NAM vs SA-E Risky Captaincy Choices:

Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton performed well with both bat and ball in the 1st T20, but he didn’t perform up to his standards in the 2nd T20I. He can be a risky captaincy pick.

Jason Smith generally bats in the middle order and the chances of scoring big runs are not huge, but he got a chance in the first game and showed his calibre by scoring 48 runs from 26 deliveries.

Player you should avoid:

Bernard Scholtz hasn’t done anything great in the last couple of matches with the ball. He was economical in the 1st T20 but didn’t pick any wickets. For his 9 Cr, he is not worthy to be included in your Dream11 fantasy teams.
