EN-L vs SL-L Dream11 prediction
After a blockbuster performance against Australia Legends, it would be fair to say that Sri Lanka Legends will start as favorites in this encounter. However, one cannot underestimate the England Legends team who boasts the likes of renowned players like Ian Bell, Nick Compton, and Dimitri Mascarenhas among many others.
EN-L vs SL-L Dream11 team tips for Road Safety World Series 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
Sri Lanka’s Dilshan Munaweera should be an ideal player to select from the batting section. The 33-year-old opening batter smashed an unbeaten 95 off 63 balls against Aussies, amassing 125 fantasy points in the process. Moreover, he costs only 8.5 credits, which is a fairly decent price considering his attacking prowess.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Among the bowlers, Sri Lanka’s Nuwan Kulasekara is an obvious pick. The pacer was no match to the Australian batting line-up in the previous match as he bagged 4 for 36 from his quota of four overs. Even though he was a bit expensive with an economy of 9, his haul of 150 fantasy points suggests he can be backed to come up with a similar performance against England Legends.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
All-rounders can prove to be multiplier choices for your fantasy teams and one all-rounder who should be in every fantasy team for this match is Tillakaratne Dilshan. As stated earlier, the fiery batter’s 56-ball 107 against Australia helped him get 171 fantasy points. Also, he is selected by approximately 98% of the fantasy players, making him the top pick for this match. Interestingly, he topped the scoring and wicket-taking charts in the previous edition of the Road Safety World Series and has started this campaign from where he left off.
Englishman Phil Mustard will be a wise choice from the wicket-keeper section for the vast T20 experience he boasts. He has scored 4229 runs in 192 matches.
