England v South Africa: third ODI – live!

Malan has struggled to line up Willey this morning, and now he’s gone. He reached for a delivery angled across him, possibly with a scrambled seam, and sliced it straight to Roy at point.

So much for it being advantage to bowl. Keshav Maharaj says the pitch looks a bit dry, so South Africa want to give their spinners the best chance to take wickets.

Sunday: the day of rest. And, in English cricket in July 2022, of resolution. For the second consecutive Sunday, England are involved in an ODI series decider. A week ago they bowed to the genius of Rishabh Pant at Old Trafford a week ago; today, they will hope for a better outcome against South Africa at Headingley.

Bilateral series tend not to tattoo themselves on the brain – if you don’t believe me, try naming the England XI for the first ODI against the Netherlands last month, and then try listing the Netherlands XI – but they occasionally find a home in the subconscious. This is a quietly important game for an England team who have suffered a crisis of confidence in the last few weeks.

In a world where perception increasingly trumps reality, the line between blip and terminal decline can be gossamer-thin. If England lose a third consecutive white-ball series, the end-of-an-era talk will be amplified. But if they win they will feel a whole lot better about their life going into the T20 series on Wednesday.

We haven’t said this too often over the last seven years, but England need more from their batters. They started the ODI summer by almost scoring 500 against the Netherlands; since then they haven’t reached 300.

Jos Buttler would also like a bit more luck with the toss. He lost important ones against India at the Oval and South Africa at Chester-le-Street. With a mixed forecast at Headingley, it will surely be a decent advantage to bowl first.

Key events

14th over: South Africa 81-1 (de Kock 45, van der Dussen 23) Sam Curran, Friday’s player of the game, replaces Topley (5-0-34-0). Four years after his England debut, Curran remains a hard-to-judge cricketer – I don’t know what his strongest suit is, or his strongest format, or if he’s really good. But I know he’s very nice.

His first over is quiet, culminating in an unsuccessful call to be taken behind when van der Dussen misses a hook.

13th: South Africa 78-1 (de Kock 43, van der Dussen 22) Only one wicketkeeper has made more hundreds of ODIs than Kock, the phenomenal Kumar Snagakkara. Interesting to see Shai Hope so high on the list.

Meanwhile, van der Dussen sweeps Moeen for a couple, then cracks a ball wide to the edge of coverage. He went in his usual understated fashion to 22 out of 25.

12th: South Africa 71-1 (de Kock 42, van der Dussen 16) A more delightful strike from de Kock, which brushes a full delivery from Topley after extra coverage for four. He timed the ball exquisitely this morning and already looks a decent bet for his 18th ODI cent.

11th over: South Africa 65-1 (de Kock 37, van der Dussen 16) van der Dussen premeditates a lap for four ahead of Moeen. Buttler knew what was coming and moved to the leg side, but ended up running past the ball.

Early signs are that South Africa will be looking for a score of at least 300.

10th: South Africa 60-1 (de Kock 36, van der Dussen 12) Topley replaces Willey, and his first pitch is timed in style to the edge of coverage by de Kock. The placement was impeccable, straight between the men on point and extra short.

He opens his face at the last second to slide another boundary to the third man, a tough shot made to look offensively easy. He ran 36 on 28 balls.

“A childish person might describe this as a battle between Willey and de Kock,” says Matt Dony. “But we are above that.”

9th over: South Africa 51-1 (de Kock 27, van der Dussen 12) Moeen has his first bowl to de Kock, who clocks a nice drive through extra coverage for his fourth boundary. He looks good here, worryingly for England.

8th over: South Africa 44-1 (de Kock 20, van der Dussen 11) Consecutive limits for de Kock off Willey. The first slid through the slides after mowing across the line, the second deftly circled around the corner from well outside the stump.

van der Dussen makes three bounds in four ball with an upbeat drive through the covers. A good over for South Africa, 13 away.

