WI vs ENG Dream11 Prediction: West Indies and England will lock horns at Kensington Oval, Bridgetown, Barbados for the 3rd T20I. With series equaled at 1-1, this is the game that will decide the ultimate momentum in this 5 match series.
After winning the first game, West Indies didn’t capitalize on the changes in the 2nd T20I. Though the margin of defeat was just 1 run their batting looked miserable in most parts of the innings. West Indies bowlers have been in form and they have pushed England batters against the wall to avoid any big score. Also, they would be quite proud of their bowling with how it went in the death overs.
Probable playing XI: Brandon King, Shai Hope (WK), Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard (C), Fabian Allen, Jason Holder, Romario Shepherd, Odean Smith, Sheldon Cottrell, Akeal Hosein
After winning the 2nd T20I with the barest of margins possible, England must have found some confidence after a couple of gloomy months. However, they would also understand that the game should have been closed by them quite earlier. Also, England’s batting has not scored as freely as they would like and as strongly as their reputation suggests.
Probable Playing XI: Jason Roy, Sam Billings (WK), James Vince, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Eoin Morgan (C), Chris Jordan, Liam Dawson, Saqib Mahmood, Adil Rashid, Tymal Mills

Fabian Allen: Fabian Allen was a touch expensive in the last game but he picked up two important wickets. His role has usually been of a wicket-taker. He has also scored runs down the order at a brisk pace and should be a valuable player in the Fantasy team.
Kieron Pollard: Pollard tries to be involved in the game as much as possible during captaincy. He usually bowls 4 overs and bats at number 5. This gives him all the chances to score quite many Fantasy Points. He is a safe option to pick as Small League captain.

James Vince: James Vince has been known as a talented player and that’s why he has been given a chance to be at top of the order. He has looked confident in the previous matches and with time ticking away for him, we can expect an impactful knock. He can be one of the picks for the Grand League.
