The Proteas win the draw first in a shortened ODI; Praetorius in



Weak weather in Manchester forced Proteas and England to play a shortened second ODI at Old Trafford on Friday with 29 outsiders left in the match.

The Proteas have won the toss and will play first.

The game was scheduled to start at 2:00 pm South African time (1:00 pm local time), but it was still raining heavily at that point. The check was held at 3:00 pm local time, once the rain had stopped, and then another hour later (5:00 pm KST), with referees David Millns and Richard Illingworth ruling that the match would start at 5:45 pm KST (4:45 p.m. local time).

The Proteas have made only one change to their roster for this match, with wagon Duane Pretorius replacing Andile Fehlukvayo, who is suffering from a concussion after an on-pitch collision with captain Keshav Maharaj in the first ODI earlier this week.

England have made three substitutions with Phil Salt expected to replace retired all-rounder Ben Stokes and more experienced athletes David Wyllie and Reece Topley to replace Matthew Potts and Brydon Karse.

If the Proteas win against the world champions, it will be an exceptional start to their all-format tour as it will be their first ODI win in England since 1998.
