Captain and vice-captain:
D Malan is arguably the most consistent T20 batter in the world. He has scored 1 hundred and 8 fifties in just 18 T20I innings and has scored 756 runs at an average of 47.25 and has an impressive strike-rate of 144.0. He scored a well composed fifty in the last game as he made 55 runs from 40 balls.
Q de Kock has got starts in both the games so far. He made 30 runs from 23 balls in the first game and then scored another 30 runs from 18 balls in the second game. So expect him to add to his runs tally in this game.
J Buttler has scored just 29 runs in 2 games in this tournament so far but considering his overall T20 stats, a big innings is just round the corner. He has made 6260 runs in 269 T20 games and averages 30.83. He has an in impressive strike-rate of 144.70.
A Rashid is the X factor in this game as the pitch will assist spin bowling and Rashid is always bowling aggressively looking for wickets. He picked 2 wickets in the 2nd T20I and gave just 23 runs in 4 overs.
England’s white-ball strength is so terrific that they start any game as the favorites. So in the SA vs ENG Dream11 today match prediction, expect England to win the game.
