WI-U19 vs SA-U19 Dream11 Wicket-Keepers
L.Beaufort (Price 8.5) has been brilliant throughout the tournament. He bats at number 4 and is a very technical player. He should be the clear pick.
WI-U19 vs SA-U19 Dream11 Batsmen
- J.Bird (Price 10):- Bird has played 2 really good knocks in the tournament. He still hasn’t shown his full potential till now and will be eager to play a bigger knock in this game.
- 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 played a wonderful knock of 99 in the last game and would like to make it big in this game too.
[We have picked Melius over Anderson only on their technical ability]
WI-U19 vs SA-U19 Dream11 All-Rounders
B.Parson (Price 9.5) and T.van Vuuren (Price 8) would be the all-round picks from Proteas. Parsons has been absolutely fantastic in this tournament with both and ball whereas Vuuren has been a decent bowling option too and he can bat as well in the lower order.
N.Young (Price 9.5) has won 2 Man of the Match titles in 3 games. He has been impressive with both bat and ball. He is the best pick as an all-rounder and M.Forde (Price 9) has also been quite decent with the ball and can take advantage of the pitch.
WI-U19 vs SA-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 is the 10th highest wicket-taker of the tournament with 8 wickets to his name whereas Nedd bowled brilliantly in the last game.
A.Cloete (Price 9) has been the best bowler for Proteas till now. The bowling line-up hasn’t done well but he has been the best amongst the worst.
Match Prediction: West Indies U19 are the favourites to win this game as they have played better cricket than West Indies and the track here will assist him too.
