    England defeat South Africa by 104 runs to begin World Cup campaign on a strong note

    Morgan embraces pressure of being favourites

    Eoin Morgan promised England will not fold under the pressure of being World Cup favourites ahead of Thursday’s opener against South Africa.

    Ranked first in ODI cricket, England have won 15 of their 19 series since going out in the pool stages at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2015.

    They brushed aside Pakistan 4-0 earlier this month and, although they lost their warm-up match with Australia, saw off Afghanistan in their final contest on Monday.

    Morgan confirmed his squad has a full bill of health, after injury concerns for Mark Wood, Jofra Archer and Liam Dawson, and declared his side ready for action.

    “We have spoken about it as a group, the level of expectation and the favourites tag is there for a reason,” he said.

    “Over the last two years, particularly at home, we have been outstanding and that is the reason it is there.

    “In past World Cups I have played in and some of the others have played in, we have gone with little expectation and not done that well. I would pick this position instead.

    “There is a lot of belief within the dressing room. We are confident with our own game. The first game of any World Cup or Ashes feels different and that is natural.

    “Dealing with it is a challenge in itself but one we are looking forward to. A win [against South Africa] under any circumstances will do.”

    England will hope to emulate their female counterparts after they won the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2017 on home soil.

    The men’s football team also gripped the nation with their run to the World Cup semi-finals last summer and manager Gareth Southgate passed on his words of advice earlier this month.

    The two teams’ journeys are remarkably similar and Morgan believes his side can also inspire the country.

    “We did the session with Gareth and it was brilliant,” he added.

    “Every one of our players enjoyed it. He got up and talked about his journey with the team, especially in the build-up and how they increased expectations.

    “Everyone who has been in our team recognised that they were in the same place we were four years ago. Hopefully we can match what they did.”

    To do that, a fast start is essential but South Africa – ranked third in the world – will pose a major threat at The Oval, even without fast bowler Dale Steyn who is missing with a shoulder injury.

    But it is the conditions which worry Morgan most, with cloud expected for much of the morning.

    “In every World Cup, something stands out. And in this one, it could be that every team is three or four down early on because of the overhead conditions,” he added.

    “We are prepared for that and it is something we will overcome. They are a well-rounded team, they are coming into a tournament with confidence.

    “They have coped without Dale Steyn often for about a year and a half. They have cover. The last time they were here, Dale wasn’t and they were fine.”

    Du Plessis relishes underdogs tag

    Faf du Plessis ramped up the pressure on hosts England, insisting Thursday’s World Cup opener is a free swing for his underdog South Africa side.

    The Proteas skipper will lead his side out at The Oval against the world’s top-ranked team, who are also chasing their maiden ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup trophy this summer.

    England have won 15 of their last 19 ODI series and are the early favourites on home soil.

    That is a tag South Africa have been used to at recent World Cups but they are also chasing their first trophy and, despite being ranked third in the world, Du Plessis insists they will play without fear.

    “Whether you are favourites or not, you still have to play good cricket,” he said.

    “They deservedly have the tag because they are the home nation and have consistently played good cricket.

    “But you will face such different opposition through this tournament so it is about making sure you stay focussed for the whole tournament.

    “England are the favourites so if it means on the day there is less pressure on us then we can play freely.

    “We are going in as underdogs and if that releases some players in the team then that is great.”

    For South Africa to stop England in their tracks, taking wickets will be essential.

    England captain Eoin Morgan claimed their current top seven is the best they have ever had and much of the pre-tournament talk has surrounded the prospect of them becoming the first side to score 500 runs in ODI cricket.

    The loss of seamer Dale Steyn is a further boost for England, with the 35-year-old ruled out with a shoulder injury.

    However, South Africa still boast a formidable pace attack led by Kagiso Rabada, the fifth-ranked bowler in ODI cricket.

    “KG does not need any guidance from me,” Du Plessis added.

    “I can speak to him from a tactical point of view but I won’t tell him how to bowl, he knows more than I do.

    “It is about setting him free. World Cups are for people to perform and KG will want to make this his stage.

    “Dale is a big loss to our team but we expected it. When we picked the squad he was 60 per cent ready so we anticipated for this to happen.

    “But a fit Dale Steyn makes our attack a strong one so we need to make a few changes to our team for England.

    “Our bowling is one of our X-factors. We have pace with Steyn, Rabada and [Lungi] Ngidi and that changes now. That is plan A for the World Cup in terms of our balance.”

    From our perspective, I'd rather have England win. England will make the semis anyways, whereas South Africa will be competing with us for that 4th spot.

    SA are too reliant on their bowling, they remind me of Pakistan sides of yesteryear. Batting looks a bit light, but with that pace attack they could knock over some good sides. More of a spoiler side than a genuine world cup hopeful.

    I predict if England bat first 330-350, SA all out 270-290

    SA is only team who have been competitive against England in england .They could have easily draw the 2017 odi series 2-2 in eng. if they have avoided epic choke in 3rd odi.

    Nevertheless England are strong favourites but if conditions did favour fast bowlers it can be very close game

    I think SA may win this. England are vulnerable to bouncers and SA pace attack is strong. Get roy out cheaply and you have good chance of beating england, just like you get fakhar out cheaply, you have a good chance of beating pak. From watching SA, they always go hard against south africans who have turn their back on SA and play for england. So im expecting roy to get peppered with bouncers and a few words said to him.

    I dunno if SA winning this would be beneficial to us or not.
    As would have a big win out of the way and I doubt eng would be too affected by the loss.
    It will just make It harder for pak to qualify if SA win this.

