SA vs ENG 2nd Test: South Africa and England will be taking on each other in the second Test match of the three-match series at Emirates Old Trafford Stadium in Manchester.

The match starts on August 25 and will run til 29th August 2022. South Africa thrashed England in the first Test of the series, beating them by an innings and 12 runs. The Proteas bundled England out twice on paltry scores of 165 and 149.

South Africa has an outstanding bowling attack and the likes of Rabada, Nortje, Ngidi, and Jansen are, once again, likely to pose a lot of questions. Kagiso Rabada led the charge in the first innings of the first Test match as he picked up a five-for. A collective bowling performance led to England’s undoing when they came out to bat in their second innings.

The surface at Old Trafford assists spinners and, thus, Keshav Maharaj is also likely to have a role to play in the Test match. With the bat, Elgar, Keegan Petersen and Markam will be the ones to watch out for.

England batters failed in 1st Test

England’s batters need to bat a lot better than how they batted in the first Test match. Barring Ollie Pope, none of the batters stepped up to the task. The likes of Joe Root, Ben Stokes, and Jonny Bairstow failed to hit the straps as England never got going in the first Test.

All three need to come up with substantial performances if they fancy their chances in the next Test match. England has only made one change to the playing XI for the second Test match. Ollie Robinson is fit to play and he marks his return to the side. He will share fast bowling duties alongside James Anderson and Stuart Broad.
