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 better and help them win big.

Weather and Pitch Report

Weather: There are 20-25% chance of showers during the most part of the game so it might have some affect on the match. The overcast is likely to help the bowlers.

Pitch Report: Batsmen found it hard to score runs in the first match as the pitch was slow and stayed low. Same kind of pitch can be expected again and if the game is played on the same pitch, it might be even more helpful for the bowlers.

Team News

West Indies:

  • Looking at the help spinners got from the pitch in the first match, they are likely to bring in Devendra Bishoo in place of a fast bowler. Alzarri Joseph or Miguel Cummins are the likely ones to make way for him.
  • Rest of the squad is likely to remain same.


  • They might go unchanged as they won the last match quite comfortably.

Probable Playing XI: (In the Batting order)

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

Afghanistan: Noor Ali Zadran, Javed Ahmadi, Rahmat Shah, Asghar Stanikzai (c), Samiullah Shenwari, Mohammad Nabi, Gulbadin Naib, Afzar Zazai (wk), Rashid Khan, Amir Hamza, Dawlat Zadran.

  • At the options where players are separated by slash ‘/’, the first player mentioned is the more likely to play.
