RSA vs ZIM Match & Dream 11 Prediction, Betting Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Analysis - Oct 06, 2018

With two of the three matches of the series already won by the Proteas, Zimbabwe will be looking to redeem something out of the series which has been rather dark for them. Paarl is the next and the last stop in the bilateral series between the two African nations and regardless of the previous two results, both the team will be looking to come out on top. The two teams are set to lock horns on 6th October at Boland Park, Paarl.

RSA vs ZIM Team Previews

South Africa

Although the Proteas managed to sneak in with a big win in their second match, their batsmen appeared far from settled. Batting first in the second match, South Africa didn't get off to a start they were looking for and were quickly reduced to 101-7 and were staring at a subpar total.

Quite unexpectedly, Dale Steyn and Andile Phehklukwayo stitched together a brilliant partnership with the latter departing after taking the team's total to 176 for 8. The final two pairs could not contribute much with South Africa folding for 198. Dale Steyn was the last man to be dismissed.

Bowlers needed to work hard so as to defend such a low total and they didn't disappoint. They bettered their first ODI's performance as they caused havoc among the Zimbabweans. Imran Tahir was the chief destructor as he picked six wickets for just 24 runs. Steyn returned with the figures of 19 for 2 in his six overs and was adjudged man of the match for his all-around performance.

While Zimbabwe did exceedingly well to keep Proteas from flying away with the bat, they were listless with the bat in the hand. The returnees to the squad once again fail to do anything remarkable as Zimbabwe folded for just 78 runs.

Earlier with the ball, they were exceptional upfront with Tendai Chatara and Kyle Jarvis causing a lot of damage. Although Dale Steyn spoiled their bowlers' figures towards the end of South African innings, they were still pretty much respectable. Tendai Chatara was the pick of their bowlers as he picked up three wickets for 42. Kyle Jarvis, Donald Tiripano, and Brandon Mavuta finished with two wickets each.

Overall, Zimbabweans have shown good fight in the series, but haven't been able to build on the moments of brilliance. On both occasions, their batsmen haven't really been responsible enough and folded without troubling the scorers. Their bowling has troubled the hosts and if their batting can pick up, they could really make the hosts work hard.

RSA vs ZIM Toss Prediction

Pitches have been largely conducive for bowling in the first two games. There is likely to be some assistance for the bowlers at the beginning of the innings which might tempt the captain winning the toss to bowl first.

Pitch and Conditions

As a result of fresh pitches being laid out, there was a lot of assistance for the bowlers in the first two games. However, Paarl is expected to be a better surface to bat on with even pace and nice carry. The team batting first should be looking to score at least 250.

RSA vs ZIM Betting Tips

While the series has largely been one-sided as far as the scorecard is concerned, the visitors have fought hard in both the occasions. Their bowlers have been brilliant and had the Proteas on the match in the second ODI. However, they lack the experience to build an innings and do not appear to be a well-coordinated batting unit. South Africa, on the other hand, have had experience of playing in such conditions and the experience of Duminy, Elgar, and Markram will help them. Therefore, we think the Proteas are more likely to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
