KUW vs MAL Dream11 Team: Firm favourites for winning the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier, Malaysia look to start proceedings with an emphatic win today
For Singapore, Kuwait, Qatar, Nepal and Malaysia, there might not be a more momentous occasions than the tournament the five sides are set to step into starting today. The five sides are set to begin their journey in the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier, a tournament which brings with it a massive opportunity too qualify for the next stage of the qualification process.
Taking on each other staring July 22 till July 28, the five sides will be squaring off against each other once as either vies to top the league standings. With the team sitting at the summit at the end of the marquee tournament assuring themselves of the lone berth this tournament offers to the ICC World Cup Qualifier, expect this to be an extremely competitive, gusty, closely fought and enthralling affair.
And playing in the second match of Monday will be Malaysia, a side who have been on an ever rising spree in the world of cricket. Earmarked by the ICC as one of the fastest growing sides in the countries hailing from the development program region, Malaysia have gone onto reaffirm the massive faith entrusted in them by developing a squad of some real worldclass players.
What has served the side extremely well is the heavy batting order, one which has seen the side put on some hefty totals with their well disciplined and ominous bowlers complimenting them perfectly. And the side will be looking to emulate the scrumptious performances that have seen them make it this fair when they take on a well inferior Kuwait outfit today.
Probable Winner for KUW vs MAL Dream11
With net run-rate a likely possibility at deciding who tops the standings at the culmination of the tournament, fully expect Malaysia to come hot out of the blocks in this one. They know they are up against one of the weakest sides in the tournament at the moment, a team they can decimate and garner in their kitty a healthy net run-rate.
For us, Malaysia should cruise to a win in this match and add to their account, two important points to begin their sojourn.
Wicket-Keepers for KUW vs MAL Dream11
Perhaps the easiest of departments for us to craft out in this encounter, picking up a wicket-keeper for this match needed no deliberations. There was only one choice which stared us in the face, that of Malaysia’s Shafiq Sharif, a name who has served the side extremely consistently over the course of 2019.
Batsmen for KUW vs MAL Dream11
Along with Sharif, the other bat who has played an equally instrumental role in Malaysia’s rise in the cricketing fraternity has been Anwar Arudin. He has reaffirmed the immense pool of strokeplay he possesses, fully justifying his capabilities as a batsman to stitch several important match winning partnerships alongside Sharif.
We have also gone ahead with Ahmad Faiz from the side while form Kuwait there was only one batsman who we decided to bring in, in the form of Ravija Sandaruwan.
All-Rounders for KUW vs MAL Dream11
Two equally pivotal players for Malaysia have been their all-rounders’ Virandeep Singh and Syed Aziz, two names who have taken the onus on themselves to deliver pivotal performances at crucial juncture. Incurring a flawless brand of cricket in the side to promote a culture of excellence, these two mainstays had to be brought in by us for this encounter.
Once again we have only one player come in for us from Kuwait with us selecting Adnan Idrees.
Bowling Order KUW vs MAL Dream11
In Muhammad Anwar and Firti Sham, we have two of the finest bowlers across all the 5 participating sides, two names who have ensured that Malaysia have bundled out sides extremely cheaply to help imbed a the framework of unprecedented success for the side. The deadly two man partnership has earned massive laurels across the global stage owing to their rippers and we see them blowing apart Kuwait’s batting line-up today.
With the T20 format being one where wickets are bound to tumble, we have two players coming in from Kuwait as well in the form of Ilyas Ahmed and Hamoud Jandu.

Top-order bat Sharif has been selected as our captain for this while we have gone ahead with Aziz as the vice-captain.
