ENGLAND vs SOUTH AFRICA ICC WORLD CUP 2011
Date: 6 March 2011 – Time: 9:00 AM GMT
Another big match on 6th March as we whave two teams going head to headl, with one of them now fighting to get into the quarter Finals as England try to get somthing out of this match against South Africa whcih will be played at chennai cricket stadium and it will be interesting to see whether England bowling can contain South African run mechines like Amla, De Villiers and other inform players. England are coming into this match on the back of a very poor match against Ireland when they could not defend a total of 328 against on of the minnows and register one of the biggest shocks in the World Cup history.
South Africa on the other hand are playing some sublime cricket at the moment with their star players all in form and playing on top of their game while their bowling is very stable as well compared to England, AB Divilliers in such a great form at the moment and it will be intersting to see How England cope with him and SA batting order.
This match will be played under flood lights which would mean that team chasing will have some difficult time, and historicaly Chennai have been a high scoring ground and I can see another 300 runs match again. Only time will tell whether England have enough in their tank to make a comeback after a shambolik defeat in the hands of Ireland. Predictions: South Africa are playing too good for my liking to be beaten by England, I can see only 1 result in this one and that is a South Africa win.
