Performance Overview of Team England & South Africa

Team England is one of the top contenders of the T20 World Cup 2021 because of their excellent batting line-up and all-rounders. However, bettors and fans have not forgotten their defeat against India in their warm-up match on October 18. However, South Africa comes with the hope of winning its first ICC tournament. However, they do not possess the strength they did in past matches; Punters are hopeful of Temba Bavuma turning the tables. With a few days to go before the match between England vs South Africa, Fun88 betting experts list the strengths and weaknesses of the Super 12 teams.


Explosive batting line-up, having the numero uno T20 batter of the world Dawid Malan in England’s World Cup squad. Also, Moeen Ali’s performance in IPL 2021 for CSK brought the best out of him. The absence of slow bowlers and spinners with one spinner chosen- Adil Rashid.
Jason Roy, Jos Buttler, and Jonny Bairstow are impressive bowling line-ups. Skipper Eoin Morgan’s batting form is also a concern for England, with an average of 11.08.


The South African squad has experienced players like David Miller, Anrich Nortje and Rassie van der Dussen. They’ve faced challenges in the knockout stages of international tournaments even when they have the best players.
Bowling is South Africa’s strength. Anrich Nortje, Kagiso Rabada, and Tabraiz Shamsi are the key bowlers. Quinton de Kock opted out of South Africa’s Twenty20 World Cup 2021.

Speaking of Team South Africa, batsmen Quinton de Kock, captain Bavuma, Aiden Markram and David Miller will hope to score big runs. Youngsters Rassie van der Dussen and Reeza Hendricks could also be the fuel to fire the batting unit. Lead spinners Keshav Maharaj and Tabraiz Shamsi will have a power-packed pace, led by Anrich Nortje and Kagiso Rabada.

Team England, however, will miss their two biggest match-winners as Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer are unlikely to be part of their T20 World Cup squad due to injuries. Tymal Mills, the left-arm fast bowler, returns to the squad after a lengthy hiatus.

“Tymal Mills deserves his inclusion and has demonstrated over the past couple of years that he has all the skills… his exceptional pace is a standout… he will add variety to our bowling unit,” said England coach Chris Silverwood.

England World Cup Betting-Best Players To Bet On

Jos Buttler – With Team England’s desire to win the World Cup, Joe Buttler comes in as the ace opening batsman whose advantage is the Powerplay overs. Watch out for the series of drives, flicks, reverse sweeps, ramps, and huge slogs.

Moeen Ali – Fun88 predicts that Ali may be England’s most important player of all. He’s got a significant role to play as the team’s second spinner, and his experience of playing for CSK in the IPL will come in handy.

Chris Jordan Jordan is England’s all-time leading wicket-taker in T20 cricket. Bettors must keep an eye on his styles- death bowling; and the variety and the changes of pace he brings in.

Kagiso Rabada – The tall and slim fast bowler bowling at an incredible pace is a sight to watch! Kagiso Rabada, the successor to Dale Steyn, is a leader of their bowling attack. Last year he was the top wicket-taker in the IPL, and during the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 season, he’s been at his best form. We predict to keep a look at his four overs.

Quinton de Kock De Kock may have had a poor IPL performance in 2021, but you cannot neglect the fact that he’s one of the cleanest hitters in the world and one of the most feared batters; too! All would depend on his opening whether he can get them off to fast starts.

Anrich Nortje Known to be one of the best T20 bowlers around, Nortje’s simplicity and dedication to playing like Rabada could be a winning point for the team. Anrich Nortje’s economy rate in the 2021 IPL was under 6, which says it all about his solid performance.
