England and South Africa will be looking to return to winning ways as they clash in the 20th match of the ICC World Cup 2023 at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium on Saturday, October 21. Both teams suffered shocking defeats against lower-ranked teams in their respective previous games and now face each other on a fresh surface in Mumbai.

South Africa started the tournament with two dominant wins but suffered a shock upset in their most recent game against Netherlands. The Proteas will avoid panic over one defeat and enter this game as favourites having won two of three ODI encounters against the Three Lions in 2023.

ENG vs SA Pitch Report:

Wankhede Stadium hosts its first game of the tournament and fans can expect a balanced surface on Saturday. Wankhede Stadium has a favourable surface for the batters in the past 50-over games and teams will definitely look to scorch big totals while batting first. Captains are likely to field first after winning the toss keeping the dew factor in mind. Teams batting second have won 15 of 29 ODI matches played here so toss is unlikely to make a big difference on Saturday.
