South Africa – Fantasy Notes

  • David Miller is in unstoppable form since the last year, and oppositions have found it tough to get him out. If South Africa bats first, he can be an excellent differential choice for captaincy or vice captaincy.
  • If South Africa bowls first – load up most of their bowling options. The three pacers – Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi are almost default choices.
  • We suggest you to pick Keshav Maharaj as well, as he often goes undernoticed but can pick a couple of wickets as well.

Zimbabwe – Fantasy Notes

  • It is not even up to discussion on who your fantasy captain should be. Sikandar Raza is in the form of his life, winning man of the match award in both the Zimbabwe’s wins in this WC so far. The one match they lost, he took 3/19. Fantasy captain – Sikandar Raza!
  • Blessing Muzarabani has returned well from his injury, and looks in good flow. Back him to take a couple of wickets as Quinton de Kock and Temba Bavuma both are going through somewhat a lean patch.
  • Wesley Madhevere can be an interesting pick for this game as he might come and bowl a couple overs along with Sikandar Raza as there are plenty of left handers in South Africa’s batting lineup. Even without that, he bats at No.3 and has enough potential to provide decent amount of fantasy points.
