The Proteas have got themselves into a frenzy by losing three games in a row in the World Cup 2019. The qualifications scenario gets that much more tough for them now and they’ve got to win at least five of their remaining six games to qualify for the semi-finals. South Africa will be facing the mighty Windies in their next game.
The team from the Caribbean has been playing excellent cricket in the tournament. They have themselves to blame for the loss against Australia. But, they will be eager to come back strong and get back to the winning ways. Batting hasn’t really fired for South Africa in this tournament and that is one department where amends are required. They will be equally keen to get their first win of the mega-event.
Here we bring you the Dream11 Fantasy team based on the stats of the players
Quinton de Kock and Shai Hope are the two wicket-keepers whom you can select in your eleven. The Windies cricket has been excellent in the last five ODI games where he scored 270 runs at an average of 54. Quinton de Kock missed out in the last two matches but still has got 158 runs in the last five games. Even though he takes up 10 credits, he is a must-have in your team.
With most of the players taking up a lot of credits, picking the right set of batsmen could be tough. Faf du Plessis takes up 10 credits and it is hard to fit him into the eleven. Instead, you can go ahead with Chris Gayle who takes the same number of credits. The left-hander’s statistics have been a lot better in recent times. He should be the captain of your side if you go by the stats. Same with Rassie van der Dussen who could be the vice-captain. The third pick in this category can be David Miller.
The statistics of Jason Holder in the all-rounder’s category have been quite good. He is doing a decent job with the bat as well as the ball. Andre Russell in another pick you can have in your team. If he applies himself well with the bat, he could be absolutely lethal. Whenever he’s been given the ball, he has bowled his heart out and did a fair job. From the South African team, you can pick Andile Phehlukwayo.
Most of the bowlers from both these teams have got a decent record in the last five outings. Oshane Thomas has picked up 14 wickets in the same number of matches and is a no-brainer to be in your team. Imran Tahir and Kagiso Rabada, who have picked up 8 wickets each, can be the other two players in the team.
