Match Details of NSW-XI vs EN-A Dream11 Fantasy Contest:
New South Wales-XI vs England Lions
5th Unofficial ODI, England Lions tour of Australia
Drummoyne Oval, Sydney
11th February, 2020
4.30 AM IST
NSW-XI vs EN-A Dream11 Fantasy Preview and Prediction:
England Lions will be raring to get back onto the field after the last couple of matches were washed out due to heavy rain. The match will be yet again against a New South Wales XI led by Ryan Gibson.
England Lions started off the tour on a very positive note by winning two matches against a Cricket Australia XI. After chasing down a testing 282-run target with the help of a century from Sam Hain, England Lions went onto finish off a nervy chase with four wickets to spare in the second match after Daniel Lawrence’s four and Brydon Carse’s three scalps helped the side bowl out the CA XI for a paltry 179.
Although a series victory would be sweet, it is never the main aim in these kind of A-team tours and hence England Lions might give players who didn’t feature in the first two ODIs a go in this last one-dayer. At the same time, the visitors can’t take New South Wales lightly as they would be playing with a number of BBL players.
All said and done, England should fancy themselves to wrap up a 3-0 series victory in order to move forward to the four-day part of the tour.
Unfortunately, the weather hasn’t improved and there has been heavy rain predicted on both Monday and Tuesday. On match-day (Tuesday), there is a possible 70% chance for showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours. Overall, the maximum temperature is expected to be 28-degree celsius.
The two Marsh One-Cup matches that were played at this venue last year turned out to be pretty scoring ones. At the same time, Mitchell Starc ran riot with a 10-wicket match haul in the lone Sheffield Shield match at this venue this season. So, a mix of both can be expected for Tuesday’s game especially with rain spicing up the pitch.

NSW v ENG-A Dream11 Fantasy Picks:
New South Wales
Jack Edwards: One of Australia’s talents to come out of the 2018 U-19 World Cup, Jack Edwards has had a mixed start to his domestic career. In a fledgling List A career so far, Edwards has registered one century and two fifties in 11 games. The youngster will be raring to make an impression in this match.
Daniel Sams: The leading wicket-taker in the recently concluded Big Bash League with 30 scalps, Daniel Sams will be high on confidence now and he could very well be a top pick against England Lions. Although Sams did well for Sydney Thunder, he didn’t have a great One-Day campaign for New South Wales. This will be on his mind as he looks to establish himself once again.
Sam Hain: If Sam Hain plays, he will definitely be one of the top picks from the England Lions side. The 24-year-old has been a standout performer in 50-over cricket back home over the last few years and his quality was seen in the first unofficial ODI against CA XI as he struck a century.
Daniel Lawrence: Another Lions player who did well in the first two games was Daniel Lawrence. Lawrence excelled with both bat and ball by scoring 85 runs to go along with five wickets.
