The 1st ODI of the England tour of South Africa, 2020 will see the clash between South Africa and England at the Boland Park, Paarl on Sunday, 6 December 2020. Keep reading to find out the England tour of South Africa, 2020 1st ODI SA vs ENG Match Prediction. This game was scheduled to be held on Friday, 4th December. But due to a Covid positive case found in the South African team, the two cricket boards agreed to postpone this game to Sunday, 6th December.
It was sheer dominance from the visitors in the T20I series. They inflicted a clean sweep by winning all three games. Now the Englishmen are in the format in which they are the world champions. The challenge gets even tougher for South Africa who are already experiencing some torrid times.
England would be without the services of Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer. These two have been rested for the ODI series. They are impactful players and their absence could work in the favour of South Africa. However, the world champions always seem to find heroes that win them matches from any situation.

Cape Town has been a high-scoring venue which is what we saw in the T20I series. There was true bounce and the batsmen had a great time on it. Another high scoring match is on the cards at Newlands.
It’s going to be cloudy in Cape Town on Friday. But rain is not expected to intervene. The maximum temperature would be 25°C and the humidity would be around 50%.
The matches of the shortest format went in favour of the team batting second. But things change drastically when the 50-over format kicks in. The teams might opt to bat first after winning the toss.
