England, one of the favourites to win the World Cup, is all set to play their first match against South Africa at the Kennington Oval in London. The Poms have had to face a few injury concerns, but most of their players have recovered and are raring to go. The Eoin Morgan-led team lost their first warm-up to Australia, but made a stupendous comeback, beating Afghanistan by nine wickets at The Oval.
The Proteas, on the other hand, brushed aside Sri Lanka by 87 runs in Cardiff. However, to their dismay, their second match versus the Windies got abandoned due to persistent rain. Nevertheless, they had something to cheer as Hashim Amla got an unbeaten 51. As far as their next match is concerned, South Africa last beat England at the Oval way back in 1999 under the leadership of Late Hansie Cronje.
