ENG vs SA Dream11 Team Prediction | South Africa vs England ICC Cricket World Cup 2019

The warm-ups have ended and the first match for the trophy is scheduled between England and South Africa. England is in form right now, whitewashing Pakistan in recent ODI series between them (4-0). Eoin Morgan is ready to take England to their maiden World Cup victory on home soil, especially since England has only lost 1 ODI from the past 15 they have played.

South Africa should be able to find their form coming into this match,  having been the favorites in almost every World Cup thus far. Their bowling lineup is looking spectacular right now, with the likes of Lungi Ngidi, Dale Steyn and Kaglso Rabada.

The batting order of England versus the bowling prowess of South Africa will be a wonder to watch. Hopefully, we see a close and challenging game for both teams.

ENG vs SA Dream11 Fantasy Team

Fantasy picks from South Africa

Kagiso Rabada | Quinton de Kock | Hashim Amla

  • Since South Africa’s bowling lineup is their main strength, they will expect Kagiso Rabada to provide the team with some early wickets. He has so far got 13 wickets in his last 9 matches.
  • Boasting a batting average of 66.14 against England, Quinton de Kock is a dependable pick. In the 8 innings he has played against England, he has picked up a total of 463 runs.
  • Hashim Amla is back in the South African squad after a short period of being out of form. He will be looking to score big this world cup, considering he is only 90 runs away from the 8,000 runs milestone. If he is able to do so in 3 innings, he will be the fastest man to score 8,000 runs in limited overs format.

Fantasy picks from England

Joe Root | Eoin Morgan | Jofra Archer

  • Joe Root has been really phenomenal against South Africa, scoring 477 runs in the past 9 innings against them. He should provide a good score if he can cement himself on the field.
  • Eoin Morgan is the ideal player to lead England to their first World Cup victory, especially on home turf. The skipper looks to play his 200th ODI with the English this World Cup. He is also in line to be the first European player to reach 7,000 runs.
  • England will be looking towards Jofra Archer to provide the first wickets of the match. This is also the player’s first World Cup since he started to play for England in April 2019.
