PK-W vs SA-W Dream 11 Prediction: Best Dream11 team for today’s South Africa vs Pakistan Women 4th T20 match as TSR helps you with Dream 11

The third T20 between the South Africa and Pakistan women was a testament to the topsy turvy nature of cricket the two sides have immerged in this summer. The T20 series has played out in the same fashion as the ODI one did, changing hands several times with both the sides showing glimpses of their wordclass skill set.

After having restored parity with a comprehensive showing in the second ODI, South Africa faltered in the previous encounter to hand back the incentive to Pakistan. A spectacular batting display by the hosts saw them register a healthy 138-3 with Tazmin Brits 70 followed up by a stupendous 28 in 18 balls by captain Sune Luus. An unprecedented 38 runs came in the last 3 overs and the home side followed it up brilliantly on the bowling front in the opening exchanges.

At 3-3, Pakistan looked certain to be pummelled to another defeat before Iram Javed scored 55 in 44 balls as South Africa’s bowlers squandered away the advantage they had garnered. In the end it was a dismal performance by SAW, one that sees them heading into the fourth T20 trailing the 5 match series 2-1.

However, if South Africa have showed us anything this series, it’s the fact that they are a resolute side who never know when to back down. As they head into the must win encounter on Wednessday, we envision them setting up a win and taking the encounter all the way into the decider in the culminating match.

It’s this outcome which is going to shape our Dream 11 side as well. While we are going to maintain an equal balance from both the sides, South African players will hold the fort in our captain and vice-captaincy picks.

Wicket-Keeper for PK-W vs SA-W Dream 11

Sinalo Jafta continues to be our pick for this role. We have not shifted away from her for the entire series and aren’t going to do so for this match either. Being the lowest scoring department throughout this series, we are going to opt for Jafta solely on the reason that she’s 0.5 credits cheaper than Nawaz and will also find herself fruitfully involved with catches and stumpings.

Batsmen for PK-W vs SA-W Dream 11

Opener Lizelle Lee found herself extremely unlucky to be runout the previous time around for just the 2 runs but that is not going to deter us from including her in our side. The opener has been in outstanding touch throughout the ODI and T20 series, setting up the perfect foundation for her side to revolve around. Come the fourth T20, she’ll take mantle of delivering yet another crucial innings for her side in the opening role and we fully expect her to come up with the goods yet again.

The player who really surprised us the previous time around was Tazmin Brits. She’s endured an average spree of form through the season but she came to the party the last time around with the most exquisite innings we’ve seen this series. She comes straightaway into our side with us earmarking her to construct yet another solid stand with Lizelle.

From Pakistan we are going to pick their most dependable player Bismah Mahroof. She’s amassed a good quantity of runs and she’ll surely be back at it again. Iram Javed is our second pick despite her coming so low down the order given that Pakistan’s top-order is extremely undependable.

All-Rounders for PK-W vs SA-W Dream 11

Kapp didn’t feature the last time around and we don’t see her playing with Nadine de Klerk making the most of the opportunity accorded to her the previous time around.  And she’s just who is going to be replacing Kapp as well in our side especially given the pivotal number 3 spot she occupies and the consistent 3 overs she’s guaranteed.

Chloe Tyron was kept out of the bowling attack, a flabbergasting decision given how she’s always someone who stems the barrage of runs for her side. We are going to keep entrusting her and she’ll be the second pick in this facet for us.

From Pakistan, it’s as usual going to be Nida Dar who is our pick. She contributes with both the bat and ball and there’s no one else we need to turn to.

Bowlers for PK-W vs SA-W Dream 11

Shabnim Ismail will be holding fort for us from South Africa. The frontline pacer always makes perfect use of the new ball and with Pakistan’s opening pair in tatters, she’ll be among the wickets for her side yet again. With figures of 3-13 in the previous match, Moseline Daniels is going to be our second and last pick from the home side. She and Ismail will construct an exuberant deadly partnership, one that can easily obliterate Pakistan.

Our team is completed by the sole bowler from Pakistan in Aliya Riaz given that she’s the first of the bowlers to come out and bat. Her 30 runs innings and 44 run partnership was one of the main reasons to taking Pakistan to a 4 wicket win and with atleast a wicket in each match, we are going to bring her back in our side.

Captain And Vice-Captain

This is perhaps one of the most important decisions in the game and after hefty deliberations, we are going to make Nadine de Klerk our captain and Nadine Dar the vice-captain.

Probable Winner

If the ODI series and the ongoing T20 series have taught us anything, it is that expect plenty of twists and turns when these sides take to the field. With fortunes changing hands so rapidly, we fathom South Africa showing immense fighting spirit and making a comeback into the series. They should be the likely side to come out of this encounter with a win.

The side winning the toss will be looking to chase with the fielding side having fared the greener rub of the fortunes this series.
