SA vs ZIM Dream11 match top picks
Top Wicketkeeper Pick
Quinton de Kock (72 matches, 2032 runs, SR: 134.13)
Quinton de Kock is a prolific runscorer in this format, scoring over 2000 runs at a strike-rate of 134.13. He scored a fifty in his previous T20I outing against India. Given his knack of scoring big runs at the top of the order, de Kock is a must-have in your SA vs ZIM Dream11 prediction team.
Craig Ervine (58 (54) in the previous match vs SCO)
Craig Ervine struck some form in the previous T20 World Cup match, scoring a match-winning fifty against Scotland. While Ervine’s T20I strike-rate is a touch on the lower side, he has a heap of experience to fall back on. With the southpaw looking in decent touch, he is a good addition to your SA vs ZIM Dream11 prediction team.
Top All-rounder Pick
Sikandar Raza (3 matches, 136 runs, 5 wickets)
Sikandar Raza has been a revelation in the T20 World Cup, scoring 136 runs and picking up five wickets in three matches. He has been brilliant with the bat, striking at 172.15 and using the dimensions of the ground effectively. With Raza impressing with his variations with the ball as well, he is a must-have in your SA vs ZIM Dream11 prediction team.
Top Bowler Pick
Blessing Muzarabani (3 matches, 6 wickets, Average: 15.83)
Blessing Muzarabani has stood out with the ball for Zimbabwe, picking up six wickets in three matches so far. He has averaged just 15.83 and has troubled batters with his extra pace and bounce. Given his form, Muzarabani should be a good pick for your prediction team.
