England team after facing a loss in the first ODI at Durham will be fighting to save the series against inform South African team at Manchester. In the first ODI England bowling went very expensive as bowlers were only able to scalp five wickets and batting also looked ordinary which cost them a 62 runs loss in the series opener.

England are a loss away from a second successive ODI series defeat at home. To level the series the home team will be looking to include star pacer Reece Topley in the playing XI who was given rest in the first match. England batting under Buttler, Bairstow, Root & Livingstone need to take responsibility of getting runs on-board.

South Africa who looked calm and composed in the first match will not be making any change in the playing XI. Proteas batting is in great touch under Van der Dussen, Miller and will be hoping to get runs from Quinton de Kock and Malan in the second match.

South African bowling seemed sharp in the opener under Anrich Nortje who scalped 4/53 in 8.5 overs. Keshav Maharaja will be expecting Ngidi and Phenlukwayo to take wickets in the second ODI and seal the three-match series in style.
