EN-L vs WI-L Dream11 team tips for Road Safety World Series 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
West Indies Legends’ Kirk Edwards will be a wise choice among batters. Analyzing the players listed in the batters’ list, none of them clicked in their respective matches. However, Edwards makes the cut with his attacking 19-ball 22 against Bangladesh Legends and is expected to capitalize on the knock in this clash.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Left-arm Orthodox spinner Sulieman Benn is the player to watch out for in this contest. He picked up 2 for 20 from his quota of four overs against Bangladesh Legends while also keeping the run rate in check. With England batters being fragile in their previous fixture, the 41-year-old will be looking to spin a web around the opponents to help the Windies win.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Nine-credit all-rounder Dwayne Smith is a no-brainer pick here. The opener was at his free-flowing best in the previous match and scored a 42-ball 51. Even though he bowled just one over, he can be anticipated to get more overs under his belt and give his team important breakthroughs.
Englishman Phil Mustard will be the popular choice among wicket-keepers here. The 39-year-old opened the innings for England Legends and gave them a steady start with a 21-ball 14. He was sharp behind the stumps and accounted for a stumping of Sri Lanka Legends’ star Tillakaratne Dilshan.
EN-L vs WI-L playing XI (probable)
England Legends: Ian Bell (captain), Phil Mustard (wicket-keeper), Mal Loye, Darren Maddy, Tim Ambrose, Dimitri Mascarenhas, Rikki Clarke, Chris Schofield, Stephen Parry, Chris Tremlett, Stuart Meaker
West Indies Legends: Dwayne Smith (captain), Dave Mohammed, Narsingh Deonarine, Kirk Edwards, Danza Hyatt, William Perkins (wicket-keeper), Sulieman Benn, Devendra Bishoo, Marlon Black, Krishmar Santokie, Daren Powell
