The three-match series will be a build-up for the 2021 T20 World Cup, which will be held in India from October next year. Young Reeza Hendricks is likely to join skipper De Kock at the top of the order while South African haven an experienced middle-order in the form of former captain Faf du Plessis, young Rassie van der Dussen, Heinrich Klaasen and David Miller to follow.

Andile Phelukwayo is expected to fulfil the all-rounder’s role for the Proteas. The hosts will have a strong bowling attack led by Kagiso Rabada, who ended up as the highest wicket-taker in the recently-concluded South Africa vs England 2020 along with fellow Delhi Capitals teammate Anrich Nortje and Lungi Ngidi.

The visitors on the other hand have a settled look about them. Hard-hitting opener Jason Roy is expected to open the batting with Jos Buttler with Test skipper Joe Root manning the middle-order with captain Morgan and in-form Dawid Malan.

All-rounder like Ben Stokes, Sam Curran and Jofra Archer give the Englishman a big edge over their rivals, although they are playing away from home.
