SA vs ENG | 1st ODI

SA vs ENG Dream11 Match Prediction: After a demeaning show in the Test series, Proteas will look to surge themselves when they take on England in the ODI series which commences from Tuesday at the New Lands in Capetown.

This would be their first ODI assignment in the new year and under a new captain in the wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock. A lot has changed for them ever since Faf du Plessis’s batting under captaincy came under scrutiny which forced the board to try something new. It would be interesting to see how this move will fare for the Proteas in this series.

As far as England are concerned, the World Champions will be playing their first ODI since their emphatic World Cup triumph over New Zealand in July 2019. Stakes would be at imperial heights and they would love to start their New Year in ODI cricket on a winning note.

The clash will take place at the Newlands, Capetown at 04:30 PM IST.

Here is the Dream11 prediction for SA vs ENG.
