Match Preview for Dream11 Fantasy
England Under-19 didn’t have a great World Cup as they are still due to taste their first win in the ongoing tournament. They are already knocked out from the knockout race. However, England colts will look to end their campaign on a high note with a win in their final group game. Ben Charlesworth has done an impressive job with the bat for his side. He has amassed 118 runs in two games with one fifty and the right-handed batter would look to replicate the same in the upcoming clash against Nigeria colts.
In bowling, Lewis Goldsworthy has performed brilliantly and he is currently the leading wicket-taker for his side. Nigeria Under-19 have nothing to lose but everything to gain. They have struggled in every department of the game. Neither their bowlers have impressed nor batsmen in the ongoing tournament. It will be the last opportunity for the Nigerian colts to come up with some impressive performances. Looking forward to their form, the chances are quite slim that they will cross the winning line against England Under-19.
There are 58% chances of rain on the matchday and it might also affect the length of the match. The wind is expected to blow at a rate of 30 to 33 km/hr whereas the temperature might hover between 18 and 29 Degree Celsius throughout the day according to Accuweather.
The pitch at the Diamond Oval in Kimberley is expected to offer a balanced battle between bat and ball. If fast bowlers hit the right areas then they will certainly get the reward but batsmen will have an even chance to smash them during the match. The side winning the toss will look to field first as far as the trends of the tournament are concerned.
