Mumbai, March 17: Bruised and battered by the Chris Gayle mauling, England are faced with a must-win situation as they look ways to contain South Africa in their ICC World Twenty20 match, here tomorrow.
Shell-shocked by Gayle�s record 47-ball century, England are required to win against the Proteas, to whom they lost 0-2 in the tune-up to the tournament, if they are to progress to the semi finals from Group 1.
The 2010 champions� under-fire bowlers and fielders will be up against a strong rival batting line-up comprising the innovative AB de Villiers � holder of the world�s fastest 50, 100 and 150 in ODIs, big-hitting David Miller and the solidity of captain Faf du Plessis, Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock and JP Duminy.
The key, perhaps, would be how effectively England�s spinners � Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali � can perform after being sent to the cleaners by the big-swinging bat of Gayle who struck successive sixes into the top tiers of the Wankhede Stadium off both these slow bowlers.
They were tilted over for 171 as recently as February 21 at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg by the Dale Steyn-less Proteas� bowling attack comprising young tearaway Kagiso Rabada, Kyle Abbott, Chris Morris and Imran Tahir.
South Africa chased the target for the loss of just one wicket with openers de Villiers and Hashim Amla smashing half centuries to help the side complete a 2-0 win.
In the opening game of that series at Cape Town, Tahir bamboozled the England batsmen with a four-wicket haul before South Africa chased down the small total of 134 for the loss of seven wickets.
With Steyn back into the squad after his injury woes, South Africa�s bowling attack looks truly formidable, though the track at the Wankhede is a bit different from those back home.
