Captain CookThe third of the five match one day International series between England and South Africa takes place on Friday with the Proteas taking a 1-0 lead to the Oval after success last time out.

Of course there has been plenty of news coming out of English cricket recently with Andrew Strauss stepping down as the Test captain and Alistair Cook being appointed as his replacement. With all of that going on, plus the Kevin Pietersen saga – it may be tough for the England squad to fully focus for the remainder of this series.

 

Captain CookThe third of the five match one day International series between England and South Africa takes place on Friday with the Proteas taking a 1-0 lead to the Oval after success last time out.

Of course there has been plenty of news coming out of English cricket recently with Andrew Strauss stepping down as the Test captain and Alistair Cook being appointed as his replacement. With all of that going on, plus the Kevin Pietersen saga – it may be tough for the England squad to fully focus for the remainder of this series.

With the world number one status going to whoever comes out on top in this series though, the Three Lions do need to focus and dust themselves down from what was a poor performance on Tuesday evening, which saw them go 1-0 down.

It is not time to panic though. Many people forget that Cook had led the side to ten straight victories in the 50 over format of the game so they certainly have the ability to bounce back.

James Tredwell has come into the squad to replace Graeme Swann, who is being rested for the Twenty20 World Cup. Cook himself will need to lead from the front in the remaining matches and hope that the likes of Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott help him get the innings off to a good start.

It is a big test for this England side to show what they are made of. Before the South Africans arrived, everything seemed to be going right and now how will they cope with big pressure on them?

The tourists have had a summer to remember so far and could now leave England as the number one side in both Test and one day cricket – not a bad effort.

AB de Villiers takes charge of the side in this format of the game, which allows Graeme Smith to focus solely on getting the innings off to a flyer, which he is as good as any player in world cricket at doing.

Hashim Amla is the other key man for the Proteas at the top of the order in this series. He scored a fantastic 150 last time out and has shown everyone how to protect your wicket and accumulate runs. Amla is a class act.

A victory here would mean that South Africa could not be beaten in the series and with the way they are playing at the moment - you wouldn't want to bet against them. They will feel as though they have the players, confidence and strength in depth to not only win here, but dominate all forms of the game for the next few years.

It should be a great encounter and a superb battle for the number one spot, so don't miss any of the action.
