England are set to take the field in the ODI Cricket for the first time after their emphatic World Cup win last year. Same would be the case for the Proteas albeit they finished their World Cup campaign with entirely contrasting emotions. Prior to that World Cup campaign, England were brilliant and it reflected in their on and off campaign in the marquee event. South Africa, on the other hand, looked pretty flawed and lost matches that they should have won. This home series against England is likely to act as a foundation for their 2023 World Cup preparations and they would not want to leave any stone unturned. The ODI series will be followed by a three-match T20I series played across the cities of South Africa. The two teams are set to lock horns in the first ODI of the series at Cape Town, on 2nd February.
No matter how good or bad the Proteas had played before 2019 World Cup, they were always up there in ICC events. However, their 2019 World Cup campaign was different on all those accounts. They looked underprepared, lacked confidence, and played without a purpose. With a new captain in Quinton de Kock, who himself has been in superb form of late, the Proteas will be looking to turn it around and start building a team that allows them to have a shot at the title in 2023 World Cup.
South Africa still have services of their veteran players in Dale Steyn, Faf Du Plessis, and Chris Morris, the selection of Quinton de Kock as a skipper sends a strong message. The Proteas lacked aggression and killing-instinct in the World Cup and Quinton de Kock has the qualities to provide their team with just what they have been lacking.
Rassie van der Dussen, who looked in incredible touch in the test series after debuting in the same series, is a regular in ODI cricket and has produced some brilliant individual performances. Alongside David Miller, who is yet to justify the talent he posseses, Temba Bavuma will be there to make Proteas' batting lineup. The bowling unit looks good for the Proteas, at least on paper, and playing at home should help them. South Africa would love to have a new beginning after a terrible World Cup campaign and are expected to come out all guns blazing. Beating them is not going to be easy, even for England, the World Champions.

Led by Eoin Morgan, the man many thought should be discarded for England's ODI outfit, England have everything an ODI unit can dream of. They have power-packed opening pair with a solid middle-order, that can finish things when needed, followed by a string of all-rounders who all can hit the ball a long way. The presence of all-rounders adds to their balance in the bowling department as well.
Now that England have the title to their name, they have a roadmap to chalk out. The 2023 plan as they call it. There are plenty of things to ponder upon with the leadership being the first and foremost. By 2023, Eoin Morgan will be 36 and a few other members of his World Cup winning team will be well over 30 as well. The management has already shown the intent of trying out some young guns in the series. Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes have both been rested from the upcoming series. Alongside him, England are likely to miss Liam Plunkett or someone of his calibre, considering the role he played in England's World Cup win.
The most notable name in England's young guns is that of Tom Banton, who impressed one and all with his dominance and agression in the shortest version of the game. Besides him, we have Saqib Mahmood and Matt Parkinson, who both had a terrific domestic season. Even though all three of those have terrific talent, it is unlikely that we'll see them play in the first match, not all of them, at least. England are the top-side in the limited overs cricket at the moment and they'd like to stay one and prove that their World Cup win was not a fluke. With most of the members from that team still playing, beating England would be very difficult for a deflated South African side.

Despite resting Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler, English batting unit doesn't look bad at all. They have Moeen Ali back amongst the contention and his off-spin could be a handful against the Proteas, who do not have a good history against spin-bowling. South Africa, on the other hand, are looking a bit top-heavy with most players not having experience of playing cricket at international level. Considering how the two teams are stacked on paper and their recent performances respectively, betting on an England's win would be the way to go.
