Bangladesh will host Pakistan in a 3 match T20I series which will kick start from the 19th of November. Bangladesh had a terrible outing in the T20 World Cup 2021, where they lost all their matches in the Super 12 stage. Mushfiqur Rahim has been rested, while Liton Das and Sowmya Sarkar are dropped for this series. Tamim Iqbal is still nursing an injury and won’t be available for selection.

Pakistan, on other hand, had a heartbreak in the semi-final clash against Australia in the recently concluded T20 World Cup, as they lost the match by 5 wickets. It’s now time for them to move on and start preparing themselves for the next year’s T20 World Cup, which is to be played in Australia. They have already announced a 12-man squad for this clash.

Pitch Report:

The wicket is on the slower side where the spinners will get maximum assistance from the surface. The batters must toil hard to put runs on the board. Batting first is a good option here

Top Picks for BAN vs PAK Dream11 Match:

Top Picks ­Batters

Mahmudullah is an experienced campaigner. He will be under immense pressure and must perform in this series to retain his captaincy. Mahmudullah is just shy of 60 runs from the milestone of 2000 runs in the T20Is.

Babar Azam emerged as the leading run-scorer in the recently concluded T20 World Cup. The 27-year-old Pakistani skipper has mustered 303 runs in 6 matches at an average of 60.6, with the help of 4 half-centuries.

Top Picks ­All-Rounders

Mahedi Hasan is a decent budget pick for your fantasy teams, especially in home conditions. He has scalped 23 wickets and has also scored 173 runs in his T20I career.

Shadab Khan was sensational with the ball for Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2021. He used his variations quite well and got perfect rewards for his skills. He picked up 9 wickets in 6 matches, with the best figures of 4/26.

Top Picks ­Bowlers

Mustafizur Rahman is good at taking the pace off the ball and knows exactly what length to bowl according to the situation. He will be leading the attack for Bangladesh and a must-pick player for your fantasy teams.

Haris Rauf uses his shoulder to the maximum extent to generate more pace and has got excellent change-ups as well. He has scalped 36 wickets in his T20I career at an economy of 8.57, with the best figures of 4 for 22.

Top Picks ­Wicketkeepers

Mohammad Rizwan has scored runs across all parts of the world over the last 16-18 months for Pakistan. It will be interesting how he adapts to the typical Bangladeshi slow surfaces.

BAN vs PAK Must Picks for Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Player Career T20I Stats
Babar Azam 2507 runs
Mohammad Rizwan 1346 runs
Shadab Khan 67 wickets and 226 runs
Mahmudullah 1940 runs and 33 wickets

BAN vs PAK Risky Captaincy Choices:

Shoaib Malik still has plenty of cricket left in him. He is a good player of spin and will be really handy on the spin-friendly surfaces of Bangladesh. He is a risky captaincy pick for your fantasy teams.

This series will come as a shot at redemption for Hasan Ali. His records in T20I cricket is impressive, having picked up 57 wickets in 47 matches.

Player you should avoid:

Nurul Hasan averages only 12.12 with the bat in the T20Is. It’s better to avoid him while making your fantasy teams.
