Batting first, England scored 258 runs with the help of 87-run knock from Joe Denly and forty runs cameo from Chris Woakes. Tabraiz Shamsi was the pick among bowlers for hosts taking three wicket-haul and was supported by other bowlers to restrict England at an average total.

Ever-consistent Rassie Van Der Dussen also remained unbeaten at 38* runs. Chris Woakes, Root, and Jordan took one scalp each in the losing cause for their team.

Top picks for SA vs ENG Dream11 Prediction
Quinton De Kock:
Newly elected skipper Quinton De Kock will lead the team from the front and is a brilliant batsman. He scored 107 runs in the first ODI and will be a must pick in SA vs ENG Dream11 team.
Rassie Van Der Dussen:
He has performed consistently for South Africa and can play as per the situation of the match. Dussen scored 38* runs in the first ODI and can be a great choice of captaincy in grand leagues.
Bavuma is a technically strong batsman and missed his well-deserved century in the first ODI getting out on 98 runs and will be the key in the middle order.
Reeza is a talented performer and will open the innings. His recent form is good but failed in the first ODI.
Andile is a good all-rounder and can be handy in both the departments. He should be preferred in your fantasy teams.
Pacer Ngidi is a wicket-taking pacer but has recently recovered from injury and was not at his best in the first ODI. He will lead the South Africa pace attack in the absence of Rabada.
He is an experienced performer in domestic cricket and can out-perform in both the departments of the game. He took one scalp in the first match.
Spinner Shamsi is a wicket-taking but inconsistent bowler. However, He took three wicket-haul in the last match and will be eager to continue the momentum ahead.
He is one of the top batsmen in world cricket but is struggling with form. He can also bowl a few overs of part-time spin if required, like the last match where he took one scalp.
Flamboyant Opener Roy is in his best form currently and can lay havoc single-handedly. He got a good start in the last match scoring run-a-ball 32 runs and can be tried as captain in mini grand leagues.
He is an attacking opening batsman but is struggling with his form from the last few months. However, He struck a century in the second practice match but failed in all other encounters.
He is a wicket-taking pace bowler and handy lower-order batsmen. His recent form is exceedingly well and will be a must-pick in ENG vs SA Dream11 team.
He is a better player of spin as compared to pace bowling and can fetch you good points if top order collapses.
He scored 85 runs and struck twice in the second practice match and also scored crucial 87 runs knock in the first ODI.
He can be a match-winner with the bat as well as ball and is a reliable performer for England cricket. Sam can extract extra swing from the surface.
He is a consistent and talented all-rounder. Woakes scored 40 runs and took one scalp in the first ODI and can be a smart pick in your fantasy team.
