PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11 Team: Pakistan look to edge one step closer towards winning the seven match series today against an agonizing SA batting line-up
South Africa Vs Pakistan U19 Third One Day Best Dream 11 Team
A series which was incredible practice for the two U19 teams has ended up favouring only the one side. For hosts South Africa, the opening two encounters have been horrid, seeing them suffer the aberration of a dismal batting unit.
They went down against Pakistan in the ICC ODI U19 World Cup after failing to put on a big score and despite seeing the predicament continue in the first match of the series, South Africa failed to work on their batting display. Despite being 1-0 down in the series, South Africa catapulted once again in the second match, putting on just 215 while batting first, a target Pakistan got to in 39 overs with 4 wickets to spare.
Now taking on Pakistan in the third match of the series today, the need for South Africa to register a win is getting ever so massive. The need to mull a change in the batting order is a massive one with batsmen who have the stomach for a fight needed to be imbedded in the side if the hosts are to keep their chances alive of winning this series.
Elsewhere for Pakistan it’s all about keeping the bowling in the same areas. The pacers have massively troubled South Africa on wickets where the new ball has frisked and moved around, catching the home side’s dwindling batsmen caught unaware and out of sorts on more occasions than one.
Leading 2-0, we see Pakistan making it 3-0 today. This is a series which is decided by the better batting unit and unfortunately for South Africa they are massively lacking in the department. Be it at the top of the unit or the middle part of their batting facet, there hasn’t been one player who has looked stable and assured while in the middle. We see South Africa falling way short of a healthy score once again, putting in a tepid performance which should see Pakistan win this one as well.
Wicket-Keeper for PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11
He failed in the last match but given his performance in the opening match of the series and the dearth of suitable options from South Africa, we are going with Rohail Nazi from Pakistan.
Batsmen for PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11
Selecting batsmen from two line-ups who have offered the least bit of resilience in this department was a tricky proposition for us and we have picked out the batters solely on recent performances. While there is a massive void in South Africa’s line-up with their batsmen’s apathy refusing to seize, Pakistan still have a few names who have managed to come up with runs.
Among those are Haider Ali and Mohammad Haris and both of them are making an entry into our side. From South Africa we have gone with top-order bat, Jonathan Bird, a performer who is more than well versed with the ball as well and will bring contributions to your side on both the fronts.
All-Rounders for PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11
South African Bryce Parsons is the one player we have never even considered replacing in our side and there’s no reason for us to do so for this match as well. Despite being in a line-up which has failed massively and collectively, the recently anointed captain has augured his way to two incredible performances. A true all-rounder, the player has encapsulated both his batting and bowling capabilities to lay a real stake at an entry into South Africa’s international set up.
He’s going to be accompanied by Andrew Louw while from Pakistan we have only opted for Abbas Afridi.
Bowling Order for PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11
The most bolstered up unit of our Dream 11 side for the third encounter of the seven match Youth Series, there are two bowlers from either country coming in for us. Wickets are bound to pour in this encounter and this department should get the maximum points for your side given the inclement nature of the two sides.
After the takeaways from the opening two matches, we have gotten in spearheads Achille Cloete and Gerald Coetzee from South Africa. From Pakistan, the first undoutable pick was of Naseem Shah, a pacer who has wiped out South Africa’s batting order with his wicket to wicket line and length. Akhtar Shah rounds of our side for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
For the third consecutive time its Bryce Parsons who remains our captain while Pakistan’s bowler Naseem Shah is our vice-captain.
