WI-U19 vs AU-U19 Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
P.Rowe (Price 8) and L.Julian (Price 9) have been decent throughout the tournament and would like to play a good knock again for the team in this last game of the tournament.
WI-U19 vs AU-U19 Dream11 Batsmen
- M. Harvey (Price 9.5):- Harvey is a very solid player for Aussies with the bat. He would like to play a big knock again and to help his team finish at 5.
- S.Fanning (Price 9):- Fanning was brilliant in the last game on a tricky batting track and would want to play a good knock in Benoni too.
- K.Melius (Price 10):- Melius is the captain of the West Indies team and he is their best batsman technically. He isn’t having a good tournament according to his standards but he will certainly be a good pick in this pressure game.
- K.McKenzie (Price 8.5):- McKenzie has been better than most of the Windies batsmen and he has just played a couple of games. He looked decent in both of them.
[We have picked Melius over Anderson only on their technical ability]
WI-U19 vs AU-U19 Dream11 All-Rounders
N.Young (Price 9.5) and T.Sangha (Price 10) will be our all-rounders as they both have been their team’s best players. Sangha has proved his mettle with the bat too in the last game as he was never a doubt with the ball. Young has also been good in both the departments.
WI-U19 vs AU-U19 Dream11 Bowlers
A.Nedd (Price 9) and J.Seales (Price 8.5) will be in our squad as they both have been in very good form in the tournament and will carry the burden of leading the West-Indian bowling line-up. Seales has 9 wickets to his name whereas Nedd has 10.
C.Sully (Price 9) has also been a decent bowler for the Aussies. He can play some cameos with the bat too.
[Bowling hasn’t been great for Aussies apart from Sangha whereas Nedd and Seales are the main bowlers of West Indies]
Match Prediction: West Indies U19 are the favourites to win this game as they have played better cricket than Australia and the track here will assist him too.
