Team 1 Recommendation: Mis-match between statistics and Dream11 Selections
There are 6 captaincy recommendations as it is almost impossible to predict which player will do well on a given day accurately. We have identified 2 players as dark horses. Making them captain involves high risk.
Team 2 Recommendation: In line with Dream11 selections
This is what players on Dream11 have selected and so is the average dream11 team.
Team 3 Recommendation: Highly Risky as not selected by many on dream11 nor the statistics are great
Recommendations are based on statistics available with us. Given the impossibility of predicting any player's behaviour, we would always recommend using some gut before making your team. Final team recommendations will be done after line ups are announced
Detailed Fantasy Points Statistics...
Jos Buttler is the preferred player to don the gloves in the eleven. He is also an explosive batsman who is flexible enough to bat anywhere in the order scoring heaps of runs for the team. With close to 4000 runs and over 200 dismissals behind the stumps, he will be a trump card. He provides about 45 points per game and delivers at least 30 points once in two games.
The second choice for the wicket-keeper job would be Jonny Bairstow. He has better numbers and records in ODIs when compared to the shortest format. Averaging over 45 and with more than 3000 runs, he gives about 47 points per game and delivers about 35 points twice in three matches.
Despite having a decent limited overs record, it seems that Alex Carey has disappeared after the last World Cup. The 29-year old is a solid middle order batsman who has played some terrific knocks in India but has failed to find his best recently. He gives about 40 points per game and delivers about 25 points once in three matches. He is a risky choice.
Sam Billings is the perfect choice for a backup wicket keeper in the side. He played some match winning knocks against Ireland in August but has failed to convert the 50s into 100s. He is also someone who strikes at close to 100 and a technically sound candidate. He gives about 31 points per game and gives about 20 points once in two matches.
Even though Matthew Wade is considered predominantly as a keeper, he has had his share of success with the bat. The only thing that comes in his way is that he doesn’t contribute as often as the team wants him to be with the bat. But he has a safe pair of hands and has lightning reflexes even at 33. He gives about 32 points per game and delivers about the same in three matches.
Josh Phillipe is a young prodigy who is hoping to get his debut cap in the ODIs. He is an exceptional talent who negotiates the new ball pretty well. There are chances of him playing at least one match in this series.
Eng vs Aus 1st ODI Dream 11 Predictions : Batsmen
Aaron Finch is one of the best top order batsmen going around. With close to 5k runs and 16 tons, he is sure to be part of the eleven. Even when the wickets keep tumbling, Finch takes the initiative and has won numerous matches for the team. He gives about 48 points per match and delivers at least 32 points twice in three matches.
The England team is in a spot bother after Eoin Morgan injured his finger which forced him out of the 3rd T20. But he has been the best ODI batsman of the last decade for England who has played 239 ODIs and having scored in excess of 7500 runs. He gives about 40 fantasy points per game and delivers 30 points once in two games.
If not for David Warner’s big starts in the ODIs, the Australia wouldn’t have chased big totals in the last five years. He has been one player who finds his form when it comes to the 50-over format. He delivers about 52 points per match and gives at least 35 points twice in three matches.
Joe Root is back in the squad after the Pakistan series following a small break. As claimed by everyone, Root is a whole different player when it comes to ODIs. He averages more than 50 and doesn’t struggle to convert his 50s into 100s. He is an ideal No.3 who gives about 54 fantasy points per game and delivers about 40 points once in two games.
Even though didn’t have a particularly good start to his ODI career, Steven Smith has come a long way to cement his No.3 position in ODIs. He is the perfect candidate to play the anchor role and delivers about 46 points per game and gives 30 points once in two matches.
Marnus Labuschagne is a star Test player but in the seven ODIs that he has played, he already has a fifty and a hundred along with an average of 50.83. He has adapted amazingly to this format scoring at 94.43 and could be the one to solve Australia’s middle order crisis. He delivers about 50 points per game and delivers 40 points in two games.
