PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11 Team: The hosts look to save the series when they take on Pakistan with a 3-0 deficit staring them in the face
South Africa Vs Pakistan U19 Fourth One Day Best Dream 11 Team
Bat first, bowl first or chop and change. The predicament for hosts South Africa has refused to change with the side going onto lose three consecutive matches now, a flabbergasting form of run which sees them staring at a series defeat.
Taking on Pakistan U19 today in the fourth match of the seven match Youth series, the gameplan for South Africa needs a massive overhaul. While the batting has continued to be a major source of dejection for the home side, the bowling waned as well in the third match, allowing Pakistan to chase down what should have been a tricky target with ease.
With a century by Ruan Terblanche taking the team to a respectable 276, South Africa failed to rile Pakistan up while defending their target. The opening stand put on a half-century stand for Pakistan before Haider Ali put on another 102 run partnership with Fahad Munir who got to his half-century as well. Despite a double blow in the 35th over with Ali and Munir both being sent back to the pavilion, the damage was already inflicted on South Africa who went onto lose with 7.5 overs to spare.
Whilst the top-order batting was a decent one by the home side on the day, the lower middle-order once again squandered a massive opportunity to grab the incentive. They were crumbled in the death overs by Afridi and Khan who picked up 6 wickets for 31 runs in the final four overs, seeing South Africa end up well short of atleast 20 runs.
A misdemeanour which has been going on since last year’s ICC U19 ODI Cricket World Cup for South Africa, the side have been completely fizzled out by a Pakistan side who South Africa have failed to navigate past. They’ve now lost four consecutive international matches to them, all encounters in which they have been swept apart.
For South Africa cricket in general, this series is of massive opportunity with the selectors looking to earmark several upcoming players from the prevalent pool to replace what is an agonising and crumbling international squad for them. They need to massively up their game with the batting and bowling both needed to intertwine in unison to come good for their team.
However, we just don’t see South Africa winning today either. They’ve been defeated comprehensively with the lack of a fight the biggest bitter disappointment which has let us down. Pakistan have clearly been the better team and they should win this one with ease as well.
Wicket-Keeper for PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11
Scoring his first ever half-century, a figure he reached in 73 balls, South Africa’s wicket-keeper Luke Beaufort played a steady and a major role in guiding his side to a respectable total. We are entrusting him to do the job for us once again and we finds a place in our side without any doubts.
Accompanying him is Pakistan’s Rohail Nazir, a batsman who has come up with the runs each time he’s batted out in the middle.
Batsmen for PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11
His 116 off 111 balls as an opener saw him ensure that South Africa never held the upper hand in the game and it’s that performance which sees Haider Ali become the first pick for us in this slot. Fahad Munir’s half-century was equally pivotal to his side’s cause, taking them to a 3-0 lead as he set up an important partnership with Ali to shut down South Africa’s shop in the previous fixture.
From South Africa, their centurion Ruan Terblanche becomes the lone selection for us. The 100 was an extremely well made one, an innings where we waged a lone battle and took the brute on himself to do the bulk of the scoring.
All-Rounders for PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11
The one and only component of our team where South Africa dominate with their side having by gar the better options when it comes to the all-rounders. Tiaan Van Vuuren and captain Bryce Parsons have regaled us with their cascading performances, putting on stalwart showings in the face of adversary with both having the stomach of a fight.
From Pakistan we have Abbas Afridi who comes in. he’s picked up wickets in each match, ending with figures of 4-40, a sell that saw him snare not only a bunch of wickets but wickets at important times as well.
Bowling Order for PK-Y vs SA-Y Dream 11
Shiraz Khan got a chance in the previous match and after ending with figures of 3-66, we see him getting an outing in this one as well. Amir Ali will accompany him with us fully expecting South Africa’s callous and abject showing with the bat to continue in this match as well.
For South Africa it’s the experienced and astute Gerald Coetzee who makes a spot for himself in our side. A flawless and dependable performance, he’s consolidated his spot in his team as the mainstay, outrightly taking the responsibility to help his side perturb Pakistan.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have chosen Abbas Afridi as the captain for this while Parsons is the vice-captain here.
