India achieved their 1st ODI series win in South Africa and will look to tweak with their line-up a bit to test their bench strength. So there will be some changes in the playing XI which are hard to predict. SA will look to gather some momentum in this match going into the T20 series coming up next. Apart from some individual performances they haven’t really clicked as a team.
Best economical pick – Kuldeep Yadav proved to be the kingpin for the visitors in this ODI series. He took 4 wickets in the last match to take his tally to 16 wickets for this series. He can even be considered as a captain or vice-captain option.
Top captains & vice captains – Virat Kohli was unlucky to be involved in another run-out with Rohit Sharma. Given his form he is the first preference to be picked as captain of your fantasy team. Aiden Markram has been getting starts in the last 3 ODIs but unable to convert his 30s into big runs. Him being an opening batsmen will face lot less of spin bowling in the initial stage and with India might changing their pace bowling options, it will be a good change for him to end this series on a high.
Smart pick – Hardik Pandya havent contributed much with his batting in this series but in the last match he took two important wickets then a very crucial run out of Hashim Amla which completely turned the match in favour of India and surprised everyone with a one handed catch. His batting form needs to improve which will be vital for the T20 series. So we can expect him to shine with the bat in this match.
Cautious Pick – Jasprit Bumrah has bowled the second most number of balls in this tour so far. Keeping the workload in mind he might get rested in this match. So picking him will be a risk for this match.
My XI – Virat Kohli (Captain), Aiden Markram (Vice-Captain), Y Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Lungi Ngidi, Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, , Heinrich Klaasen, Hardik Pandya, David Miller, Hashim Amla
