Today’s SA vs WI Dream11 Match Top Picks
Top Wicketkeeper Pick
Quinton de Kock
Quinton de Kock was out for a first-ball duck in the last game but he is a game-changer at the top of the order for South Africa. He smacked 48 off 26 balls in the only ODI he played. His career T20I strike rate reads 135.34 and he averages 31.70 (2156 runs).
Top Batter Pick
Brandon King looked in full flow in the first T20I. He smacked 23 off eight balls, including two fours and as many sixes. He was in top form in the ODIs as well, where he scored 102 runs in two innings while striking at 100.99.
Top All-rounder Pick
Kyle Mayers could be the difference maker for the West Indies. He smashed one six in the first T20I before getting out. He scored 50 runs in two games in the ODI series. He can make useful contributions at a significant strike rate and his medium pace can be very useful as well.
Top Bowler Pick
Akeal Hosein has been a consistent performer for West Indies in white-ball cricket. The left-arm spinner picked up one wicket in the first T20I. In the two ODIs he played prior to this series, he returned with five scalps. Last year, he picked up 18 wickets at an economy of 7.04 in T20Is.
