Bangladesh, who registered a hard-fought victory against South Africa, will be facing New Zealand in their next encounter. The Kiwis absolutely thumped Sri Lanka in their maiden encounter registering a 10-wicket win. Looking at the way they performed in their respectively previous games, no team can be written off at this stage.
Yet again, Bangladesh will have to fight hard for a victory. Their batsmen will be tested by the New Zealand pace battery. At the same time, the Kiwis will have to be on their feet at all times. Even a slight bit of complacency could land them with a similar fate the Proteas had to encounter a few days ago.
Here we bring you the Dream11 Fantasy team based on the stats of the players:
There are four wicket-keeping options available for this game. Bangladesh wicket-keeper Mushfiqur Rahim scored 244 runs in the last five games. He takes 9.5 credits but is worth having in your team. Tom Latham can also be selected from this category. At 8.5 credits, he should be a great pick in your team. He scored 192 runs in the last five outings.
Soumya Sarkar and Mohammad Mithun both have got great stats with the bat from the Bangladesh team. Moreover, they only take 8.5 credits each which will give you the flexibility to choose some other big players. New Zealand’s best performer in the last few games is Ross Taylor. He accrued 173 runs at an average of 86.50 and a strike rate of 96. The vice-captain of your team can be Martin Guptill who has been the best of the lot. The New Zealand opener mustered 351 runs in the last five games at a mind-boggling average of 117.
Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan should be the captain of your team. He bats at number three and is an invaluable asset with the ball as well. The veteran cricketer scored 215 and picked up 5 wickets in the last five matches and should be a terrific addition to your Dream11 Fantasy team. The other all-rounder you can pick is Mohammad Saifuddin who has got 7 wickets in the previous five matches and also scored 44 runs.
Mustafizur Rahman should be the first pick in the bowler’s category if you go by the stats. The left-arm pacer picked up 11 wickets in his previous five games at a strike rate of 24. The other two picks to complete your Dream11 Fantasy team are Trent Boult and Matt Henry. These two bowlers have picked up 10 wickets each in the same number of outings as Mustafizur.
