South Africa plays first T20 against England tonight

The three-year deal with Cricket South Africa covers 59 all-format games including 20 India South Africa bilateral games

It was to kickstart with a three-match T20I series against India but the matches could not take place because of the Coronavirus situation and lockdown.

Sanjog Gupta, CEO - sports, Star India, said, "We are delighted to collaborate with Cricket South Africa".

The game will be played at Newlands, Cape Town on November 27, 2020, and will begin at 6:00 pm local time and 9:30 pm Indian Standard Time (IST). Meanwhile, you have arrived at the right platform, if you are looking for SA vs ENG Dream11 team prediction along with tips to pick best playing XI.

Where and when do England play their three IT20 matches?

Early season pitches in South Africa tend to give some help to both pace and spin, so it is possible that the matches could provide a reasonable contest between bat and ball instead of providing feasts of attacking batting.

Star's cricket rights portfolio is already expansive, including agreements with the International Cricket Council (ICC), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Indian Premier League (IPL).


South Africa: Quinton De Kock (Captain and WK), Rassie van der Dussen, Faf Du Plessis, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Andile Pheklukawayo/Reeza Hendricks, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, and Anrich Nortje. England played last T20I series against Pakistan at home which ended by 1-1 draw.

Archer and Stokes turned out for Rajasthan Royals and Curran represented the Chennai Super Kings in the recently concluded IPL 2020 in the United Arab Emirates.

England are the reigning 50-over champions and will look to assert their dominance over South Africa, who will be led by wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock.

The first Twenty 20 worldwide is in Cape Town on Friday as South Africa return to global cricket after a seven-month coronavirus-induced shutdown.

England have not played since their series against Australia but Archer, captain Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow and Sam Curran all played regularly during the IPL.

South African selection convener Victor Mpitsang said South Africa's big squad would cover both series.
