Two teams, which boast of some of the biggest strikers of the cricket ball, will be facing each other in the next game of the World Cup 2019. As England will play hosts to the Windies in the next game, it is expected to be a run-scoring feast. The Brits are entering into this game after a massive 106-run win against Bangladesh. Thus, they will be a confident unit.

They will look to maintain the winning momentum and get another win under their belt. On the other hand, the last match of the Windies was washed out due to rain. Before that, they faced Australia and lost that game by a mere 15 runs. With just three points to their tally after the end of the first three matches, the Caribbean team will be desperate for a win. This should definitely be an evenly fought out contest as long as there isn’t a rain interruption. Since picking a Dream11 Fantasy team might be slightly tough, the statistics of the players in the last five ODIs will help.

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

Wicket-keepers

There are plenty of wicket-keeping options available for this game. All of them also demand quite a lot of credits. Based upon the statistics in the last few games, you’d want to select the likes of Shai Hope, Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow. While the average and strike rate of Nicholas Pooran is good, he hasn’t scored as many runs. Thus, you wouldn’t want to pick him in the team.

Batsmen

Amongst the batsmen as well, there are some tough choices to make. While the numbers of Joe Root and Eoin Morgan are good, they demand a lot of credits. Since he has scored 360 runs in the last five ODIs at a terrific strike rate, Chris Gayle is a must in your Dream11 Fantasy team and can also be the captain. Jason Roy isn’t a bad pick either and has got extremely good numbers in the last few games. He scored 405 runs at an average of 81 and thus can be selected as the vice-captain. At 8.5 credits, Shimron Hetmyer should be a great pick in the team as he balances things out well.

All Rounders

There are slight concerns over the fitness of Andre Russell. While he is expected to be in the playing eleven, you wouldn’t want to risk 9.5 credits for him. Instead, Ben Stokes, who scored 200 runs and accounted for five wickets can be picked. From the Windies team, you can go for Jason Holder who takes 0.5 credits lesser than Russell. Moreover, the Windies skipper’s numbers are just as good as those of Russell. Thus, he will be a valuable pick in your team.

Bowlers

In the previous five outings, Oshane Thomas picked up 13 wickets and has performed on a very consistent basis. He should be the first-choice pick in this category. Both Chris Woakes and Mark Wood have picked up 12 wickets each in the last five games. But since there is uncertainty about Woakes’ place in the eleven, you can go ahead with Wood. The other pick you can go ahead with is Jofra Archer who has accounted for 8 wickets.
