England vs South Africa Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Can England continue their dominant run?
England were ruthless in their opening game against the defending champions, West Indies. They clearly seemed to have buried the ghosts of 2016 final. England employed a brilliant strategy to choke the opposition well upfront. They went in with Moeen Ali to counter the left-handers in the lineup. Once they broke open their top-order, England attacked with wrist spin.
They continued their good show in the 2nd game too. It was their bowling that won them the game once again. England picked up 3 wickets inside the powerplay to leave Bangladesh reeling. They were impressive with the bat too as Jason Roy plundered the bowling to all corners. England though put on their most clinical show against arch-rivals, Australia. Their new ball bowlers produced a swinging masterclass to bundle the Aussies out for just 125.
Jos Buttler then went on to show why he is considered amongst the 3 white-ball players in the world. He and Roy combined forces to leave the Aussie bowling attack in disarray. Buttler took off from where he left in the game against Sri Lanka. He became the first batsman to notch up a century in this T20 World Cup. England were brilliant in the field and notched up their 4th consecutive win. They are the form team of the tournament. England look unstoppable at this moment.
Will South Africa step up to get counted?
South Africa put in a clinical performance against West Indies in their 2nd game. They had run Australia close in the first game too. But they fell short. They improved their overall game in the match against the Windies despite off-field chaos.
South Africa since then have notched up wins against Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. They have flown under the radar quite a bit. Australia’s big win over the Bangla tigers has pushed the Proteas to turn a giant corner. How they will fare in a must-win game against the form team will dictate the context of Group 1.
