England vs South Africa 1st T20I Dream11 Fantasy Predictions, Lineups, and more

On Wednesday, July 27, England will face South Africa in the first of three Twenty20 Internationals. The Jos Buttler-led squad will be looking to put their recent T20 series setback to India behind them and turn their fortunes around with a victory.

Buttler and company will be preoccupied with their batting troubles. The Three Lions will do all they can to go out there and make some rapid runs. The Skipper will be under pressure to lead from the front and get his side off to a positive start.

In the absence of regular captain Temba Bavuma, South Africa will be captained by David Miller. The team will be trying to build on their strong showing in the first ODI and go the extra mile to win the game. Quinton de Kock, who missed out on a century by a whisker in the last game, might be the guy to watch.

The rain had hampered both South Africa’s last T20I against India in June and the final of three ODIs against England. The Proteas, who were even in both competitions when the final was rained off, will be trying to win the T20 series for the first time.

The addition of Kagiso Rabada to the team will help them. Rilee Rossouw and Gerald Coetzee may also play in the opening match against England.

England vs South Africa 1st T20I – Dream11 Fantasy Top Picks

Rassie van Der-Dussen

With 160 runs in three innings, the in-form hitter led the ODI series in run-scoring. He has nearly 1000 T20I runs to his name and will be looking to make an early impression in the T20 series and give his team a reason to celebrate.

Quinton de Kock

Quinton found his form in the last ODI, remaining unbeaten on 92 off 76 balls. In the shortest format, he has 1863 runs to his name and is one of the most dependable opening batters in the world today. He has immense experience playing this format and is highly adaptable to changing conditions, making him a dangerous opponent to bowl to.

Liam Livingstone

The excellent all-arounder has consistently contributed in both aspects. He has 342 runs and 12 wickets in 20 T20Is. He has had an amazing year of cricket and we expect him to continue his great form in the T20 series and hopefully create the impact his team needs, to beat the Proteas.

Jonny Bairstow

Bairstow has been outstanding in recent international series. He scored 91 runs in three One-Day Internationals. He has 1190 runs in 63 Twenty20 Internationals.
