England vs South Africa, 3rd ODI Preview, and Probable XI

Fixture: England vs South Africa, 3rd ODI

Time/Date: 10:00 AM GMT/ 11:00 AM Local / 29 May 2017

Venue: Lord’s, London

Here we will be talking about the possible scenarios of the match that could help the fantasy players such as Dream11 users to make their Dream team better and help them win big.

Match and Pitch Condition

Weather: Rain is expected to intercept in middle hours of the match so the game is either expected to be washed out or Duckworth-Lewis will come into play.

Pitch Condition: Lord’s pitch has always been on the greener side. So, swing and seam are expected to be on offer for bowlers and given the form of these two batting sides, a score of 300 can be expected.

Team News

England:

  • Ben Stokes, Moeen Ali, and Chris Woakes have been rested for this match as a precautionary measure to keep them fit for the Champions Trophy.
  • Toby-Roland Jones, Liam Dawson, and Steven Finn have been drafted in to replace the trio.
  • So, a minimum of two changes is sure in the line-up.  Jonny Bairstow and Liam Dawson are likely to come in for Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali.
  • They might also rest out of form Jason Roy to give Sam Billings a try.
  • Also, David Willey is expected to come in for either Mark Wood or Jake Ball.
  • There might be few surprise changes as they have already won the series.

South Africa:

  • JP Duminy and Imran Tahir are likely to come in after missing the last match.
  • Morne Morkel may also get his first game of the series as this is South Africa’s last game before Champions Trophy.
  • Same goes with them too. They might make few surprise changes to try different combinations in a dead rubber.

 

Probable Playing XI: (In the Batting order)

England: Alex Hales, Jason Roy/Sam Billings, Joe Root, Eoin Morgan (c), Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler (wk), Liam Dawson/Toby Roland-Jones, Jake Ball/Steven Finn, Adil Rashid, Liam Plunkett, David Willey/Mark Wood.
