Dream11 Fantasy Team for 1st ODI
Shai Hope is our first-choice wicketkeeper batsman. He is West Indies’ best ODI batsman and has scored 502 runs in his last 7 matches at an average of 71.71 and a strike rate of 80.83. Alex Carey fills our second slot, with 208 runs in his last 8 ODI innings at 34.67 and a strike rate of 92.44.
Aaron Finch with 432 runs from his last 8 ODI innings at 54.00, with a strike rate of 80.44, is our first-choice batsman. Evin Lewis makes the grade, having scored 283 runs in his last 4 ODI innings at 70.75, with a strike rate of 87.34. We have picked Henriques as our third batsman on the back of his form in the recent T20 series where he had a few good starts.
Jason Mohammed has proved to be a more than useful addition to West Indies’ ODI squad with 8 wickets in his last ODI games at an economy rate of 4.10 and a strike rate of 31.50. Mitchell Marsh is the other all-rounder in our dream11. We have selected Marsh on the back of his brilliant form in the recently concluded T20I series, in which he took 8 wickets matches and scored 3 fifties in 5 games.
Alzarri Joseph has been the most successful bowler for West Indies recently, with 16 wickets in 10 matches, while maintaining an economy rate of 4.59 and a strike rate of 36.75. Adam Zampa is our second-choice bowler. In his last 8 ODI matches, Zampa has taken 20 wickets at an economy rate of 5.10 and a strike rate of 23.40. Josh Hazlewood has taken 14 wickets in his last 8 games, with an economy rate of 4.75 and a strike rate of 33.85. Starc has been one of Australia’s best bowlers across formats, though he has not played an ODI since November 2020.
