There is still some time left for the highly anticipated Ashes battle. But before that, Australia will lock horns with England in an all-important World Cup 2019 clash. The smallest of mistakes could cost you big time and winners are the grinners in this knockout game. Both the teams would look to get one step closer to the title by emerging triumphant in this game.

While Australia seemed to be the better team in the league stages, England is not far behind and has got the home advantage. The Brits would like to avenge for the 64-run loss in the encounter earlier in the tournament. They’ve clearly got the momentum on their side while Australia will look to bounce back hard from the loss against South Africa. This, without a doubt, is going to be a mouth-watering contest.

Here we bring to you the Dream11 Fantasy team based on the stats of the players:

Wicketkeepers

At only 8.5 credits, Alex Carey is an excellent pick for your Dream11 Fantasy team. The Australian wicket-keeper batsman has got the numbers to back him and has added some crucial runs for his team batting down the order. He has averaged nearly 70 in his last five outings and even got to a half-century twice. His strike rate is an added advantage and is the best option in the available lot.

Batsmen

After his century in the last game, David Warner now leads the batting chart in terms of the runs scored. The Aussie opener scored 383 runs and thus should be your captain going by the stats. Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow are not far behind. Since he scored a few extra runs, Roy can be picked as the vice-captain. Aaron Finch, who is the only other batsman to have scored in excess of 300 runs, can be the fourth pick from this category.

All Rounders

Ben Stokes, as the figures suggest, is the best all-rounder option that you’ve got. He scored 263 runs but haven’t got to bowl a great deal. Yet, he has got the wicket-taking ability and should be a great addition to your Dream11 Fantasy team based on the stats. It is a tough choice between Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis. The former has only contributed with the bat while the latter has done a fair job in both the departments. But given the impact that he can create once he gets in, Maxwell should be the preferred option.

Bowlers

With the kind of form that he’s been in, Mitchell Starc is a no-brainer in your team. The left-arm pacer has picked up 17 wickets in the last five ODI matches. Jason Behrendorff is the only other bowler who has accounted for more than 10 wickets in just as many outings. Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood can be your picks from the England team. Jofra Archer is not a bad option either instead of Plunkett and it is your personal choice here.
