PAK vs ENG Dream 11 Prediction: Best Dream11 team for today’s England vs Pakistan 5th ODI as TSR helps you with your Dream 11 team

England couldn’t have sounded off their bid for the upcoming prestigious ODI World Cup more emphatically. With the showpiece tournament slated to get underway in 10 days time in their own backyard, the home nation have indulged themselves in one last international series against Pakistan. And it’s been a profoundly fortuitous series for them, one where they comprehensively battered Pakistan.

As we head into the fifth and final ODI of the series, England will be having the tantalising proposition of sweeping the series motivating them to come up with yet another clinical showing. In the four ODIs played out till now, England have an unassailable 3-0 lead after inclement weather brought an early end to one encounter.

What has been especially sensational from the home side is the way their batsmen have stepped up and announced themselves at the big stage right before the big prize. The likes of Johnny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Ben Stokes and Eoin Morgan have all been in mercurial touch, crafting out the framework for England’s unprecedented dominance. Registering totals in excess of 300 in all the 3 matches that England have indulged in, it’s been a stupendous delight to watch the toothsome shots on display.

Heading into the series concluder on Sunday, we one for last time set out to construct our Dream 11 teams. It’s going to be heavily packed with English players with us envisioning them to wrap up the series just as they began it.

Wicket-Keeper for PAK vs ENG Dream 11

It’s Jos Buttler who is going to be our pick for this spot. He might have gotten out for a 0 the previous time around but we don’t see him crumbling for two matches on the bounce. Also, England are far likelier to pick up wickets than Pakistan, something that could put Buttler in the mix and see him pick up those vital stumpings and catches points.

Batsmen for PAK vs ENG Dream 11

After giving us an abundance of points for the first two matches with two meticulously built knocks, Jonny Bairstow was rested for the previous encounter and we expect him to sit out this one as well. With the last ODI being an inconsequential one for England, James Vince should get another outing and we are going to select him as our pick. Accompanying him will be Eoin Morgan who returns after a one match ban pertaining to a slow over rate and Joe Root.

Pakistan sees us pick Babar Azam with him packing scored a century the last time around and Imam-ul-Haq.

All-Rounders for PAK vs ENG Dream 11

Having slumped to a precarious situation while chasing the last time around, something that was extremely pleasing to see from England was the way they showed valour and resolve to craft out a hard earned win. And responsible for that were Ben Stokes and Tom Curran with their 61 run partnership seeing England cruise to a win in the end. Ben Stokes becomes our pick with that inning behind him from England.

With a half-century at number three in the fourth ODI, its Hafeez from Pakistan who’ll be our pick for the encounter.

Bowlers for PAK vs ENG Dream 11

Tom Curran came up with an extremely significant and timely cameo the previous clash, showing that he has the ability to dwindle his bat around when needed. It’s this ability that sees us pick him along with Jofra Archer. There have been calls to include Archer in England’s world cup squad and the ECB will be looking to try him out one last time before they decide on their 15 man side for the event.

We wish we didn’t have to pick up anyone from Pakistan but the game requires us to have 4 of their players. There’s hardly anyone we see as an ideal choice, so pathetic have Pakistan been as a bowling unit and this sees us opt for Hasan Ali who still might have a chance of picking up a wicket or two.

Captain And Vice-Captain

We are reverting from type for this one and going in with a little different outlook for the match. James Vince will be our captain for the day with Joe Root being given the band of vice-captain.
