LEI vs WAS Dream11 Team Prediction: Both teams look to get playing time after their opening fixtures were abandoned.

Seeing rain curtail a cricket match always makes for tedious viewing. We had to suffer it at the recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and the Vitality Blast had had to suffer the ramifications of floundering weather as well with rain persistently lashing the different stadiums across the country.

It resulted in both the Birmingham Bears and Leicestershire Foxes opening encounters being truncated without a ball being bowled as the rain refused to seize, leaving both of today’s opponents dejected. It makes out clash today more enticing as these two outfits turn to each other to finally begin their sojourn and get their campaign underway in the 2019 installment of the frontier tournament.

With all-rounder Moeen Ali and pacer Olly Stone both having departed from the Bears setup to join with England’s practice sessions for the upcoming Ashes series, leaving the pace resources in particular stretched owing which the side have ended up signing Fidel Edwards from Hampshire on a one month long loan. The pacer will be available for 10 games for his side, helping add some depth to a fast bowling department that was left with a serious dearth of options for the side.

Wicket-Keepers for LEI vs WAS Dream11

Lewis Hill from Leicestershire Foxes is our man with the gloves for this one. We do see the Bears losing a good amount of wickets which will see Hill earn points with his catches and stumping dismissals which coupled with his runs make him a safe choice to invest in.

Batsmen for LEI vs WAS Dream11

Continuing with the picks from Leicestershire Foxes he are going ahead with Harry Dearden from the side accompany Hill. It’s a much more resolute line-up from the Bears with Dominic Sibley and Ian Bell being inducted in our side to make for a seamless blend of function and grace.

With the conditions bound to be tricky for batting and the ball to frisk around in the early exchanges, these two can parry the new ball away and ensure the Bears don’t unravel in this one.

All-rounders for LEI vs WAS Dream11

Captain of his side, Colin Ackermann comes in from Leicestershire. He’s earned the role to lead his side owing to his exuberant performances with both the bat and ball, coming in at the all important number 4 slot along with investing himself heavily during his side’s bowling as well.

He’s going to be partnered by Callum Parkinson with the bowler more than capable of coming in and delivering a strong cameo in the death overs to clear the fence with ease. Elsewhere, it’s Alex Thomson who comes in from Bears after emerging with the best figures for wickets per run for his side over the course of the last year.

Bowlers for LEI vs WAS Dream11

In the absence of Chris Woakes, for Leicestershire the importance of Chris Wright grows massively. The frontline pacer will be needed to come and perturb batsmen with his restrictive line and length, using his pace and guile to send the ball in the money areas. Gavin Griffiths is a more than capable partner and also finds a place in our side.

Oliver Hannon Dalby is included in our side from the Bears, someone who has waged a lone battle despite not getting adequate support from the other end recently. Jeetan Patel is the second pick from the side.
