POL-W vs IND-W Dream11 Team: After getting off to a terrific start against Uruguay, India look to continue put down Poland to ensure semi-final berth
Poland Vs India FIH Women’s Series Final Best Dream 11 Team
Coming into the tournament as the highest ranked side, India were always expected to be frontrunners for the leg of the FIH Series Final being held in Japan. However, the way they blew past Uruguay on Saturday, decimating them 4-1 in their tournament opener only went onto reaffirm their status as frontrunners.
It was not just the win but the manner in which it came about for India which would have made the contingent extremely happy. They decimated the PAHF side, rendering them redundant with a clinical pefromance that saw defender Kaur and striker Rani function at their exemplary best.
However against Poland, India know they are going to face a sterner test. The Polish outfit made the most of their first match of the tournament, sparing no expense in piling on the goals against Fiji, the lowest ranked unit in the marquee tournament at 44. It this narrative which is set to see this match be a high scoring one, an encounter where the goals will be piled on given the attacking extradonaire might we have on both sides.
Registering immense wins in their respective matches on Saturday both these units are heading into this pivotal encounter having garnered immense momentum. A clash between the two highest world ranked sides in Pool A, this match is going to shape up how the pool eventually ends with the winner most certain to earn a direct qualification spot into the semi-final.
Under Marijne’s guidance, India have seen a colossal growth in the women’s hockey arena. They are the perfect blend of experience and young players, a side which executes its attacking gameplan to perfection each and every time they step out onto the park. We see them resonating their stellar performance on Saturday and putting down Poland today as well.
Goal-Keeper for POL-W vs IND-W Dream11
We’ve decided to indulge into the Polish pick for this part of our Dream 11 side. Kucharska’s proposition of facing a barrage of goals is bound to see her amass a good haul of points and we are going to indulge our line-up into those.
Defenders for POL-W vs IND-W Dream11
The one player who was adamantly on our mind even before we had started crafting our side for the day was India’s Gurjit Singh in defence. Her involvement in the penalty corners along with her more than steady offing at the back see her come in with a second thought for us. Nisha will partner her for this encounter.
We’ve decided to pick up the two players from Poland as well. Their cleansheet against Fiji along with resolute nature of play means that they will pose a tepid challenge to India and it’s the tackle points we are eyeing from this pairing of Rybacha and Martyna.
Midfielders for POL-W vs IND-W Dream11
It’s going to be another duo of Indian players in the centre of the park with Goyal and Malik coming in for us. They reposed the faith we accorded in them and we are going to imbed our side with these two astute midfielders yet again. The lone pick of Strubbe from Poland wraps up not only this component of our side but also the picks from Poland.
Forwards for POL-W vs IND-W Dream11
With captain Rani scoring a bunch of goals against Uruguay and Kaur and Katariya patterning her up perfectly, India made a spectacle to watch in the attacking department. What particularly left us impressed was the way in which they scored those goals, ripping apart Uruguay’s defence to earn a slew of plaudits. The entire trio is going to be a part of our side against Poland.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We’ve shuffled the picks for this match with Kaur our captain for this encounter while Rani has been chosen as the vice-captain.
