After taking unbeatable lead of 2-0 in 3-match ODI series against Zimbabwe, South Africa will take on Zimbabwe aiming to clean sweep the series. However, the hosts will hope their top order fire much better as batting has been their main concern for a while. Their bowling is boosted by some big names like Dale Steyn, who shined in the last game, and Kagiso Rabada who is doing pretty well. The spin department is led by Imran Tahir who took 6 wickets in the last game to trouble the visitors.
The visitors did impress during the 2nd ODI by reducing the hosts for merely 198. However, later failed to get momentum and it is their batting which disappointed them badly. Despite having big names like Craig Ervine and Brendan Taylor, the batting unit needs to go under training. Here are the probable dream XI for South Africa and Zimbabwe:
FPJ’s dream XI prediction: JP Duminy ©, Heinrich Klaasen, Dean Elgar, Aiden Markram, Peter Moor, Andile Phehlukwayo, Brandon Mavuta, Imran Tahir, Dale Steyn, Tendai Chatara, Donald Tiripano.
