An English Domination on the cards in this Dream11 Clash.
Afghanistan is the only team which is yet to find a win in the tournament. They face off red hot England at Old Trafford today. Apart from their defeat against Pakistan, England has been ruthless in their victories in the tournament. On the other hand, Afghanistan which is touted to be a tricky opposition pre-tournament hasn’t been able to live up to it. This might be their best chance to show their abilities and be the underdog at Manchester.
Afghanistan might be tempted to consider Mujeeb with the amount of turn that was on display on Sunday. England, on the other hand, is likely to bring in James Vince in place of injured Roy. Morgan’s availability will be decided before the match. Other than the injury concerns England might also consider bringing in Mooen Ali in place of a pacer.
Old Trafford is usually not a high scoring venue but the other day it turned out to be a surprise. On Tuesday it might be the same if conditions stay dry, but the forecast suggests otherwise as few showers are expected in the afternoon.
He is leading the run charts for England in the tournament with a couple of hundreds on his back. Against Afghanistan, he will be even more crucial at the top of the order in the absence of Roy and also considering Bairstow’s troubles against spin early in the innings, which Afghanistan will definitely exploit. These factors make him a must-have player in Dream11 fantasy cricket team.
He is another batsman who will be key for England on Tuesday. His experience of having played against Afghanistan spinners in various T20 leagues around the globe might just prompt England to send him at No. 4 on Tuesday. His uncanny ability against spin makes him a worthy pick in Dream11 fantasy cricket team in today’s match.
Afghanistan batsmen have found it hard even against medium pacers so far in the tournament and a bowler like Archer, who is in commendable form will be an uphill task for them to tackle. If he can continue his recent form on Tuesday, there is every chance that we are up for a shorter than usual game.
The T20 World’s best player is yet to showcase his magic in this tournament. His form and the way Afghanistan bat has neither helped him nor his fellow spinners’ cause. But at Old Trafford, he has a great chance to come back to his best as the surface has produced a considerable amount of turn in the previous match held there.
