Is your Dream11 fantasy team all set for the third ODI between (SA vs ENG 1st ODI)?

The England tour of South Africa has its 1st ODI on 4th December (Friday) as these both the teams will face each other at Newlands, Cape Town. England would like to push their T20I dominance into the ODI series.

South Africa, on the other side, would try to win when it matters more, to get off the mark in the ODI Super League.

Since the credits of these star players are too high, you cannot include all of them in your fantasy team.

SA vs ENG 1st ODI: 3 Players You Can Exclude From Your Dream11 Fantasy Team, England tour of South Africa 2020

1) Heinrich Klaasen

Heinrich Klaasen is heading into the tour after a horrible T20I series with just 27 runs in 2 matches. As a result, he was dropped from the third match and isn’t assured of making the team. It would be tough for Klaasen to find form after the disastrous start to the tour. He wasn’t a part of the team even when they played England in February. For a player unsure of his position, it is never safe to pick him in your fantasy team.

2) Sam Billings

Sam Billings is another player who did not feature in England-South Africa series in February. His overall ODI stats of 586 runs at an average of 36.62 isn’t impressive either. He wasn’t a part of the T20I series and played only one match in England’s previous T20I series out for 8 runs. It would be tough to catch form in an away tour without much experience in the conditions. All these make Sam Billings tough to enter any Dream11 team.

3) Liam Livingstone

Liam Livingstone, yet to make his ODI debut, has a List-A average of just 40.98. He played only two international matches, both of them were back in 2017. He didn’t perform well in those matches too, with scores of 16 and 0 against South Africa, the same opponent he will be facing. After being clean bowled for a duck, he wasn’t a part of the international playing XI for quite a long time over three years now. Since it is yet to have any kind of impact at the international XI, he should not be picked in your Dream11 team.
