England batsman Jonathan Trott jumps to take a catch during his side's preparations for their crucial Cricket World Cup Group B match against South Africa in Chennai.

England have been criticised for their fielding displays in the tournament so far, coach Andy Flower describing them as 'ordinary' and captain Andrew Strauss was equally honest following a three-wicket defeat to Ireland, saying that his team can't expect to win if they drop four chances in a game.

Despite missing chances in the field, England managed to beat the Netherlands by six wickets and tie with India so they take three points into the match against the Proteas, who have four points following convincing wins against the West Indies and the Netherlands.
