New Delhi: Both West Indies and Bangladesh will look to get their stumbling campaign back on track when they lock horns with each other in the match number 22 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at the County Ground in Taunton on Monday. Both teams have three points each with one win, two defeats and a washout that resulted in splitting the points. While the two teams will fight to keep their semi-finals hope alive, we are spending a lot of time going through the individual states of players, pitch report and more just to get you the right combination for your Dream 11 fantasy league contest that can make you win lakhs.For today’s game, we can expect good scores given the form of both teams unless one of them collapses. With Chrish Gayle and Shai Hope on top of the order and then Nicholas Pooran in the middle and Jason Holder and Andre Russel in the lower, West Indians are batting monsters on their day. Bangladesh, on the other hand, is also playing good cricket and their batsman except opener Tamim Iqbal are chipping in time to time to score runs for the team. Shakib being their star performer is a must to include in your Dream 11 fantasy league team.Players to choose fromBangladesh: Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Mosaddek Hossain, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mehidy Hasan, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Mustafizur Rahman, Rubel Hossain, Liton Das, Sabbir Rahman, Abu JayedWest Indies: Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope(w), Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder(c), Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Shannon Gabriel, Ashley Nurse, Darren Bravo, Fabian Allen, Kemar RoachWest Indies vs Bangladesh Dream 11 team combination, captain and vice-captain pickWicket-keepers: Shai Hope (Captain), Mushfiqur RahimShai Hope averages 94.57 against Bangladesh in 9 ODIs with 3 tons and 6 fifties while Rahim is one of Bangladesh’s most inform players.Batsman: Chris Gayle, Nicholas Pooran, Soumya Sarkar (vice captain), Shakib Al HasanGayle storm against Bangladeshi bowling attack is always likely and Pooran has been in outstanding form for quite some time. Soumya Sarkar is in good touch and he probably can survive the bouncers of West Indies bowlers. Why Shakib Al Hasan? You can be serious while asking this question.All-rounder: Jason HolderIf you wonder why we did not pick Andre Russel, let me tell you he is suffering from a knee injury and unlikely to play. Even if he plays, he won’t bowl too much and picking an unfit player is never clever. Holder picks up wickets, scores runs. Obvious choice.Bowlers: Oshane Thomas, Mashrafe Mortaza, Sheldon CottrellMustafizur Rahman is Bangladesh’ leading bowler and West Indies players will look to play him cautiously. Mortaza, on the other hand, always picks up wicket with his steady line and length and batsmen like to take risk against him. Oshane Thomas and Cottrell are going to be crucial, don’t exclude them.
Deputy Communications Director for Kumasi Asante Kotoko, Solomon Ofusu Ware, has described the pre match preparations of the technical as perfect ahead of their league tie against Dreams FC at Dawu.The Porcupines have won two games in a row and Ofosu Ware is giving credit to the technical team to how they’ve approached those matches.“The technical team approach matches differently after the exit of David Duncan and it has been the perfect plan for the team and it has also brought the spirit of the club back,” he told Asempa Sports.“Whatever the coach tells the players to do, the players are able to adapt to it and it has really helped the team.”“The players had enough rest after the Tumu match and we travelled to Dawu but we believe at the end of the match, we will carry the day by winning the match despite our long journey.”The deputy communications was also expecting a difficult tie but was confident his side can triumph. “We know it is going to be a difficult match Dawu because of where the match will be played and it going to be exciting as well because comparing both coaches, they both played in the Black Stars, both played in Germany, and had their coaching courses at Germany.”“We have been informed that Dreams FC have a good pitch and with the tactics our players play, you need a good pitch to see exactly what the players wants to play,” he added. “We know they have not lost any match at home but with the experience Kotoko have and the preparations that we have put in place, we are very optimistic that we will win this match.” –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
