New Zealand Legends are set to make their debut in the Road Safety World Series T20. They are one of the more fancied teams in the competition with the likes of Ross Taylor and Hamish Bennett in the squad. However, they come across an equally good South African Legends side who lost their first game of the tournament. Although they will start as the underdogs, South Africa Legends are capable of taking the attack to the Kiwis. With valuable points up for grabs, a cracking game beckons in Kanpur.

NZ-L vs SA-L Dream11 match top picks, Road Safety World Series T20
Top Wicketkeeper Pick
Morne van Wyk (26 off 24 vs India Legends in the previous match)
Morne van Wyk got off to a start in the previous game, scoring a 24-ball 26. He has some Road Safety League experience, having also played in the previous edition. He was the highest run-scorer for South Africa in 2020-21 with 228 runs in six matches.
Top Batter Pick
Jonty Rhodes (38 off 27 vs India Legends in the previous match)
Jonty Rhodes was South Africa's best batter in the previous match, scoring 38 runs against a good Indian bowling attack. He is still capable of clearing the boundary at will. Given his form, he should be a top pick for your NZ-L vs SA-L Dream11 fantasy team.
Top All-rounder Pick
Anton Devcich (4 T20I matches, 111 runs, 2 wickets)
Anton Devcich is an experienced T20 player with a career average of 25.08 with the bat. Given his all-round skills, he is a must-have in your NZ-L vs SA-L Dream11 fantasy team.
Top Bowler Pick
Johan van der Wath (2/28 vs India Legends in the previous match)
Johan van der Wath showed his skill and experience in the previous game, picking up two wickets in three overs against India. He was part of the squad in the previous editions as well and added value with the bat. Given his form and skill-set, he is one to watch out for in this game.
NZ-L vs SA-L match captain and vice-captain choices
Ross Taylor only recently retired from the game and is possibly still in good shape going into the tournament. He is a brilliant batter capable of scoring quick runs at will. Given the conditions on offer, Taylor could be a good captaincy option for your NZ-L vs SA-L Dream11 fantasy team.
Johan Botha is another player who has been active in recent times, even playing in the BBL a couple of seasons back. Although he did not have the best of outings against India, Botha can hold his own with bat and ball, making him a top choice as captain or vice-captain.
