England Vs South Africa match is going to be very important for both the teams. The two may be hoping to prove everyone wrong and clinch the ICC T20 World Cup 2016 title. Nonetheless the way ahead will be tough as the two don’t seem to have much luck in international tournament for quite sometimes.

South Africa seem to understand the Indian conditions better than any other team. They amazed the Indian cricket team in their last tour of the country and they will try to do the same in this tournament. And England will be in a fix to tackle a team that seems to have mastered the art of spin bowling quite well.

A report in the CricInfo while describing the condition of England cricket team says, “England are uncomfortably well acquainted with early exits from world events, so there’s no disguising the peril that they once again find themselves in. The World T20’s main event has barely got underway and yet, if England fail to turn an ebbing tide in which they have lost six limited-overs fixtures in a row – including their last five against Friday night’s rivals, South Africa – they will be teetering on the brink before any other side has played their second game”.
