Four cricket tips you should consider when England face South Africa in the second ODI on Friday.
South Africa to win
While England are not playing poorly enough that they can’t turn things around soon, it is worth continuing to back against them at these prices.
The hosts have lost five of their seven white-ball matches so far this summer and seem to have lost their aura with the bat.
Jason Roy to score over 28.5 runs
Lost in England’s wider failings with the bat is that Roy has improved in the last three ODIs.
After a bad start to the international summer, he has scored 23, 41 and 43 on his last three outings.
Aiden Markram to score over 25.5 runs
Markram’s consistency was highlighted in the first ODI and there is no reason not to back him again in this match.
He scored 77 on Tuesday as he continues to be one of the most consistent batters in the world.
Joe Root to hit a six
Root is by no means a prolific six-hitter, but this looks a big price considering his excellent form.
England’s No. 3 did clear the ropes twice on Tuesday as he scored 86 and has shown signs of expanding his game so far this summer.
