South Africa have won the toss and have opted to field
South Africa (Playing XI): Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock(w), Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis(c), Rassie van der Dussen, Jean-Paul Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir
England (Playing XI): Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid
Morgan: Would’ve looked to do the same. Wicket looks really good. It’s set fair all day, shouldn’t change much. Yes, Wood was available for selection. But unfortunately he’s missed out.
Archer’s a guy who’s come in and impressed. He’s very calm when he plays. He’s a very exciting prospect. Yeah, the favourites tag sits comfortably. It’s been a collective drive for us.
Faf: Going to have a bowl. Early start at the Oval, if there’s anything in the wicket, it’s now. Shamsi, Miller, Morris, Steyn not playing.
Steyn’s around 80%. The start of the World Cup. It’s going to be a good one. Ngidi and KG have been exceptional over the last couple of years. Good to see Amla scoring runs in the warm up.
