Eng vs Aus 2nd ODI Dream 11 Predictions : Dream 11 Statistics
Jos Buttler suffered a rare failure in the first ODI. He is one of those players who soaks the pressure and gets the team out of deep waters. A big innings is on the cards in the coming matches from the great man who will also assume the responsibility with the gloves. He has averaged 31.8 fantasy points in the last five games and delivered just 21 points in the 1st ODI.
Jonny Bairstow has finally come to the party after a string of bad performances that too when the team was in deep trouble. Even though there is a meek possibility of him donning the gloves, he has shown that he is a an and a quality cricketer. He delivered an astonishing 104 points in the last game and has provided 57.8 fantasy points in the last five games. He is a very reliable choice for the eleven.
The way the Australian board is backing Alex Carey, even after consecutive failures since last year, the wicket-keeper should consider himself lucky. There is a possibility of him warming the bench in the coming days but if he plays, he will have to deliver this time. He has managed 16.2 fantasy points in the last five games and delivered 23 points in last match.
It was time and again told that Sam Billings is a future prospect in the limited overs which he proved last night. The conditions were tricky with the ball not really coming on but stuck to his game and scored an amazing ton despite not on the winning side. He topped the fantasy points chart with 156 points and has averaged 71 points in the last five outings.
With Carey not performing up to the mark, there is a considerable possibility of Matthew Wade getting the nod in the second match. Wade is quite flexible to bat at any order and possesses the experience with the gloves. He has given about 30 fantasy points in the last five games and will be a slightly unreliable choice.
Josh Phillipe would’ve have hoped to get his international underway, but it seems that the young talent will have to wait for a little longer. He is someone who grabs the opportunities with both the hands just like he does with the gloves.
Eng vs Aus 2nd ODI Dream 11 Predictions : Batsmen
Aaron Finch wasn’t all comfortable in the first ODI and was looking to break the shackles but was done by a beautiful ball by Mark Wood. It was a one-off and the Australian captain is expected to lay a solid foundation for the team in the coming games. He delivered 23 fantasy points in the last game and averages 39.6 points in the last five matches.
The platform was yet again set for Eoin Morgan’s heroics but he failed to deliver after hitting a loosener straight to the mid-wicket fielder. He has recovered from the finger injury and will have to perform if England has to stay alive in the series. He has averaged 47.2 points in the last five games and delivered 39 points despite a failure.
It seems that David Warner was unlucky in the first game. He was totally undone by an unplayable jaffa of Jofra Archer. The left-hander hasn’t gotten back to his rhythm since the return to the sport and would be looking to silence his critics with a big knock on Sunday. He gave 18 points in the match and has delivered about 33.4 fantasy points in the last five clashes.
Joe Root has been going through a rough patch in all formats and didn’t look at his best even after a brief rest following the Pakistan series. If England has to win crucial games like the one on Sunday, it is important for someone like Root to play a match-winning knock. He has averaged 11.4 points in the last five outings and delivered just 7 points in the last game.
Jason Roy returned to the squad after suffering an injury for the first match. But he was nowhere near his explosive best and got out cheaply after scoring 3 runs. His spot in the squad is already under threat with Banton performing well in T20s. He delivered 5 points in the last game and has managed just 11.4 fantasy points in five games.
Steven Smith would be returning to the eleven after he was ruled out of the game as a precautionary measure with a blow to the head. With Smith around in the top 3, Australia will have the perfect candidate to play a responsible innings. He has delivered about 34 points in the last four games.
Marnus Labuschagne was found to be in good touch after starting off well but soon fell to a googly by Rashid. It is important for the team to back him as much as possible with a potential No.4 issue almost over. The Smith-Marnus combo might work in ODIs as well like it did in Tests. He provided 42 points in the last game and delivers an average of 53 points in five games.
England can try Tom Banton in place of Roy and see if it clicks for them at the top. He is a potential young talent who has been long talked off in the cricketing fraternity. He gives about 28 points per match and delivered 35 points in the last four games. On the other hand, Jon Denly would still be warming the bench as a reserve. He would be the luckiest if he gets to play in the ODIs.
Eng vs Aus 2nd ODI Dream 11 Predictions : All-rounders
Glen Maxwell has finally arrived to the scene after a string of low scores in the recent past. He played the match defining innings of 77 in just 59 balls that helped Australia to get a defendable score. He gave the second highest points of 121 and has averaged 36 points in the last five outings.
