‘Favourites’ England look for a winning start

With Mark Wood fit, England will have to make the tough call of either playing Jofra Archer or Wood.

Chris Woakes, Adil Rashid and Liam Plunkett seem sure to hold a place in the line-up.

The batting seems quite settled with Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, and Jos Butler. Moeen Ali is excepted to bat at no. 7.

Dale Steyn to miss the opening clash

Veteran pacer Steyn has been ruled out of the opening match due to shoulder discomfort.

Like England, the Proteas also have a settled batting unit with the likes of skipper Faf du Plessis, Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock, David Miller, and JP Duminy.

Imran Tahir will surely find a spot with Kagiso Rabada, but it will be the all-rounder’s spot which will be debated.

Dane Pretorius, Chris Morris, and Andile Phehlukwayo are the options for that spot.

The Oval pitch has been good for batting in the last few years, but coming to the World Cup; it could provide some assistance to the seamers early on.

The ball could swing a bit when the ball is new, but batting will become easier as the day progresses. The weather is expected to be cloudy in London which could work in favour of the Pacers.
