SA vs ENG Fantasy Cricket Tips:
South Africa:They have never won the world cup and they have the best chance this time as they are being considered as underdogs. They haven’t missed ABD much as youngsters have grabbed the opportunity with both hands. They have played 2 warmup matches in which one they have won against Srilanka and one has been rained affected. Openers Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock have been in sublime form. Faf du Plessis has been sensational, the middle order has been boosted with the arrival of JP Duminy and Finishing has been managed by David Miller and Morris/Phehlukwayo. Their bowling is headed by Kagiso Rabada supported by Lungi Ngidi and Imran Tahir. Dale Steyn has shoulder injury so he will not play the first match. Their Bowling is much stronger when compared to England.
X-Factor: Kagiso Rabada
Probable XI:Hashim Amla, Quinton de Kock (wk), Faf du Plessis (c), Rassie van der Dussen, Jean-Paul Duminy, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Imran Tahir, Chris Morris/ Dwaine Pretorius, Kagiso Rabada, Lungi Ngidi
England:England is coming off as favorites tag in this tournament, after 2015 they have totally changed the brand of cricket that they play due to which they are current No.1 Ranked team in ODI. They have won eleven out of the last twelve ODI bilateral series that they have played, drawing the remaining one with the West Indies. They start bashing with their Openers Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy, then Joe Root is the glue by which the team sticks around and then Captain Eoin Morgan, Jos Buttler, and Ben Stokes are floaters, they play according to the situation. Their bowling is boosted by the inclusion of Jofra Archer, though he hasn’t played much of International cricket, however his IPL and County cricket performances are enough to justify his talent. Chris Woakes and Adil Rashid will be the key in this bowling lineup as well.
X-Factor: Jos Buttler
Probable XI:Jonny Bairstow, Jason Roy, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Jos Buttler (wk), Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, Moeen Ali, Jofra Archer, Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood
