West Indies vs India 2019: 2nd ODI – Dream11 Fantasy League Tips, Predicted XI, Pitch Report & Injury Update
The second of the three-match ODI series between India and West Indies on August 11 (Sunday) at the Port of Spain in Trinidad will see both teams desperate for a win after a washout in the first game. With the series tied at 0-0, it will be pivotal to take the lead with only one more match to play after this.
West Indies had a poor outing in the ICC World Cup 2019 and will hope to redeem themselves in the ODIs. For that to happen, skipper Jason Holder will have to motivate his colleagues after a 3-0 snubbing in the T20Is. The batting unit has failed to apply themselves and rally behind the bowlers which has kept them away from the desired results. All eyes will be on Chris Gayle who is probably playing his last series in the fifty-over formats.
On the other hand, India will look to solve the middle-order problems they have been facing since the last three-four years. Shreyas Iyer, who has been good in the domestic circuit for India A and the IPL will audition for the spot. He will be keen to make a good mark and cement his place in the no four position. The players looked relaxed during the first ODI, which shows the confidence they have in themselves.
Here are Dream11 Fantasy League Tips:
First of all, it is crucial to select a team which has players who will surely play in the game. As they say in cricket, you don’t score any runs in the dressing room. Similarly, a player who is not playing cannot score points for you. Dream11 has brought a change in its rule by which you can alter your team even after the toss. Thus, you can pick your team according to the playing XI of both sides.
Secondly, it is pivotal to pick the right combination of captain and vice-captain. A captain gets twice the points whereas the deputy of the team will 1.5 times the points. Thus, it is imperative to select the big in-form players as your respective captain and vice-captain. It is also crucial to get top-order batsmen in the team as they are likely to score the significant chunk of the score. Furthermore, it is pivotal to check the pitch conditions and select the team accordingly.
There is no news of injury from both – India and West Indies camp.
