PAK vs ENG Dream11 Match Preview

England is on a tour of Pakistan for a 7-match T20I series. This series will be very important for both teams as they are looking to finalise their preparations for the T20 World Cup next month.  

Pakistan is in good form as a team. They were the runners-up of the recently concluded Asia Cup 2022. They have a strong squad with good balance and depth. The bowlers were in top form in the Asia cup. Mohammad Wasim’s return will strengthen the pace unit alongside Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah. Shadab Khan and Mohammad Nawaz are in excellent form with both bat and the ball. Mohammad Rizwan scored runs in almost every game of Asia Cup 2022. Babar Azam will look to regain his form in this series. Pakistan needs to bat with more intent and they will look to do that in this series.

Top Captaincy Choices for PAK vs ENG Dream11 Match

  • Mohammad Rizwan: Mohammad Rizwan will be Pakistan’s main batter in this series against England. He has been in terrific form and the onus of scoring the majority of the runs will be on his shoulders. He was the highest run-scorer of Asia Cup 2022 with 281 runs in 6 innings at an average of 56.20. He likes to hold one end and bat till the end. He can fetch plenty of points with his batting and wicket-keeping. Rizwan is the best captaincy option for this match.

  • Moeen Ali: Moeen Ali will be an ideal captaincy pick. He will bat in the middle-order and will bowl a few overs as well. Moeen has been in good form in the last few months and will be a key player for England on this tour. He is an aggressive batter and likes to play his shots. He is an excellent player of spin bowling and will look to take the Pakistani spinners. Moeen will lead the English side in Buttler’s absence and he’ll look to lead from the front. His all-round attributes make him a must-pick for this match. 

  • Babar Azam: Babar Azam had a horrible campaign with the bat in Asia Cup 2022 but he is a quality batter and will look to bounce back strongly, especially in his own backyard. He is currently one of the best batters in the world and can score big when he gets going. He will open the innings for Pakistan and will look to give his side a good start. Babar will be a top captaincy option.

 

Budget Pick for PAK vs ENG Dream11 Match

  • Naseem Shah: Naseem Shah was in excellent form in Asia Cup 2022. He bowled well, especially with the new ball and picked wickets upfront for his team. He will look to continue the same in this series as well. Naseem bowls at a very high pace and can trouble the batters with his pace and swing. He will be one of the key pacers for Pakistan and will be a good budget pick for your fantasy teams.

 

Differential Picks for PAK vs ENG Dream11 Match

  • Philip Salt: Philip Salt is expected to replace Jos Buttler in the eleven for England. Salt likes to play aggressively and will look to attack from the start. He will try to exploit the field restrictions in the power play. Salt has been in excellent form in recent times. He was the second-highest run-scorer of the Hundred (Men’s) 2022 with 353 runs in 10 innings at an average of 39.22 and striking at 152.81. Salt will keep the wickets as well and he will be the perfect differential pick for this match.

  • Sam Curran: Sam Curran is another excellent differential pick for fantasy cricket. He will bowl with the new ball and then in the death overs and will bat in the lower middle order for England. He was in top form in the recently concluded the Hundred (men’s) tournament. Curran will fetch points from both batting and bowling and will be a must-pick for this match.
