Headingley is all set to host its first ODI game since the 2019 ICC WC. Traditionally the ground has been a happy hunting ground for pace bowlers, with great bounce and pace in the wicket but enough in it to keep the batters in the game. Chasing has been easier on this ground as the pitch eases out with time and dew sets in but the predicted showers may spring up surprises.

The average temperature is expected to be around 21°C and the forecast has predicted that shown there’s a high chance of rain and it looks like we’re in for another truncated game.

ENG vs SA: Dream 11 Top Picks

Reece Topley: The left-hander has been in a purple patch of sorts, picking up wickets in every game and proving to be quiet a menance for batters. On this true wicket at Leeds, Topley will be a great weapon, extracting the bounce and pace in the wicket and making the batters uncomfortable. In a series decider, his opening spell will be crucial to the teams success.

Adrian Markram: Markram may have not found his footing in this format but has strung together some strong performance and will look to cash on the good form and make it big. A strong batter of spin who can accelerate as we saw in first game, he will be an important cog in the middle order for the Proteas on pitch that does offer seamers some assistance in the start and is a happy hunting ground for spinners.
