West Indies (Photo Source: Twitter) Match Details: The 2nd T20I of the three-match series between Afghanistan and West Indies will be played at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee International Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. The match starts at 7:00 PM local time & IST (1:30 PM GMT). It will be live on Star Sports. Live streaming will be available on Hotstar. Preview for Dream11 Fantasy West Indies got off to a great start in the T20I series against Afghanistan. They replicated their form of ODIs to the shorter format in a brilliant fashion. The best thing for the Carribean team was that their left-handed opener Evin Lewis looked in full flow, who amassed 61 runs off just 41 deliveries and he will look to continue with the same in the upcoming contest. Also, their middle-order batsmen Denesh Ramdin and skipper Kieron Pollard gave some valuable contribution that helped the team to post a competitive total on the difficult track and the same would be needed in the 2nd T20I. However, Brandon King, who got off to a poor start in his debut T20I game, would be eager to perform well in the next game. For Afghanistan, bowlers did a commendable job and stopped the heavy-duty batting line up of West Indies to a nominal score, who were finding it difficult to score runs against them. However, their batsman failed to utilise the opportunity in order to register their first victory on the tour. In the next contest, their top-order needs to come up and amass runs in bundles. Otherwise, they will have to face another defeat against a team that is ranked below them in ICC T20I ranking. Also, their star all-rounder, Mohammad Nabi is expected to hit his peach form. Weather Condition The temperature will vary between 16 and 28 Degrees Celsius according to the AccuWeather. Also, there are no chances of rain on Match Day. But, the air quality will be hazardous during the game. Pitch Report It will be a sporting wicket as far as T20I match is concerned. In the first few overs of the game, the pacers will get some swing from the wicket. But, later on, it will be most likely to go in favour of the spinners. Also, the team winning the toss will look to bat first on this surface. Average first innings score: 179 (In two T20Is played at the venue) Record of the chasing team: Won – 0; Lost – 2 Injury and Availability News: (Will be shared when there’s an update) Probable Playing XIs for Dream11 Fantasy Afghanistan Hazratullah Zazai, Rahmanullah Gurbaz (WK), Javed Ahmadi/Ibrahim Zadran, Najibullah Zadran, Asghar Afghan, Gulbadin Naib, Mohammad Nabi, Rashid Khan (C), Naveen-ul-Haq, Mujeeb Ur Rahman. Bench: Sharafuddin Ashraf, Sayed Shirzad, Yamin Ahmadzai, Karim Janat, Javed Ahmadi/Ibrahim Zadran West Indies Evin Lewis, Brandon King, Shimron Hetmyer, Denesh Ramdin (WK), Kieron Pollard (C), Jason Holder, Fabian Allen, Hayden Walsh Jr, Sheldon Cottrell, Alzarri Joseph, Kesrick Williams. Bench: Khary Pierre, Nicolas Pooran, Lendl Simmons Top Picks Evin Lewis scored a brilliant half-century in the first game and will be an exciting pick in the Dream11 Fantasy side. His young opening partner Brandon King, who didn’t get off to a good start in his debut match can also be a decent pick. For Afghanistan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman will be a key bowler, who has the ability to exploit the batting line-up of any opposition. He also looked effective in the previous game where he dismissed dangerous Brandon King. He can be a wise pick for your Dream11 Fantasy side. Captain and Vice-Captain Selection: Captain Options: Brandon King, Evin Lewis, Mujeeb Ur Rahman Vice-Captain Options: Shimron Hetmyer, Mohammad Nabi, Asghar Afghan Suggested Playing XI for Head to Head/Small Leagues for Dream11 Fantasy: Keeper – Rahmanullah Gurbaz Batsmen – Hazratullah Zazai, Evin Lewis, Asghar Afghan, Brandon King (C) All-Rounders – Mohammad Nabi (VC), Kieron Pollard, Gulbadin Naib Bowlers – Kesrick Williams, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, Rashid Khan Suggested Playing XI for Grand Leagues/Mega Leagues for Dream11 Fantasy: Keeper – Rahmanullah Gurbaz Batsmen – Brandon King, Evin Lewis, Hazratullah Zazai, Shimron Hetmyer (VC) All-Rounders – Kieron Pollard, Mohammad Nabi, Jason Holder Bowlers – Rashid Khan, Mujeeb Ur Rahman (C), Hayden Walsh Jr Expert Advice: Mohammad Nabi didn’t look in his top-notch form in the previous encounter, who went wicketless and got dismissed after scoring just 7 runs. But, his hard-hitting ability and spin bowling make him a vital pick for any team. However, he will be a player, who is worth taking a risk in the Grand Leagues. In Dream11 fantasy, 39% of the participants have picked Evin Lewis as the captain and Kieron Pollard is picked by 23% audiences as the vice-captain of their Dream11 Fantasy side. Probable Winners: West Indies are expected to win this match and seal the series. *Disclaimer: This team is based on the understanding, analysis and instinct of the author.
