Match Facts
  • Joe Root is in contention to make his 150th ODI appearance, he would become only the 7th man to record that many for England; he's also 38 away from reaching 6,000 runs in the format, he would become the second man to get there for England (Morgan).
  • Sam Billings (England) has scored 315 runs at an average of 78.8 across his six ODI knocks so far in 2020; he could only muster a rate of 22.6 before this calendar year in the format (12 innings).
  • Dwaine Pretorius (South Africa) has been ruled out of this series with England, he has not featured in a men's ODI since ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019; only Kemar Roach (65.5%) had a higher dot ball rate than Pretorius (63.6%) at that tournament (10+ overs bowled).
  • Among those to log 8+ knocks versus England, only two men (Michael Bevan & Lahiru Thirimanne) have ever registered a better men's ODI average against them than South Africa's Quinton de Kock (65.3); he struck a century when England last faced the Proteas at Newlands in this format (107 in February 2020).
