IRE vs SA Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Update for 3rd ODI

Harry Tector and Janneman Malan are useful picks for your fantasy teams.


Ireland created history by defeating South Africa for the 1st time in the ODIs. They are just one step away from winning the series. Completely dominating performances both with the bat and ball gave them a 43-run victory in the 2nd ODI. Veteran batter William Porterfield missed the 2nd ODI due a fractured finger, but he is likely to play in the 3rd ODI.

South African bowlers leaked many runs in the death overs and an inexperienced middle-order made them lose the 2nd ODI. They now find themselves under all sorts of pressure to win the 3rd ODI, so as to level the series 1-1. Quinton de Kock, who was rested for the first 2 ODIs, is expected to play in this match.

IRE vs SA Risky Captaincy Choices:

Harry Tector played exceptionally well in both matches. He took a world-class bowling attack to the cleaners in the last game and scored vital runs for his side. It’s worth a risk to pick him as your fantasy team skipper.

Aiden Markram is a stylish batter, but has not been able to play to his fullest potential in this series. You can take a risk and pick him as your fantasy team skipper.

Player you should avoid:

Considering there are too many options in the bowlers’ slot, it’s quite difficult to find a place for Craig Young in the final eleven.
