Afghanistan vs West Indies: With nothing to lose, Afghanistan will push the boundaries against West Indies

In the past few matches, Afghanistan has been rather well performing but luck has not been on thier side. They have lost every single match they played this tournament- mainly because the batters and bowlers are unable to keep up with the competition from the other teams.

Their middle order is something that needs to be worked upon. However, since they have no chance of going forward in the tournament, it is likely that many changes will be made.

As for West Indies, they will try to psychologically thwart Afghanistan’s efforts. The team also has little chance of going ahead with the tournament but they will also put their best foot forward.

Both the bowling and batting department in the West Indies team is rather strong. Their batters are some of the best in the world, but they have not been able to perform well and in sync with the rest of the team. As for the bowlers, they have not made use of the pitch well and that is why they are in their current state.

Afghanistan vs West Indies: Dream 11 top picks

The Afghanistan side does have some great players but are the underdogs in the tournament. From the team, you should pick Hazratullah Zazai, Rashid Khan and Gulbadin Naib. They have a great synergy with the rest of the team and are as consistent as can be. This time, they aim to take the team to new heights.

Over to the West Indies side, they too have some great players. From their team, it would be wise to pick Shai Hope, Sheldon Cottrell and Nicholas Pooran. They are consistent performers in the game and will look to win today's match as it is a do or die situation for their team.
