CAPE TOWN - Proteas all-rounder Faf du Plessis on Monday said there is great energy in the ODI squad after the team's big Test series win over England last week.

South Africa will face England in the second ODI on Tuesday, after the first game was rained out in Cardiff.

The newly crowned number one Test squad will be looking to topple England off top of the ODI rankings table too.

Du Plessis said there is a great vibe in the team.

"The new guys are fresh - they haven't been in England for the last three weeks. They are bringing in that energy to the team. There's a positive buzz."

Du Plessis said England is not number one for nothing.

"We've got to be prepared and play well."
