After being handed a comprehensive defeat by the hosts India, South Africa Legends bounced back in style by securing a thumping win over the New Zealand legends in their second game. Off-spinners Johan Botha and Thandi Tshabalal were instrumental with ball for the Proteas, sharing seven wickets between themselves.
On the other hand, Sanath Jayasuriya's sensational four-fer led to England's debacle in their first game against a rampant Sri Lankan outfit. Captained by Ian Bell, the Englishmen would play for their resurgence in the multinational affair.

Pitch Report: The surface at the iconic Green Park has seen two high-scoring matches in the tournament so far. The track has an even bounce and assisted spinners to some extent. So, we expect a flat batting track with a slight grip for the tweakers in it.
Johan Botha has scalped four wickets at a surreal economy of 6.25 in the tournament.
Stephen Parry, England's left-arm off-spinner bowled an impactful spell against Sri Lanka, picking one wicket for just nine runs in his four overs.
Andrew Puttick, the Proteas' opener, slammed a gorgeous 36-ball 51* in the last game against New Zealand legends.
