Both teams were knocked out of the ICC Champions Trophy. Not enough time has passed for them to forget it so easily. They will be bogged down by that memory for sure. But hey!! New Day. New Game. New Tournament.
They will look forward to create fresh and better memories. The three match T-20 series is a good opportunity get back in the groove. England have shown that they need to be feared, by winning most of their matches and lasting till the semis. South Africa needs to up their game. Both England and South Africa are good sides nevertheless.
The series will be worth a watch.
Coming to the lineup, there are a few plays who displayed outstanding cricket in the recent past. Having them on your lineup will definitely up your chances. Course, the lineup could change for the second and third match depending on form and possible injury. England have pulled out Ben Stokes, Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali in the name of rest. Some new boys have entered the game - Dawid Malan, Tom Curran, Liam Livingstone and Craig Overton.
My team on the app for the first match would be -
AB De Villiers
