A two-paced wicket is on offer as seen in the previous games. While there will be spin for the likes of Rashid and Mujeeb, cloudy conditions will render the new-ball spell from the pacers pivotal in the context of how the match proceeds.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Both Shai Hope and Nicolas Pooran are great options to have in the side with their ability to score big runs already evident over the last few weeks. Although Ikram Ali Khil looks quite solid in the middle, his inability to score at a brisk rate makes him a liability.
Batsmen: Chris Gayle would love to sign off on a high with a substantial score against Afghanistan while the likes of Rahmat Shah and Ashgar Afghan are also decent options to have in the side. Shimron Hetmyer has a couple of fifties to his name, making him a viable alternative to Chris Gayle.
Allrounders: Jason Holder, Gulbadin Naib and Mohammad Nabi are the preferred allrounders with all of them in good form with bat and ball. Carlos Brathwaite, who has been in good form with the bat, is also a decent option if one were to alter the dynamics of squad with more established players.
Bowlers: The spin duo of Mujeeb ur Rahman and Rashid Khan is a must have in the team with the former expected to play a major part with the number of left handers in the West Indian side. One of Oshane Thomas or Sheldon Cottrell should suffice in rounding off the fantasy team for this game.
Captain: Chris Gayle and Mohammad Nabi are the ideal candidates considering their experience and talent. While Gayle is due for a big one this World Cup, Mohammad Nabi should pick a wicket or two against the left-handers of West Indies. Shai Hope is also a decent option to opt for along with Rahmat Shah.
