South Africa and England have played a total of 15 T20Is against each other, out of which the English side has won 6 and the Proteas have won 8. One game ended without a result.
In last 5 T20Is between the two teams, South Africa have won 2 while England have won 3. The last game between them was played back in 2017 when England beat South Africa by 19 runs.
In the upcoming series, Jos Buttler is likely to open the batting for England with either Jason Roy or Jonny Bairstow. Eoin Morgan and Ben Stokes will bat in the middle order. In the absence of Jofra Archer, Mark Wood, Chris Jordan and Adil Rashid be the team’s leading bowlers.
South Africa, on the other hand, will stick to their ODI opening combination of Quinton de Kock and Reeza Hendricks with Rassie van der Dussen and David Miller providing the spark in the middle-order. The return of Dale Steyn will bolster their bowling, which already has Tabraiz Shamsi and Lungi Ngidi.
