ITA Vs KEN Dream11 Team And Match Report: Italy and Kenya get their CWC Challenge League B sorties underway today with either side eyeing up a win.
Although the ICC 2023 CWC is still more than three years away, for the six teams partaking in the CWC Challenge League Group B, the journey to making it to the showpiece tournamnet gets underway. In a bid to make the game as expansive as plausible and rope in a hoard of side from the global stage, the International Cricket Council has fathomed a slew of qualification rounds for the World Cup.
The first of the three qualifying rounds for these six sides, ranked 26-32 in the world, the Cricket World Cup Challenge Group B sees its first phase featuring Bermuda, Hong Kong, Italy, Jersey, Kenya and Uganda get underway. Each side will be handed over five matches in the first of three rounds with the subsequent ones to be contested in 2020 and 2021 with the winner at the end of those three tournamnets sealing their berth in the second round of the tedious qualification process.
And for all these relatively unknown teams, the qualifiers are not only a chance to throw in their cap for being involved in the biggest stage of them all but also a pristine opportunity to show their skill set to the cricketing fraternity. It’s something Italy and Kenya will be having on their minds as the foremost priority when the two sides go at loggerheads in a bid to walk away with the three points from this clash and embark on their qualification sortie with aplomb.

ITA Vs KEN Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With 173 runs for his side in the T20 World Cup Qualifiers, Irfan Karim is going to be enshrined in our Dream 11 encounter for today’s encounter. The wicket-keeper is capable of holding fort for his side and waging a lone battle, making him a safe pick for this time.

The 141 runs in the same tournamnet see us pick up Dhiren Gondaria as well from Kenya for the day alongside Aman Gandhi. On a batting conducive wicket, these two can easily thrive given their expansive strokeplay, one which has see them emerge as instrumental performers for the side in their ascendancy in the cricketing arena.
Elsewhere from the Italian side we have just the one selection with us imbedding their captain Joy Perera, a player who is going to be integral to their chances of emerging from this clash unscathed.
ITA Vs KEN Dream11 All-Rounders
With four wickets for his side when they took on Germany, Nicholas Maiolo is going to be an instant pick for us for this encounter from the Italian unit. He’s some who has manifested into an integral component far his side given his ability to incorporate his traits in both the facets, making him an extremely sublime choice from the team.
Michael Ross got the four wickets for his side in that series seeing him come in as well from the side along with Gareth Berg while from Kenya we are picking up Collins Obuya, someone who has garnered up a solid amount of runs with the bat recently.
ITA Vs KEN Dream11 Bowling Order
Given Italy’s predicament with the bat with the side still getting used to the gargantuan standards of bowling in the echelons of world cricket, it was only befitting of us to get in a duo from Kenya. The African country is set to viciously perturb the Italians today and cramp them up with ominous deliveries, something Lameck Onyango and Lucas Oluoch are more than capable of carrying out.
Elsewhere from Italy, Rakibul Hasan comes in to wrap up proceedings for us for this forthcoming tie.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Obuya will represent out setup as the captain for this one whilst we have selected Ross as the vice-captain.
