South Africa's winning run in ODI Series came to an end at Southampton on Saturday when they went down by two runs to England in the second of three ODIs. The result gives England a 2-0 series lead with only the final match at Lord’s on Monday still to be played.

The Proteas led throughout the match on comparative run rate, having been set 331 for victory, until the fourth ball of the last over. David Miller and Chris Morris needed 7 off the last over from Mark Wood to clinch victory but only managed 4 runs. Miller finished unbeaten on 71 (51 balls, 5 fours and 2 sixes) and Morris on 36 (22 balls, 3 fours and 2 sixes) as the pair shared a partnership of 62 for the sixth wicket in 6.3 overs.

South Africa will be looking to correct the ‘mistakes’ from the previous match in the second One-Day International (ODI) against England at the Ageas Bowl on Saturday. The Proteas face a must-win situation following the 72-run loss on Wednesday, which Faf du Plessis has described as disappointing and below par for a team with high standards and expectations.

Du Plessis says the opening match was an opportunity to dust off any early-season cobwebs, and expects an improved performance in the bid to keep the series alive.

South Africa were unable to build on the foundation laid by Hashim Amla and Faf du Plessis and succumbed to a 72-run defeat to England in the first of three ODIs at Headingley on Wednesday.

The task was always going to be difficult after England posted a total of 339/6 but the Proteas were ahead on comparative run rate for much of their innings. Amla and Du Plessis put on 112 for the second wicket to stabilise the innings after the early loss of Quinton de Kock but thereafter the Proteas could not post decent partnerships with the next best being the 37 for the ninth wicket between Wayne Parnell and Kagiso Rabada.

AB de Villiers returns to captain the Standard Bank Proteas in the first One-Day International (ODI) against England at Headingley in Leeds on Wednesday. De Villiers missed the two warm-up matches due to a respiratory tract infection, but has made a satisfactory recovery for the series-opener.

The 33-year-old says the three-match series signals the start of the journey towards the ICC Champions Trophy final, and is the perfect opportunity to set the tone for the next four weeks.

South African batsman, Hashim Amla, says the three-match One-Day International (ODI) series against England starting on Wednesday is the perfect platform to ‘hone their skills’ ahead of the ICC Champions Trophy starting on June 1.

The number-one ranked Proteas have won 14 of the last 16 ODI’s, and will be searching for some pre-tournament consistency and confidence against a quality and ‘well-balanced’ home team who thrive in their backyard. The series will also give the coaching staff an opportunity to try out potential combinations and strategies as preparation intensifies ahead of the eight-team tournament.
