USA vs BAN 1st T20 2024 Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Possible XIs, Prairie View Pitch & Weather Report



Last Updated on 1 month by Charbel Coorey

In a historical occasion, United States of America (USA) will take on Bangladesh for the first time in international cricket. Both teams have the opportunity to acclimatise to what will be very hot conditions at Prairie View in Texas in the first of three T20Is.

Bangladesh recently beat Zimbabwe 4-1 at home, but batting collapses and periods of poor cricket hamper their T20 progress. With their first 2024 T20 World Cup game looming against Sri Lanka on this ground, the Tigers will be seeking to have everything in order ahead of that crucial clash.

For the USA, this is a golden opportunity to make a statement against a Test-playing nation. They too have crucial T20 World Cup games against Canada and Pakistan coming up on this ground, so any opportunity to boost confidence must be taken with both hands.

Match Details

  • Match: USA vs BAN 1st T20 2024.
  • Location: Grand Prairie View, Texas.
  • Time: 10am (local), 9pm (Bangladesh), 8:30pm (India).

USA vs BAN: Fantasy Cricket Tips & Top Dream11 Picks for 1st T20

Top batter picks:

  • Najmul Hossain Shanto: The captain is a safer pick from the Bangladesh team as he seems to have the most set batting position. However, he is coming off just 81 runs in five games against Zimbabwe.
  • Tanzid Hasan: The opener recently struck the most runs in the BAN-ZIM series (160). He averaged 40 with two half-centuries in the five matches.
  • Monank Patel: USA’s captain struck 120 runs in three matches in their recent series against Canada at a strike rate of 169.01.
  • Steven Taylor: One of their most established players, Taylor hit 115 runs at a strike rate of 159.72 in three matches recently against Canada.

Top all-rounder picks:

  • Shakib Al Hasan: While it is unclear exactly where Shakib will bat, expect him to play a key role with the ball in day conditions against a USA side that is inexperienced against his quality of bowling.
  • Corey Anderson: The former Black Cap has five T20Is of experience against Bangladesh. He scored 129 runs at an average of 32.25 and strike rate of 192.54 in these games. He also took two wickets.
  • Shadley Claude van Schalkwyk: The experienced sll-rounder had a decent series against Canada with six wickets and scores of 15* and 13* to add fantasy points. He is four away from 100 T20 wickets.

Top bowler picks:

  • Taskin Ahmed: The vice-captain recently took the equal-most wickets in the BAN-ZIM series (8).
  • Mustafizur Rahman: Fresh off an excellent IPL campaign where he took 14 wickets in nine games, expect the Fizz to test the USA lineup with his variations.
  • Saurabh Netravalkar: The left-armer will look to get the ball swinging early against a Bangladesh lineup that could be susceptible to losing early wickets.

Other Players to consider in your Fantasy Teams…

  • Ali Khan: If picked, Khan will be used in the crunch overs. He has a wealth of T20 experience around the world.
  • Nisarg Patel: The all-rounder could have a role to play with both bat and ball. However, Bangladesh have a number of left-handers which could negate the impact of his left-arm spin.
  • Andries Gous: If selected, Gous is likely to bat in the top three. He scored two half-centuries in three games against Canada last month.
