RSA vs NL Match Preview

Quinton de Kock and Rilee Rossouw have been quite inconsistent for South Africa but you may want to have them in your Dream11 team against the Netherlands. We also like Aiden Markram since he bats at number four and is in good form. We are not going to venture much deeper than this because the batters might not get a chance. 

Nortje and Ngidi are the obvious choices in the bowling lineup but our aim will be to pack as many South African bowlers as possible. 

The Netherlands does not have many quality players. Logan van Beek and Paul van Meekeren are two of the bowlers that have performed well while Max O'Dowd is perhaps the only real quality batter. Bas de Leede is also a decent all-rounder to consider. 

Weather Report

As of now, there does not seem to be any rain expected in Adelaide. The forecast is clear and the temperatures will be quite comfortable. Ideal for cricket.

Pitch Report

The pitch at Adelaide is usually brilliant for batting. The short square boundaries also make it easy to hit boundaries and sixes so the par score here is higher than at other venues. Something around 180-200 cannot be ruled out if South Africa bats first. 

Notable stats

Pace like Fire

Anrich Nortje has taken 10 wickets in the T20 World Cup 2022 edition already and is going to be very tough to stop. His rapid pace and awkward bounce make him an ideal candidate for the Dream11 captain as well.

Team News

David Miller may continue to rest and get himself ready for the semi-finals. The rest of the lineups should remain unchanged.

Dream11 Prediction

We think South Africa is going to dominate this match, no matter whether they bat first or second. Their batting is superior and their bowling is one of the best in this tournament. 

Top Picks

Anrich Nortje - 10 wickets to his name show that he is in good form. Bowlers of pace can often run through the lower-ranked teams.

Lungi Ngidi - No other bowler in the world takes wickets with as much frequency as Lungi Ngidi. Another excellent option to have in the lineup.
