Top picks for SA vs ENG Dream11 Prediction
Quinton De Kock:
Newly elected skipper Quinton De Kock will lead the team from the front and is a brilliant batsman. He scored 107, 11, and 69 runs in the ODI series and will be a must pick in SA vs ENG Dream11 team.
Rassie Van Der Dussen:
He has performed consistently for Proteas and can play as per the situation of the match. Dussen scored 38* runs in the first ODI and can be a great choice of captaincy in grand leagues.
Reeza is a talented performer and will open the innings. His recent form in international cricket is below par and will be eager to put a good show in the T20I’s.
Andile is a good all-rounder and can be handy in both the departments. He failed miserably in the ODI matches.
Pacer Ngidi is a wicket-taking pacer but has recently recovered from injury and was not at his best in the first ODI but struck twice in the third ODI and can be tried in your fantasy teams.
Left-arm fast-medium bowler took 18 wickets in 11 T20Is. In the recent ODI series, B Hendricks performs very well and took 4 wickets in 2 completed games.
He has been one of the world’s most fearsome pacers at his time and still has the potential to perform well for South Africa cricket. His form in MSL and BBL was good and can be a match-winner tomorrow.
Spinner Shamsi is a wicket-taking but inconsistent bowler. However, He took three wicket-haul in the first ODI.
Bavuma is a technically strong batsman and missed his well-deserved century in the first ODI getting out on 98 runs and will be the key in the middle order. His heroics are not well-known in the T20I format and can be missed for other star players.
All-rounder Stokes can be the difference between both sides and is in his best form from the past one year. He will be the best choice of captaincy considering his all-round skills.
Flamboyant Opener Roy is in his best form currently and can lay havoc single-handedly. He got a good start in both the ODI’s and can be tried as captain in mini grand leagues.
He is an attacking finisher and can play match-winning knocks for the team. His recent form is not very good and can be avoided in the small league team.
He is an attacking opening batsman but is struggling with his form from the last few months. He scored attacking knock of 43 runs from 23 balls in the third ODI and is likely to play at one down tomorrow.
He can open tomorrow and be in brilliant form during the last T20I series against Kiwis.
He is a wicket-taking pace bowler and handy lower-order batsmen. His recent form is exceedingly well and will be a must-pick in ENG vs SA Dream11 team.
Right-arm fast-medium bowler took 54 wickets in 43 T20I matches. Chris Jordan is an excellent T20 bowler.
He is a better player of spin as compared to pace bowling and can fetch you good points if top order collapses. However, He failed in the ODI series.
He took 39 wickets in 40 T20I matches. In the recent ODI series, he performs very well.
