SA vs ZIM Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match

Boland Park, Paarl, October 06 at 04:30 PM IST

A man of the match performance from Dale Steyn helped the Proteas sneak through a win in the second ODI at the Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein by 120 runs. After winning the toss on a bright sunny day, JP Duminy the Proteas skipper chose to bat first on a pitch full of cracks. The Zimbabwean bowlers went berserk right from the word go as they skittled through the Proteas batting line-up and reduced them to 101 for the loss of 7 crucial wickets at the end of 25 overs.

Then came Dale Steyn and surprisingly played a much-needed hand with the bat rather than the ball and stitched a crucial 75 runs stand with Andile Phehlukwayo. In the process, he also reached his maiden half-century and hung on with the last man out Lungi Ngidi for a 21 runs stand to take South Africa’s score close to 200.

South Africa ended up on 198 with Tendai Chatara doing the most of the damage with 3 wickets to his name. In reply, Zimbabwe were reduced to 43-4 in 14.1 overs and were looking off sorts for the chase. The early damages were done by Dale Steyn and Lungi Ngidi but Imran Tahir was the one who injected severe pain to the Zimbabwean batting line-up.

Tahir scalped 6 giving away 24 runs in just 6 overs which included a hat-trick did play an important role in South Africa’s win, Dale Steyn bagged two wickets while Lungi Ngidi and Andile Phehlukwayo grabbed 1 each which helped the home side stop the neighbours for a paltry score of 78 runs.

  • South Africa might rest Lungi Ngidi and bring in Kagiso Rabada or try another spinner Tabraiz Shamsi in their eleven after a heroic spell from Imran Tahir in the previous game.
  • South Africa’s skipper Faf du Plessis has recovered from his shoulder injury and will feature in the squad for South Africa.

Fantasy Picks


  • Zimbabwe’s batting has been a flop show so far, therefore we would suggest you to pick Heinrich Klaasen in your fantasy eleven.


  • Among the batsmen, you can go for Aiden Markram, Hamilton Masakadza and you can also go with the returning skipper Faf du Plessis who has a lot to offer. These are the players who look stable in their respective teams and have done well in the last two matches with the bat.


  • JP Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo who played a crucial hand with Dale Steyn down the order will be crucial here. JP although has not bowled much in this series but his all-round skills are always praiseworthy.


  • Among the bowlers, you can bet on Kyle Jarvis, Dale Steyn and Imran Tahir. All these bowlers are capable of turning the tables, there is no surety that who among Kagiso and Lungi will play in this game so if you select one of them, choose on your own risk.

Our Captain and Vice Captain picks

The players who can help you gain some extra bits Hamilton Masakadza, Imran Tahir, JP Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo etc.
