Here, it is! The Finals of the Women’s AfroBasket with both teams already clinching the two available spots for the Women’s Basketball World Cup. In this contest, heavy favorite Nigeria looks to repeat as champions versus resilient Mali. More about MAL-W vs NGR-W Dream11 is going to be imparted here.
Nigeria has won 22 games in a row in the African continent and has been too much for any team. The team plays a smash-mouth brand of basketball, not leaving any doors open from start to finish. Their main strength is the defense played by a host of athletic players and the team plays a well-balanced style of offense. The team enters as the favorite to claim the title
Mali escaped with a 52-51 victory against Senegal in the Semis but the team can piece together decent offense as well. The Mali women can exploit one weakness in the Nigerians and that is their propensity to turn the ball over. Mali has averaged 11.8 Steals per game and this is where Nigeria will need to be careful. Can Mali upset Nigeria to claim the title?