7th over: South Africa 31-1 (de Kock 12, van der Dussen 7) Moeen Ali comes in attack, a brave and interesting move considering we’re still in Powerplay.

His second ball is edged through the vacant slide area for four by van der Dussen, who then sweeps a few runs to the same area.

6th over: South Africa 25-1 (de Kock 12, van der Dussen 1) The new hitter is Rassie van der Dussen, the man with the highest average in ODI history (min 20 innings).

COUNTER! South Africa 24-1 (Malan v Roy v Willey 11)

Malan struggled to field Willey this morning, and now he’s gone. He hit a slanted delivery towards him, possibly with a scrambled seam, and sliced ​​it straight to Roy on point.

5th over: South Africa 24-0 (Malan 11, de Kock 12) de Kock started well but right-hander Malan still stands out. After hitting 2 of 13 balls, he passes a half-volley halfway for a relief boundary.

He gets another boundary later in the plus, stepping down the track to slam a short ball down the middle. Love-15.

4th over: South Africa 14-0 (Malan 2, de Kock 11) Too straight from Willey, and de Kock times the first boundary of the day to Midwicket.

3rd over: South Africa 9-0 (Malan 2, de Kock 6) de Kock is beaten, leading to a tempting swinger from Topley. There’s something going on for England’s bowlers, so Topley keeps throwing the ball. de Kock leans in for a nice push through extra coverage and comes back for three.

2nd over: South Africa 5-0 (Malan 2, de Kock 3) There is a hint of swing for David Willey, and Janneman Malan is beaten by whoever doesn’t come back. Willey starts with a good young girl.

1st over: South Africa 5-0 (Malan 2, de Kock 3) Reece Topley has taken 11 for 76 in his last three ODIs, many with the new ball. It takes him a few deliveries to find his lineup, but his latest is a jaffa that straightens past the outside edge of Quinton de Kock.

The players came out and the in-form Reece Topley will play first.

Cricket and climate change

This is another terrific piece by Tanya Aldred, who was one of the first, if not the first, to raise public awareness of the subject.

It’s a lovely sunny morning in Headingley, which contradicts the predictions. There is a chance of rain later, although you never really know with these things.

Team News

Both teams are unchanged. Next!

England Roy, Bairstow, Salt, Root, Buttler (c/wk), Livingstone, Ali, Curran, Willey, Rashid, Topley.

South Africa Malan, de Kock (wk), van der Dussen, Markram, Klaasen, Miller, Pretorious, Maharaj (c), Nortje, Ngidi, Shamsi.

South Africa win the toss and beat

Too bad for it to be advantageous to play bowling. Keshav Maharaj says the pitch is looking a bit dry so South Africa want to give their spinners the best chance of taking wickets.

Jos Buttler says England were “a bit 50/50” but probably would have bowled.

Preexample

Sunday: rest day. And, in English cricket in July 2022, resolution. For the second Sunday in a row, England are involved in a decisive ODI series. A week ago they bowed out to genius Rishabh Pant at Old Trafford a week ago; today they will be hoping for a better result against South Africa at Headingley.

Two-sided series tend not to get tattooed on the brain – if you don’t believe me, try naming the England XI for the first ODI against the Netherlands last month, then try naming the Netherlands XI – but they sometimes find a home in the subconscious. It’s a quietly important game for an England side that have suffered from a crisis of confidence in recent weeks.

In a world where perception trumps reality, the line between blip and terminal decline can be very thin. If England lose a third straight set of white balls, the end-of-an-era talk will be amplified. But if they win, they will feel a lot better about their lives ahead of Wednesday’s T20 series.

We haven’t said it too often over the past seven years, but England need more of their batters. They started the ODI summer by scoring almost 500 against the Netherlands; since then they have not reached 300.

Jos Buttler would also like a little more luck with the draw. He lost important ones against India at the Oval and South Africa at Chester-le-Street. With mixed prospects at Headingley, it will surely be a decent advantage to play first.

The game starts at 11 a.m.with the draw at 10:30 a.m.
