PAK vs ENG Dream 11 Prediction
Wicket-keeper for PAK vs ENG Dream 11
Jos Buttler vs Sarfraz Ahmed. Who would you choose?
The Man of the match from the previous game, Jos Buttler played in the top 5. He is a lucrative option but the catch is that he comes at 11 credits as opposed to the Pakistani skipper who comes at only 7.5 credits and can give you some points. He can help you invest heavily in other departments.
My Team 1 has Sarfraz as the captain and Team 2 has Jos Buttler as the captain. Based on who you pick here, you may have to alter a few bowlers and all-rounders to get in the best team.
Bowlers for PAK vs ENG Dream 11
Three bowlers will be common for both Team 1 and Team 2 while one bowler will have to vary based on who you pick as your wicket-keeper. Liam Plunkett will be my first pick. He has been regularly picking wickets and should give us many points. The fact that he bowls in the death adds weight behind his selection in my team. He might be rested tomorrow and Archer might be played. If that happens, bring in Archer.
David Willey will be my second bowler. He has been brilliant upfront and has picked up many wickets in the powerplay overs. Get him in for sure!
Pakistani youngster, Shaheen Afridi will be my next pick since he has been having a tremendous season with the ball. He has made the ball talk and his height gives him an added advantage as well. He may pick up quite a few wickets and hence, he needs to be in.
Now, if you have gone with Sarfraz Ahmed as your keeper, you have a lot of funds at your disposal and you must go for Hasan Ali as your last bowler in this match. Ali has always been lethal and his swing and pace could be difficult to play. His wicket-taking knack makes him a huge fantasy favorite.

If you are going with Buttler as your keeper, you have lesser funds and must go for Yasir Shah who just comes at six
credits. If he can pick up a couple of wickets, the risk you take will surely pay off.
All-rounders for PAK vs ENG Dream 11
If you go with Buttler as your keeper, budget constraints will force you to go with someone like Faheem Ashraf as your all-rounder for this game (Team 2). Ashraf bowls 10 overs and can give you some wicket points. He can also tonk the ball at the end to get a few runs.
If you have taken the plunge and gone for Sarfraz as your keeper, you can afford a world class death bowling all-rounder like Chris Woakes. Woakes will give you 10 solid overs which can get you quite a few wicket points especially at the death. He can also contribute with the ball down the order.
Batsmen for PAK vs ENG Dream 11
I go in with the same set of five batsmen for both the teams as I do not want to compromise on the batsmen considering they bring me the most amount of points. Joe Root is one of the most dependable batsmen in the world. Expect him to make a significant contribution in this match. I would be making him my captain.
Jason Roy will also walk into my team after a fantastic 80+ score in the last match. He scored quick and makes use of the powerplay which makes Roy a big asset for any team.
His opening partner, Jonny Bairstow, also makes my team on the back of some fantastic performances for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL and he also showed some great form in the last match against Pakistan. He needs to be in!
Pakistani opener Fakhar Zaman seems to be in a terrific touch. He scored 138 off 106 balls to almost take Pakistan to an improbable victory while chasing a high score like 373. He is going to be my vice-captain considering that momentum will be with him.
Fakhar Zaman’s average against the top-five teams in ODIs is 47.47 and strike-rate 91.28. Perhaps the only batsman in this team who bats according to the modern demands and does it against tough opponents too. #EngvPak

My last batsman here would surely be Babar Azam. He has been ever-consistent for the last few years. He would be raring to go and get Pakistan back on track in this series.
So which team will you go with? A team with a batsman of the calibre of Buttler but weaker bowler and all-rounder or a team with a weaker wicket-keeper but deadly bowlers like Woakes and Hasan Ali?
It’s your call at the end of the day. Happy picking!
