South Africa will take on England in the second T20I at Kingsmead in Durban tonight. South Africa lead 1-0 in the series after beating the visitors by 1 run in first T20I in East London.
In the first T20I in East London, both South Africa and England played good cricket but both the sides need some improvements. South Africa got a good start but due to lack of batting depth they couldn't finish it well and fell short of a big score and in the bowling their bowlers need to do better in the powerplay where they are leaking plenty of runs.
On the other hand, England also missed a finisher and they also need to think about Joe Denly's role in the playing XI. Overall England's team is more balanced and they should continue to do well.
