ICC World Cup 2019: NZ vs PAK Dream11 Captain; Back Taylor, Babar, Williamson to go big

By Chaitanya Laxman

Pakistan and England are standing at the opposite ends of the spectrum in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019. New Zealand, with their clinical performances is at the brink of the semi-finals while Pakistan with their inconsistent run are almost knocked out of the tournament.

But lately, the tournament has come alive with some matches getting agonisingly close and hence there is plenty to expect from this match on Wednesday.

For the Dream11 Captain, these three players stand at the top.

#3. Babar Azam:

Babar Azam

Babar has got two fifties in five innings in this World Cup so far, but he is still to reach his potential. He looked pristine against Australia and India but failed to make a big knock.

Can he deliver against the pacy and swingy bowling attack of New Zealand?

Batting average in 2019: 50.28

Total number of hundreds in 2019: 1

Batting average in England: 42.44

Total number of hundreds in England: 1

Batting average against New Zealand: 31.40

Total number of fifties against New Zealand: 3

#2. Ross Taylor:

The New Zealand number four is in good touch in the recent times and has carried his form in the World Cup.  Taylor has done well against Pakistan in the past and hence he is a key threat for Pakistan.

Batting average in 2019: 66.08

Total number of hundreds in 2019: 1

#1. Kane Williamson:

Kane Williamson once again stamped his elegant presence at the world stage with a sensational hundred against Windies. Now he has two back to back centuries in this tournament and he is looking all set for a few more.
