History beckons as New Zealand take England on in the final of the World Cup 2019. Both these teams have never won the biggest tournament in cricket and a new champion will emerge on Sunday. The iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground also referred to as the Home of Cricket, will host this glorious and historic game of cricket. The Kiwis and the Brits will put in their blood and sweat as they attempt to seek glory.

While this will only be the second final for New Zealand, England will be appearing in a final for the fourth time. They’d both want to heal the blemishes of the past and bring an abundance of joy and pride to their respective nations. This is one of the most anticipated encounters and an extremely competitive game of cricket is on the cards.

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

Wicketkeepers

If you go by the stats, none of the keeper’s numbers are anywhere near impressive. However, you’ve got to pick at least one as per the rules. Tom Latham has scored slightly more runs than Jos Buttler. Moreover, the left-hander has also affected more dismissals behind the stumps and comes at just 8 credits. Thus, he could be preferred.

Batsmen

With the kind of form that he is in at the moment, Jason Roy is a must in your Dream11 Fantasy team and can even be a multiplier. The English opener leads the batting charts with 372 runs and thus should be your captain. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson isn’t too far behind and you can choose him to be the vice-captain of your team. Ross Taylor and Jonny Bairstow should be the other two picks from this category keeping the stats in mind.

All-Rounders

Ben Stokes has averaged 87 with the bat in his last five outings. With the bat, he has scored the most runs in this category and thus could be picked. James Neesham, the New Zealand all-rounder, has contributed to both the departments of the game. Neesham scored 165 runs and picked up 6 wickets in just as many outings as Stokes and can be the other pick from this category.

Bowlers

Trent Boult and Lokie Ferguson are the only two bowlers who have picked up 10 wickets or more in the last five ODIs when both these team are taken into consideration. Thus, having both of them in your Dream11 Fantasy team is a necessity. You can even go was Chris Woakes who was exceptional in the semi-final. Here, you’ll have only 8 credits left to make your final pick and Liam Plunkett is the better option available.
