Nostragamus: IND-A vs SA-A 2019 – 5th ODI Fantasy Preview

It was getting to be a completely one-sided contest as India A were starting to dominate their opponents, winning the first three games and taking a 3-0 lead in the 5-match ODI series. After that, they changed their squad and ended up losing a very tight 4th ODI against South Africa A. Once again, there was a rain interruption and we can expect the same going into the 5th and final ODI.

Indian pitches so you should always pick the spinners and of course, the best batsmen. We’re playing at the same pitch where all 4 previous games were played. This will be the last game of the series before the teams play 2 unofficial Tests.

India A

India A announced a new captain in Shreyas Iyer for the final 2 ODIs. Star batsmen for Delhi Capitals and regular part of the Indian T20 side, he’s way ahead of his league and we can expect a big score from him. Another player who has massive experience is Shikhar Dhawan, who scored a fifty in the 4th ODI. These two play for the same IPL franchise and they bat well together.

Yuzvendra Chahal picked up 7 wickets in his 3 games in this series before Rahul Chahar was brought in his place. Chahar was a revelation in the IPL 2019 and he picked the only SA-A wicket to fall in the 4th ODI. Tushar Deshpande is one of the rising fast bowlers from Mumbai. His last 5 games have watched him go wicketless but remember, he had 12 wickets in 5 games prior to that.

South Africa A

Reeza Hendricks scored 110 in the first game, had a couple of failures and then 60 in the 4th game. I’ll skip him from my Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy picks as he’ll be a part of most teams and consistency hasn’t been his biggest plus point. Instead, I’ll pick captain Temba Bavuma who is yet to get a big score this series. With scores of 8, 40, 27, 28* so far, you’d expect him to get a big one.

Another person who has been in prime form with the bat is Heinrich Klaasen and he’ll be my wicket-keeper pick for today. With the ball, I’ve insisted on picking Anrich Nortje who is an upcoming talent who was also picked for IPL 2019 but missed it because of injury. He is their leading wicket-taker this series while spinner Bjorn Fortuin could also be a good fantasy selection.
