Whereas, in the first video released by the channel, they mocked the Pakistani cricket team for not being able to defeat India at the World Cup.
However, the two teams look good for the challenge. England has been recently in good shape, defeating the opponents displaying their strength. And. as for South Africa, they look strong as ever with Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock in their squad.
