England v South Africa Third T20 - Warm up for the World Cup?

England and South Africa meet in the third and final Twenty20 match of this series on Wednesday when they meet at Edgbaston.

With South Africa 1-0 up in the series, England will know that they cannot win, but will be going all out of the victory in this match to build momentum for the T20 World Cup which takes place later in the month.

In truth, that will be both sides main focus now and they could use this as a warm-up match for the tournament in Sri Lanka – experimenting with the team and seeing if any areas need strengthening.

Stuart Broad will be the man who captains the England side in this one and he will want to lead by example with the ball. Broad is not the most experienced captain, so will be desperate to show that he is capable of leading the side to victory here.

The Three Lions have been very impressive in all forms of the game over recent years, but have hit a dip in form at the moment. It is now Broad and Andy Flower’s job to re-install confidence in the squad and get their tactic right – which should deliver success.

As for South Africa, they are a team full of confidence and momentum at the moment after a fantastic summer so far.

AB de Villiers will be hoping that his team have hit their peak just in time for the World T20 and will know how important a result is here to keep the spirits in the camp very high. If they can manage that, then the Proteas will be a force to be reckoned with in Sri Lanka.

If we look at the latest betting offers for this encounter, then you can see that South Africa are the favourites to come out on top on Wednesday with odds of 4/5 with Paddy Power.

England are then being offered at 11/10 to level the series.

Looking at the odds for the T20 World Cup at this early stage, the Proteas are at 6/1, whilst England can be backed at 15/2 with Blue Square.

England v South Africa - Who can take the Man of the Match award in the final ODI?

England and South Africa lock horns in the fifth and final one day international at Trent Bridge on Wednesday in a day/night match.

With the series currently 2-1 in favour of the home side, it is certainly all to play for and this is a huge match between two of the best teams in the world.

It may take something special to seperate these two, so who can come up with that bit of magic and take the Man of the Match award?

At the moment it is Hashim Amla who is the favourite with odds of 8/1 with Paddy Power. It is no surprise as Amla has been a run machine over much of the summer and scored an incredibly impressive 150 in the first ODI of the series.

Eoin Morgan is then one of England’s best chances of taking the Man of the Match accolade. He can be backed at 10/1. The Three Lions are a better ODI side when Morgan is involved as he can hit the ball all over the park and is one of the best at taking a game away from the opposition.

Few can produce the kind of knocks that Morgan can and he will be looking to build on his two impressive innings in recent matches.

Other betting offers include both Captain’s Alistair Cook and AB De Villiers at 12/1 with SkyBet.

Both of these will be looking to lead by example and be desperate for a victory.

In terms of bowlers that are being tipped for the award, Dale Steyn is also available at 12/1, he is the main man with the ball for South Africa and regarded by many as the best bowler in the world at the moment.

Then there is James Anderson, who is the senior operator in the England attack. He is being offered at 16/1.

The likes of Graeme Smith, Ian Bell and Morne Morkel will then all be hopeful of putting in a performance worthy of taking the Man of the Match award.
