📅 When14th June, Friday
📍 WhereSouthampton

Battle of the Big Dogs!

West Indies have been in good knick. Even though have been going through a rough patch with their problems with administration and in-team arguments, they have really come up together and are looking like a formidable side to beat.


Their first game against Pakistan was brutal where they restricted Pakistan to 105 and chased it down pretty easily. Although, they got handed over a close defeat at the hands of Australia in their 2nd game while their 3rd game was washed out.

Strengths: Bat deep.
Weaknesses: One spinner in Nurse who hasn’t really made an impact yet.\


On the other hand, England is looking solid as ever, winning 2 out of their 3 games and scoring 300+ score each time. Good news for England is that Jos Buttler is fully fit to play after sustaining a thigh injury during England’s last game against Bangladesh. Moeen Ali is also set to return to after he had taken a break to attend the birth of his second child.

Strengths: Solid all-round side.
Weaknesses: Economy of Woakes and Adil Rashid.


WeKnowCricket Hot Take 🔥

The pitch at Southampton is not nearly as green as seen during the England-Bangladesh match. Which means that spin can play a role. Our suggestion would be to bring back Moeen Ali and play him along Adil Rashid. This means that either of Plunkett or Woakes have to sit this one out. Plunkett has been England’s most economical bowler in the tournament to date, conceding only 4.86 runs per over on average – with 3 wickets at an average of 24.33. Meanwhile, Chris Woakes has been England’s most expensive bowler, conceding 7.71 runs per over and taking 3 wickets. Our money is on Woakes getting the bench.

ENG vs WI 2019: Pitch Report ⛅


Less grass on the pitch means it would be helpful for spinners. The ground is comparatively larger, hence the chances of a high scoring game is less. However, both teams are batting behemoths so one can never be sure.

ENG vs WI World Cup 2019 Dream11 Team Prediction and Suggestions 🧠


Wicket Keeper: There are 4 potential wicketkeepers to choose from. Since new Dream11 rules allow you to pick all 4, you can pick either Hope, Bairstow, Buttler, or Pooran. We are picking Hope and Bairstow as both bat up the order.

Batsmen: Roy hit a 150 in the last game and is our first pick. Root, Gayle, and Lewis will complete our Dream11 batting order.

All Rounders: Holder and Russell are one of the best allrounders in the world along with Ben Stokes. This is the reason you have to pick only 3-4 batsmen as there are a lot of all-rounders on both sides.

Bowlers: Plunkett has a great average and is our first pick. Cottrell is wicket-taker and deserves a spot in the squad. Complete your squad with either Adil Rashid or Archer.


ENG vs WI World Cup 2019 Dream11 Team Suggestion #1:

Hope(wk), Bairstow(wk), Root, Gayle, Roy, Holder, Stokes, Cottrell, Hetmyer, Rashid, Plunkett.

Captain: Root, VC: Holder
