The second T20I between South Africa and England is scheduled to take place at Boland Park on Sunday.
England came up trumps in a close encounter in the first T20I with Jonny Bairstow starring in a middle-order role alongside ace all-rounder Ben Stokes. Despite the duo of Jason Roy and Jos Buttler failing at the top of the order, England's superior depth in batting shone against South Africa, who dominated most parts of the game.
South Africa, however, would be pondering a few changes with Anrich Nortje and David Miller waiting on the wings. With a decent roster available, Quinton de Kock has a few options to try out as the build-up to the next T20 World Cup continues for both nations.
Although the English have momentum on their side, they are in for another riveting contest against the Proteas, who would be eager to level the series in Paarl. All in all, an exciting game of cricket beckons on Sunday with a lot on the line for both sides at Boland Park.

A competitive track awaits the two sides in Paarl with some help on offer for the spinners. Apart from turn available off the surface, the pacers should also find some success with change of pace as the match progresses. The batsmen will need to get their eye in before going big in the back end with wickets in hand being crucial to either side's fortunes.
