SA vs WI Dream 11 Prediction
Wicket-keepers for SA vs WI Dream 11
South Africa wicket-keeper batsman Quinton de Kock is the only wicket-keeper in my squad for this match. Having scored 68, 23 and 10 in the tournament so far, de Kock is due for a game-changing innings at the biggest stage. As an opening batsman, de Kock will be looking to bat through the innings for South Africa in times when they need someone to do the same.
Batsmen for SA vs WI Dream 11
Considering the surface in store for us, I have picked as many as four batsmen for the 15th match of 2019 World Cup. Among the South African batsmen, I have gone ahead with their captain Faf du Plessis and middle-order batsman Rassie van der Dussen.
In eight ODI innings against West Indies, du Plessis has scored three half-centuries. Knowing that the West Indian bowling attack had reduced Pakistan and Australia to 75/5 and 79/5 respectively, I expect du Plessis to put on a resolute show today.
As far as van der Dussen is concerned, five half-centuries in 11 ODI innings in association with an average of 66.57 speaks highly of his start in the format. Having scored 50, 41 and 22 in the tournament so far, van der Dussen would be looking to convert his start into a big innings today.
Veteran West Indies opening batsman Chris Gayle’s presence in my team doesn’t require any reasoning. Gayle has looked in form in the two matches he has played so far. On his day, the southpaw will tear apart any attack he faces.
While I wanted opt for West Indies wicket-keeper batsman Shai Hope, a budget constraint has made me pick their opening batsman Evin Lewis. Thus, picking both West Indian openers.
All-rounders for SA vs WI Dream 11
In Dale Steyn and Lungi Ngidi‘s absence, South Africa all-rounder Chris Morris has stood tall for them. Contributing across divisions, the 32-year old cricketer seems to have taken the onus on himself. It is recent showing which has made me pick him for this match.

West Indies all-rounder duo of Andre Russell and Jason Holder are the other two all-rounders in my Dream11 fantasy team. Both the cricketers have done well in the tournament. While Russell should have sealed the chase against Australia, I expect him to make amends against a struggling South African team.
This trio might have have topped the charts but their contribution in both the innings should be enough for you to earn significant points.
Bowlers for SA vs WI Dream 11
Much like Morris, South Africa fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has also done well of late. Not an all-rounder, Rabada has scored 11, 13* and 31* in three innings. In addition to his wicket-taking ability, Rabada scoring some runs should come good for you.
In a couple of matches that West Indies fast bowler Oshane Thomas has played so far, he has dismissed six batsmen at an average of 15, an economy rate of 5.74 and a strike rate of 15.6. The manner in which he has picked wickets with the new ball this tourney is second to none.
At 8.5 credits each, both him and his bowling partner in Sheldon Cottrell are two budget buys for my Dream11 team today.
