South Africa

South Africa are being led by Faf du Plessis in this cricket series. The joy of winning the first test match proved to be short lived as England bounced back strongly to win the second and third test matches. 

On top of two consecutive losses in their own conditions, they now also have to contend with the absence of Kagiso Rabada in this test match. Rabada has been banned for this test match after being deemed as unruly by ICC in the previous test match. 

Our prediction is of the inclusion of Beuran Hendricks in place of Kagiso Rabada in this test match. 

Here is our prediction of South Africa’s playing XI:

  • Faf du Plessis
  • Quinton de Kock
  • D Paterson 
  • Beuran Hendricks
  • Dean Elgar
  • Anrich Nortje
  • Zubair Hamza
  • Kesav Maharaj
  • Vernon Philander
  • PJ Malan
  • Rassie van der Dussen


England are being led by Joe Root in this cricket series. They would absolutely be on cloud nine right now with the way they have played in this cricket series. They have beaten the home side twice in their own conditions and at the moment, nothing is more significant than that. 

While South Africa will be entering the fourth test without their premier fast bowler, England have the option to include Jofra Archer in this cricket match. He has recovered from his injuries and has looked sharp in the nets. 

Our prediction is of the inclusion of Jofra Archer in the next game in place of Stuart Broad. 

Here is our prediction of England’s playing XI:

  • Joe Root
  • Mark Wood
  • Stuart Broad
  • Z Crawley
  • Sam Curran
  • Jofra Archer
  • Joe Denly
  • Dom Bess
  • Ollie Pope
  • Jos Butler
  • D Sibley

Expert Prediction: SA vs ENG

It is an open secret now that the South African cricket is currently in turmoil. Even the change in management has not proven to be a magic wand that they expected it to be. The management led by Graeme Smith, coach Mark Boucher and skipper for at least now Faf du Plessis, know that they are in for a hard yard if they want to get the glory days back for South Africa. 

England, on the other hand, will be fancying their chances of getting an overseas series victory after their impressive showing in two consecutive games. Ben Stokes cannot do any wrong, skipper Joe Root seem to have found his mojo, Joe Denly has been consistent while Ollie Pope seems to be a great find. Add the wicket-taking abilities shown by Dom Bess in the previous game and you have the making of a strong team. 

It is also going to be the swansong for South African fast bowler Vernon Philander. He had announced before the series that he will be retiring after the Johannesburg test match. He has been a great servant for South African cricket and he is going to be dearly missed. 

There is also a growing pressure now on Faf du Plessis, South African captain, due to back-to-back losses in many past games. If he does not help South Africa level the series at home, this might just be the last time he plays in the white for his team. 

Keeping everything that is happening around South African cricket in mind, our prediction is of a win for England. They have all the momentum now and it will be difficult for South Africa to stop them.
