SA vs AUS Dream11 Prediction: South Africa vs Australia – 4 March 2020 (Bloemfontein)
South Africa will take on Australia in the 2nd ODI of the 3 match ODI series which will be played at the Manguang Oval in Bloemfontein. South Africa completely dominated Australia in the first game courtesy of Heinrich Klassen’s century and some tight bowling the middle-overs.
South Africa are now just 1 victory away from clinching their 1st series win in over 10 months and they would like to not give it away like always. Australia, on the other end, would be eager to make a comeback as both the games are now DO or DIE for them. Australia possesses a very strong squad and just wants the players to perform to their strengths. Ashton Agar may find his place in the team again.
Pitch Report – Manguang Oval has been a decent batting wicket with an average 1st innings score of 241. The winning captain would be tempted to bat first.

5 Must-Have Players in the Squad
Quinton de Kock, David Warner, Steve Smith, Temba Bavuma, and Lungi Ngidi.
SA vs AUS Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
Quinton de Kock (Price 10.5) will be the wicket-keeper of our squad as he has been in a sublime form since last couple of months. Quinton is a brilliant striker of the ball and will carry the responsibility to give Proteas a brilliant start.
SA vs AUS Dream11 Batsmen
The batting trio of David Warner (Price 10.5), Steve Smith (Price 10), and Marnus Labuschagne (Price 8.5) will be our batters from Australia. Warner failed in the last game but can be serious game-changer as his form is very good. Smith played another brilliant innings playing at number 3 whereas Labuschagne also looked solid in the last game. These 3 will be the best picks from the Australian side.
[Aaron Finch struggles against the in-swinging fast bowlers in the ODI games and it was clear in the last game too]
Temba Bavuma (Price 8.5) and Heinrich Klassen (Price 8.5) will be our batters from the Proteas. Klassen scored his maiden century in the ODI and he was in brilliant form in the domestic circuit too whereas Bavuma is also a rock-solid player and will be a good pick.
SA vs AUS Dream11 All-Rounders
Ashton Agar (Price 8) will be our lone all-rounder in the team. Ashton was absolutely brilliant in the T20 games with the ball and also played a brilliant knock with the bat. Ashton will be back in the side for this game
SA vs AUS Dream11 Bowlers
Mitchell Starc (Price 9) and Pat Cummins (Price 9) will be our bowlers from Australia. Starc and Cummins are one of the best white-ball bowlers and this was proved in the last game too. Both of them are genuine wicket-takers with the ball.
Tabraiz Shamsi (Price 8.5) and Lungi Ngidi (Price 8.5) will be our picks from the Proteas. Shamsi and Ngidi are the best wicket-takers in this African side and will be great picks in this game too.
Match Prediction: Australia will be the favourites to win this game.
