CWC19 1st match-England vs South Africa  Preview, Prediction-  ICC CWC 2019-ENG vs SA

CWC19 first match will be played between England and South Africa on May30, 2019 at The Oval London. England is host of  ICC CWC 2019.England is considered favorite for CWC19. They defeated Pakistan by 4-0 before  CWC19. South Africa has beaten Sri Lanka  by 5-0 margin. Both teams are coming to clash in high spirit. England vs South Africa last encounter was in 2017 .When England beat South Africa by  2-1.In 2017 at Lords England batting line badly exposed vs Rabada, England lost lost 6 wickets for 20 and all team out for 153 in    31.1 overs.

England has strong batting line and South Africa  has strong bowling  a good clash is expected. Jason Roy,Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root , Eoin Morgan, Jos Butler and Ben Stokes all are in good form.In South Africa Kagiso Rabada with  Andile Phehlukwayo, Lungi Ngidi  and Chris Morris will  lead pace attack. Imran Tahir  with vast experience will lead spin department.

In South Africa batting line Hashim Amla is scoring well. Quinton   de Kock , Faf de Plessis , Rassie Van der Dussen and JP Duminy and David Miller has ability to destroy England Pace attack.England Pace attack will be Jofra Archer,Chris Woakes and Mark Wood.Mark Wood may be replaced with Liam Plunkett.Adil Rashid will lead spin department with help of Moeen Ali. Ben Stokes will play as all rounder.

Interesting contest.Jos Buttler vs Kagiso Rabada.

Jos Buttler has now highest SR in ODI and Kagiso Rabada as fastest bowler  who will be winner let us see.


In my opinion  a high scoring match is  expected, South Africa has more chances of win  as they have less pressure on them.South Africa has 55% and England has 45% chances. Hashim Amla will play a major role in South Africa victory. England batting may be collapsed vs Lungi Ngidi and Rabada.
