Fantasy Cricket Tips, Captain and Differential Pick :

Captain Options :

Joe Root : He has been in top form in Test cricket this year as he has scored 794 runs at 66 plus and has also scored three hundreds and two of them were double hundreds and coming with a few good innings in county cricket as well so he has form with him and should score big runs.

James Anderson : He is getting better day by day and this year he has 14 wickets at 12 odd and all wickets came in Asian conditions and in these familiar home conditions he will be a tough bowler to face and at Lord’s he has taken 103 wickets at just 23 plus avg.


Differential Pick :

Tim Southee : He is New Zealand’s main Test bowler right now and from last 12 months he is bowling well as he has taken 94 wickets in his last 20 Tests and down the order a handy batsman as well and in England he has taken 20 wickets in 5 Tests.

ENG vs NZ Dream11 Prediction :


BATSMEN: Kane Williamson, Joe Root, Rory Burns, Ollie Pope
BOWLERS: James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Kyle Jamieson
