South Africa vs England Champions trophy Streaming

England are in the rare position where changes aren't required. They have a balanced attack, with Graeme Swann to complement the four quicks, and Paul Collingwood is a more than handy operator. Collingwood's return to form has a huge impact on England's one-day unit, but Strauss could do with better control from Stuart Broad and Luke Wright.

South Africa know their best one-day team and generally stick with it. Herschelle Gibbs has been passed fit for selection and should slot back in alongside Smith. How England combat the 20 overs of spin from Johan Botha and Roelof van der Merwe will be vital, while Dale Steyn will want to lay some early makers for battles ahead.
