South Africa A Tour of India 2019 – 1st ODI Fantasy Preview

South Africa and India have always enjoyed a good rivalry in cricket and now, South Africa A will be tested in the subcontinent as they depart on a tour of India between 29th August and 20th September 2019. In all, the tour will comprise of 5 unofficial ODIs and 2 unofficial Tests. All 5 ODIs will be played at Thiruvananthapuram while the tests will be played at Kerala and Mysore.

The biggest rule for A-team games is always pick those players first, who have represented the senior team in international cricket. Nothing counts more than experience especially in the 50-over and the longest formats of the game. SA-A has a fixed squad but IND-A changes theirs after the 3rd ODI.

India A

Both sides have batsmen in great form, so go batting heavy, especially since we’re playing in India. India A is being led by Manish Pandey who has been in and out of the Indian team since a few years now. Three games at KPL 2019 and Pandey is yet to be dismissed. In the Duleep Trophy, Shubman Gill and Ruturaj Gaikwad are representing India Blue; you can pick them both if they leave that tournament for this series.

Krunal Pandya has been brilliant with both bat and ball in recent months. He scored 32 and picked 3 wickets in 3 T20Is against West Indies a couple of weeks back. Prior to that, he had 7 wickets and 47 runs in 3 T20s against West Indies A. The most experienced bowler in this squad is Yuzvendra Chahal, someone who has been a vital part of Team India over the last few years. A lethal wicket-taking option indeed!

South Africa A

The first person to enter my PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team today has to be Janneman Malan who has been in scorching form in the last month or two. His stats for SA Emerging Team recently includes four consecutive matches with a 50+ score. Captain Temba Bavuma is also coming into this series in some hot form with two consecutive 100+ scores for Northants in the First-Class competition.

Another player in red-hot form is Theunis de Bruyn who has 609 runs in his last 10 matches for Titans back home which includes 4 fifties and, smashing LA top score of 183 and a single failure of 6 runs. With the ball, pick Anrich Nortje who has 11 wickets in his last 6 games including 8 in 4 ODIs against Sri Lanka before CWC 2019. He was also picked for IPL 2019, so he knows his limited overs bowling for sure.
