Temba Bavuma– South Africa
Temba Bavuma has decent numbers in ODI cricket. The right-hander has notched 461 runs from 12 games at a mean of 46.10 and a strike rate of 89.51. He has two half-centuries and one century to point out for his efforts.
Tabraiz Shamsi- South Africa
Tabraiz Shamsi has been outstanding for whichever team he has played for over a previous couple of months. The left-arm wrist spinner has churned out quite a few decent spells for his team. On the rear of his spells, he has also become ICC’s No.1 ranked T20I bowler. Shamsi will again be expected to deliver within the upcoming encounter.
