West Indian openers Chris Gayle and Shai Hope get the nod to start upfront in this Dream11 team.

Both the players are in form and can give WI a strong start.

Wicket-keeper batsman Hope scored a fifty in the previous game.

Faf du Plessis (vice-captain) comes in next to add steel.

The experienced star is joined by Nicholas Pooran and Rassie van der Dussen.

All-rounders

Jason Holder gets the nod as the skipper of this side.

He has been terrific so far.

Bowling

Rabada, Tahir headline the bowling quartet

Rabada, Tahir headline the bowling quartet

Imran Tahir is the lone main spinner of this unit.

He will look to bring his experience into play and try to get wickets in the middle overs.

Sheldon Cottrell has done well so far and that looks promising for WI.

The promising cricketer has what it takes to shine.

Kagiso Rabada is the leader of this pack.

He has bowled his heart out.

Rationale behind the Dream11 team

The bowling looks classy and filled with options. Notably, the all-rounders are the trump card. All three are crucial bowlers for their side and can provide the spark with the bat as well. The batting has what it takes to score runs.

Predictions

Predicted starting XI and possible winners

Predicted South Africa starting XI: De Kock (wicket-keeper), Amla, Faf (captain), Dussen, Miller, Duminy, Phehlukwayo, Morris, Rabada, Ngidi and Tahir.

Predicted West Indies starting XI: Gayle, Hope (wicket-keeper), Lewis, Pooran, Hetmyer, Holder (captain), Russell, Nurse, Brathwaite, Thomas and Cottrell.

It's going to be an enticing battle on the cards.

West Indies could hurt the Proteas, whose batting in particular looks weak.
