England vs South Africa T20 Series, Schedule 2022

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has announced plans to host South Africa for a three-match bilateral T20 series from July to September 2022. The England vs. South Africa T20I series 2022 will begin with the first T20I at County Ground, Bristol on July 27, 2022, followed by the second T20I at Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on July 28, and the series will conclude with the third T20I at Rose Bowl, Southampton on July 31, 2022.

Eoin Morgan, a left-handed skipper for the English team, will captain the team, while Temba Bavuma will captain the Proteas. In terms of ICC T20 team rankings, England is first, followed by South Africa at number five. There is a significant difference in their rankings, but South Africa has talented players who can turn the game at any time.

As of December 2021, England had played 143 T20 internationals, winning 75, losing 61, tying two, and having five matches end in a tie. South Africa, on the other hand, has played 147 T20I matches, winning 85, losing 60, tying one, and going undefeated in one. South Africa played 23 T20I matches in 2021, winning 15 and losing 8, while England played 17 T20I matches, winning 11 and losing 6.

In terms of head-to-head matches, both teams have faced each other in 22 T20I matches, with England winning 20 of them, losing 11 and one going undecided. Here, England appears to rule over Africa. If England has power hitters like Dawid Malan, who is ranked second in the ICC rankings, Africa also has Aiden Markram, who is ranked third, so there will be a very close competition between both teams in the upcoming month of 2022.
