England will play their first ODI without Ben Stokes on Friday with South Africa leading the series 1-0.

England and South Africa will continue their One Day International series on Friday with South Africa heading into the next match with a one match lead.

Friday’s match will also signal the start of England’s ODI world post Ben Stokes after the 31-year-old Durham all-rounder and 2019 World Cup hero announced his retirement from the one-day game.

Stokes played his last ODI game on Tuesday 19 July after featuring in over 100 ODI matches and achieving a batting average of 39.44.

However, he has now taken the decision to retire from this format in order to focus on his role as Test captain, which will allow him to give 100% in the T20 format as well.

England will now look ahead to Friday to build on the legacy left behind by Stokes and level the series 1-1 after a disappointing 62 run defeat in Durham.

South Africa’s Rassie van der Dussen scored a remarkable 134 off 117 balls to bring his team up to 333. Despite strong efforts from Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and Joe Root, the score proved too tall to chase and England were only able to put on 271 in reply.
