DEN vs VEN Dream11 : Bottom of the league clash sees Denmark and Vanuatu go at loggerheads in a bid to register their win on the points tally
For Denmark, the CWC Challenge League couldn’t have gotten off to a more torrid start. It’s been a chastening beginning to what was always going to be a tricky opening schedule to navigate with the side falling to two straight defeats, following up their opening defeat to Malaysia with a defeat against Singapore yesterday.
Chasing Singapore 249 as they looked to get their first win of the league, Denmark ended up losing all 10 of their wickets for the second time on the bounce as a treacherous run chase capitulated for them. In what was a lacklustre pursuit, one where they were never able to find their footing in the middle, the side did end up batting the full 50 overs through, making 213, 36 runs short off the target put up infront of them.
Now up against one of the newest entrants in the world of the cricketing arena, for Denmark, today’s match will be a defining moment. They know things won’t be easy for them today though with Vanuatu winning us over with their display against Canada, covering themselves with glory as they snared five wickets to make the chase of 161 a tricky one for Canada, one they were ultimately able to achieve.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With rain marring all the grounds across the opening days of the league, toady looks to be no different with us set for a match where rain could edn up playing havoc. If we do have rain, the side winning the toss will be looking to field first as opposed to batting first in its absence.
Overall, this is a surface where coring runs won’t be the easiest of tasks with the surface opening up and crumbling as we rummage through the match, allowing the spinners to come into full effect. Anything close to 250 will be more than adequate while batting first.
Probable Playing 11
J Henriksen, H Shah (C), Z Khan, F Klokker (WK), Z Shah, R Mahmood, Anique Uddin, O Hald, Jojo, D Khan, N Laegsgaard
J Rasu, X Tommy, S Deitz (WK), P Matautaava, A Mansale (C), N Nipiko, R Tari, J Chilia, S Obed, A Stephen, W Nalisa
DEN vs VEN Match Prediction
This should be a closely contested affair with Vanuatu impressing with both the bat and ball the last time around, a side which Demark will be immensely cautions of come today. However, what works in their favour is the level to which their batting order goes with the number 9 spot capable of playing a cameo, runs which will be worth gold today.

DEN vs VEN Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
He scored just 12 runs against Canada but what caught our eye were the 50 balls he was able to stick it out in the middle. Vanuatu’s wicket-keeper, Shane Deitz was more than willing to show composure and bide his time out in the middle, making him an instant pick for us for today’s match from the side.
DEN vs VEN Dream11 Batsmen
We continue with the picks from Vanuatu, brining in both of Clement Tommy and Ronald Tari from the side for this match. They both were their side’s top scorers the last time around with Tommy negotiating the new ball perfectly to score 42 while a cameo from Tari saw him hit the two fours and two 6s in his innings of 30.
The one pick from the opposition with number 3 bat Zameer Khan being opted for us after his 32 runs yesterday.
DEN vs VEN Dream11 All-Rounders
We bring in the two all-rounders from Denmark over here, finally compensating for players from their batting order with us selecting Jonas Henriksen and Anique Uddin. Opener Henriksen scored 30 in the opening slot while Uddin got 43 in the lower middle-order, a performance which ensured Denmark were not bundled out at a lowly point to save themselves from the embarrassment of a harrowing defeat.
With 2-23 with the new ball the last time around, Patrick Matautaava is our option from the opposition for today’s match.
DEN vs VEN Dream11 Bowling Order
Both the sides have shown that they are too prone for being decimated while batting, losing their way to tumble under the slightest bit of wicket to wicket bowling. And with Vanuatu looking more vulnerable, we are selecting Delawar Khan and Oliver Hald from Denmark with Delawar picking up three wickets against Singapore.
Elsewhere Vanuatu were impressive one the bowling front against Canada as well, stifling the opposition as they picked up 5 wickets seeing us pick out the duo of Apolinaire Stepehn and Williamsing Nalisa from the side.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Delawar is our captain for today’s match while Patrick is being made our vice-captain.
