SA vs ENG Dream11 Team Predictions: Ideal XI Suggestion
After analyzing the performance of each players from both the team, the ideal Dream11 team for this match should have 2WKs, 4 Batsman, 2 All Rounders and 3 Bowlers.
SA vs ENG Dream11 Team Predictions : Wicket-keeper
Quinton de Kock will be leading from the front and is the preferred keeper in the eleven. He has scored 5135 runs along with 15 centuries for the side. He has affected 173 dismissals with the gloves.
Heinrich Klaasen was one of the top scorers versus Australia and is someone who can play responsible innings coming in the middle order. He strikes at 94.81 and has 493 runs at an average of 41.08.
The inclusion of Kyle Verreynne did pay dividends for the side as he played well against Australia and a potential inclusion in the days to come.
Jos Buttler has been off color in the color jersey for the national side but found the meat of the bat in the 3rd T20. He has been an asset to the side with the bat and the gloves with 3855 runs and 209 dismissals respectively.
Jonny Bairstow is someone who can be used to attack the new ball to get the team to a flyer. He has scored more than 3000 runs for the team and averages 47.16 in 83 appearances.
Sam Billings is a future prospect in the limited overs with the gloves. He has averaged 36.63 and has 4 fifties in 21 matches for the side. He can be tried purely as a middle order batsman bringing quality into the table.
SA vs ENG Dream11 Team Predictions : Batsmen
Faf Du Plesis’ experience counts the most here with the former skipper gluing the middle order together. Having scored more than 5500 runs in 143 outings, he has a lot riding on his shoulders.
Rassie van Der Dussen is an important candidate for the side in the future as he is expected to be the next sensation in the middle over having averaged more than 70 in 21 games after making 707 runs in 21 games.
David Miller might be tried as the finisher in this side but has lately been highly inconsistent. Reeza Hendricks’ is currently under a lot of threat with the talented player not playing up to his potential across formats. He has managed 507 runs in 21 outings at an average of 26.68.
Temba Bavuma is a gun fielder but is unable to produce the same quality from his willow. He has a better record in ODI where he has averaged 55.83 with a ton and a fifty in 6 innings.
Jason Roy is looking out of sorts without a big score under the belt. He has been getting out to bad balls but has still averaged just above 40 and most importantly has a superior strike rate of 106.8.
Joe Root is looking to get back to the top of his game after a string of poor performances for him in the recent past. Despite everything, he has averaged 50.10 and is just 38 runs shy of 149 innings.
There is little doubt about skipper Eoin Morgan’s capability in the middle order for England. He has the right technique and shoulders the innings pretty well.
Liam Livingstone is looking to make his ODI debut but still looks a little far fetched with a settled side in place.
SA vs ENG Dream11 Team Predictions : All-rounders
George Linde might get his call up for the ODIs owing to his recent form in the T20s where he did a wonderful job with the ball as well as with the bat.
Dwaine Pretorius might be the solution for the middle order woes of South Africa as someone who can play the anchor role and consistently provides you with wickets. He has a strike rate of 93.10 with the willow and has taken 29 wickets at 4.77 runs per over. JJ Smuts looks like an established player in the 50-over format after averaging more than 50 with the bat along with contributions coming with the ball.
Moeen Ali was rested for all the 3 T20s but is someone to go for in ODIs with statistics favoring him. He has taken 85 wickets with his off spin and has scored 1790 runs with the willow so far.
Chris Woakes is the ideal all-rounder who has given plenty of match winning performances for the side. He is someone who can bowl at all stages and can be handy with the bat down the order. With 149 wickets and over 1300 runs in the ODIs, he is a regular in the eleven.
Lewis Gregory would be looking to turn around his career after failing to make a mark in the T20s early in the year.
SA vs ENG Dream11 Team Predictions : Bowlers
Lungi Ngidi is considered to be the strike bowler in ODIs having taken 53 wickets in half the number of games at a decent economy of 5.56 in 26 ODIs.
Anrich Nortje rattles the batsman with his extra pace and bounce he generates. In a short career of 7 games, he has bagged 14 wickets at 5.08 economy.
Beuran Hendricks hasn’t had a long career in ODIs having played just 7 games where he has bagged 5 scalps. Tabraiz Shamsi is looking to replicate his form in the ODIs after an excellent T20 series where the English didn’t have answers for him. He has 26 wickets in 22 outings and will be the lead spinner.
Andile Phehlukwayo is the experienced of the lot with the pacer amounting to 69 wickets in 58 games and is looking to stage a comeback into the side. Keshav Maharaj is a quality Test bowler but needs to prove himself in the 50-over format to cement his spot.
Mark Wood is a top-notch performer with the new ball as he takes some important wickets upfront. He has 64 wickets in 53 appearances and has contributed two 4-wicket hauls up until now.
Adil Rashid is a match winning candidate spinning the web around the batsmen consistently in the limited overs. He has captured 155 wickets in 106 games including nine 4-wicket hauls and 2 fifers.
Reece Topley has made the most of the opportunities with 17 dismissals in 11 ODIs and is looking to establish himself in the eleven. Tom Curran has proven himself in T20Is but needs to do a better job when he bowls 10 overs. He is also handy with the bat down the order and has bagged 28 wickets. Olly Stone looks to make the most of this opportunity with his first stint not going as expected.
