SA Vs ENG Dream11 Prediction: Inclement weather continues to shroud proceedings with rain set to intervene in the third ODI as well.
What was set to be an intriguing three-match ODI series between South Africa and England has unfortunately been ruined owing to floundering weather conditions. The bygone encounter was truncated owing to nonstop rain and the dark clouds are set to hover over today’s clash as well, persistently bursting up to ruin this tie.
And this narrative if transpired will massively perturb the visiting team. They are chasing the series after having been put down in the series opener with South Africa overhauling their underachieving form from the test series to unlock the true potential prevalent in their ranks.
After restricting England to a mere 257, South Africa’s run chase was even more comprehensive with the side cantering it way to a 7 wicket win. England will be wishing that the skies remain clear today and we are able to pull off a result from the contest as the side look to restore parity in the culminating fixture of the series.
On a surface which isn’t extremely helpful for the bats, Nepal will struggle once again. Their batting unit has been a massive disappointment till now and in front of a bowling unit which will scrape wickets at regular intervals, we envision Nepal to falling to a defeat.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Rain continues to take centre stage with inclement the surface set to be lashed by widespread rainfall before and during the encounter. The set of events will lead the side winning the toss opting to chase on a wicket where piling on runs will be extremely tricky given the immense deviations the pacers will get.

Quinton de Kock scored his first ODI 100 while in charge of South Africa in the series opener to see the opener take his side past the finishing line with ease. He’s been his side’s most consistent bat across all formats of the game across the bygone six months to make the South African captain a must have pick for this affair.
Elsewhere, given the likelihood of rain mauling this fixture, either side will be looking to come out and ply on quick runs. It’s something which sees us move in for England’s Johnny Bairstow with the player set to make the most of the powerplay overs.
While England’s Joe Root was always going to be our pick today given his skill set with the bat, his role with the ball makes him an added bonus. He ended up striking as well the last time around to get the one wicket as he made the ball grow onto the batsmen and take him by surprise to see the player come into our side.
England’s captain Eoin Morgan will also be coming in along with Joe Denly who scored 87 runs in the series opener to take England to a respectable and competitive score. Elsewhere, from South Africa we’ll be moving in for Rassie van der-Dussen who remained unbeaten on 38 to take his side past the finishing line in the last tie.
With 97 runs in the series opener and his clean hitting explosive brand of hitting seeing him pile on the runs the last time around as well, Temba Bavuma completes the one-two of picks from the home side.
Just the one pick for us for this encounter with us moving in for England’s Chris Woakes. He came up with an integral knock of 40 runs in the side’s lower middle order in the opening ODI along with being rewarded with the one wicket as well to ingrain in place a true all-round display.
On a wicket where the pacers will get the ball to misbehave, Chris Jordan becomes a must have selection. The English quick is someone who can get the shape on the ball just right, ensuring it comes across and both leaves the bats given his persistence to keep pitching it in the right channels.
After destroying England in the first tie with 3-38, Tabraiz Shamsi marauds his way into our side from South Africa along with Lutho Sipamla.
