ICC World Cup 2019: AFGH vs WI Dream11 Captain; Expect Pooran, Gayle and Naib to make it big


Afghanistan and Windies are lying at the end of the points table in the ongoing ICC World Cup. Afghanistan have lost all their matches and have looked extremely sloppy in all departments. On the other hand, Windies showed spark on numerous occasions but have failed to finish off close matches.

Both teams will want to finish their World Cup campaign on a high note and thus a thriller can be expected on Thursday. For the Dream11 captain watch out for these three top players as they are in prime form.


#3. Nicholas Pooran:

A spectacular hundred in the previous match has brought Pooran in the limelight once again. Immensely talented and courageous, Pooran can change the momentum of the game with his lusty blows.

He can be a crucial asset for Windies to neutraliser Afghanistan’s spin threat.

Total runs in 2019: 309

Total hundreds in 2019: 1

#2. Gulbadin Naib:

The Afghanistan skipper made a strong statement by promoting himself at the top of the batting order and has scored crucial runs. At the same time, he has been Afghanistan’s most important spinner in this World Cup.

#1. Chris Gayle:

A lot was expected from Chris Gayle in this World Cup but he hasn’t delivered so far. He has got a couple of good knocks but hasn’t set the stage on fire.

Can he make a big one against Afghanistan and finish the World Cup with positive memories?
