The upcoming first T20I between South Africa and England will be played at the Buffalo Park in East London. Their 20-overs fixture is scheduled for Wednesday, February 12. The match will start at 9:30 PM IST.
The England cricket team are currently on a tour to South Africa to play four Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is over the course of 60 days in the country. England started the tour on a triumphant note, defeating the Proteas 3-1 in the Test matches. The ODI tussle that followed ended in a hard-fought draw.
In T20Is, South Africa are currently on an unbeaten streak as the last time they lost a series was back in 2018 to Sri Lanka. England have also won their last four T20I series with convincing margins, with their most recent win coming in New Zealand in 2019.
