GUE vs NOR Dream 11 Prediction: After a fully rain curtailed Tuesday, Guernsey look to record their first win of the tournament today
Guernsey Vs Norway T20 World Cup Europe Final Best Dream 11 Team
Chosen to host one of the five separate regional finals which see across them a total of 25 teams partaking in the tournaments, for home side Guernsey, the ICC T20 Europe Final has been far from what can be called a dream outing. A paper thin batting unit, they’ve been bludgeoned by sides left, right and centre, leaving the country flabbergasted with 0 wins from 3 matches.
And what looked to be their best chance to finally win a match when they took on Denmark on Tuesday was snatched away from the hosts by rain. Winning the toss and putting Denmark in to bat first, an exceptional bowling effort by Guernsey saw the pummel Denmark from 55-0 to 100-9, well in control of the match before rain decided to interrupt and put an end to proceedings.
Now back at it again on Wednesday, the home side are heading into their final two matches at the showpiece tournament with a sight on recording their first win of the league. In Norway, they have an opponent they’ll e quietly confident of upstaging.
If anyone has endured a more howler of a time in the tournament than Guernsey, it’s been Norway. They’ve been handsomely trounced in both their matches, seeing their negative net run-rate hammer them down in the last spot.
A match between two of the last placed teams, this is finally a matchup between equals for the two countries. In each other, they are going to be facing off against an opposition which offers the same skill set as them, leaving us with a tasty proposition on our hands.
What edges the scales in Guernsey’s balance is the fact that for all their predicaments in the batting order, as a bowling unit they have mightily impressed. The wicket to wicket bowling and ability to come up with wickets at regular intervals by Cooper and Tissier have served them with fruition and Norway should find that too hard to navigate around. We see Guernsey winning this and putting on their first 2 points.
Wicket-Keeper for GUE vs NOR Dream 11
Raza Iqbal from Norway is our chosen pick over here. In the two matches he’s played in, he’s been consistent with the bat, putting on dependable displays in both of them and we see him being among the runs yet again.
Batsmen for GUE vs NOR Dream 11
We are keeping things pretty simple over here given the way both these sides have tumbled over when batting. With the identity of these outfits presenting to us two of the worst batting sides in the tournament, we have selected the bare requisite of just the three batsmen for this facet to come into our Dream 11 side.
And all three of them are from Guernsey given that we will be compensating for Norway in the all-rounder’s department. The first player to come in from the home side is a batsman who has without a doubt been the most impressive from the country, Butler. He’s going to be partnered by Ferbrache and Wright.
All-Rounders for GUE vs NOR Dream 11
We’ll continue with the selections from Guernsey first and in comes Tissier. He’s been a delight with the ball, following up his three wicket haul against Italy with a couple of scalps against Denmark as well and we are confident of him being among the wickets yet again today morning.
Time to start strengthening our outfit with selections from Norway and Niazi and Ahmed are the two players we call up. After failing to make an appearance in his country’ opening two matches, Ahmed was finally called up on Tuesday and reposed the faith earmarked by his side in him with a stalwart display.
Bowling Order for GUE vs NOR Dream 11
Four bowlers find a place in our Dream 11 side with us confident of both the sides being bowled out in this match. They’ve suffered a horrendous outing in the tournament up till now and we don’t see it changing anytime soon.
From the home side we pick up Hooper with second thoughts with the pacer being the reason for his side’s exuberant showings in the bowling department. The spearhead has lead the line impeccably and partnering him perfectly has been Martel from the other end who got a couple of wickets against Denmark.
From Norway the two man pick sees Bhart and Sheikh come in and wrap up our line-up for the first match of the day.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We’ve decided to make both the all-rounders the captain and vice-captain with Tissier from Guernsey and Niazi from Norway the respective picks.
