LEI vs JAM Dream11 Team Prediction: Table topper Leeward Islands take on Jamaica as the side look to emulate their high flying start today.
The only team in Group A of the Super50 Cup to have registered two wins out of two, for Leeward Islands, the ongoing edition of the domestic one day tournament couldn’t have gotten off to a more flourishing start. Sitting in the annuls of the points tally, the team occupy a spot completely befitting of their performances with the side not only winning matches but completely dominating their opponents in the early exchanges.
Whilst the side were always considered to be one of the overwhelming favourites for the glamorous trophy given the massive hoard of world-class performers inducted in the side, the manner in which they have clinically thwarted their opponents has made for resplendent viewing. Their most recent outing in the league saw them thump Canada by a colossal 70 runs, firs scoring 257 themselves before putting the brakes on their opponent’s run chase at just 187.
Elsewhere, their opponents of the day were routed by Barbados in a 75 run put down by the side to Jamaica currently occupy bottom place in the group after their opening sojourn in the tournament. The side managed to muster up a mere 190 in reply to Barbados’ 265, a sorry run chase which saw them never manage to get behind the target at hand to be rattled and battered.

LEI vs JAM Dream11 Team Prediction
LEI vs JAM Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
He didn’t score huge runs in the previous match but with 107 runs in 2 encounter, Leeward Island’s Devon Thomas was always going to be an instant pick for us in the wicket-keeping docket of our Dream 11 outfit.
LEI vs JAM Dream11 Batsmen
He will be accompanied by Kieran Powell for this encounter with the bat justifying the tag being accorded on him of him being a patron of some momentous innings in West Indies’ domestic T20 circuit. We have decided to pair him up with Amir Jangoo whilst from the opposition, Alex McCarthy was always going to be an instant for us after his imperious display in the first match which saw him pile on a massive 95 runs with the bat along with snaring 4 wickets with the ball.
LEI vs JAM Dream11 All-rounders
Rakheem Cornwall didn’t enjoy the best of campaigns in the Caribbean Premier League but the player has shifted to the 50 over format quite quickly to adjust to be perfectly. He’s snagged six wickets in two matches already along with chipping in with more than ample innings with the bat as well to make the all-rounder someone we just couldn’t do without today.
He will be accompanied by Terrence Warde for today’s impending encounter while from the other side we have chosen their captain Rovman Powell given his skill set with both the bat and ball.
LEI vs JAM Dream11 Bowlers
The identity of the surface which is going to be made available to us today means we had to make his our most heavily packed facet of our side. We are bringing in the four bowlers over here with the two apiece coming in from either side, beginning with Sheeno Berridge from Leeward Island with the player being his side’s leading wicket taker till now with a massive 7 wickets.
He will be partnered up by Jason Campbell while from the other side of the green we are opting for Jamie Merchant after his restrictive spell made it extremely tough to peel him off for even the singles. Derval Green comes in as well from the side to wrap up proceedings for us for the imminent tie.
