South Africa vs. England ODI 1 of 3: Can ‘visitors get off to winning start’ in Cape Town?



England take on South Africa once again on the cricket field, with the two sides beginning their three-ODI series this week.

The game takes place on Tuesday, where the hosts will be aiming to bounce back from the 3-1 Test series loss to the same opponents last month.

The current ODI standings undoubtedly favour the visitors, who sit top of the ICC rankings. South Africa occupy fourth spot, and will be looking to climb the leaderboard with a win in the upcoming series.
