However, due to the circumstances and the need for England to deliver, we’ve given them the slight priority.
Wicket-keepers for ENG vs AUS Dream 11 :
Jonny Bairstrow: The English wicket-keeper has been in great form since the start of the IPL and replicated the same in this tournament He has scored 218 runs in six games at an average of 36.80 and a strike rate of 95.

James Vince: Vince has been chosen for this matchup because of lack of better options available in the same credit range. He has played 2 games for England accumulating 40 runs in the process. However, he is a smart batsman who knows how to get an innings going and if he does get a chance, he might just deliver.

In his 6 games, Warner has 2 fifties and 2 hundreds, which includes a tournament high of 166. He has an average of 90 runs, and a strike rate very similar.

Aaron Finch: Finch is another Australian batsman playing some tremendous cricket. His grand total of 396 runs in the tournament includes 153 against Sri Lanka. He also has 30 fifties in the tournament and is batting with a strike rate of 110. England bowlers need to really look out and stop the opposition’s inform openers in time.

He has taken 4 wickets, and has scored 98 runs, including a 92 against West Indies. He can do both and will deliver for Australis if comes down to it.
