IN-A vs SA-A Dream11 : Hosts look to complete a comprehensive sweep of the series when the two sides meet in as many days for the culminating clash of the series
As far as one-sided series go, we don’t need to turn further away than the ongoing one between India A and South Africa A to get a glimpse into what one looks like. Winning all four of the previous encounters, India A find themselves looking to complete their aspirations of sweeping the five match series today and completing their tighthold over the visitors.
Although India A were envisaged to be the better side in the series, fathoming such a dominance was unrealistic. However with South Africa having to put on any kind of a fight, India have been quick to exert their might, having South Africa entrapped in their rigorous grasps all across the series, an impasse the visiting side have failed to wrench free off.
Succumbing to three defeats prior to today’s concluding encounter, for South Africa A, this clash is all about regaining some lost pride. Be it the batting or bowling department, they have been outshone in every facet by the hosts who have spared no expensive in leaving their opponents in disarray and condemning them to a downward spiral.
What would buoy the South Africans though is yesterday’s result with the side finally defeating India to salvage something from the series. A rain shortened encounter which carried onto Thursday after play couldn’t be completed on Wednesday saw South Africa reach 137-1 in 25 overs, seeing them seal a 4 run win. They’ll be looking to build on that today and make it 3-2 in the series, a respectable scoreline given how they were trounced 3-0 earlier.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Despite having rain in all the previous four clashes, the likelihood of rain intervening tomorrow as well is extremely low with the chances of us having our first full fledged encounter increasing massively. However, rain should make a visit at some point which could see this encounter be shortened once again, much like all the four bygone encounters.
This is a wicket to bat first on if it doesn’t rain with the spinners coming into effect in the second part of the clash. However if rain looms and lashes the track, the side winning the toss will be looking to chase here.

IN-A vs SA-A Match Prediction
We can’t see any side winning this clash other than India A. They have thrived and flourished all across their life in the series, unsparing in their approach to relentlessly and ruthlessly trounce the visitors and mince them with ease.
India A should dominate South Africa in both the departments and cruise to a win today as well.

IN-A vs SA-A Dream11 Batsmen
With South Africa A making massive changes in the previous clash as they looked to give lesser played players some time out in the middle, we could see changes being rung in this one as well. This sees us opting for names who are assured of playing for them today and have persistently contributed with the bat as well with us brining in Reeza Hendricks as the first player from the side.
He’s accompanied by Temba Bavuma while we have opted for an entire trivalent from India by getting in both the openers Shubman Gill, Shikhar Dhawan and Prashant Chopra. Playing their first match of the series the last time around, Dhawan scored 52 while Chopra got 26 vital runs, making them both solid picks for this one.
