An exciting match-up is coming up on Thursday in the World Cup. Five-time champions Australia will be up against two-time champions Windies in the upcoming encounter of the tournament. A win in their respective previous match was a cakewalk for both these sides. Australia and Windies won by a 7-wicket margin against Afghanistan and Pakistan respectively.

Since both these games ended up being one-sided, the fans would be hoping for a cracking contest when these two teams take the field in Nottingham. With the players from either side in great form, they will look to push hard for a victory. Meanwhile, for those of you picking your Dream11 Fantasy teams, zeroing on your final eleven could be difficult with most of the players taking a lot of credits. Thus, the stats of the players taking part in the match might make things easier for you.

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

Wicketkeepers:

Alex Carey, Shai Hope and Nicholas Pooran are the three options you’ve got in the wicket-keeper’s category. If you consider the stats in the last five ODI outings, Shai Hope is the best option you’ve got. He has been one of the most consistent performers for the Windies for some time now and will be worth having in your team even though he consumes 9.5 credits.

 

Batsmen:

The numbers of Chris Gayle and Aaron Finch in the last five ODI games have been unbelievable. While the former has mustered 474 runs, the Australia skipper has scored 401 runs. Thus, they are both a must in your team and should also be the captain and vice-captain respectively. Usman Khawaja, who scored 263 runs, is the other option you can consider.

There are two options you can consider before you make David Warner as your fourth pick. You can only choose one between him and Andre Russell. Both these players are equally good and the stats don’t differentiate much. Given the consistent run he’s had in recent times, we have gone ahead with the left-hander in this eleven.

All-Rounders:

Glenn Maxwell should be your best pick with the bat in terms of the number of runs he has scored. He mustered 262 runs and also picked up two wickets. Thus, he should in your Dream11 Fantasy team. From the Windies team, Jason Holder and Carlos Brathwaite, who picked up 5 wickets each, could be the other two picks in your fantasy side.

Bowlers:

With 16 wickets in his last 5 outings, Pat Cummins is an automatic pick in the team. Oshane Thomas is not far behind and takes only 8.5 credits. This team will be rounder by Adam Zampa who is doing well for Australia and could test the Windies middle order batsmen with his variations.
