ENG vs RSA Betting Tips

  • Joe Root has scored 44 international centuries and is recognised as one of the best Test batters in the game at the moment. He is well worth backing as England’s highest run scorer in this Test. With the ball, James Anderson was England’s most accurate bowler at Lord’s and he is our pick for their top wicket taker in this game.
  • Dean Elgar came very close to a half-century at Lord’s and produced a very compact Test innings. The skipper is our tip for South Africa’s highest run scorer in this match. With the ball, Kagiso Rabada took a 5-wicket haul in the first innings at Lord’s and he is a strong choice for South Africa’s top wicket taker in Manchester.
  • We recommend backing Kagiso Rabada to take 3+ First Innings in this Test

ENG vs SA 2nd Test Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After South Africa beat England by over an innings at Lord’s inside three days, the second Test of three begins at Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester on Thursday morning. England were bowled out twice across 82.4 overs in the opening game with South Africa’s bowlers getting plenty of plaudits. Read on as we preview this Test. This game gets underway at 11:00 local time in Manchester.

England will not change their approach after the heavy defeat at Lord’s but their confidence levels will certainly have been dented. A good start for England will be important in this match.

South Africa have beaten India, Bangladesh, New Zealand and England over their last six Tests and have a bowling attack to cause England some more problems in Manchester.

ENG vs SA Match Toss Prediction

Both captains wanted to field first at Lord’s and once again, weather conditions will come into the thought process here. It should not be as overcast as on Day 1 at Lord’s and we predict that both teams will want to bat first here.

ENG vs SA Pitch Report

The pitch has delivered plenty of high scoring games this year and will turn more as the game progresses. Expect the pace bowlers to take the bulk of the wickets during the opening two sessions.

Weather Report

Humid to begin with at the start of the game but the temperature will touch 21 degrees on Day 1. There is a good chance of no rain delays during the entire match.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

Losing inside three days at Lord’s was enough to send England’s fans and media into meltdown with the vast majority calling for Zak Crawley to be left out of this game. However, the noises from the England management are that Crawley will be backed in this game and the last Test of the series.

ENG Key Players

  • Joe Root - you have to go back over two years to find an England Test Match victory where Joe Root has not scored a half-century. As soon as he was dismissed at Lord’s the South African bowlers were delighted.
  • Jonny Bairstow - England’s form batter of the summer carried the attack for a short period of the second innings after being dismissed for a duck in the first innings at Lord’s. He has hit six Test centuries this year.
  • James Anderson - The swing bowler deserved more than the only wicket of Dean Elgar in the opening Test. His accuracy and ability to swing the ball both ways was as good as we have ever seen.

ENG Team Form

England had won four successive Tests but were well and truly brought back down to earth after a very poor display at Lord’s.

SA Team News

The visitors were on top of England from the moment they won the toss and chose to bowl first ahead of the First Test at Lord’s and never relinquished their grip on the game. Although there could be debate over whether to field two spinners, we expect South Africa to be unchanged.

SA Key Players

  • Dean Elgar - The captain delivered on his fighting pre-match talk by getting the best out of his bowlers at Lord’s. He hit 47 runs in an opening partnership of 85 with Sarel Erwee.
  • Sarel Erwee - In his first test in England, Erwee looked to be a picture of concentration, application and grit. He well deserved his score of 73.
  • Kagiso Rabada - The right arm fast bowler got his name on the Honour’s Board at Lord’s after taking 5-52 in England’s first innings. He also got the Player of the Match Award.

SA Team Form

South Africa should never be underestimated, particularly in this format, where they are targeting their fifth successive win in Tests.

Who will win England vs South Africa 2nd Test Match?

With Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow both batting at the top of their game, playing England in their home conditions is a tough ask. South Africa will need to dismiss both players early if they are to have a chance at Lord’s.

ENG vs SA Top Team Bowlers

Our bowling recommendations are James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Ollie Robinson for England. Robinson has been out with an injury over the last month but will be looking to resume his Test wicket career in this game.

Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje and Keshav Maharaj are our bowling picks for South Africa. Maharaj impressed with his control and variations at Lord’s and should get more assistance from the surface in Manchester.

🏆 England vs South Africa Prediction

South Africa were at the top of their game at Lord’s and it may be a big ask for them to replicate the performance from Lord’s in Manchester. England will not be criticised by the press and we expect McCullumill to continue to back his players. Overall we are expecting a close match but with New Zealand getting the win.
