England

England were invited to bat first in the second match of the series against South Africa after Keshav Maharaj won a second successive toss and decided to give his attack first bite of the cherry in damp conditions. Wet weather delayed the toss by nearly three hours and cut the match to 29 overs a side on a grey, murky day in Manchester. Phil Salt has been given an opportunity at No.3 and will feature in his seventh ODI, following Ben Stokes' retirement. Andile Phehlukwayo, who sustained a concussion on Tuesday, has been ruled out of the rubber and replaced by Dwaine Pretorius.
