Wood Can Be Hero In First T20 Clash

Wood Can Be Hero in First T20 Clash


It’s only right that the year 2020 plays host to international cricket’s version of the short game as the T20 World Cup begins in Australia in October. With every competing nation having one eye on that event, all 20 over games beforehand take on some extra significance with teams fine tuning their line-ups in time for the big event. South Africa and England will expect to go far in the tournament and those two sides meet today in a day/night game looking to find their best form ahead of what is set to be a very important year for T20 cricket.

England will enter that tournament as third favourites behind the impressive Indian side and hosts, Australia, but on their day, they’ll believe they’ll have what it takes to add to their status as champions of the world in the 50 over format. England’s performances against South Africa in the one-day series were not overly impressive and Eoin Morgan will demand a major improvement as his team look to close out what has been a largely successful tour.

Mark Wood will be one player that England will be pinning their hopes on and the Durham seamer has enjoyed himself in South Africa with some stunning displays. His T20 career doesn’t have many highlights, but he’ll be desperate to take advantage of this opportunity with the World Cup looming on the horizon. He can be backed to be the game’s leading wicket taker at 4/1 with SportPesa’s special price boost.
