GUE vs GER Dream 11 Team: Hosts Guernsey return for their second match on the bounce in the matter of an hour on Saturday
Guernsey Vs Germany T20 World Cup Europe Final Best Dream 11 Team
With a coveted spot in the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 Qualifiers on the line, the journey to reserving your name among the contenders is bound to be an arduous one. And hosts Guernsey will get the first taste of what it takes to ply your goods in an international ICC tournament when they play their second match of the day in the matter of an hour.
Taking on Jersey in the tournament opener today afternoon, Guernsey have no time accorded to them in what s a hectic and congested schedule. The host country for the one of the legs of the five regional tournaments being conducted globally in a bid to make the game as expansive by the ICC will take to the field today evening once again to welcome Germany.
However, don’t expect Guernsey to be fazed by the daunting prospect of having no respite in between two matches which promise to be as enthralling as they get. For the home side, not only is the opportunity to host a tournament of such stature a once in a lifetime opportunity but it is also a chance to showcase how far they have come across as a cricketing country over the last year.
Mark Latter, CEO of Guernsey Cricket Board, said: “We are delighted to once again be given the opportunity to welcome the ICC and fellow Associate Member teams to our wonderful island, which we know will be a great place to both play cricket and enjoy our wonderful hospitality.”
“We look forward to seeing all the island out supporting the Greens and coming to watch some superb international cricket. First and foremost, we hope that seeing the National team playing on an international stage, at home, will inspire more boys and girls to take up our great game.”
Going by the script which was played out when these sides met a couple of a days prior to today’s match in a warm-up encounter, we are set to have a thriller on our hands. Making 146 while batting first, Hooper’s three wicket haul ensured Guernsey defended their respectable total, winning by 15 runs in the end.
However with the stakes massively increased come in the ICC T20 World Cup Europe Final, so will the identity of the performance from Germany. They know Guernsey aren’t the strongest of batting units, being pummelled in the beginning of this month by Jersey who kept them quiet at 123-9. With both the sides all too guilty of tumbling and losing quick wickets, the better batting side is going to win this. Having already played earlier in the day and well acclimatised with the home conditions, we see Guernsey coming out of this with a win.
Wicket-Keeper for GUE vs GER Dream 11
We are going to maintain the same identity for the day one fixtures across our Dream 11 outfits and this sees us opt for the one wicket-keeper each from both the sides. From Guernsey it’s going to be Newey who occupies the place behind the wickets for us, while Germany will be represented by Weston.
Batsmen for GUE vs GER Dream 11
We’ll begin with the batsmen from the home side and the first pick is of Baker. The hero for his side in the practice match against the same opposition, the opener plays a crucial role in his side’s success and we see him putting in another stalwart performance. Josh Butler in number three is going to accompany him in our batting unit.
The two batsmen coming in from Germany as well with Vijayshankar and Harmanjot Singh being the two selected picks for us. They are two of the most exceptional players in Germany’s outfit and will be looking to make the most of a paper thin Guernsey bowling unit.
All-Rounders for GUE vs GER Dream 11
It’s going to be the one pick each from either side here and we’ll begin with Stokes first. Against Jersey in the three match T20 series earlier this year, he emerged as their star performer, intertwining both the batting and bowling side of his game to perfection.
Ganesh from Germany is the second all-rounder for us. If Germany are to have a chance of making strides in the league standings and stamping their authority, he needs to be at his stunning best for them.
Bowling Order for GUE vs GER Dream 11
The first bowler from his side to come out in the middle to bat along with a three wicket haul against Germany only recently, Hooper being classified as a bowler in the game is something you need to make the most advantage of. He’s priced extremely cheaply, with his 8.5 credit price tag making him someone we just won’t be missing out on.
Fellow pacer William Peatfiled is going to partner him while from Germany it’s only going to be the lone pick in Klein coming in for us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We’ve once again decided to select both the options from Guernsey with Stokes being selected as our captain while Hooper gets to be the vice-captain for us the second time on the day.
