Shai Hope: He has recently recovered from injury and has a good record in sub-continent conditions and can fetch you good points in your fantasy team. He scored 77* runs in the last match.
Jason Holder: Ex-Skipper Holder is an attacking batsman and lethal pace bowler. He was deadly in the powerplay the last match taking two crucial scalps.
Roston Chase: Spin all-rounder Chase is a reliable middle-order batsman and economical spinner. He scored 94 runs and struck twice in the last match.
Keiron Pollard: Skipper can score quick runs and can also bowl a few overs of medium pace. His recent form is brilliant and will be a must-pick in AFGH vs WI Dream11 team. He did not get a chance to perform with bat or ball in the first ODI.
Nicholas Pooran: He is a very talented batsman and has a habit of playing big knocks at an attacking strike rate. His recent form is also good and is a better player of spin as compared to his teammates.
Evin Lewis: Lewis is a very attacking batsman and will lead the Windies batting line-up from the front. He performed well in the last series against India but can find it challenging to tackle the early spin of Mujeeb like in the previous match where he got out on 7 runs.
