ICC Champions Trophy - England V South Africa

Will the match be affected by rain? Check the weather forecast.

After finishing top of Group A in the first stages of the ICC Champions Trophy, England will now face South Africa in the first of the semi-finals on 19 June.

England finished top of their group thanks to their higher run-rate than Sri Lanka, even though the two sides were equal on 4 points each. At Edgbaston, England beat Australia by 48 runs and at Cardiff, they beat the New Zealand side by just 10 runs. Although they couldn't secure a win against Sri Lanka, the England side had done enough to put them through to the semi-finals of the Champions Trophy.

England's semi-final match against South Africa will take place at the home of Surrey County Cricket. Last time the side played here was in the group stages of the Champions trophy, when they suffered a defeat of 7 wickets at the hands of the Sri Lankan cricket side. England will be hoping to give a better performance to lead them through to the finals. If England make it to the final, they will face the winners of the match between India and Sri Lanka on 20 June.
