England Probable best batter of the match
Jos Buttler (England)
Jos Buttler is in the form of his life of late. The right-hander has smashed 214 runs from four matches. The average of 214 means that he has got out only once in the tournament thus far. In the previous game against Sri Lanka, Buttler bailed his team out and scored a masterful ton. Moreover, he has scored those runs at an incredible strike rate of 153.95.
Probable best bowler of the match
Anrich Nortje (South Africa)
Anrich Nortje has bowled with a lot of venom in the T20 World Cup. In four matches, the speedster has picked up eight wickets and is also the leading wicket-taker for the Proteas in the mega event. Moreover, the fact that he has bowled at an economic rate of 4.56 shows that batters have found it tough to get him away. The England batters need to play him with caution.
