South Africa has lost all three matches. If they do not get their winning combination sorted out, they can bid farewell to World Cup 2019. Windies, on the other hand, are in better shape with some fantastic players in their lineup. Here is all you need to read for both the teams before picking your Fantain XI.

Team News:

South Africa

Their performance, or rather the lack of it, has surprised many. While they were never front-runners for the World Cup 2019 trophy, no one would have expected 0 wins from 3 matches. The loss to Bangladesh might have hit them the hardest. They are demoralized with the number of injuries as well. Unless the win the next 6 games straight, which is an impossible ask at this point, South Africa can add 2019 to lost cause.

They might want to add Markham back to the squad hoping for some luck. They have been changing the combination for every match, desperate for a win; but some players like Amla cannot be kept on bench. South Africa has been given enough recovery time to come back in the tournament.

Probable XI: Jean-Paul Duminy, Hashim Amla, David Miller, Imran Tahir, Faf du Plessis (c), Chris Morris, Quinton de Kock (wk), Rassie van der Dussen, Kagiso Rabada, Andile Phehlukwayo, Tabraiz Shamsi.

Windies

Not a popular team by fame, but the Windies have a very strong combination that should make them front-runners for World Cup 2019. They had no trouble beating Pakistan by taking advantage of their tumbling batting order. The pacers have also been both economical and fruitful. Yes, they lost to Australia but not without a fight. One cannot really find fault with their game that day.

West Indies enter this match with majority votes. They might stick to the lineup that won against Pakistan.

Probable XI: Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Andre Russell, Ashley Nurse, Carlos Brathwaite, Jason Holder (c), Sheldon Cottrell, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope (wk), Oshane Thomas

Top Picks

Chris Gayle: Combined with Russell, Gayle is the leading smasher of his team.

Andre Russell: “I am a fast bowler,” thundered West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell Friday, reminding all who are only in awe of his incredible power-hitting. Yes he is the all-rounder that you should have in your Fantain Fantasy App.

Rabada: He led the pace attack of the team and ensured that their NRR during their loss to India was not too low by being consistent and economical.

De Kock: de Kock’s flying catch to get Virat Kohli out proved that he can contribute in more ways than one to take his team to the next stage. He is a big plus to your lineup.

Our recommendation

Batsmen: R Van Dussen, Chris Gayle, Amla

Bowlers: Rabada, Tahir, Thomas
