SA vs ZIM Dream11 Match Prediction | Who Will Win Today match
Benoni, October 14 at 06:00 PM IST
Zimbabwe would come out to salvage pride in the final game of their South Africa tour at Willowmoore Park in Benoni on Sunday. Nothing has gone their way on the tour; after a 3-0 whitewash in the 50-over format, Zimbabwe are staring at 3-0 clean sweep in the 20-over format as well.
South Africa have not let Zimbabwe off the hook since the start of their tour, with the scoreline reading 5-0. They would be looking to add another win to gain momentum for tour Down Under.
In the last meeting between the two sides, Zimbabwe were restricted to 132/7 in the conditions that helped seamers. A target of 133 was not enough, with hosts eclipsing it in the 16th over with six wickets remaining.
Head-to-head in T20Is:
Played – 5, South Africa – 5, Zimbabwe – 0
There could be a couple of changes in both sides, with hosts resting a few members and the visiting side doing it in a desperation to get a win under the belt.
Faf du Plessis is likely to be sitting out, given their plan to give at least two games to every player.
Here’s how the two sides may lineup for South Africa vs Zimbabwe 3rd T20I
South Africa Playing 11:
Wicket-keeper – Quinton de Kock
Batsmen – Gihahn Cloete, Heinrich Klaasen, Rassie van der Dussen, David Miller
All-rounders – JP Duminy, Andile Phehlukwayo
Bowlers – Lungisani Ngidi, Tabraiz Shamsi, Robert Frylinck, Dane Paterson (Doubt: Junior Dala)
Zimbabwe Playing 11:
Wicket-keeper – Brendan Taylor
Batsmen – Hamilton Masakadza, Peter Moor, (Doubt: Solomon Mire, Tarisai Musakanda)
All-rounders – Sean Williams, (Doubt: Elton Chigumbura)
Bowlers – Chris Mpofu, Tendai Chisoro, Brandon Mavuta (Doubt: Kyle Jarvis)
South Africa squad: Faf du Plessis(c), Robert Frylinck, Imran Tahir, Christiaan Jonker, Heinrich Klaasen, David Miller, Lungi Ngidi, Dane Paterson, Andile Phehlukwayo, Tabraiz Shamsi, Gihahn Cloete, Rassie van der Dussen, Junior Dala, Quinton de Kock and Jean-Paul Duminy.
Zimbabwe squad: Hamilton Masakadza(c), Tendai Chisoro, Kyle Jarvis, Brandon Mavuta, Chris Mpofu, Chamu Chibhabha, Wellington Masakadza, Tarisai Musakanda, Tendai Chatara, Solomon Mire, Neville Madziva, Brendan Taylor, Sean Williams, Peter Moor and Elton Chigumbura.
Wicket-keeper: Both Quinton de Kock and Brendan Taylor are quality wicket-keeper batsmen. You can punt on either of the two.
Batsmen: van der Dussen has scored a notable 69 runs in the two outings and can continue to accumulate runs here. Faf du Plessis, Peter Moor and Hamilton Masakadza are among others who can be picked.
Quick Tip: The poor showing from Zimbabwean batsmen might continue and there could be changes. Choose more South African batsmen.
All-rounders: Sean Williams has been terrific and the only one who has challenged South Africans. Robert Frylinck and JP Duminy are among others who can be considered.
Bowlers: Dane Paterson should be the first pick after his Man-of-the-match performance in the second T20I. From Zimbabwe, you can consider Brandon Mavuta and Chris Mpofu.
Quick Tip: Since this is the last game, both the sides are likely to make some changes. Be mindful who is likely to be rested or dropped.
