Four cricket tips you should consider when England face South Africa in the first ODI on Tuesday.
South Africa to win
At long odds, South Africa have to be worth a gamble against out-of-form opposition.
England’s famed batting line-up didn’t fire at all against India last week, with several of their star players looking overcooked.
Aiden Markram to score over 22.5 runs
Markram is a very consistent player, turning the strike over to give opportunities to more explosive players.
He has scored 17 or more in eight of his last nine innings, so a runs line of 23 seems low.
Ben Stokes to score over 25.5 runs
Stokes will want to end his ODI career on a high, so is worth backing to score 26 or more.
He has scored 21+ in six of his last seven innings, beating this threshold in four of them.
Adil Rashid to be England’s top wicket-taker
Rashid missed the series defeat to India and can add fresh impetus to the team this week.
He has gone wicketless in just four of his last 16 ODIs.