    True! However, if pak wins 6 games they make it to the semis. Obviously if matches are washed out for other teams ,then pak can qualify to semis by winning less games and conversely, if pak matches are washed out(especially against the lower rank teams) pak will have to win more than 6 games. Lots of permitations. Best just win your own matches and not rely on others.
    If england lose to SA, aussies, NZ and india or pakistan- they are out. I think all of these teams are capabke of beating england. Also, i think WI on their day can beat england. Crucial opening game for england. Too many people think england have this wc in the bag, i dont think they will win it.

    There are different ways of looking at this. Ideally, I would want eng to lose their first 4 games and possibly one other game and then get knocked out but realistically that won't happen

    South Africa are a very weak side they have no chance they will get blown away by everyone in this tournament and they are professional chokers and extremely consistent in it as well so it should be an easy win for the poms but it’ll most likely be washed out just like more than half the matches in this world cup

    Ive got no grudge against england, im a brit myself. If england win it, it will be because they deserve it. I am just giving my honest opinion, that i dont see it as a cake walk for england to win it. Aussies, NZ, SA, india, pak and WI are all capable of beating england. Thats 6 teams. And if england make it to the semis, which they probably will, they most likely have to beat 2 of these sides again to win the wc. i dont see them doing that.

    What makes you think WI capable of beating England? Have you not followed general ODI since 2015 WC? Do you know where WI ranks in the ODI? When the last time they beat Eng in England?

    Lets not get blindly hyped up because Gayle is back. Windies are below average ODI side

    For saf to do well there bowler needs to bowl very well specially with the likes of rabada ngidi Imran Tahir. Restricting eng to small total is the only way of winning like aus did in the warm up match. Although it was a warm up but win is a win after all.

    Hosts England take on South Africa in highly-anticipated tournament opener

    Overview:

    England v South Africa

    The Oval, London
    2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, Match 1
    Thursday, 30 May; 10:30am local, 9:30am GMT


    England's batting line-up is laden with superstars, headed by the opening pair of Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow, who boast the highest strike-rates in ODI history, among all openers to have scored more than 1,000 runs. The rest of England's line-up possesses similar strength, Eoin Morgan and Joe Root's presence often relatively overshadowed by the magnificent Jos Buttler, who is arguably the most devastating 360° batsman in the world today.

    While Morgan is all set to return to lead the side after missing the first warm-up matche due to finger injury, newly-qualified fast bowler Jofra Archer will be the man to watch among the bowlers, and could just be what they need to finally lift cricket's most prestigious trophy.

    South Africa, like England, do not possess an esteemed record at the tournament, but their side looks balanced and of high quality.

    Wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock is as capable as anyone of punishing England's opening bowlers, and is a proven match-winner, alongside the experienced duo of Hashim Amla and skipper Faf du Plessis. The bowling unit, despite the absence of Dale Steyn, who has been ruled out of the first game as he continues to recover from shoulder injury, seems formidable, boasting the the ever-energetic Imran Tahir and 24-year-old pacer Kagiso Rabada, who finished as the top-two wicket-takers in the Indian Premier League.

    Key players

    Jofra Archer (England): The batting looks suitably reinforced, so it is important that Archer hits the ground running for England to establish an equally potent bowling unit.

    Imran Tahir (South Africa): Quelling runs and taking key wickets in the middle overs will be vital to prevent an astronomical England total, and Tahir will be the man tasked to do it. His guile and experience could prove crucial against the strong England middle order.

    Conditions:

    It's set to be a cloudy, dry day in London, with injections of sunshine. Whatever the weather, expect England to go full-tilt with the bat from ball one.

    Squads:

    England: Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Tom Curran, Liam Dawson, Liam Plunkett, Adil Rashid, Joe Root, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, James Vince, Chris Woakes, Mark Wood.

    South Africa: Faf du Plessis (c), Aiden Markram, Quinton de Kock (wk), Hashim Amla, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller, Chris Morris, Andile Phehlukwayo, JP Duminy, Dwaine Pretorius, Dale Steyn, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi, Imran Tahir, Tabraiz Shamsi

    Lets not get blindly hyped up because Gayle is back. Windies are below average ODI side
    Actually they do have nail biting series against England recently where they draw odi series 2-2 just 3 month ago if not rain they might have won series 3-2 .Interestingly they batted out england batsmen in 2 games .England is favourite ground for the likes of lewis,gayle and Russell. They have capability to thrash any side in worldcup

    No Dale Steyn is a massive setback for South Africa. He will be replaced by Chris Morris who isn’t really the same caliber as a bowler.

    Another thing is that South Africa have to play Aiden Markram to balance their team in the place of either Van der Dussen or Duminy. If Markram is playing at 3, Faf at 4 and Miller at 5, suddenly the batting lineup starts looking good.

    People are underestimating SA too much here. Even if there is an abondance of very good openers, 50+ averages etc I rate QdK as the best opener in ODI’s. He is one of those rare ones that can take on any kind of bowler.

    Good points. They have to play the top 5 you mentioned. They can't drop duminy since he is the 6th bowling option. So rassie has to make way.

    I dont expect SA batsmen to perform like Pak.
    They'll make use of whatever loose stuff jofra will offer. I think jofra is over rated he hasnt even played odi cricket

    The beauty of the World Cup is that it is a very special event regardless of where it is played. Fond memories of all of them except the one in the Caribbean. I can't watch the first ball since in at work. Just following on CI
