Toss: England chose to bowl vs South Africa

A week after being named in the Commonwealth Games squad, 17-year-old Alice Capsey has been handed her first international cap as England look to close out the T20I series against South Africa. They’ll have to do so without captain Heather Knight, who sustained a hip injury in the last match and has decided to sit out this game.
The seriousness of the niggle is not yet known with word from the England camp that Knight is being “assessed and treated.” Nat Sciver was named captain in Knight’s absence.
England made one other change to their XI, leaving out Issy Wong for Freya Davies, who Sciver hoped would be able to make an impact early on. She chose to bowl first so her attack could get best use of the conditions.
South Africa’s Sune Luus would also have wanted to chase but will have to hope her batters can put on a better showing than they did on Thursday. South Africa were kept to 111 for 9 in their 20 overs, and only two batters got into double figures.
They’ve named an unchanged team with no update on whether Marizanne Kapp will return for the Commonwealth Games after she returned home to be with her family after her brother-in-law was involved in an accident. A squad update is expected through South Africa’s Olympic Committee early next week.

England: 1 Sophia Dunkley, 2 Danni Wyatt, 3 Nat Sciver (capt), 4 Amy Jones (wk), 5 Maia Bouchier, 6 Alice Capsey, 7 Bryony Smith, 8 Sophie Ecclestone, 9 Katherine Brunt, 10 Freya Davies, 11 Sarah Glenn

South Africa: 1 Anneke Bosch, 2 Lara Goodall, 3 Sune Luus (capt), 4 Laura Wolvaardt, 5 Mignon du Preez, 6 Chloe Tryon, 7 Delmi Tucker, 8 Sinalo Jafta (wk), 9 Shabnim Ismail, 10 Masabata Klaas, 11 Ayabonga Khaka