Tom Banton did perform well in the initial games but has lately been getting out to loose balls and loose shots. The young player should look to settle the nerves and play his natural way. He gives about 28 points per match and delivers about 20 points once in three outings.
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 1st ODI Dream 11 Predictions : All-rounders
Moeen Ali will be an effective choice when it comes to ODIs. He is someone who not only picks wickets in the middle overs but also plays the big shots in the death. He gives about 43 points per match and delivers about 30 points in two games.
Glen Maxwell is still one of the prominent all-rounders in the team. Even though he has nowhere near his best recently, his presence on the field can also help the team. With close to 3000 runs and 50 wickets in ODIs, he is a reliable choice. He gives about 47 points per game and delivers about 35 points once in three matches.
The return of Chris Woakes into the squad is a blessing in disguise for England. He is not only a quality pacer but also has four half centuries. He is a strike bowler and a regular feature in the ODI team. He gives about 54 fantasy points per game and delivers about 35 points twice in three matches.
We have seen the crucial role that Mitchell Marsh played in the final match for Australia. He is known for his batting exploits and can definitely play the fifth bowler fiddle well. He gives about 55 points per game and delivers at least 35 points in two games.
Ashton Agar will be a decent candidate to have in the team who bowls accurately and often provides crucial breakthroughs. He also plays the support role for Adam Zampa and is someone who can middle lower down the order. He provides about 39 points per match and gives 20 points once in two matches.
Marcus Stoinis is a better ODI player when compared to other formats. He averages more than 40 coming down the order and has picked up 33 wickets in 40 odd matches at 6.14. He gives about 54 points per game and delivers 30 points once in two games.
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 a small possibility of playing in the eleven.
Eng vs Aus 1st ODI Dream 11 Predictions : Bowlers
Jofra Archer was wonderful for England team in the 2019 World Cup who also happened to bowl the high-pressure super over. He has again proved his critics wrong by picking up wickets and going under 5 in the 50-over format. He gives about 44 points per game and delivers 25 points twice in three games.
There is no need for any introduction to one of the World’s best bowler currently. Mitchell Starc has turned several games into his team’s favor and a match winner with the ball. He gives about 53 points per game and delivers at least 35 points in two games.
Pat Cummins is another underrated ODI bowler. He has taken more than 100 wickets in just 60 games at an economy of just 5.16. He averages about 27.55 with his scramble seam deliveries effective in taking wickets. He gives about 43 points per game and delivers 28 points once in two games.
Adil Rashid has been an asset to the England team for breaking partnerships and controlling the run flow in the middle overs. He has all the variations and regularly picks up wickets who gives about 40 points per game and delivers about 30 points once in two games.
Mark Wood is a quality frontline bowler in the ODIs. He makes use of the new ball and often provides breakthrough in the first ten. He also has an excellent economy of 5.54 in 51 matches and is a good find for the team. He gives about 34 points per game and delivers 25 points twice in three games.
Adam Zampa has been an integral part of the Aussie squad as the lead spinner. A wrist spinner with his accuracy and control pushes the batsman to go for the big shot and gets him eventually. He gives about 35 points per game and delivers the same once in three games.
Josh Hazelwood has been very economical but has been unlucky on numerous situations because of no wickets. Despite all this he has 78 scalps at an economy of 4.75. He gives about 44 points per game and delivers 30 points in two games.
Nathan Lyon has been one of the best spinners in Tests. But he hasn’t been able to make his way through into the limited overs with young talent establishing themselves. He has 29 wickets in 29 matches and providing about 27 points per match along with delivering 20 points once in three matches.
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 and delivers 25 points in two games while delivering 42 points per game.
Andrew Tye hasn’t really been able to showcase his talent in the limited overs. The only thing that has gone against him is that he has been costly occasionally. He has all the weapons in the armory and is an effective death bowler. He provides about 43 points per game and delivers at least 26 points once in three games.
Saqib Mahmood hasn’t been part of the eleven after a poor effort against Pakistan finishing with a high economy rate and a wicket in three games. There’s a high chance of him not playing and is a high-risk choice. He provides about 36 points per match and delivers the same rarely.
