England wins the toss, elect to bat first

England skipper Paul Collingwood has won the toss and decided to bat against South Africa with both teams looking to claim a vital Super Eight victory.

With commanding victories in their first Super Eight group games both teams have named unchanged line ups meaning James Anderson is forced to miss out again for England.

A victory for South Africa will seal them a place in the Twenty20 World Cup semi finals and in turn knock out the defending Champions Pakistan who lost this afternoon against New Zealand.

An England victory will see them all but qualifying for the semis as long as they don’t suffer a heavy defeat against the Kiwis Monday in St Lucia.

England team - MJ Lumb, C Kieswetter†, KP Pietersen, PD Collingwood*, EJG Morgan, LJ Wright, SCJ Broad, TT Bresnan, GP Swann, MH Yardy, RJ Sidebottom

South Africa team - GC Smith*, HH Gibbs, JH Kallis, AB de Villiers, JP Duminy, MV Boucher†, JA Morkel, DW Steyn, J Botha, M Morkel, CK Langeveldt.
