SA-W vs IN-W Dream11 Team Prediction: Rain continues to be the biggest threat ahead of
the today’s impending clash between the two sides.
This was touted to be an extremely competitive series, one which promised to revel us in an exuberant and enthralling brand of cricket as two of the world’s biggest cricketing teams clashed heads against each other. However, rain has decided to make a foray and grab all the attention, leaving us famished for the succulent cricket we were promised to be dished out when India and South Africa went at loggerheads against each other.
After winning the opening match of the series with an 11 run win seeing them defend their score of 130 adequately, India moved to the second match looking to build on their opening lead. Rain unfortunately ended up lashing the surface, intervening and leaving us languishing for cricket with the match being abandoned without a single ball being bowled.
And with akin conditions set to prevail over today’s encounter as well, proceedings look bleak for the third match of the series as well with heavy rainfall in sight proceeding the course of the match. It’s a set of events which leaves South Africa especially infuriated with the side looking to comeback after being decimated by India’s spinners in the first match of the series, an encounter where their weaknesses against the slower stuff were exposed shambolically.
Traditionally poor players of the spinning trajectory, South Africa should why they are conventionally such poor players of spin. There was no semblance in their shots or the willingness to apply themselves down in the middle with their bats playing adverse and floundering shots to leave the side well out of the chase, one they never really managed to get a hang of at any point.

Pitch conditions and Toss Prediction
The threat of rain continues to remain strong today as well with the likelihood of the track being slashed by widespread rainfall extremely high. We could be in for either a shortened or an altogether abandoned clash today, leading the side winning the toss opting to field first here.
Altogether, there is not going to be too much in this wicket for the batters with the already crumbling nature of this track being further hampered by rainfall. This looks set to be a low scoring encounter with the spinners thriving on this surface and getting the ball to turn squarely here.
Wicket-keepers for SA-W vs IN-W Dream11
Lizelle Lee didn’t get a massive score in the previous match but her innings of 16 showed glimpses of what she’s capable of with the bat. With rain set to play havoc on proceedings today, opting for the top-order and players who can send the ball to the cleaners is the way to go for this match, seeing us choose the South African wicket-keeper for this one.
Batswomen for SA-W vs IN-W Dream11
Her 43 in 34 balls were critical not only due to the runs she got but the time at which they came in for the side. With India regressing and unravelling in their efforts of piling on a competitive enough score, Harmanpreet Kaur came in to not only hold fort for her side from one end but also ensure that runs were rummaged at a consistent rate to never allow the pressure to get onto her.
The captain is our first pick from India along with opener Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana with us picking off names off the Indian top-order. From South Africa meanwhile we have decided to venture in with just the one pick in the form of Mignon du Preez after her 59 in 43 balls saw her side get as close as plausible to India’s score to see the side go down in a respectable manner.
All-rounders for SA-W vs IN-W Dream11
Her first three overs saw her not even give away a single run and pick up three wickets concurrently, making Deepti Sharma from India our first pick in this facet. The spinner was in imperious touch, the safeguard of Indian’s bowling effort as she manifested her skill set to leave the opposition flabbergasted.
Elsewhere from the visitors we have decided to indulge in the services of Nadine de Klerk after her two wickets in the previous encounter and he high spot she holds in the bowling order.
Bowlers for SA-W vs IN-W Dream11
Given the way in which India decimated South Africa with the ball in the bygone clash, it was only befitting of u to pick out an entire trivalent of picks from the side. New ball operator and spearhead, Shikha Pandey is our first pick with her bound to ominously deviate the ball and entrap the South Africans in a skirmish given the wetness seeped into the surface.
The daunting spin partnership of Radha Yadav and Poonam Yadav is our side’s mainstay, seeing the two hammered down into our side whilst from the South Africans we have Nondumiso Shangase close out our side for today’s impending clash.
