ENG vs SA: The warm-ups have ended and the first match for the trophy is scheduled between England and South Africa. England is in form right now, whitewashing Pakistan in recent ODI series between them (4-0). Eoin Morgan is ready to take England to their maiden World Cup victory on home soil, especially since England has only lost 1 ODI from the past 15 they have played.
South Africa should be able to find their form coming into this match, having been the favorites in almost every World Cup thus far. Their bowling lineup is looking spectacular right now, with the likes of Lungi Ngidi, Dale Steyn and Kaglso Rabada.
