Here are Guy Giles' best cricket tips for the first T20 match between South Africa and England at Newlands on Friday.


Quinton de Kock to hit a six

The South Africa captain won his second IPL title with Mumbai Indians earlier this month, ending the tournament with 503 runs and 22 sixes.

He looks a good bet to clear the rope in the series opener on Friday, having done so in four of his last six T20Is.

England to hit most sixes

England are at full-strength for this series, with Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Dawid Malan all vying for a place in the batting order.

With big-hitting captain Eoin Morgan to consider as well, England have plenty of firepower with the bat and should clear the ropes a few times on Friday.

Andile Phehlukwayo player performance: Over 25.5

Phehlukwayo is a key player for South Africa’s limited-overs side with his knack of taking wickets and scoring important runs.

Should he take a wicket on Friday – as he has done in 11 of his last 12 T20 internationals – he will need just six runs to pass this mark.

Jofra Archer to take over 1.5  wickets

Archer is coming off an outstanding IPL campaign in which he took 20 wickets to claim the MVP award.

Surprisingly, he has played just four T20Is so far, but has taken two wickets in two of those matches.
