SA vs WI Dream11 Team Prediction | Playing 11 | T20 World Cup 2021

South Africa and West Indies will play in the 18th match of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Dubai. We will cover SA vs WI Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.

South Africa:

South Africa had to face disappointment in the tournament’s first match as they lost to Australia by five wickets. They are currently at the fourth position on Group 1’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup points table.

Skipper Bavuma and de Kock got out early in the innings, and at No.3, van der Dussen returned to the pavilion without many runs. But Aiden Markram batted well in the middle-order, scoring 40 runs and helping the team to get past 100 runs. Klassen and Miller scored some runs but played more balls.

The bowlers did a great job trying to defend such a low total. Anrich Nortje picked up two wickets in his four overs. Rabada, Maharaj, and Shamsi got one wicket each. South Africa has the potential to play better and needs to improve its batting performance.

West Indies:

The defending champions, West Indies, lost their first match to England by six wickets. They are currently at the bottom of Group 1’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup points table.

Lendl Simmons and Evin Lewis scored only single-digit scores and got out within the first three overs. Even Chris Gayle and Hetmyer returned to the pavilion in the powerplay. Except for Gayle, no other batter could cross ten runs and get all-out to a low score of 55 runs.

The bowlers performed a bit better than the batsmen. Akeal Hosein and Ravi Rampaul picked up two and one wickets, respectively. Obed McCoy bowled tight line and lengths but couldn’t pick up a wicket.

West Indies needs to forget this performance and try to perform better in the upcoming matches.
