Pakistan U-19 Tour of South Africa 2019 – 3rd ODI Fantasy Preview

Pakistan recently beat South Africa in the ICC 2019 World Cup and the same is happening at the junior level too, where Pakistan U-19 seem to be holding the upper hand against the current hosts, South Africa U-19. The two teams are playing a series of 7 Youth ODIs between 22 June and 7 July and so far, Pakistan have won both, the first by 17 runs and the second by 4 wickets.

The 3rd ODI will be played at the same ground in Pietermaritzburg. A relatively better pitch for batting, anything under 250 will not be acceptable for the team batting first. While PAK U-19 begin as favourites once again, the hosts have exciting talent in their team and it won’t be a one-sided contest.

South Africa U-19

I started the series by asking you to pick one South African player consistently and that was Bryce Parsons. Even if his team keeps losing through the series, Parsons is a genuine all-rounder and he is always going to get your fantasy league points. He picked up 2-wicket hauls in each of the 2 ODIs so far, to go with one fifty as well. Pick Parsons and pick him as a captain or vice-captain to maximise your profits.

With the bat, Luke Beaufort and Jonathan Bird scored forties, but the former was dropped and the latter bagged a duck in the second game. If he plays. pick Bird for this encounter. Remember, Andrew Louw is the highest scorer with 107 (16 and 91) runs in 2 games thus far. With the ball, the best option seems to be Achille Cloete who has 3 wickets so far in 2 games and proved in the 2nd ODI that he can be handy with the bat too.

Pakistan U-19

Rohail Nazir has to be in your fantasy team and your wicket-keeper for this encounter. He recently had a breathtaking series of 320 runs in 4 games against Sri Lanka U-19 before smashing 67(81) in the 2nd ODI. The PAK U-19 captain has batted as an opener, at number 3 and in the last game at 4, and he seems to do well at every spot. The other batsman to pick is Haider Ali who also had 3 fifties in Sri Lanka and don’t forget, 60(52) in the 1st ODI.

Fahad Munir has scores of 2 and 0 in this series so far so he may be rested for the 3rd ODI. If he does make the team, add him to your Dotball (Sign-up and get Rs. 51 FREE) fantasy team as he won’t be a very popular pick. With the ball, you must have Akhtar Shah in your team as he was the highest wicket-taker for Pakistan in Sri Lanka. Here too, he has 4 wickets in 2 games and is almost always among the wickets.
