West Indies vs Ireland – Must-Have Picks for your Fantasy Lineup on Dream11

West Indies

Shai Hope

Shai Hope has been one of the shining stars for the West Indies Lineup, who are clearly in a phase of transition. In his 5 ODIs last year he scored 310 runs which included a century and 2 fifties. Another reason to pick Shai Hope in your fantasy lineup is that he can also slot in as a wicket keeper and that will result in more points for you.

 

 

Alzarri Joseph

A great reason to pick Alzarri in your lineup, is that he has a great record against Ireland. In his 3 ODIs against them he has picked up 8 wickets. Talking about his form, he has picked up at least a wicket in each of his last 7 ODIs (total 12 wickets) and thus fantasy points are guaranteed with him.

 

 

Akeal Hosein

Another bowler who is in great form is Akeal Hosein. With 10 wickets in his last 5 matches, he has a lot of good momentum heading into this game.

 

 

Kieron Pollard

One of the veterans of the West Indies, Kieron is good with the bat and the ball, and although he has been in a bit of a patchy phase of form, you will want to have him in your lineup as he can spring about a big performance as an all-rounder and that will bring in a crazy haul of points.

 

 

Ireland

Harry Tector

Ireland have not been in the richest vein of form but that doesn’t mean they have not had great performers. Tector has scored 226 runs in his last 5 ODIs and that means he will be helpful in collecting those much needed points for your fantasy lineup.

 

 

Andy McBrine

You will want to have McBrine on your lineup because of his impressive record against West indies. In the last 4 ODIs against the Windies, Andy has picked up 6 wickets. We expect him to scalp a few more in this series as well.

 

 

Simi Singh

He has been one of the best players for Ireland in 2021. In his 13 matches he scored a total of 280 runs and also took 19 wickets. In his 3 ODIs against West Indies, he had scalped 6 wickets and also scored a useful 49 runs.

 

 

Curtis Campher

Curtis is only 10 ODIs old in his cricket career, but in those matches, he has been absolutely impressive. Having scored 359 runs and scalped 8 wickets in these ODIs, we fully expect Curtis to give us a huge points haul as the series progresses.
