UAE vs WI Dream11 prediction for 3rd ODI 2023

Led by captain Shai Hope, West Indies will head into the final ODI encounter brimming with confidence, having taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Twin fifties from openers Brandon King (64) and Johnson Charles (63) powered the visitors to 306 in the second ODI. Later, an all-round bowling performance helped West Indies restrict UAE to 228/7 in their allotted 50 overs and register a comprehensive 78-run victory in Sharjah.

Earlier, Shai Hope’s men won the first ODI by seven wickets at the same venue.

Going by recent form and team combination, West Indies will start as overwhelming favourites to record a whitewash over UAE on Friday.

UAE vs WI Dream11 team tips for 3rd ODI 2023

Top tip: Best batter

West Indies’ opening batter Brandon King has been in scintillating form in the ongoing ODI series. The 28-year-old smashed his maiden ODI hundred in the opening clash, having scored run-a-ball 112. He later followed it up by slamming a fifty in the second ODI. King has already amassed 176 runs in two matches at an impressive strike rate of 96.70. At just 8 credits, Kings is a must-have fantasy pick for the final match.

Top tip: Best bowler

In the bowling department, UAE’s Zahoor Khan could be a smart pick at just 6.5 credits. The right-arm pacer is currently the leading wicket-taker in the series. Zahoor has picked up four wickets at an average of 19. He could once again play a pivotal role for the hosts in the third ODI. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

As far as all-rounders are concerned, Ali Naseer of UAE will be the preferred choice. Ali Naseer has been the standout player for the hosts against West Indies in the ongoing series. Naseer has hit consecutive half-centuries, having played as a finisher. He has been the highest run-getter for UAE this series, having accumulated 115 runs. Apart from his batting credentials, Naseer has also bagged two wickets in the series. At 6.5 credits, the UAE all-rounder will be a great investment.

For the wicket-keeper spot, WI skipper Shai Hope will be the fantasy recommendation over Aryansh Sharma of UAE. Apart from fulfilling his wicket-keeping and captaincy responsibilities, Shai is also a match-winner with the bat. Hope has scored 36 runs in the first two ODIs and is due for a big score. Having accrued 72 fantasy points, Hope will be a valuable addition to any fantasy team at 9 credits.
