ENG vs AFGH Dream 11 Prediction
Wicket-keepers for ENG vs AFGH Dream 11
I have named a couple of English wicket-keeper batsmen in my Dream11 fantasy team for this match. The first one being their opening batsman Jonny Bairstow. He might have failed to convert his starts into a big innings so far but has unequivocally looked good. In Roy’s absence, Bairstow will look to take the onus on himself.
Sans Morgan, England will be led by vice-captain Jos Buttler. Having scored runs at an average of 61.66 and a strike rate of 136.02 including one century and half-century each in this tournament, Buttler is in pristine touch. Another reason behind picking him in my squad is his record as ODI captain.
In six ODIs as captain, Buttler has led England to four wins and two losses. With the bat, he has scored 236 runs at an average of 47.20 and a strike rate of 121.02 including three half-centuries.
Batsmen for ENG vs AFGH Dream 11
My first batsman for this match is England’s Joe Root. Having scored two centuries and a half-century in four matches, there aren’t many reasons for not picking him. An adept batsman against spin, Root’s form is most likely to counter the Afghani spinners. Get him in to yield profit from this match!

I have picked the Afghani duo of opening batsman Hazratullah Zazai and former captain Asghar Afghan for this match. While they haven’t been in the best of forms lately, their potential makes them find a place each in this team.
All-rounders for ENG vs AFGH Dream 11
My all-rounders for today is the England duo of Ben Stokes and Moeen Ali. In Morgan’s absence, both of them are highly likely to bat up the order which in association with their bowling skills make them an automatic choice for this match.
While Ali hadn’t played the last two matches, he would be looking to make the most of this opportunity. In four ODIs at Old Trafford, he has dismissed eight batsmen at an average of 13.50, an economy rate of 4.37 and a strike rate of 18.5.
For Afghanistan, all-rounder Mohammad Nabi has been one of their top players in the tournament. The veteran cricketer can come good against some English batsmen who aren’t the best players of spin bowling.
Bowlers for ENG vs AFGH Dream 11
Having picked nine wickets at an average of 18.33, an economy rate of 4.73 and a strike rate of 23.2, Jofra Archer is England’s highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far. Expected to bowl with the new ball and in the death overs, include Archer to earn some easy points.
My second English fast bowler is Liam Plunkett. My first-choice for this spot was Mark Wood but a budget constraint made me go for the former, who isn’t a bad option either. A consistent face while bowling for England in the middle overs, I expect Plunkett to aid you in accumulating points.
It is true that Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan hasn’t been at his best in this tournament. If used well against England, Rashid has it in him to possess danger especially in the first powerplay.
