South Africa have won the toss and have opted to field

Skipper’s at Toss

Morgan: Would’ve looked to do the same. The wicket looks really good. It’s set fair all day, shouldn’t change much. Yes, Wood was available for selection. But unfortunately, he’s missed out. Archer’s a guy who’s come in and impressed. He’s very calm when he plays. He’s a very exciting prospect. Yeah, the favorites tag sits comfortably. It’s been a collective drive for us.

Faf: Going to have a bowl. Early start at the Oval, if there’s anything in the wicket, it’s now. Shamsi, Miller, Morris, Steyn not playing. Steyn’s around 80%. The start of the World Cup. It’s going to be a good one. Ngidi and KG have been exceptional over the last couple of years. Good to see Amla scoring runs in the warm-up.

Skipper’s Talk

Eoin Morgan: “Level of expectation and the favorites tag is there for a reason. Our form over the last two years at home. In particular, has been outstanding. In other World Cups, we’ve gone in with very little expectation and not done very well. I’d pick this position over that.”

Faf du Plessis: “For us as a leadership group, it’s trying to find how can we be most attacking and trying to get wickets. Obviously, that was with Dale included but that changed now, so we’ll look at setting up our team to try to make sure we can get guys on the team that can get wickets.”

Playing XI

South Africa: Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock(w), Aiden Markram, Faf du Plessis(c), Rassie van der Dussen, Jean-Paul Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir

England: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan(c), Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler(w), Moeen Ali, Chris Woakes, Liam Plunkett, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid
