ENG VS SA: South Africa’s tour of England has been well and truly competitive. The visitors have by far been dominant in the overseas conditions.
On the other hand, the hosts found it tough to compete with South Africa so far. The ODI series between both the team ended in a draw at 1-1.
The third ODI ended as no result due to rain. Coming to the T20I series, England drew first blood in the series before losing the next two games at the hands of South Africa.
Proteas won the T20I series by 2-1. Now, both teams are involved in the first of the three-match Test series. The Test opener is taking place at Lord’s, London.
Proteas Test captain Dean Elgar won the toss and elected to bowl first. The Proteas bowlers displayed world-class performance as they went on to bundle out England for a mere 165.
ENG VS SA: AB de Villiers makes an accurate prediction
Ben Stokes who took charge as Test captain recently is yet to lose a Test match under his leadership. England failed to bring the best out of themselves in the first innings.
Proteas fast bowler Kagiso Rabada ripped through the defence of England’s batting line-up like a hot knife through butter. He took 5 wickets and bowled 3 maiden overs.
In fact, AB de Villiers took to Twitter and posted a prediction and it was spot on. According to his tweet, Rabada would bag five wickets in the afternoon.
“Nothing like Test Cricket!! Great morning for SA?Rabada my pick for 5 this afternoon,” AB de Villiers tweeted. His tweet went viral in no time.
At the time of writing this article, Proteas are in a comfortable position scoring 27 runs. Dean Elgar and Sarel Erwee are batting on 12 and 13 respectively.
