IND W vs SA W, 4th T20I: Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips & Playing XI Updates for Today's Cricket Match - October 1st, 2019
The fourth T20 between the Indian and the South African Women is set to take place on Tuesday, 1 October. With only one game being completed so far in the series, it is fair to say that rain has had the last laugh.
In the first game, Deepti Sharma and Harmanpreet Kaur were on fire as they overcame Mignon du Preez's counterattacking knock to seal a win. Both teams will look to get a crucial win on Tuesday as they try to fill the gaps in their sides in the build up to the all-important ICC T20 World Cup next year in Australia. Here are a few tips to help you pick your Dream11 team.
Squads to choose from:
Harmanpreet Kaur (C), Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Deepti Sharma, Taniya Bhatia, Poonam Yadav, Shikha Pandey, Arundhati Reddy, Pooja Vastrakar, Radha Yadav, Veda Krishnamurthy, Harleen Deol, Anuja Patil, Shafali Verma, Mansi Joshi
South Africa Women:
Sune Luus (C), Anneke Bosch, Tasmin Brits, Nadine de Klerk, Shabnim Ismail, Sinalo Jafta, Ayabonga Khaka, Lara Goodall, Lizelle Lee, Nonkululeko Mlaba, Tumi Sekhukhune, Nondumiso Shangase, Mignon du Preez, Laura Wolvaardt
Playing XI Updates:
India should persist with the same set of players for this game as well. Pooja Vastrakar, though, had a bad game in the first T20 and could be dropped for Arundhati Reddy. Star batters Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues are two of the best in the business and will be crucial to India's fortunes alongside captain, Harmanpreet Kaur.
India will once again depend on their spin trio of Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav and Deepti Sharma, who picked seven wickets between them in the first game.
Possible XI: Shafali, Mandhana, Rodrigues, Kaur(C), Veda, Taniya(WK), Deepti, Shikha, Poonam, Radha and Arundhati/Pooja.
South Africa Women:
Sune Luus wouldn't be making any changes although better performances are expected from her and the rest of the batting unit. Apart from Mignon du Preez, none of the players were able to bide their time in the middle and support her. Their bowling unit did well with Shabnim Ismail picking three wickets for them
Possible XI: Brits, Lee (WK), Wolvaardt, Nadine, du Preez, Luus (C), Khaka, Ismail, Mlaba, Nondumiso Shangase and Tumi Sekhukhune

Once again, rain is expected to play its part in the game with thunderstorms predicted on Tuesday. It is highly likely that this match would also be washed out. If a shortened match does happen, pacers will get some help from the conditions although the batters will relish batting with the ball being difficult to grip for the spinners.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Lizelle Lee is the preferred choice with the burly wicket-keeper capable of destroying attacks right from the start. Although Taniya Bhatia did score some runs in the first T20-I, her batting position is a major put off.
Batters: Smriti Mandhana and Mignon du Preez are must-haves in the side with their experience playing in different leagues coming in handy. While one of Jemimah Rodrigues or Harmanpreet Kaur will also fit the bill, Laura Wolvaardt's ability to tackle spin proficiently holds her in good stead. If an extra batter is required, look no further than Shafali Verma.
Allrounders: While Deepti Sharma is a must-have for this game, the likes of Sune Luus and Nadine de Klerk are also viable options with their ability to score quick runs and pick a wicket or two.
Bowlers: Two of Shikha Pandey, Radha Yadav and Poonam Yadav are a must with all of them picking two wickets each in the previous game. While Shabnim Ismail's pace is also a decent option to have in the fantasy side, one of Khaka or Sekhukhune should suffice in rounding off the fantasy team.
Captain: Smriti Mandhana is an obvious choice for captaincy regardless of the format and pitch. But given the nature of the pitch, the likes of Sune Luus and Deepti Sharma should also be worthwhile options on Tuesday for the mantle of captain or vice-captain.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Lizelle Lee, Smriti Mandhana, Shafali Varma, Tazman Brits, Laura Wolvaardt, Deepti Sharma, Sune Luus, Shabnim Ismail, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav and Nadine de Klerk. Captain: Smriti Mandhana, Vice-Captain: Deepti Sharma
Fantasy Suggestion #2: Lizelle Lee, Smriti Mandhana, Jemimah Rodrigues, Tazman Brits, Mignon du Preez, Deepti Sharma, Sune Luus, Shabnim Ismail, Poonam Yadav, Radha Yadav and N Shangese. Captain: Smriti Mandhana, Vice-Captain: Sune Luus
