Pakistan Team News

Even though Pakistan won the first T20, they didn’t have the kind of game they’d have wanted to have against a second string South African side. Despite a fine century from Mohammad Rizwan, the hosts could only manage a score of 169 on the board which later went on to defend by 3 runs.

They don’t have to change too many things in order to have a perfect game though. They will probably go with an unchanged side for this match or at most, Hasan Ali may come in the side for one of the pacers, possibly Haris Rauf.

  • Mohammad Rizwan
  • Babar Azam

With a series on stake, losing which they would lose their first series to Pakistan, they would have an extra motivation to go one level up and get the result in their favor.

Pakistan vs South Africa 2nd T20 Pitch Report

Often the Lahore wicket is considered flat and it is a heaven for the batsmen, we saw it providing assistance to the spinners in the first game. With not enough time to work on the pitch, it should get even more slower which will mean spinners would come into picture lot sooner and play a lot more significant role. If you want to make a perfect team at Dream11, make sure to have a good combination of spinners and batsmen in your team.

IND vs ENG Dream11 Team

India vs England Preview

After humbling India in the first Test, England would be riding high on confidence as they gear up for the second Test against the hosts in Chennai. The hosts, i.e, India, called the defeat as one off and promised to bounce back from the situation. The second one is going to be as exciting an affair as it can get and for that, we present you the best IND vs ENG Dream11 Team, playing 11 and pitch report.

  • Match Venue : MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai
  • Match Time : 09:30 AM IST | 04:00 AM GMT

India Team News

After an Australia series win high, India were humbled in the first Test in the familiar conditions and it shows what a leveler this game of cricket is. They ended up being on the wrong side of the toss where England just piled up runs on the flat first 2 days pitch. BCCI has sent off that pitch curator and the pitch for this test has been prepared by a different curator and it is expected to turn from Day 1 which will help India irrespective of the result at toss.

For India, Shahbaz Nadeem will make way for Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav will finally get a game for Washington Sundar. Since, Axar can already bat at 7, they wouldn’t need Sundar’s batting skills which is why they can afford to play Kuldeep in this match.

Players to pick from India

  • Cheteshwar Pujara
  • Virat Kohli
  • Shubman Gill
  • Rishabh Pant
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • R Ashwin
  • Ishant Sharma

England Team News 

England has been hit by an injury yet again before this match. Jofra Archer has been ruled out of this match. James Anderson has been given rest from this match as he has played 2 consecutive Tests and now it’s the turn of Stuart Broad who last played against Sri Lanka in the first Test.

Surprisingly, Dom Bess who picked 6 wickets in the first Test has been dropped too and he gets replaced by Moeen Ali while Ben Foakes replaces Jos Buttler who has gone home and won’t take any further part in this series. The issue is who will replace Archer – Chris Woakes or Olly Stone and Stone looks like for like replacement as he can bowl quick like Archer but the batting skills of Woakes may tempt Joe Root & management to play him. It’s a call England will take at the toss.

Players to pick from England

  • Ben Foakes
  • Joe Root
  • Jack Leach
  • Ben Stokes

Other Fantasy options from both sides

England : Olly Stone, Moeen Ali

India : Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah

India vs England Pitch Report

This Chepauk pitch looks brownish, which means the ball here will turn from day 1 unlike the first test where there was nothing for the bowlers on first two days. If the pitch plays by the looks, it might be difficult seeing a high scoring game although English spinners are slightly less skillful compared to Indians. Ashwin and Kuldeep will come in handy for India. This pitch is close to what we call a ” rank turner “.
