DEN vs FIN Dream11 Team: Denmark and Finland to square off against each other for a two match T20 series today
With the ICC looking to make the sport as expansive as possible and take the game to countries previously untapped, a new fixture takes birth in the European continent today. Part of the ICC Development Program for the European region, Denmark and Finland will be clashing heads against each other for the first time in the cricketing area today.
Both the sides are set to play against each other in a two match T20 series with both the matches slated for today at Svanholm Park. And both the sides come into the series off the back of different results in their previous sojourns, making this series hold different ramifications for both the sides.
One of the most promising outfits in international cricket at the moment, if there is one side which has benefited the most from ICC’s intervention to provide a befitting platform to such teams, its Denmark. Winning the recently concluded ICC T20 Qualifier Europe Region Final after defeating Italy by 30 runs in the summit clash, the side are imbued with a set of worldclass players who know just what it takes to succeed on the highest level.
And taking on Finland today, Denmark are up against an opponent they know they can get past easily if they dole out the same level of performances which saw them taste consummate the last time they took to the big stage. They’ll be looking to start things off with a win in the first match of the day before they eventually play Finland yet again within the space of an hour.
With little experience behind them and a long road to still travel before they can be called amongst the best in the world, Finland know this series of them is a massive opportunity to play against a well versed Denmark side. They’ll be looking to learn the know how requisite to success at the international arena under the tutelage of Denmark’s exceptional players and imbed a culture of excellence in their side.
With Denmark clearly outshining Finland in both the departments of the game, this can be a match which is extremely lopsided. Expect Denmark to win this one as comfortably as possible and take a 1-0 lead in the series.
Wicket-Keeper for DEN vs FIN Dream11
Taranjit Bharaj from Denmark is our man with the gloves for this clash. An instrumental part of his side’s batting line-up, he’s going to be key to adding vital runs for his side today.
Batsmen for DEN vs FIN Dream11
We’ll continue with the lone selection from Denmark with Zameer Khan being the only batsman we have selected in this facet from the side.
We have a duo coming in from Finland meanwhile, making the batting order the only department which the side dominate in our Dream 11 side for the series opener. Captain Nathan Collins is going to be partnered by Peter Gallagher for this particular encounter given the ability of the two bats to parry away the trickiest of bowlers on their day. We particular have high expectations from Collins, is side’s highest run getter over the last two years, carrying the form into the series with 2 50s in his previous 5 contests.
All-Rounders for DEN vs FIN Dream11
When we had started crafting our side out for this particular match, this department was one we were eagerly waiting to get started on. Denmark’s framework of compelling success in recent times has stemmed due to their all-rounders with a trio taking centrestage over here for them.
The second highest run getter in the Europe Region Final with the 101 runs in 6 matches, Nicolaj Laegsgaard is going to be paired up with the top scorer in the form of Hamin Mazhar Shah. The two together stitched together several pivotal stands for their side in that tournament, helping take their side to the pinnacle of success and we envision them delivering the same today.
We complete this department with Oliver Damgaard Hald also coming in from their side.
Bowling Order for DEN vs FIN Dream11
The one thing which is a bigger certainty than Denmark wining this encounter is the fact that wickets re going to pour in this encounter. Both the sides are prone to crumbling under a good spell of compelling bowling and this sees us opt for Finland’s pair of Hariharan Dandapani and Shoaib Qureshi.
From Denmark its Saif Ahmad and Bashir Shah who are our two picks. The two frontline pacers are going to be at the forefront of their side’s bowling unit and are bound to get a rich basketful of wickets in this match.
