A tricky situation in the first group of Super 12 may come to an end in the game between England and South Africa. The latter lost only once in the opening match against Australia, while now they have to pass a test by the number 1 team in the world rankings.
England won all four matches, including the clash against old rivals from Australia and seemed to guarantee the spot in the semifinals. However, both the Proteas and the Kiwis can also grab eight points, so the run rate will become a decisive factor. At the moment, England has a huge advantage over its opponents due to a series of dominating wins, while South Africa and Australia are pretty close with the respective numbers.

Actually, England can even lose this game and still top the group due to the great run rate. However, it’s hard to believe that they will relax before the playoff. The higher motivation for the Proteas forced bookies to offer the coefficient of about 1.5 for the victory of England. However, the Britishers are much stronger and have to close the last game of the Super 12 stage with another win. Want to read more cricket predictions and don’t miss the attractive odds?
