The last time the sides met was at the 2018 Women's T20 World Cup, with England giving South Africa a 7-wicket hiding.

England Form & News

England are on a patchy run of form, losing their last match by 10-wickets to Sri Lanka in Adelaide on February 18, and winning just 2 of their last 5.

Despite that team form, the individual form of captain Heather Knight with the bat is hugely encouraging. She is averaging 31.33 runs over her last 10 innings at a strike rate of 127.

England reached the final of the 2018 Women's T20 World Cup and they will be eager to get off to a winning start in 2020 as they look to avenge their final defeat to Australia.

South Africa Form & News

Like England, South Africa have struggled in T20s of late, winning just 2 of their last 5. In their last match, Australia ran out 4-wicket winners, but the African side managed to take it to the final over.

Mignon du Preez is always a danger with the bat for South Africa. She is averaging 21 with the bat in her last 6 matches. While she may not be entirely happy with that form, she is a woman for the big occasion and will be eager to impress in her 100th T20 appearance for her country.

South Africa failed to reach the knockout stage of the 2018 World Cup, so that will be their main goal heading into the tournament.

England vs South Africa Head to Head

England have won 3 of the last 5 T20 meetings with South Africa. Their last clash came in the 2018 T20 World Cup, with England bowling South Africa out for 85 and then chasing down that total with 7 wickets in hand.

England vs South Africa Match Up

While the recent form of both sides isn’t the best, England are the better side on paper.
