West Indies vs South Africa Dream11: West Indies and South Africa will be locking horns for the fourth and penultimate T20I later tonight, and we can expect the game to be nothing short of an exciting affair. The previous T20I turned into a nerve wracking one with the hosts South Africa winning by just one run as they defended a target of 168. West Indies will feel hard done by, but will take plenty of heart for the fourth game as they look to stay alive in the series. Here are some star players who could make a serious impact from both camps.
South Africa’s specialist wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock has been one of the most impressive players in recent times. Quinton de Kock has scored 37, 24 and 72 the three T20Is against West Indies, and will be keen on carrying his good form later tonight. Quinton de Kock has a strike rate of 137, along with seven fifties from the 50 appearances for South Africa in T20 cricket.

Obed McCoy was the standout performer for West Indies in the 3rd T20I. The left arm fast bowled bagged four wickets for just 22 runs in his four over spell. Even in the match before that, McCoy managed to scalp three wickets, which takes his tally to seven wickets from the three games in the ongoing series. With 12 wickets from eight T20Is in general, it would be advisable to have Obed McCoy in the Fantasy Team.

The left arm wrist spinner has been one of the major challenges for the West Indies batsman in the ongoing series. Tabraiz Shamsi has conceded just 27, 16 and 13 runs respectively from the 12 overs across the three T20Is. He has also managed to pick four wickets in the process, with his best performance coming in the third game as he bowled a spell of 2/13. Shamsi was awarded the ‘Player of the Match’ and will look to cause further problems for the West Indies later tonight.

The specialist T20 batsman, Evin Lewis will be the usual threat for the South African bowlers. Lewis has scored 119 runs from the three T20Is so far, which also includes a quick fire knock of 71 from 35 deliveries in the first game. The opening batsman maintains a staggering strike rate of 156.7, while, averaging 31.6. Lewis also has two hundreds in the shortest format, both of which came against India.
Leader of the bowling unit, Kagiso Rabda for South Africa continues to be one of the more reliable players in his camp. Rabada displayed his brilliance in the 2nd T20I by bagging three wickets for 37 runs in four overs. Although, in the 3rd T20I Rabada wasn’t able to impose much authority, but he did manage to get the big wicket of Keiron Pollard through a quick yorker that got through his defence and dismantled the stumps. The 26-year-old has been a real asset for South Africa cricket ever since his debut in 2014.
