SL vs SA 3rd ODI Dream11 Suggestions
Quinton de Kock’s mind-boggling exhibitions in the past couple of ODIs make him an ideal selection for the wicket-keeper’s role. The 26-year-old has aggregated a tally of 175 runs while averaging 87.50 and looks in great shape to belt in some crucial numbers in the coming feud too.
Oshado Fernando and Faf du Plessis’s consistent performances in the concurrent series make the duo a definite addition for SL vs SA Dream11 lineup. While the former has amassed 80 runs at an average of 40.00, the latter on the other hand has aggregated a tally of 169 runs when playing at an average of 169.00.
For the third spot, one could opt in for Kusal Mendis as he’s a sensible player who could adapt to the changing pitch conditions.
Rassie van der Dussen could be considered too when taking into account his ability to change gears and belt humongous run tallies in a short interval.
Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi’s scintillating figures of 3/43 and 2/14 respectively in the freshly concluded ODI at Centurion makes the duo a vital inclusion for the coming feud.
Imran Tahir and Anrich Nortje would be the third and fourth inductions as they too bowled pretty well in the recently finished contest by scraping figures of 2/39 and 2/25 respectively.
Thisara Perera’s rip-roaring figures of 3/26 with the ball and 23 runs off 23 deliveries with the bat makes him the foremost pick among the all-rounders.
As for the second pick, one could go in for Dhananjaya de Silva for his equally enthralling performance in the lately concluded duel wherein he acquired a figure of 2/55 in his eight overs of play. The fact that he’s a tremendous batsman down the middle further strengthens his position in the fantasy XI lineup.
Captain and Vice-Captain
Quinton de Kock and Faf du Plessis would be the top contenders for the skipper’s spot. The trio of Thisara Perera, Kagiso Rabada and Lungi Ngidi could also be considered when finalizing the players for the positions of captain and vice-captain.
