SA vs AUS Dream11 Match Prediction

SA vs AUS Dream11 Match Preview: The Proteas went down against the mighty Aussies in the T20I series by 1-2. It is now time for a change in format and the Proteas would wish to change their fortunes as well when the two sides collide in the first of the three ODIs which is all set to be played at the Boland Park in Paarl.

The focus for the Proteas would be on their young guns especially in the absence of seasoned campaigners like Faf du Plessis and Rassie van der Dussen. As far as the visitors are concerned, they have all their boxes ticked and would be looking to take that all-important early lead in the three-match series.

The clash will take place at Boland Park, Paarl, at 04:30 PM IST on 29th February.

Here is the Dream11 prediction and for SA vs AUS.