There is a high chance of facing the axe for Moeen Ali if he keeps underperforming. Even though he did a decent job with the ball going at 5.90, he didn’t stick around when the team needed him desperately. This poor run is reflected in his fantasy ratings as he has given an average of just 11.2 points in the previous five matches which included 10 points in the last game.
Mitchell Marsh played one of the sensible knocks of the year in the first game. All he did was rotate the strike that gave Maxwell the license to go big. He was also impressive with the ball taking the important wicket of Billings in the last ball of 50th over. He has averaged 61.2 points in the last five games and delivered a whooping 116 points in the first ODI.
Chris Woakes delivered a par performance with the ball but couldn’t play the big shots at the end that denied the victory. There is no doubt that he is a quality all-rounder who delivered 48 points in the last game and delivered 53 points in the last five games.
Marcus Stoinis was one of the unsung heroes of the first match. Despite wickets falling at the other end, he scored 43 off just 34 balls which included six fours. He laid the platform which the duo of Marsh and Maxwell capitalized on. He gave 53 points in the last clash and has provided an average of 25.8 points in the last five games.
Ashton Agar is a quality bowling all-rounder who can play a big hand on a pitch like Manchester where there was enough for the bowlers. The left-armer can play a part in taking wickets in the middle and can play big shots in the end. He gives about 39 points per match and gives 20 points once in two matches.
Sam Curran hasn’t had much of an experience in ODIs when compared to Tests. He has managed to play 4 matches, but yet to cement his spot in the white-ball squad. He provides about 19 points per game and has given an average of 31.75 points in the last 4 games.
Eng vs Aus 2nd ODI Dream 11 Predictions : Bowlers
Jofra Archer probably bowled the ball of the 1st ODI if not the ball of the series after Warner was cleaned up with a late swinging delivery. He added two more to his basket with Maxwell and Cummins falling prey to the big man. He gave 87 points in the last game and has averaged 37.6 points in the last five games.
Mitchell Starc bowled some peaches yesterday but was unlucky to go wicketless. He is a force to reckon with and is back to his best. He is ready to rattle the England’s top order in the coming matches. He has averaged 22.8 points in the last five games and gave 26 points in the first game.
With little assist from the pitch and a lot of ability, Adam Zampa returned with four wickets in the previous game. He is one of the best defensive spinners going around and makes the most of the conditions. He delivered 113 points in the last game and has averaged 49.8 fantasy points in the last five ODIs.
Pat Cummins had a forgettable day after going for 74 in ten overs. Even though he picked a wicket, Cummins would like to re group going into the second game. He has delivered an average of 49.4 points per match in the last five matches and delivered 37 points in the last game.
Josh Hazlewood bowled one of the best ODI spells of his career. He was known for his accuracy but wasn’t able to translate that to wickets. With just a little movement of the pitch under lights, Josh made a mess of the English line-up taking three wickets and giving away just 26 in ten. He gave 111 points in the last game and has averaged 52.6 points in last five outings.
Mark Wood has proven again as to why he is an integral part of this ODI squad. Coming in as the third pacer for the team, he dismissed Finch and Stoinis who were looking dangerous. He has the knack of picking wickets at key moments and remains a quality player. He gave 79 points in the last outing and has averaged 41.8 fantasy points in the last five ODIs.
Adil Rashid is one of those players who has consistently played a huge role in the team’s success. He took the important wicket of Marnus Labuschagne who was looking for a big score and got rid of Alex Carey without wasting any time. He is a reliable choice for the eleven who has provided 59 points in the 1st ODI and averages 54 points per game in the last five matches.
Nathon Lyon is doubtful of playing the next ODI with Zampa at his best. The off-spinner has the resources for the ODIs just like he has in the Tests but hasn’t got much exposure. He provides about 27 points per match and has delivered about 20.75 points per match in the last four games.
Kane Richardson is known for his variations and deceiving the batsman by changing the pace in the fag end of the innings. He is no less with the new ball who has taken 39 wickets in 25 games. Even though he has the potential, he has been a tad unlucky with other bowlers performing well for the team. He has delivered an average of 57.5 fantasy points in the last four games.
With the ball not coming on and a little bit for the slow bowlers, Andrew Tye will definitely come into the equation given his variations in the armory. He has also been equally good in the middle overs without conceding much and picking up important wickets. He provides about 43 points per game and has delivered an average of 32.5 points in the last four clashes.
