As South Africa and England are all set to lock horns in the second test at Cape Town, the tourists have plenty
of issues in their camp.
Already England are 1-0 in the series after their loss in Centurion. Moreover, their players were down with some
food poisoning after they touched down the South Afrian shores.
Now, injuries to their several top players is only making matters worse for the visitors.
Anderson & Broad- Given the wicket at Cape Town is conducive for spin, the hosts might have to take a tough
call in dropping one of their veteran seamers. Also S Curran is high on confidence and that will only make
matters more tough for the side.
Archer- The speedster is injured and there is no clarity on whether he would make the 11 or not. Remember, he was
the best seamer on show for England in the second inns at Centurion.
Bairstow- He has been consistently failing in the longer form of the game with the bat. O Pope who sat down in the
last game could make the 11 and Butler could be asked to keep wickets.
