B.Parsons (Price 10) and T.van Vuuren (Price 8) would be the all-round picks from Proteas. Parsons has been absolutely fantastic in this tournament with both and ball whereas Vuuren has been a decent bowling option too and he can bat as well in the lower order.

SA-U19 vs AF-U19 Dream11 Bowlers
A.Cloete (Price 9) has been the best bowler for Proteas till now. The bowling line-up hasn’t done well but he has been the best amongst the worst.
The spin bowling trio of S.Ghafari (Price 10), Z.Ahmadzai (Price 8.5), and J.Miralikhil (Price 8.5) will complete our line-up. Ghafari has been brilliant for Afghans as he has taken the majority of the wickets for the team whereas both Zohaib and Jamshid made their debuts in the last game and both were really good in that game. All of these 3 would like to continue their form.
[Afghanistan’s bowling has been decent throughout the tournament and that’s why 3 of their bowlers are considered in the team]
