SA Vs ENG Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Hosts step out with aspirations of wrapping up the series today.
After a cliff-hanger of a series opener, the action resumes with the second T20 taking over the cricketing fraternity after just the space of a day. Given the way the first encounter unfolded, we are bound to be immersed in yet another humdinger between two worldclass units.
The match contested on Wednesday was a pure thriller, a crackling contest which persistently changed hands before finally nestling South Africa’s way. England’s approach in the last two overs was baffling with the visitors ruing what should have been a relatively easy win as they failed to chase down 7 runs in the final over to see South Africa defend their 177 by the sole run.
Where England will be left dejected after that display, the hosts on the other hand will be immensely buoyed by the composure they showed to seal a tie which looked to be a lost cause. They’ll be bolstered ahead of today’s forthcoming clash as they step out looking to seal the series and with it finally get their hands around atleast one trophy after having earlier faltered in the test and ODI series.
SA Vs ENG Probable Winner
The first T20 showed why this series was so highly anticipated and awaited. We are going to be in for a reminiscent edge of the sea thriller today as well with extremely fine margins coming into play to determine the winner.
What favours South Africa is their more adept and well rounded bowling unit, one which will help ease up crucial runs to take the side to a series winning win today.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A surface which only gets more pristine as the match runs down its course, this s a surface where the team winning the toss will be looking to come out and subject themselves to a chase. The initial period will offer something for the pacers before the track completely settles down to allow the bats to cream the ball to the fence.

SA Vs ENG Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
South Africa’s captain and opener, Quinton de Kock came up with 31 runs in 15 balls to see us make him our first pick for the day. He’s been the most dependable bat in his side’s unit over some time now with his significant numbers guiding South Africa to healthy totals.
We have the one name being enshrined in our setup from England as well with us opting for Jonny Bairstow after he contributed 23 runs in the number slot the last time around.
SA Vs ENG Dream11 Batsmen
Temba Bavuma needed a mere 27 balls to blast his way to 43 runs as the opener ensured that his side were able to capitalise on the powerplay overs. He provided the ideal foundation to his unit, one which was further consolidated by Rassie van der Dussen who got 31 runs to see us bring in both of them for the day’s tie.
Elsewhere, from England we are moving in for the two names as well with captain Eoin Morgan being an instant pick for us. Although he’ll be kicking himself after throwing his wicket away the last time around, he was also the reason England looked set to canter their way to a win with 52 runs in 34 balls.
Opener Jason Roy got 70 runs to see him complete the set of picks from England’s side for the encounter.
SA Vs ENG Dream11 All-Rounders
With the 18 runs with the bat and the two wickets with the ball, Andile Phehlukwayo becomes the first player to be snared by us from the home side for this outing. He came up with a truly all-round display, one which makes him sublime value in this ambit.
Elsewhere, from England we are getting in Ben Stokes for this fixture given his traits in both the facets of the game.
SA Vs ENG Dream11 Bowling Order
Had it not been for Lungi Ndidi, South Africa would have failed to register a win on the day. His slower deliveries not only left England flummoxed but saw him induce false shots in the bats as e took away pace from the ball and forced them to hole out the ball in the deep. He got three wickets courtesy of his variations to make him our first pick for this one.
Beuran Hendricks got the two wickets to see him complete our partnership from the home side while from England we are moving in for Adil Rashid.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Jason Roy recent showings see us make him our side’s captain while Quinton is our vice-captain.
