Captain/Vice-Captain choice for Fantasy Team

Kagiso Rabada- Kagiso Rabada is a standout amongst other quick bowlers in international cricket. He is one of only a handful couple of bowlers to have exceeded expectations in every one of the three formats. He is the pioneer of the South African bowling assault and would be frantic to perform well after a grim 2019 World Cup.

Rohit Sharma- The right-handed opener has been key to India’s success in the limited-overs formats. The attacking nature of his play has also earned him the reputation of being the ‘Hitman’ of cricket.

Virat Kohli- Virat Kohli is a genius of cricket and has a list of records in his possession. At present, he is apparently extraordinary compared to other batsmen on the planet and presents a batting ability at whatever point he gets a chance. Kohli might want to begin the home season with a blast. A series win against South Africa will absolutely support the group’s certainty.

Apne11 Prediction

India and South Africa are in the questioning mode to some extent yet once the activity gets going. They will fight it out for matchless quality here. South Africa have a lot of ability in their squad, however, it might set aside them some effort to conform to conditions. India’s madly solid batting line-up gives them the edge here.
