The three-game ODI series kicks off at Headingley on Wednesday and we've got the best bets.
England entertain South Africa in a three match series that both sides will approach as a warm up act to the Champions Trophy. We start at Yorkshire’s home ground Headingley, where big scores in all formats of domestic cricket have been a regular occurrence this season. Even minnows Derbyshire have managed to score upwards of 300 at this ground recenty so a high-scoring encounter looks on the cards.
Looking towards the Proteas and star keeper-batsmen Quinton de Kock is in fine form, scoring 104 off just 74 balls in a warm-up game against Sussex two weeks ago. Add this to multiple quick-fire 50’s against New Zealand on their last tour and you have a player in rude health heading into this game. The left hander won’t be inconvenienced by the hosts quick attack so an investment on him to top the tourists' batting at 7/2 could prove fruitful. If you’d prefer a bigger price he’s 15/2 to be top batsman in the game.
