West Indies vs Pakistan 1st ODI Preview, likely XI and other Info

Fixture: West Indies vs Pakistan, 1st ODI

Time/Date: 01:30 PM GMT/ 09:30 AM Local / 07 April 2017

Venue: Providence Stadium, Guyana

Here we will be talking about the possible scenarios of the match that could help the fantasy players such as Dream11 users to make their Dream team and help them win big.

Match and Pitch Condition

Weather: A Humid day with the temperature around 25-30°. Scattered clouds and a slight shower are also expected.

Pitch Condition: The pitch is expected to be low and slow and it has helped the spinners in past. In 2016, three ODIs were played here and the first innings score reads 189 (SA vs Aus), 116 (WI vs Aus) and 188 (SA vs WI) in the Tri-Nation series between these countries. Out of the 49 wickets fell in those 3 matches 31 were picked by spinners.

A score of 220 would be par score going by the recent nature of the pitch.

Probable Playing XI: (In the Batting order)

West Indies: Evin Lewis, Chadwick Walton, Kieran Powell, Shai Hope (wk), Jason Mohammed, Jonathan Carter, Jason Holder (c), Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo, Alzarri Joseph, Shannon Gabriel.

Pakistan: Ahmed Shehzad, Kamran Akmal, Babar Azam, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Sarfraz Ahmed (c/wk), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz, Hasan Ali.

Key Players

  • Spinners will play a big role in the outcome of the match. Shadab Khan, Imad Wasim, Ashley Nurse, Devendra Bishoo are the ones who are expected to play in the match.
  • The batsman who plays spin nicely might score big. Babar Azam, Shoaib Malik, Jason Mohammad are such names.
  • The pitch of Providence Stadium usually plays low so fast bowlers will also come into play.

 

My Dream11 pick

Since the pitch is expected to be more bowling friendly, pick around 4-5 bowlers and all-rounders who are primary bowlers. 3 wickets in ODI gives more point than a batsman scoring 50. So, on a slow and low pitch, the more the bowlers you have, the more chances are of gaining points in fantasy leagues.
