AUS vs JPN Dream11 : Japan look to register straight wins for the first time this world cup when they take on a wining Australia side today
Famished for enthralling and intriguing action in the FIVB Volleyball World Cup as the marquee tournamnet broke off for two days of rest, the competition returns with the hosts returning to the court. Going at loggerheads against Australia today, this encounter comes bearing with it a gargantuan identity for the Japanese with the hosts looking to get two wins in succession today.
The ongoing instalment of the world cup has been a mixed bag of results for Japan. While the hosts have amply impressed to aptly sit in fourth place as things stand, the side have equally languished as well, unravelling infront of superior and guile filled oppositions. The defence has been particularly suspect and caught unaware, subjected to a battering and losing its way to see the side left ruing what could have been an ever better set of events for them.
However with a win against Argentina in their previous outing, a 3-1 result in their favour, the side will be heading out buoyed and imbued with immense confidence ahead of today’s closing encounter. Also, what will make them quietly confident of cruising to a win today is the horrid nature of their opponent with the side squaring off against a floundering Australia side, a team which finds itself in the trenches of the league with just the one win from five matches.
Routed 3-1 by Canada right before the break, Australia are in a dire situation, one where the side have been mauled and flayed by everyone they have met. The break couldn’t have come at a better time for them with the side being accorded ample time to get out of their plight and overhaul what has been a tournamnet of massive underachievement till now.

AUS vs JPN Dream11 Libero
With both the sides having struggled defensively while at the same time having proven their attacking mettle more than adequately, this looks to be a match where the defensive gameplan is thrown out of the window by either side. Our pick of Luke Perry from Australia was done owing to the time he’s accorded out in the middle with the libero getting a majority of the match to play without being substituted.
He’s also a good receiver and picker of the ball, someone who should be able to muster up a good amount of points, seeing him come into our side for this one.
AUS vs JPN Dream11 Setter
With a mere 4 mistakes in the 420 still and running sets he’s tried to conjure up for his side, Arshdeep Dosanjh has carried out the role given to him more than adequately. The setter has not only positioned himself in the right areas but built an understanding with the hitters as well to send up the ball in their hitting zones and layup possession for them perfectly.
AUS vs JPN Dream11 Blocker
When both the defences are compared, the home side jus about manage to edge Australia, seeing us pick up their middle blocker, Taishi Onodera for this clash. With 11 stuff blocks and 29 rebounds, the blocker has been the side’s leading defender, utilising his imperious quality as a defender to immense effect to become an instant pick for us in this one.
AUS vs JPN Dream11 Attackers
With Australia’s vulnerability in defence well documented, we had to pick up the hosts’ hitter, Yuki Ishikawa for this clash. It’s his all round quality as a player which has won us over this tournamnet, seeing him not only pick up a staggering 57 attacking points but in tandem pair them up with the 32 serves and 8 blocks as well to become an impeccable performer for his side.
AUS vs JPN Dream11 Universal
With 28 attacking points along with the 57 spikes, Japan’s universal, Yuji Nishida accompanies Yuki for this encounter. It’s a formidable and daunting partnership, one which will leave Australia is disarray given their immaculate ability to dismiss defences with disdain, making Yuji an instant pick for this one.
Meanwhile we have also picked up Australia’s universal with Lincoln Alexander Williams being brought into our side for this one. His 69 spikes come with the 4 blocks, making him a player who the side will heavily bank on to rescue them and make things jittery for Japan in this one.
Japan’s Yuki is our captain for this encounter whilst we are moving in with Lincoln as the vice-captain.
