ENG VS SA 2nd Test, Today Match Pitch Report, Predicted Playing Xi, Today Cricket Match, Live Streaming Details, Dream 11 Prediction

As they face South Africa, England will look to avenge their loss in the opening Test match. After being named England captain, Ben Stokes experienced his first defeat.

He will endeavor to learn from his mistakes in the upcoming Test match. Here is a look at the Dream11 for the second Test in Manchester, where South Africa feels very confident.

England Team News 

After winning four straight Test matches this summer, England was dealt a crushing defeat at Lord’s as their batting lineup was twice destroyed by South Africa.

This was the first loss for England under Ben Stokes’ permanent test captaincy.

Zak Crawley’s torturous run of form cannot continue for much longer, with the lack of alternative opening options possibly being the primary factor keeping him in the team at the moment. However, England is unlikely to panic into making changes.

Although Crawley has been on the verge of selection the entire summer, one of the top domestic batters of the season, Harry Brook, might replace him and open. However, that would be a very significant change.

South Africa News-

There were concerns about South Africa’s batting lineup going into this series, but they held up well enough at Lord’s to score 326 in their first and only innings after England scored 165.

This proved to be more than enough for the Proteas’ outstanding bowling attack to work with, as they then destroyed England once more for 149 to secure an innings victory.

Kagiso Rabada was a worry for the first Test, but after clearing a fitness test, the fast bowler showed why he is one of the top players in the world, taking seven wickets over the match, including a five-wicket haul, and having shows no real evil effect from that ankle injury, Rabada should be ready to go again in Manchester.

It wouldn’t be surprising if the tourists replaced one of their four pacemen (likely Lungi Ngidi) with a second spin-bowler, Simon Harmer, to accompany Keshav Maharaj because Emirates Old Trafford surfaces have a reputation for favoring spin in Test cricket.

Other than that potential move, the South African team is anticipated to remain the same.


Since the selection of Stokes and Brendon McCullum as Test captain and coach, respectively, and with the utmost respect for both New Zealand and India, England has easily faced the strongest bowling unit.

South Africa possesses all three, and when a player of Harmer’s calibre is carrying beverages, it speaks volumes about how powerful they are.

The ancient weaknesses of England surfaced, and this time there was no beating one’s way out of problems.

As Root and Bairstow again cheaply fell, so did England’s hopes, and this time around, things won’t be any simpler. Although South Africa’s batting may not be as good as their bowling, they are persistent and tenacious.

South Africa will be a difficult opponent no matter what type of surface is set up at Emirates Old Trafford.

In contrast, a pitch that offers nothing to any bowler greatly reduces the likelihood of a result, which England desperately needs given that they are trailing the three-match series 0-1; Rabada and Anrich Nortje can work their magic on a fast pitch, Maharaj (and possibly Harmer) enter the game on a pitch that turns, and all three of these bowlers can succeed.

Whatever happens in this second Test, anticipate the ball to rule the roost over the bat on both sides, and betting on total runs scored under 956.5 has to be favored.

Pitch Report: ENG vs. SA

The Old Trafford pitch has recently benefited the hitters while also giving the spinners a lot of room to maneuver. The bounce on the field may prove to be another weapon for Kagiso Rabada, who was at his fiercest in the first Test.

Teams can bet on their chances while chasing on Day 5, but a score of over 400 should be required due to the lack of rain and hot, humid weather.
