Fantasy Picks

Captain: R Hendricks/ Wayne Parnell

One of the most destructive batters in this T20 tournament. Once he is on, South Africa will go overboard. SA will have this bloke to express himself in their opening game.

If Hendricks couldn’t make the eleven, go with Wayne Parnell. He is an outstanding talent with the ball. He is a little too much for Zimbabwe batters, for sure.

Vice-captain: Sikandar Raza

Raza is currently in an otherworldly zone. With SA possessing four to five left-handers in their batting department, S Raza’s opportunity to snag the wickets are high.

Wicketkeeper: Quinton De Kock

Q De Kock is the one who doesn’t need any introduction or explanation to pick on our side. His value is too high.

Batters: R Hendricks, R Rossouw, C Ervine

Rossouw is yet another show-stealer in South African top-order batting. The modern-day batter goes with his flow, irrespective of the conditions.

C Ervine seems to be in good touch; we can expect 30 or 40 runs from him.

All-rounders: Sean Williams, S Raza, A Markram, W Parnell

Sean Williams being a left-arm spinner, gets the advantage of grabbing the righties in the middle. He had been so consistent in the qualifiers, and it is hoped it will continue the same.

The experienced W Parnell and A Markram will not miss starting this tournament on a high note.

Bowlers: K Maharaj, K Rabada, B Muzarabani

K Maharaj and K Rabada are the strike bowlers of SA. Zimbabwe’s batting unit will find it difficult to overcome this bowling duo. 

The young Muzarabani will continue to impress with his unique release of the ball. His inswingers will get paid. 

If Hendricks isn’t playing because of the batting slot, add D Miller. We all know what he is capable of. 

Other captain options are Q De Kock and S Raza.
