Proteas 'comfortable' to stay in terror-struck UK

Rita Gibson | 24 May, 2017, 16:41

But, while a lavish ceremony for the #T20 Global Destination League will be held in London on June 18, De Villiers made it clear that the Proteas have to stay focused on their three-match ODI series against England and the Champions Trophy.

Allrounders Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes, together with wicketkeeper Jos Buttler, were all given permission to miss England's opening two ODIs this season against Morgan's native Ireland and instead extend their IPL stints.

Whatever happens to England this summer, Eoin Morgan is determined to make sure they never lose their cool - even in the intense heat of tournament cricket.

Imran Tahir:The 38-year-old leg-spinner has shown that old is gold. It's a very good position to be in.

"The talent we have in the squad is unbelievable". They are one of the best sides in world cricket as shown by their number one ranking in the ODI format. In the past one year, he has been South Africa's key bowler, picking 35 wickets in 2016/17. They're a very strong team and a hard team to beat. What we've done well in the past is focus on ourselves and our strengths, particularly at home.

"It's a huge benefit having three match-winners come back into the team having watched them contribute so much to the IPL", Morgan told reporters at Headingley on Tuesday.

But there is now a bitter subtext to the on-field action as the nation continues to react to the terror attack in Manchester on Monday night, which killed 22 people. And that, sets up a mouth-watering series just ahead of the short and crisp Champions Trophy.

Along with condemning the attack as "abhorrent and despicable", Moosajee also said the South Africa squad wanted to take a stand by not being intimidated in the aftermath of the incident.

Hello and welcome to the live blog of the 1st One-Day International between England and South Africa at Headingley.

Senior batsmen Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis both hit half-centuries as South Africa completed their preparations for a one-day worldwide series against England with a narrow 13-run win over Northamptonshire at Wantage Road on Sunday.

In this South Africa tour of England in this year 2017, both of the team playing three ODI matches, three T20 matches, and four-Test cricket matches. The team had good results against Australia and Sri Lanka. After providing New Balance with a motivation as to why they are the ultimate Proteas fans, the supporters were treated to a once in a lifetime experience; a surprise visit to their home from Proteas including Dale Steyn, Temba Bavuma and Tabraiz Shamsi, who delivered the kit and personally thanked them for their support of the team.
