Dream11 Tips for this Match

  • The team I have suggested may not win surely, so try making at least 2-3 teams and include few players that I have missed in ‘My Dream11 pick’.
  • I could not include Tamim Iqbal due to fewer credits. So, include him in other teams.
  • Also, include Tamim Iqbal, Mushfiqur Rahim, Yuvraj Singh, Mustafizur Rahman, Masharfe Mortaza in some of your other teams.
