Matthew Potts is replaced by Ollie Robinson in England’s XI for the second test against South Africa

Ollie Robinson has replaced Matthew Potts as England’s wicketkeeper in their playing XI for the second test against South Africa. This is the only change England has made to their team from the first match.

The England cricket team made their selections for the playing eleven for the second match of the three-match Test series against South Africa on Wednesday. The match will take place at Emirates Old Trafford. Ollie Robinson made his way back into the starting eleven, taking the place of Matthew Potts in the lone change made from the first test played at Lord’s. Beginning on August 25 will be the second test that is administered. The ability of England to quickly recover from a loss will be put to the test at Emirates Old Trafford as they seek to even the three-match Test series against South Africa’s Proteas. In the first match of the series, which took place at Lord’s, Ben Stokes’ team was defeated by an innings within three days.

Zak Crawley, Alex Lees, Ollie Pope, Joe Root, Jonny Bairstow, Ben Stokes, Ben Foakes, Stuart Broad, Jack Leach, Ollie Robinson, and James Anderson will make up the England XI for the second test match against South Africa.

Beginning on September 8 is the start date for the third and final test in this series.

Both teams have competed against one another in the high-pressure white-ball part of South Africa’s tour to England, which included three one-day internationals and three Twenty20 internationals.

The Twenty20 International series was won by South Africa, 2-1. When compared to England’s performance, South Africa’s batting was incredibly constant over the entire series. On the other hand, England’s performance was the complete reverse.

Prior to this, the one-day international series between both teams concluded in a tie, 1-1. The last match of the series was called off due to rain, so there was no chance of deciding who would win the series.
