SA vs AUS Fantasy Tips

  • Reeza Hendricks has struggled against Australia in this format having scored just 100 runs in 5 matches at an average of 20. But the opener will fancy himself to do well against this inexperienced bowling attack.
  • Spencer Johnson is expected to make his debut and he did very well in the recent Hundred competition and also for Brisbane Heat in BBL.
  • Adam Zampa has picked up atleast 1 wicket in the previous 4 matches against South Africa. The leg spinner will be a key pick for this match.
  • Tristan Stubbs is expected to bat lower down the order and might not face much balls to make an impact. Hence avoid him for this match.
