England will look to take a big step towards the World T20 semi-finals, when they face South Africa at the Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium on Friday.

An impressive eight-wicket win over co-hosts West Indies last time out has put Jos Buttler’s men in a strong position, having just squeezed through to the group stage.

South Africa have also got a Super 8s win under their belt, but they were made to work hard for an 18-run success over the USA.
