SA Vs ENG Dream11, Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Series moves into its decider after regaling us in two humdingers.
This has been a dream series from every aspect of the way. With a one run and two run margin deciding the previous couple of contests, the closely contested, feisty and competitive nature of the series can be easily augured from the extremely bare margin of wins.
Stepping out looking to keep the series alive after being down in the opener, the visitors knew they couldn’t afford to slipup at any stage if they were to restore parity in the series. And they managed to show composure at all the crucial junctures to successfully defend their 205 run target after South Africa lost their way in the final two balls.
While South Africa were left ruing what looked to be a certain win at one stage, the ardent supporters of the game were left rejoicing at the result. With the series finely balanced at 1-1, this tantalising series steps into its decider today, a tie which promises to be as riveting as the previous two matches with everything to play for in this affair.
SA Vs ENG Probable Winner
South Africa fell short by the barest of margins in the previous encounter but the side will be undeterred by that result. What favours them in batting conducive conditions is their more well rounded batting unit, one which should be able to refrain the English unit from piling on a hefty score.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
An absolutely terrific surface for the batsmen, we are going to be immersed in yet another extradonaire high scoring affair. The ball comes onto the bat sublimely here, allowing the batters to crunch the ball to the fence with ease with the team winning the toss set to come out and chase here.

SA Vs ENG Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
South Africa’s captain and opener, Quinton de Kock is undoubtedly cheering the most sublime period of his cricketing career at the moment. Ever since taking charge of his country, the onus of leadership has transformed his way with the bat now taking responsibility to come up with incisive displays for his side.
His 65 run knock in a mere 22 balls the last time around was an epitome of his scintillating touch to see him become a must have player for us for the day. With 35 runs meanwhile, Johnny Bairstow comes in as well from England as we opt for the one player apiece from either side.
SA Vs ENG Dream11 Batsmen
England’s captain Eoin Morgan followed up his 50 from the first T20 of the series with another valuable contribution of 27 runs the last time around to make him our pick in this slot of our Dream 11 side. Opner Jason comes in after getting the 40 runs the last time around while we are moving in with an akin partnership from the home side as well.
We begin with Temba Bavuma after he cantered his way to yet another instrumental performance of 31 runs in the opening slot with Rassie van der-Dussen partnering him up after remaining unbeaten of 46 runs in 23 balls in the foregone tie.
SA Vs ENG Dream11 All-Rounders
England’s Ben Stokes not only put on 47 runs the last time around but came up with the one wicket with the ball as well to make him our first choice in this slot. From the South Africans elsewhere we are indulging in the services of Andile Phehlukwayo after he snared two wickets in the second fixture.
With Tom Curran and Mark Wood both being handed over the ball at a time when South Africa are looking to up the ante, both these quicks make for sublime value. They have the ability to mix up their deliveries and induce false shots in the dismissals, attributes which saw them both snag the two wickets apiece the last time around.
Elsewhere, with three wickets in each of the prior couple of outings, Lungi Ngidi wraps up our Dream 11 side with him being the lone pick from the home setup.
Captain And Vice-Captain and Small League Team
