GUE vs ITA Dream 11 Prediction: : Italy look to walk all over a languishing home side in the culminating encounter on Sunday
Two matches, two defeats and return of cricket to Guernsey hasn’t been as they would have fathomed. They’ve been dismal in both their performances, being decimated by Guernsey and Germany to find themselves sitting in the trenches of the league standings after day 1.
Come Day 2 and the home side are being accorded a chance to rectify their mistakes and paper over the clearly visible cracks. They’ve faced the ramifications of an underwhelming batting performance, being made light work of all too easily. It was their biggest weakness heading into the tournament and the dearth of importance paid to it has made for a surprising watch.
On the other hand, Italy who are playing their second match of the day will be looking to challenge Jersey for a spot in the echelon of the league standings. They are one of the most complete batting units at the showpiece tournament, something they showed yesterday as they cantered their way to a solid 85-1 in 10 overs. Their run chase of 153 was eventually brought to an end by relentless rainfall but with them sitting pretty, the DLS method saw them emerge with the two points with a 20 run win.
They might be the home side but Guernsey have done absolutely nothing till now to take advantage of the home conditions. A sordid state of affairs has encapsulated them with their predicament only bound to get worse come Italy.
We just can’t see how Guernsey win this. The runs Italy will pile up are going to be improbable to chase and we can’t see a lacklustre Guernsey side putting on a strong enough total for Italy either. The visitors will win this with ease and strongly reaffirm their status as tournament favourites.
Wicket-Keeper for GUE vs ITA Dream 11
Both the wicket-keepers come in with Singh being Italy’s face for the third straight time while we are going to continue keeping our faith in Guernsey’s Kimber.
Batsmen for GUE vs ITA Dream 11
Abdul, Perera and Maiolo all make a foray into our side. There are little sides who can regale us into the same kind of soiree which the Italians do with the bat and on a surface where rich cricketing shots will be reward expect them to amass a bagful of runs.
From Guernsey, despite their torrid batting performances we have decided to select Butler and Wright. If the hosts are to do anything right on the night, it’s got to begin with these two and we expect them to show fortitude and put in fortitude filed showings.
All-Rounders for GUE vs ITA Dream 11
Stokes from Guernsey is the sole pick for here in this facet. For the first time we are going in with just the one all-rounder because we want to pick up the full of bowlers from Italy given how Guernsey will suffer on a wicket which is set to be played on under dark, looming and cloudy conditions.
Bowling Order for GUE vs ITA Dream 11
Munasingh and Hasan is the deadly partnership from Italy who comes into our Dream 11 side with both he bowlers ardently looking to up the level of their performances during such colossal tournaments. Guernsey see the one pick as well in the form of Hooper, someone who can wield his bat more than fruitfully as well.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Maiolo from Italy gets to be our captain while the vice-captain is from the same country in the form of Singh.
