England captain Joe Root misses training in South Africa through illness

England captain Joe Root misses training in South Africa through illness”

Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes as well as Root hung around off the area at Centurion where England were comfortably defeated. In immediate past, nevertheless, the floor staff have actually attempted to have more rate through the area and have now generally remaining a good covering of lawn to provide some help to fast bowlers. Wood was England's second-highest wicket-taker at the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 after picking up 18 wickets from ten matches. "They will join the national team if and when required", Cricket South Africa stated in a release on Friday (January 10).

The England captain was absent from the team's session in Port Elizabeth because of a stomach upset, the second time he has suffered with illness on a tour which has been dominated by absences.

- Both teams have actually reasonably inexperienced, possibly susceptible batting line-ups.

It was a blow for England when Rory Burns, who made 84 in the second innings of the first Test, was injured ahead of the second match but Dom Sibley stepped up with an important century while Joe Denly has been solid at number three without going on to a big score.

But it has also been a formidable 63 years since South Africa last beat these foes at St George's Park, the sole victory having come under the leadership of Clive van Ryneveld in March 1957.

The Stokes factor: Ben Stokes had an enormous influence on the second Test at Newlands, with the impact of his batting and bowling exceeding his statistics.

England will be riding on a wave of confidence after Newlands, but hopes that first choice slow bowler Jack Leach would be rejoining the party have been dashed.

The transformation target sets out for six players of colour - including two black Africans - to be selected in the South Africa squad. He may be back in contention for a place in the starting line-up.

Last period, though, South Africa experienced certainly one of their particular many embarrassing house defeats once they transpired to Sri Lanka, just who finished a 2-0 show winnings.

- a complete of 68,662 spectators created an exciting environment at Newlands but anecdotal proof implies that around 40,000 of these had been supporting England.

South Africa's all-rounders, Vernon Philander and Dwaine Pretorius, are less flamboyant, specially because of the bat, although Philander's bowling has got the prospective to be crucial if he gets some assistance from the pitch.

Port Elizabeth has pleasant beaches and is near to game reserves but is not quite in the same league as a drawcard for tourists.
