WI vs BAN Dream11 team tips for Bangladesh tour of West Indies 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
Bangladesh ODI captain Tamim Iqbal will be the batter to watch out for. The 33-year-old opener is Bangladesh’s all-time highest run scorer in ODI cricket, amassing 7,826 runs in 225 matches at an average of 36.74 including 14 centuries and 52 fifties. At 9.5 credits, Tamim Iqbal is the must-have fantasy pick for this match.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Among the bowlers, West Indies’ Alzarri Joseph could be the standout pick in the first ODI. The right-arm pacer has had an impressive ODI career so far, having picked 77 wickets in 47 ODI matches at an economy of 5.29. Joseph troubled the Bangladesh batters in the two-match Test series, claiming 12 wickets at an average of 16.26. Joseph is a worthy fantasy pick at 9 credits.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, Bangladesh’s Mehidy Hasan will be the preferred choice. The 24-year-old all-rounder has scored 570 runs and bagged 64 wickets in 58 ODI matches that he has featured so far. Mehidy Hasan has accrued 70.6 fantasy points per match and will be a great pick at 9 credits.
For the wicket-keeper spot, in-form Nicholas Pooran will be the overwhelming choice over Bangladesh’s Nurul Hasan. Apart from fulfilling his wicket-keeping responsibilities, Pooran finished as the highest run-getter in the T20I series, scoring 108 runs in three matches at an impressive strike rate of 156.52. The West Indies captain will be a valuable addition to any fantasy team at 9.5 credits.
