Preview: South African cricket has gone through a hard time in the last few months, even if they did not play cricket on the field for a long time.
On Friday, the South African cricketers take the field in national colours for the first time in many months, against England.
The first T20I will feature the likes of Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis, Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi, all of whom have featured for the respective sides in IPL 2020.
De Kock will be leading the Proteas for the first time in T20s after being named the full-time limited overs captain.
Eoin Morgan and Co will have their task cut out against the dangerous hosts, who may have not played any international cricket in some time but remain a difficult challenge.
England have played decent amount of international cricket in last few months and would be looking to take that as an advantage in the first T20I.
South Africa: Quinton de Kock(w/c), Temba Bavuma, Faf du Plessis, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Heinrich Klaasen, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi, JJ Smuts, Beuran Hendricks, Reeza Hendricks, Pite van Biljon, Keshav Maharaj, Junior Dala, George Linde, Bjorn Fortuin, Lutho Sipamla, Kyle Verreynne, Janneman Malan, Glenton Stuurman
England: Jason Roy, Jos Buttler(w), Dawid Malan, Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Sam Curran, Chris Jordan, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Moeen Ali, Sam Billings, Reece Topley, Tom Curran

Stumps, Day 4. Rahane plays well to evade further damage to the India scorecard. Lyon tested him in the last over of the day with some loopy deliveries with bat-pad and slips in place. Pujara and Rahane will resume innings and India's fight from 98/2. They need 309 runs to win. To draw, they need to bat for three sessions. Not to forget, Jadeja will not bat and Pant still has some pain in his arm that dealt the blow in first innings. Huge task for India tomorrow, with Vihari not among runs and short on confidence. We will see you tomorrow at 3.30 am IST.
A very long day comes to an end. India bowled well to curtail Aussies to 338. Great hundred by Steve Smith before Jadeja ran him out. He also took four wickets, two with yorkers (yes you read it right). He was a livewire in the field and produced dividends with the ball. Rohit and Gill gave India a solid base. Both back to the hut now. Gill did score his maiden fifty. Rahane and Pujara in the middle got better with time spent on the pitch. Rahane will face the first ball tomorrow. We will see you again at 3.30 am IST tomorrow. Remember the Day 3 begins at 4.30, so do Day 4 and 5 to make up for overs lost due to rain on Day 1. See you tomorrow, take care and good bye.
