Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali will lead the batting responsibilites in the middle order for England in this 1st match against South Africa.

South Africa Team
Putting a big score on the board will be the responsibility of Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis. These 3 have to play a notable knock at the top to give South Africa team a great start against England’s bowlers. Jean-Paul Duminy, David Miller and Aiden Markram also have the ability to bat deep and take the team to a comfort zone in this 1st ODI match of World Cup 2019.
If England have the strongest batting lineup, then South Africa have the most dangerous bowling attack in the form of Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi and Imran Tahir. The team would want these bowlers especially the pacers to attack England’s batsmen from the start.
