Before advancing to the semi-final, England face South Africa in the last round-robin game of the two sides. The Three Lions are more likely to finish at the top of the table, unless they suffer a huge loss at the hands of South Africa. The Proteas, on the other, badly need a win from this game to make sure they remain in contention for the second semi-final spot from Group 1. In fact, what Temba Bavuma and company would hope is a big win over the Englishmen to see to their net run rate getting past Australia’s.
Given both the sides have world-class players and some of them haven’t performed yet, it is very tough to pick only XI out of the total. However, there are some must-picks like Jos Buttler, Anrich Nortje, Chris Jordan and Tabraiz Shamsi. Buttler, meanwhile, is also a good choice to be the captain for the fantasy team as he knows the batting conditions better than any other player, courtesy his sensational unbeaten ton in his side’s previous game against Sri Lanka. On the other hand, the likes of Quinton de Kock and Dawid Malan have not performed to their reputation, but they can play a big role in the game. Notably, Tymal Mills has been ruled out of the ongoing tournament, so Mark Wood is more likely to make it to the playing XI.
