WLO Vs SOW Dream11 Team Overview, Match Centre And Probable Playing 5: Anwil strive to better their third placed finish from last season
Falling short of the prestigious trophy of the Energa Basket Liga by the smallest of margins in the 2019-20 season, Anwil only had themselves to blame at the end of the day for their demise in the title race. Although the side registered four wins in its culminating five games in the exhibition competition, the one defeat in between to eventual champions Gora ended up being the defining moment in Anwil’s sortie.
It was a disappointing end to what had otherwise largely been a pristine campaign, one where Anwil had ended up thumping their opponents on a bevy of occasions. With 17 wins in the league, the side fell short of Gora by a meagre two points, a deficit they’ll be looking to overturn in this edition of the league.
The side gets its new season underway this Sunday with the team squaring off against Stal. After enduring an inconsistent season last edition, Stal managed to make massive strides and paper over the cracks shrouding the side all across the season by winning four of their last five games to nestle in 10th place.
While Anwil would have been touted as outright favourites for a win in their league opener today, the side’s massively changed identity sees that moniker be snatched from them. Amidst Coronavirus protocols, the side finds itself bereft of a slew of names who made it such an unstoppable juggernaut.
However, the side has managed to pick up the pieces and rope in some equally worldclass names to compensate for the holes left in the side. And while its still to be seen how these players move in cohesion, we envision the side clinking in its opening game itself to go onto register a win today.

WLO Vs SOW Dream11 Picks
Our Dream 11 side begins with the pick of Deishuan Booker from Anwil for the upcoming affair. A new entrant in the side’s starting rotations, his ability to control the centre of the court with his quick ball movements and layup dimes for his counterparts makes him a must have selection for us today.
Stal’s Przemysalw Zamojski will be ingrained in our side as the power guard for the day’s skirmish. Up against of the most well disciplined defences in the league, the player holds the potential to make life precarious for Anwil given his ability to utilise his handles to breach defences.
Stal’s Chris Smith is bestowed with a nous of attributes when its comes to lining up the treys. Not only that, he can backstep and use his crossovers to pull off offhanded shots as well, an expansive skill set which sees him become the first pick from the side.
He’s going to find company in Jakub Garbacz for the day’s scrimmage. Despite getting a little over 20 minutes the last time he took to the court, Jakub was responsible for 15 points, ones which came owing to his ability to shoot field points with a high conversion.
We begin this ambit of our Dream 11 side with the selection of Carlo Green from last season’s third placed side. The player will be tasked with the responsibility of maintaining his side’s resolve and resolute look as a defensive setup, one his innate ability to guard and steal will allow him to do.
Krzysztof Sulima will be his partner for the upcoming contest. He had a neat five points and four rebounds in the side’s culminating skirmish of the bygone season, one which alluded towards his well rounded nature as a player.
The opposition on the other hand will see us immerse ourselves in the pick of Jaroslaw Mokros after his 6 point and 4 rebound showing.
Shawn King will be wrapping up our set of picks for the forthcoming tie. Embedded with the nitty gritties needed to occult shots and protect his side’s rim, he’s a player capable of leaving any side’s attacking forays in tatters.
Booker’s ability to pull off both triples and layup the ball sees his be our star player for today while Jakub is the pro player.
