Proteas skipper Dane van Niekerk says that her side must not lose any focus, as the Women's World Cup starts to reach the business end.
"We'd like to get some middle-order practice especially against a team like the hosts, England. We know how good they are bowling and batting wise," Van Niekerk told reporters at Grace Road in Leicester on Sunday.
"It's just about applying yourself in the middle and we know we're going to face some tough bowling.
"We know it's going to be a tough tournament, we don't want to be complacent. The important thing is to stay on top of your game," said the Proteas skipper.
"We know it's not going to be like this every game and we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves. We still have a tough competition and we don't want to underestimate anyone.
"The last thing we want to do is to sit in the change room have a drink and put our feet up. It's still a very long tournament.
"We came here to win a World Cup and that is our goal."
Proteas strike bowler, Marizanne Kapp, who took a career-best figures of 4/14 against the West Indies, told reporters that the key to defeating the three-time Women's World Cup winners will be to focus more on themselves than their opposition.
"We're not going to focus too much on England," Kapp told reporters on Sunday.
"I think that's what we've done really well over the past two games. We're just going to try and focus on what we do well."
The Proteas currently sit third on the standings after playing three games (two wins and a no result).
Play is set to get underway in Bristol on Wednesday at 11:30 SA time.
