AFGH vs PAK Dream 11 Prediction: Best Dream11 team for today’s Afghanistan vs Pakistan Warm-up match | CWC 2019 as TSR helps you with Dream 11.

The ICC Cricket World Cup is around the corner and we have the first of the warm up matches being played between Pakistan and Afghanistan at Bristol. While Pakistan is coming off a 4-0 loss to England, Afghanistan are coming off a tied ODI series against Ireland. Let us see the best Dream11 team for this warm up match which will feature all 15 players from both the teams.

Note: Dream11 has changed it’s team combination rules. We can now select 1-4 wicket-keepers, 3-6 batsmen, 1-4 all-rounders and 3-6 bowlers. This gives us some space to try out newer and better combinations for our team.

AFGH vs PAK Dream 11 Prediction

Bowlers for AFGH vs PAK Dream 11

The thirrd ranked ODI bowler, Rashid Khan, is my first pick here without a doubt. Rashid has taken the cricketing world by storm and has already achieved legendary status in Afghanistan. Rashid picks up regular wickets and will probably be bowling lots of overs in this match. He is a must-have guys!

Dawlat Zadran is one of Afghanistan’s premier pacers. He bowls a number of overs at the death as well which gives him many wicket-taking opportunities. D. Zadran has been a constant in the Afghani team for a long time and we expect him to come good again.

Pakistani pacer Hasan Ali is my last bowler here. Ali has been in decent form and he loves bowling in England. Hasan Ali has made a name for himself with his pace and accuracy. Ali can also pick up a few wickets especially in the last 10 overs. Get him in!

All-rounders for AFGH vs PAK Dream 11

I go in with as many as three all-rounders. Now, it being a warm up match, the all-rounders will probably not get the opportunity to contribute with both their skill sets. However, if these 3 players can contribute in even 1 field, they can bring me many points.

Mohammad Nabi is an experienced cricketer who is one of the best all-rounders in the world. Nabi will be bowling quite a few overs which I hope will be filled with wickets. He can also come to bat in the middle order and get some vital runs.

Similarly, Gulbadin Naib is also a great all-rounder. His batting has improved a lot off late. In the series against Ireland, Naib picked up 6 wickets in the second ODI. He also bats in the middle order and has a lot of scoring opportunities. Naib can be a huge asset for my team.

Pakistan will be happy to have Shadab Khan back in their team. The young man has impressed one and all and there was serious doubt about his fitness for the World Cup.

However, he is raring to go and should be getting to bowl quite a few overs here considering the management would like to get him match fit. He might not bat much but can make a significant difference with the ball in hand.

Wicket-keepers for AFGH vs PAK Dream 11

I have 2 options here and I can go with both after the change in rules. However, I am going to pick only Mohammad Shahzad in my team. Sarfraz is also a great batsman but I would prefer having some other batsmen with more scoring potential. Shahzad has been brutal with the bat. He scored a century in the Ireland series and will look to carry his form into the World Cup. I make Shahzad my captain as well due to his destructive batting potential.

Batsmen for AFGH vs PAK Dream 11

The Pakistani batsmen have been in some form of late. They did not win any match against England but their batsmen surely put in some awe-inspiring display of batting. I get in the top 3 batsmen of Pakistan. They have been absolutely unbelievable with the bat and all 3 have scored at least 1 century in the series against England.

Babar Azam hit a fantastic hundred in the last match and Imam up Haq did the same a few matches before that. Fakhar Zaman has also been timing the ball beautifully and could be in for many more runs. I get in the trio and make Babar Azam, the most dependable Pakistani batsman, my vice captain for this match.

My last batsman is the Afghan, Rahmat Shah. Rahmat has been in blistering form off late scoring a great 62 in the last match against Ireland when he batted at No. 3. Rahmat has the ability to hold the middle order together and build partnerships as well. He could be in for another run fest considering how well he plays the shots.
