WI vs BAN Dream11 team tips for Bangladesh tour of West Indies 2022
Top Tip: Best batter
West Indies will count on Kyle Mayers to produce the runs for the hosts against Bangladesh in the first T20I. The 29-year-old helped the Windies to a 10-wicket win in the recently-concluded second Test against Bangladesh with a composed 146 and will look to carry the form into the 20-over format where he is expected to open the batting. Mayers’ price has been set at 9.0 credits.
Top Tip: Best bowler
Among the bowlers, Bangladesh pacer Mustafizur Rahman will look to trouble for the new-look West Indies batting order. The 26-year-old fast bowler has pocketed 87 wickets in 63 matches, including 15 scalps in seven meetings against the West Indies. One of the best left-arm bowlers in limited-overs cricket, Mustafizur is a worthy fantasy pick for this match at 9.0 credits.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, Bangladesh star Shakib Al Hasan will be the overwhelming choice. Shakib has amassed 1908 runs and 119 wickets in 96 matches and is 92 runs away from becoming the second Bangladeshi to reach 2,000 T20I runs behind Mahmudullah. The seasoned all-rounder, a proven match-winner, is available for a premium value of 10 credits.
For the wicket-keeper spot, West Indies’ Nicholas Pooran pips Liton Das of Bangladesh. Pooran has scored 1,193 runs in his T20I career while registering 33 dismissals (28 caught, five stumpings) while Liton Das has 917 runs and 22 dismissals (21 caught, one stumpings) to his name. The new Windies T20I skipper will be a good fantasy pick at 9.5 credits.
