AFGH Vs WI Dream11, Team Overview, Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Comprehensively outplayed in the ODI series, Afghanistan look to find solace in the shortest format of the game.
Routed, trounced and thumped in the bygone three match ODI series, for Afghanistan, their sojourn against West Indies has been a beleaguered one. The side were not just defeated in the ODI encounters but made light work of and walked all over to see the visitors sweep the series 3-0, winning each match with consummate ease.
The final encounter of the series saw the West Indians exult yet another resplendent performance to register a five wicket win on the day. Heading out in pursuit of 250, the side ended up winning with an over to spare as meaningful partnerships were strung together persistently to see the side leave Afghanistan in dismay yet again and continue in their dominant manner.
However, the side have been pegged back with an unsavoury scandal hitting the side with the unit being accused of trying to change the shape and structure of the ball in the same encounter. Nicholas Pooran was identified as the guilty party, seeing the player being handed over a four match ban by the ICC in lieu of his derogatory actions which went against the rules of the game.
Rocked by the latest developments which are bound to come as a massive setback to the visiting side, paired with the fact that Afghanistan have tasted consummate success in the T20 format, the Afghani side will be looking to overhaul their underachieving form come the three match series. Today’s encounter is a pivotal one for them, one which will determine f they’ll continue to be mere pushovers or actually step upto the mantle to be true challengers.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
An extremely good wicket for batting, we should be in for a colossal scoring affair with the team winning the toss all set to step out and chase given how wet the field will turn as the match runs its course. The wicket will slow down slightly in the second part of the match but nothing too much to deter the batsmen to continue in their marauding ways.

AFGH Vs WI Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With Nicholas Pooran out of the series for West Indies, we are moving in with Dinesh Ramdin from the unit for this encounter. The player is a steady and safe bat, someone always capable of cantering his way to a solid amount of runs to make him our choice in this docket.
AFGH Vs WI Dream11 Batsmen
Given the exquisite and exemplary batting conditions at our disposal today, we had to heavily pack up our batting order with all the star performers from West Indies. We have gone in with their entire top-order, roping in their openers Brandon King and Elvin Lewis without any deliberations.
With 496 runs in 12 encounters in the 2019 edition of the Caribbean Premier League, Brandon King was in indomitable form, dismissing bowlers with disdain as he descend upon the league in stupendous fashion. Lendl Simmons comes in to complete the trivalent of picks from the side whilst from Afghanistan we have opted for the feisty and fiery Javed Ahmadi after his piquant performances in the Shpageeza Cricket League saw him amass the 351 runs.
AFGH Vs WI Dream11 All-Rounders
A 50 in the culminating encounter of the ODI series along with the one wicket to go with it sees us make Afghanistan’s Mohammad Nabi the first player to be enshrined in our Dream 11 outfit of the day. He finds company in the form of Gulbadin Naib, seeing us go in for two players who will be handed over integral roles with both the bat and ball to make their dual nature as performers a steady source of points for today.
From the other side meanwhile we’ll be wrapping up our side with pick of Jason Holder for this one.
AFGH Vs WI Dream11 Bowling Order
Rashid Khan endured a horrid time in the ODI series but come the T20 format and the player is bound to play a better ole for his unit. He’s bound to snare wickets as West Indies look to go after him in their bid to up the ante with his luring deliveries set to reward his with wickets.
From West Indies on the other hand we have opted for Sheldon Cottrell and Kesrick Williams, opting for their frontline quicks with the two players set to dwell into their repertoire of skill set and return with wickets at regular intervals.
