GUE vs JER Dream 11 Team: The ICC T20 Cricket World Cup Europe Final gets underway with hosts Guernsey taking on Jersey in the opening fixture of the pivotal tournament
Guernsey Vs Jersey T20 World Cup Europe Final Best Dream 11 Team
After a set of enthralling warm-up fixtures in the build up to a wonderful initiative by the ICC, the T20 World Cup Europe Final gets underway on Wednessday in Guernsey. At stake is not just the chance for these upcoming sides to win a trophy which would set of their international sojourn on the right footing but also a spot in the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier to be held later this year.
Part of the ICC Development Program, Europe, the showpiece tournament was conceptualised with the idea of increasing the outreach of the game to as colossal a platform as possible. And bringing for one of the six participating sides the opportunity to nail down on a spot in the impending qualifiers for next year’s WT20 Wold Cup is only going to increase the competitive and feisty edge to the tournament.
Slated to be held from June 15-20, host country Guernsey will be beginning the tournament on Saturday when they take on Jersey. Having defeated Germany in their last practice encounter by 15 runs after notching up 146 runs on the scoreboard, the home side are traversing into the tournament as firm favourites.
Played as full T20s and to be counted towards each side’s member ranking, the tournament is one of the most colossal moments in their short cricketing life on the international arena. It’s an opportunity to showcase their skill set extradonaire and reverberate the up rise which has seen them emerge as the finest countries from the European continent.
As far as this particular encounter go, we envision Guernsey to emerge out of this with a win. Their recent soirees have seen them display an astute brand of cricket, encapsulating sensational batting and bowling performances. Lucas Barker and Dave Hooper are two of the most worldclass players at the marquee event from all the sides and Guernsey are lucky to have the duo representing them.
Playing their first match of the day, Guernsey should cruise through this with an easy win before subsequently playing their second encounter proceeding it.
Wicket-Keeper for GUE vs JER Dream 11
With this being the first match of the tournament and the two sides a relative new entity in the cricketing arena, we have decided to pick up both the wicket-keepers for this match. What the players behind the wicket accords us is the opportunity to come up with catch and stumping points as well and we fully see both these players being heavily involved throughout.
Newey comes in from the host country while representing Jersey will be Dunford.
Batsmen for GUE vs JER Dream 11
His 48 run innings against Germany was a testament to the skill set which Guernsey’s players have imbued over time. It was an innings which bespoke grace and sublime cricket from Barker and in his side’s tournament opener we expect him to play a pivotal role yet again. He’ll be accompanied by Butler with us seeing this rummage out as a relatively low scoring match.
We expect Jersey to have a tricky outing against a relentless Guernsey bowling unit and that sees us opt for the lone player from their batting order in the form of Ferraby.
All-Rounders for GUE vs JER Dream 11
We want to pack our side heavily on the bowling front given how confident we are of atleast one country being bowled out and that sees us lightly pack our all-rounders’ facet. The one player each from either side makes a foray into our Dream 11 side with Blamped from Jersey and Tissier come Guernsey coming in.
Bowling Order for GUE vs JER Dream 11
His three wicket haul against Germany not only rendered them obsolete but also saw Guernsey restrict their opposition to a lowly 131 on the day. And with Hooper being such a spectacular exponent of the ball, a frontline pick for his side, we are going to pick him up first along with Peatfiled.
For all of Jersey’s problems in the batting component, the fact that they will be picking up wickets is a certainty. Perchard and Miles both have been the reason for the country’s resurgence and they are bound to launch a carnage with some jaffers to leave Guernsey perturbed.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Both the picks come from Guernsey with Baker the captain while Hooper is going to be selected as the vice-captain pick.
