ENG vs SA World Cup 2023 Live Score Updates: England would hope to have their star all-rounder Ben Stokes back for their World Cup clash against South Africa in Mumbai on Saturday as both teams seek a course correction after shock defeats in their previous outings. Having recorded the highest total of this competition (428/5) previously, South Africa crumbled against the Netherlands in a rain-truncated game in Dharamsala for their first loss in the competition. Similarly, England too caved in to pressure when Afghanistan brought out their best with the ball in Delhi. England may have a 4-3 record over South Africa in 50-over World Cup history but it is the Proteas who have had a better run in this edition. South Africa sizzled at the start of the tournament beating Australia and Sri Lanka by more than 100 runs but their second consecutive defeat in ICC events to the Netherlands showed the Proteas’ vulnerability under pressure. A defeat to the Dutch notwithstanding, South Africa will have enough confidence in their ranks to outgun England, who are struggling almost in all departments and are yet to put a collective effort on the field. England have been largely rusty and inconsistent despite having a dangerous squad on paper. They are likely to have the services of their “spiritual leader” Ben Stokes for the game at Wankhede. Stokes missed the first three games due to a hip injury. Jos Buttler’s men took a battering at the hands of New Zealand in the tournament-opener and despite bossing over a feeble Bangladesh, they were bludgeoned by Afghanistan in the World Cup’s first upset. With scores of 43, 20 and 9 in three matches so far, Buttler has not made a mark on the tournament in conditions he has extensive knowledge of. If Buttler is a concern in the middle-order, Liam Livingstone’s returns of 20, 0 and 10 in three matches give England more headache in the lower order.Read Less
