T20 WC Europe Match 5 – Germany vs Italy Fantasy Preview

Of course, it’s India vs Pakistan in the ICC 2019 World Cup today but apart from that, there are plenty of other world cricketing events happening, one being the ICC T20 World Cup Europe Region Final. 6 teams are participating and 4 matches were played yesterday on Day 1, with another 4 scheduled for today.

Germany vs Italy is one of these scheduled games and these two teams recently played in a series of 2 T20s in Netherlands, where Italy ended up winning 2-0. Clearly, they begin as favourites again. Both teams won their opening fixtures yesterday on Day 1 and one team will get their first loss today.

0, 18, 0, 5, 14 – Daniel Weston’s last few scores in T20 cricket, but this was after he scored three consecutive fifties. Since he opens the innings, I will be picking him as my wicket-keeper today. The next you you 100% need in your fantasy team is Ahmed Wardak. He picked up 4 wickets against Belgium and then 2 in 2 games against Italy last month before picking 4/20 yesterday against Guernsey. He’s my vice-captain today.

Izatullah Dawlatzai has had experience of playing for Afghanistan before he made the move to playing for Germany, so he has plenty of more exposure. He hasn’t been among the wickets a lot but rarely gives away runs, picking 1/19 in his 4 over yesterday. Craig Meschede is a must-have as he has played over 70 first-class games in English county conditions and is among the most experienced players across both sides.


Nicholas Maiolo has to be among the first names in your fantasy team. Apart from being the highest wicket-taker in the recent series against Germany, he was also promoted to #3 in the last game of this Europe World Cup. He scored 39* and since he bowls his entire quota of 4 overs, he makes a good choice for captain or vice-captain. The young Michael Ross also displays brilliant all-round capabilities.

Rakibul Hasan is a Bangladesh-born bowler who has been a regular wicket taker for Italy, including 7 in 3 T20s before the Germany series and another 3 in 2 games in the series. Also ensure you pick the captain Gayashan Munasinghe in your PlayerzPot (Use Code “READ1234”) fantasy team, considering he is definitely in the playing 11; he picked a wicket in the last game against Norway and is alsoa  middle order batsman.
