South Africa vs England 2020 ODI series – where and when
The three-match One Day International series takes place at a trio of different cricketing venues across South Africa in early February.
1st ODI – February 4 (Newlands Cricket Ground, Cape Town) Day/Night
2nd ODI – February 7 (Kingsmead Cricket Ground, Durban)
3rd ODI– February 9 (Wanderers Stadium, Johannesburg)
The first two ODIs are day/night matches with play set to start at 1pm SAST local time. That means an 11am GMT start for folk watching in the UK. The 3rd ODI is a regular day match and starts at 10am SAST (8am GMT).
This ODI series marks the first time that England have played a game of this format since winning the World Cup last year. But hero Jofra Archer is ruled out with an elbow injury that may also keep him out of the forthcoming T20 series against the hosts, while England may also look to rest Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes.
Despite those big name absentees, South Africa will still have a huge job on their hands and will be pinning hopes on Quinton de Kock to deliver the same sort of excellent batting form that saw him chalk up an average of just under 50 in the preceding Test series.
