The Australia cricket team is on a roll with four wins out of five games they have played in the World Cup 2019 so far. Except for an off-day in the game against India, the team has brought clinical performances on all the other occasions and registered big wins. In their next battle, the Kangaroos will be up against Bangladesh who have had an inspirational campaign so far.

After two consecutive losses, the Asian team bounced back strong in their last match against Windies. They chased a target of 322 down in only 41.3 overs. Thus, they are expected to put up a tough fight in the upcoming match. Due to the credit limitations, picking the Dream11 Fantasy team could get quite difficult. Thus, stats could help you in such a scenario.

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

Wicket-keepers

With the numbers of Alex Carey not as good, you’ve got to pick between Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das. The veteran cricketer has only scored 5 runs more than Das in the last five ODI games that they’ve played. Since Mushfiqur takes up 1.5 credits more than Liton, he might not be as good an option considering that there are players with better numbers available. Thus, the 24-year-old can be the sole wicket-keeping option in your team.

Batsmen

David Warner, Aaron Finch and Steve Smith have been the best batsmen for Australia. But they take up 30.5 credits together. While this is a little too high, you’ll have to make adjustments elsewhere and have this troika in your team at all costs. Since many might go with Finch, you can venture to select David Warner as the captain of your side. From Bangladesh, Soumya Sarkar has got the best numbers and comes at only 8.5 credits. Thus, you should have him in the team.

All-Rounders

Having Shakib Al Hasan in the team is a no-brainer after watching the way he’s gone thus far. He also comes at 10 credits but is a must-have. Since you’ve picked the legendary all-rounder at such high credits, you’ll have to forgo both Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis. Mosaddek Hossain’s numbers with the bat are better than those of Maxwell and Stoinis. He has also picked up two wickets and isn’t that bad a choice either. The best part is that you get him just at 8 credits.

Bowlers

Since there are a few credits left, you have got the luxury of picking both Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins who have the most number of wickets than anyone else. Kane Richardson also fared well and accounted for 10 wickets in the last five games and takes up only 8 credits. While he can be the third pick from this category, you can round this eleven up by selecting Mohammad Saifuddin who picked up 9 wickets in just as many games.
