The captaincy of South Africa is now in the hands of Keshav Maharaj. He has a calm nature and has the experience to understand and play the game. However, South Africa’s record in England is not special and this thing will definitely bother the new captain. The three-match ODI series is scheduled to begin on July 19.

South Africa have faced England in 26 ODIs and won only eight of them, lost 16 matches and had two matches abandoned. In the past decade, South Africa have won just three of the last 10 matches against the defending world champions.

“I have personally played only two ODIs in England, so it is difficult for me to give a deep insight, but maybe we have been a little slow to adapt,” Maharaj said on Thursday, the eve of his departure.

He said, ‘In the series I played, we lost 2-1 and we found our momentum only in the last game. England have done really well lately with their new philosophy of new coaches.

“But it is important for us to play according to our game-plan, focus on what we want to do and do the basics well. It will be a good test and we always want to try to beat the best. Huh.

“I can’t really isolate the aspects of our game that haven’t worked, we just need to trust our process and execute better. I’m sure the hard work we put in will pay off.” ”

With the next 50-over World Cup now just 15 months away, Maharaj is hoping that Jos Buttler’s willingness to be in the squad for that showpiece tournament in India will propel his team to make Jos Buttler’s first series in charge of England. will ignite.

“Obviously in the last year or two we haven’t shown the performance we wanted in our ODI performances,” said Keshav Maharaj, replacing injured captain Temba Bavuma.

“But we have picked a team to suit different needs and combinations. I am sure the game-plan will be realized now with the various combinations we have tried,” he said.
