England's Ailing Leach Heading Home from South Africa

The Proteas Test squad will be unchanged ahead of the remaining two of the four-match series against England No changes to Proteas team despite defeat
Noah Ferguson | 14 January, 2020, 16:25

South Africa have retained the same squad that lost by 189 runs to England in Cape Town for the remainder of the four-match series.

His place as captain and batsman is under no serious threat but his recent performances have been compared to those of Temba Bavuma, who was dropped after averaging below 20 in 2019? even though Du Plessis was the country's second-highest run-scorer behind Quinton de Kock a year ago.

It ended up being a blow for England whenever Rory Burns, which made 84 into the second innings of this first Test, ended up being injured prior to the 2nd match but Dom Sibley stepped up with an essential century whilst Joe Denly was solid at number 3 without taking place to a huge rating.

No more assuring, if you are Proteas-inclined, is that the national team have not won any of the three tussles in post-isolation times, with two draws on record (December 1995 and December 1999) and Michael Vaughan's English side winning the last meeting in 2004/05 by a comfortable margin of seven wickets.

- St George's Park is certainly considered to be having among the slowest, cheapest pitches among South Africa's Test venues.

What is the expected weather for South Africa vs England? .

Influenza affected the visitors heavily since they landed in South Africa on December 14 with several players and staff falling ill.

It was revealed that Leach, 27, who will leave the tour Thursday, suffered from Sepsis during the previous series in New Zealand when he had to be hospitalised.

England have to choose between the reliability of Chris Woakes and the pace of Jofra Archer or Mark Wood, who have both recovered from injury.

South Africa Test Squad: Faf du Plessis (captain), Temba Bavuma, Quinton de Kock, Dean Elgar, Beuran Hendricks, Keshav Maharaj, Pieter Malan, Aiden Markram, Zubayr Hamza, Anrich Nortje, Dane Paterson, Andile Phehlukwayo, Vernon Philander, Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Rudi Second, Rassie van der Dussen.
