Fantasy Cricket Match Predictions: South Africa v Australia 2nd T20I

The 2nd match of the three-match T20I series between South Africa and Australia will be played at the St George's Park in Port Elizabeth.

After being bowled out for just 89 runs, their lowest ever T20I total, South Africa suffered a 107-run defeat at the hands of Australia in the first T20I which is their biggest defeat in the format, even bigger than their 95 -run defeat against Australia at Brisbane in 2006.

Aston Agar's 5-wicket haul, which also came with a hat-trick, was the 4th best figures against Australia in this format and the best figures for Australia in T20Is.

Aaron Finch and Steve Smith were the Australian top order batsmen who set the pace for their innings. Both batted at strike rates of over 140 which allowed the likes of Matthew Wade, Mitchell Marsh and Ashton Agar to go after the bowling in the slog overs.

Apart from Agar who was obviously their stand out bowler, Pat Cummins and Adam Zampa also picked up two wickets each. This came after an early onslaught from Mitchell Starc which shook the Protea batting.

Dale Steyn looked impressive for South Africa with figures of 4-31-2. Left-arm wrist spinner Tabraiz Shamsi was also good, picking up two scalps. Among the batters, only Faf du Plessis, Pite van Biljon and Kagiso Rabada reached double figures.

Expect the home side to come back strongly in the next game.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

 

South Africa - Quinton de Kock (c & wk), Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen, Faf du Plessis, JJ Smuts, David Miller, Andile Phehlukwayo, Kagiso Rabada, Dale Steyn, Anrich Nortje, Tabraiz Shamsi

Australia - Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Steven Smith, Matthew Wade, Mitchell Marsh, Alex Carey (wk), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Kane Richardson, Adam Zampa

Scorecard

 

Key Players to Consider for your Fantasy Cricket Teams

 

South Africa

Quinton de Kock – was in great form in the recent T20I series against England but had a blip in 1st T20I against Australia – expect him to come back strong in 2nd T20I

Rassie van der Dussen – is due a big score for the Proteas

Dale Steyn – why would you not pick him is my question – had a great 1st T20I against Australia top wicket take,r with Tabraiz Shamsi, both taking 2-31

 

Australia

David Warner – best white ball batsman in the world – missed out in 1st T20I and he won’t miss out in the 2nd T20I

Matthew Wade – one of the most explosive batsmen in T20 cricket – missed out in 1st T20I and he won’t miss out in the 2nd T20I

Ashton Agar 5-24 in 1st T20I against South Africa – stunning performance
