India A vs South Africa A, 4th ODI
4th September 2019, 9:00 PM IST
Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram
As seen throughout the series, Trivandrum has put out good batting tracks with a hint of turn for the spinners. The only black mark on the venue would be the weather with the forecast showing persistent rains throughout the whole day. This renders the chance of a match taking place being bleak on Wednesday.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Heinrich Klassen is in good form for the Proteas with 133 runs in three games. He is a viable candidate to fill in as the wicket-keeper in the fantasy side while Sanju Samson is a good alternative as well.
Batsmen: Shubman Gill was rested for the third ODI and will looking to make amends on Wednesday. Along with Reeza Hendricks, Gill is a must-have in the fantasy team. While captain, Shreyas Iyer is also good option to have in the side, the likes of Temba Bavuma, Janneman Malan and Shikhar Dhawan could be suffice in rounding off the batting department.
Allrounders: Shivam Dube has impressed for India A in both the ODI and Test format over the last few weeks. He is another must-have player in the side while George Linde's big hitting abilities are also worth being picked. If included in playing XI, Sundar could also earn some fantasy points with his off spin.
Bowlers: Shardul Thakur and Lutho Sipamla should do well with the new ball come Wednesday while Bjorn Fortuin's economical spin bowling is also one to watch out for. Although Tushar Deshpande has the ability to extract extra bounce from the surface, Rahul Chahar is the preferred candidate to round off the fantasy team.
Captain: Shubman Gill is the preferred option with the KKR batsman expected to come good on Wednesday. He is one of the most consistent performers for India A over the last year or so and should score some runs while the South African duo of Reeza Hendricks and Temba Bavuma are good options for captaincy as well on a good batting track.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Heinrich Klassen, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Reeza Hendricks, Temba Bavuma, George Linde, Shivam Dube, Lutho Sipamla, Shardul Thakur, Rahul Chahar and Bjorn Fortuin. Captain: Shubman Gill, Vice-Captain: Temba Bavuma
