SA vs ZIM Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Diamond Oval, Kimberley, September 30 at 01:30 PM IST
South Africa would be welcoming Zimbabwe for a proposed T20 and ODI series starting from September 30.
Zimbabwe’s tour of South Africa will start with the shortest format of the game, i.e. 3 ODI’s followed by 3 T20I’s starting from October 09. First of the three T20’s will take place at the Diamond Oval Kimberley.
There have been many changes on either side with the most notable one is the inclusion of Dale Steyn in the South African line-up which will boost the already lethal pace attack with the likes of Lungi Ngidi and Kagiso Rabada.
With injuries playing a major role in his exclusion from the side since beating Australia 5-0 at home in October 2016, Dale Steyn is really excited to be back in the mix of things. On his inclusion in the side, he quoted, “It’s so bloody long ago I can’t even remember it.” That’s Dale Steyn talking about the last ODI he played. “What I do remember is that we won five-nil. And it’s a team game. And that’s all that matters,”
Meanwhile, Zimbabwe after being involved in a massive fray with the Zimbabwe Cricket Board have finally come alongside which means players like Craig Ervine, Brendan Taylor, Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza have made themselves available after the pay dispute with the board has been resolved.

- You can choose either of the two keepers, as both Brendan Taylor and Heinrich Klaasen are class players and game changers.
- Among the batsmen, you can go for Faf du Plessis who is always a good prospect in home conditions, Hamilton Masakadza is also a nice option in this category and Aiden Markram who did not had a good show in Sri Lanka is always pipped for some big knocks in the home turf.
- JP Duminy and Solomon Mire are the best choices in this category. JP is an experienced campaigner and has played some vital knocks in the middle order and proved his potential with the ball as well whenever needed. Solomon Mire is a devastating opener and can change the course of the game anytime.
- A lot many eyes would be on Steyn’s return, therefore picking up Dale Steyn in your fantasy eleven along with Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi who are the current spearheads of the bowling attack can help you gain good points.
Our Captain and Vice Captain picks
The players who can help you double your points would be Faf du Plessis, Solomon Mire, JP Duminy, Lungi Ngidi and Brendan Taylor.
