Venue: Kingsmead, Durban.
Pitch & Conditions:
After Port Elizabeth, Kingsmead is considered as one of the slowest & most spin friendly deck in SA. The domestic games in last few years at the venue suggests, spin will play a big role in this game as well.
Wyk, Jaarsveld, Vilas (wk), Miller, Zondo (C), Phehlukwayo, Senuran, Cavage, Subrayen, Tahir, Shezi
(Ackermann for Jonker)
Breetzke, Cloete, Vallie, Ackermann, Smuts (C), Ngoepe, Qeshile, Magala, Birch, Nortje, Sipamla.
From the Vault:
(This section gives you player performance insights after analysing all the white ball games between the two teams till now)
David Miller & Jaarsveld have a terrific record at the venue. David Miller in particular, is one of the best batsman at Durban in Domestic games.
Jaarvseld also has a good record at the venue, but both Wyk & Jaarsveld have struggled against Birch, who’ll take the new ball for Warriors.
In bowling department, Tahir has been the stand out performer not only for his team, but among all the bowlers who have played here.
Senuran Muthusamy is another one, who you shouldn’t miss for this game for his all-round abilities, especially, if Dolphins bowl first.
For Warriors, Smuts & Ackermann are undoubtedly, the best batsmen, but Yaseen Vallie is someone who other fantasy users will ignore, but loves playing at Durban & if plays a big knock again, can give you a good shot at the GL’s.
Ackermann against a lineup with 4 left handers in top 7 can be a really good option for you in the GL’s.
In bowling department, you just cannot play without Birch in your side. Almost guarantees you points with both bowl & bat & so does Magala.
My Dream11 Team:
(Can be updated after toss)
Batsmen: Jaarsveld, Miller, Breetzke, Vallie
(If Dolphins bats first, pick Zondo in place of him)
Allrounders: Smuts (C), Phehlukwayo (VC), Senuran
(Do pick Ackermann in GL’s & can also back Senuran as Cap/VC in your GL teams)
Bowlers: Tahir, Birch, Magala.
Wyk for Jaarsveld & Savage for Vallie. Rest same.
