Ind vs SA Dream11 Prediction
|Match Date:||5th June, Wednesday|
|Match Timing:||3:00 PM|
|Expected Crowd Turnout:||20,000|
|Match Venue:||Rose Bowl Cricket Ground|
The eight match of the ICC World Cup 2019 will see India battle it out against South Africa at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground in Hampshire, England. Last edition’s semi finalists, India would be raring to start their World Cup campaign on a winning note. South Africa, on the other hand, would be looking forward to turn their fortunes around. The team had lost the first two fixtures against hosts England and Bangladesh.
Here is complete Ind vs SA Dream11 Prediction :
|Key Players in form||IND – MS Dhoni, KL Rahul, Kuldeep Yadav.
SA – Faf du Plessis, JP Duminy.
|Weather Conditions||26℃, 44% Humidity, Winds up to 10 km/hr. Mostly sunny weather.|
|Toss Advantage||Traditionally, teams batting first have won 13 times in the 22 ODIs played here. In fact, defending teams have won 8 of the last 10 games. So batting first at the Rose Bowl stadium is a no-brainer.|
|Pitch Conditions||Traditionally, the ground has been a pacer’s paradise with plenty of low scoring games on offer. However, things have been different off late. The pitch has become more receptive towards the batsmen, evident from the last two limited overs games played here. The last ODI (between England and Pakistan) saw a total of 735 runs scored there in total. In the last international game – a WC warm up match between England and Australia – again saw the Australia scoring 297 runs. Thus, expect a 280+ score here.
|Venue Stats||Last Match: ENG 373/3 | 361/7 PAK|
|Ground Size:||Side Boundaries: 64 m, Straight Boundary: 82 m|
|IND- Virat Kohli was feared to have seriously injured his in the nets during a training session. Fortunately, according to sources, he is all right at the moment. Kedar Jadhav is also expected to be fit for the opener. However, Vijay Shankar will miss the match with an elbow injury.
SA – In a major blow to the team, Lungi Ngidi has been ruled out for the fixture. His replacement, Dale Steyn also got injured, prompting the SA board to bring left-arm seamer Beuran Hendricks into picture.
South Africa would be sweating over the fitness of Hashim Amla..

Ind vs SA Dream11 Prediction
India started their long stay in England with a surprising defeat in the World Cup warm up match against New Zealand. The Kiwis first bowled out the Men in Blue for a merge 179 runs before comfortably winning by 6 wickets. The opening order collapse was to blame for India setting low target. At 50/2, the second WC match could have ended in a similar fashion had Virat Kohli and KL Rahul not stood in time. The latter even hit an assuring knock of 108, virtually killing the question over who will feature in the fourth spot.
South Africa, on the other hand, had a tough start to the season, having lost both their opening World Cup games. The first was a disheartening 104 defeat at the hands of hosts England. The Proteas failed to restrict the home team from going past the 300-run mark. The batsmen then failed dearly to chase the total, falling down for just 207. The second loss against Bangladesh seemed like a replay of the English beating, with the bowlers again unable to prevent opposition from scoring runs. Although Faf du Plessis and Co did manage to bat well, they still fell short by 21 runs. The injury to Lungi Ngidi and Dale Steyn makes an already underperforming bowling attack look even worse.

However beleaguered they may look, India shouldn’t take South Africa lightly in any manner. The Men in Blue have an inferior World Cup record against the Proteas, having lost 3 out of the four matches played between them. In fact, they had lost the opening fixture in the 2011 ICC World Cup against South Africa before going on to lift the title.
The only time India has beaten South Africa was in the 2015, when a they won by a big margin of 130 runs. Back then, Shikhar Dhawan had scored a fine century after Ravichandran Ashwin scalped three wickets to restrict South Africa to a total of 177 runs.
India are the only team that has yet to take the field and the entire nation and cricketing fraternity is looking forward to their arrival.
This is a tough game to predict, even though India look to be the firm favourites. While South Africa’s problems with the pace have been compounded by injuries to Lungi Ngidi and Dale Steyn, India have not been convincing in the last few games. Nonetheless, with a superior side and experience, Virat Kohli and Co look fit enough to beat SA.
Although the conditions on the given day might change the situation, Rose Bowl’s pale brown and dry pitch is likely to stay a batting paradise. Spinners might get some help from the dry and rough patches, so dealing with Imran Tahir will be a task for Indians on 22nd June. Our suggestion would be to choose 4 batsmen, 2 all rounder and 4 bowlers (with two spinners and 2 pacers).
Whose players you choose depends a lot on which team bats first. (The team that bats first has a high chance of victory, and thus, choosing more player from that side makes sense.)
