Hosts England have put themselves into such a situation that they will have to win their remaining two games to seal a knockout place without depending on the other results. However, the Brits will encounter India in the upcoming game – a side which is yet to be beaten in the tournament. While an exciting contest in on the cards, the pressure will be on the home team as they can’t afford a loss.

On the other hand, Team India will eye for another win as they’d want to seal their semi-final place. Facing the Indian spinners well will play a decisive role and England’s fortunes will depend on how they deal against them. While picking the Dream11 Fantasy team based on stats, there will have to be a few slight exceptions made to fit in some of the top performers into the side.

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

Wicketkeepers

Keeping various permutations and combinations in mind, it’d be ideal to pick one wicket keeper. In the available options, Jonny Bairstow has scored the most number of runs. He scored two half-centuries and even took 7 catches. Since he opens the innings, there is an advantage as he will get to face more balls if he can capitalise on the opportunity.

Batsmen

Jason Roy is highly likely to be back for the upcoming match and was in the terrific form before he got injured. He scored 405 runs in his last five ODI outings which included two centuries and two half-centuries. Thus, he can be the captain of your side. Both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli scored over 300 runs in as many games and the former can be picked as your vice-captain. Joe Root, who mustered 274 runs, should be there in your side. Since he comes at just 8 credits, you should pick him as the other four players take up 40 credits combined.

All Rounders

Since he takes 9.5 credits, Ben Stokes is tough to be picked into this Dream11 Fantasy side. Instead, you can pick Hardik Pandya who has been just as good as his English counterpart in both the departments of the game. You’ve got to pick Moeen Ali to adjust the credits. He comes at only 8 credits and has picked 5 wickets in his last five games. While he hasn’t scored as many runs with the bat, he is capable of doing it and is worth a pick.

Bowlers

Jofra Archer, with 13 wickets, is leading the bowling charts and must be in your eleven at all costs. With two back-to-back four-wicket hauls, Mohammed Shami has looked unstoppable in the tournament and is a great pick. Mark Wood can be your final pick and he has also picked the same number of wickets as Shami in his last five ODI outings.
