Both West Indies and Bangladesh will look to get their stumbling campaign back on track when they lock horns with each other in the match number 22 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at the County Ground in Taunton on Monday. Both teams have three points each with one win, two defeats and a washout that resulted in splitting the points. While the two teams will fight to keep their semi-finals hope alive, we are spending a lot of time going through the individual states of players, pitch report and more just to get you the right combination for your Dream 11 fantasy league contest that can make you win lakhs.
For today’s game, we can expect good scores given the form of both teams unless one of them collapses. With Chrish Gayle and Shai Hope on top of the order and then Nicholas Pooran in the middle and Jason Holder and Andre Russel in the lower, West Indians are batting monsters on their day. Bangladesh, on the other hand, is also playing good cricket and their batsman except opener Tamim Iqbal are chipping in time to time to score runs for the team. Shakib being their star performer is a must to include in your Dream 11 fantasy league team.
Players to choose from
Bangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Liton Das, Sabbir Rahman, Abu Jayed
West Indies: Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope(w), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder(c), Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Shannon Gabriel, Ashley Nurse, Darren Bravo, Fabian Allen, Kemar Roach
West Indies vs Bangladesh Dream 11 team combination, captain and vice-captain pick
Wicket-keepers: Shai Hope (Captain), Mushfiqur Rahim
Shai Hope averages 94.57 against Bangladesh in 9 ODIs with 3 tons and 6 fifties while Rahim is one of Bangladesh’s most inform players.
Batsman: Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Soumya Sarkar (vice captain), Shakib Al Hasan
Gayle storm against Bangladeshi bowling attack is always likely and Pooran has been in outstanding form for quite some time. Soumya Sarkar is in good touch and he probably can survive the bouncers of West Indies bowlers. Why Shakib Al Hasan? You can be serious while asking this question.
All-rounder: Jason Holder
If you wonder why we did not pick Andre Russel, let me tell you he is suffering from a knee injury and unlikely to play. Even if he plays, he won’t bowl too much and picking an unfit player is never clever. Holder picks up wickets, scores runs. Obvious choice.
Bowlers: Oshane Thomas, Mashrafe Mortaza, Sheldon Cottrell
Mustafizur Rahman is Bangladesh’ leading bowler and West Indies players will look to play him cautiously. Mortaza, on the other hand, always picks up wicket with his steady line and length and batsmen like to take risk against him. Oshane Thomas and Cottrell are going to be crucial, don’t exclude them.
