Fantasy Cricket Tips

Wicket-keeper: Dinesh Ramdin

Undoubtedly, Dinesh Karthik is a better player than Dinesh Ramdin, but Karthik might not get enough balls to play in this strong Indian batting line-up.

On the other hand, Ramdin will get enough chance to bat, so he can fetch more points than Karthik.

Batsmen: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope and Rishabh Pant

Rohit Sharma is a default pick. In the last match, he showed why he is India's best white ball batsman. He must be in the fantasy XI.

KL Rahul is a brilliant T20 player and is expected to open in this match. He can fetch some good points.  

Both Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope have not played any big knock in the series, but they are good players. Both of them performed really well in the CPL 2018. These two should be there in the fantasy team.

So far, Rishabh Pant has not played any good knock in the series, but he is an excellent T20 player. He is a kind of player who can change the course of the match single-handedly. 

All-Rounders : Krunal Pandya and Carlos Brathwaite

Krunal Pandya has performed well in the series so far. He can fetch some crucial points with his batting and bowling in the middle overs.

As far as Carlos Brathwaite in concerned, he has been failing with the bat in the series. He bowled well in the first match. He will bowl most probably at the death, so he will have a good chance to pick some wickets. He can contribute with the bat as well as he is a good hitter of the ball.

Bowlers : Yuzvendra Chahal, Khaleel Ahmed and Oshane Thomas

Yuzvendra Chahal hasn't played any match in the series but is expected to feature in the playing XI in the last match in place of Kuldeep Yadav. He is a brilliant T20 bowler and can easily pick 2-3 wickets. Since he has got the ability to take wickets in a heap, he should in the fantasy team.

Khaleel Ahmed bowled well in both the matches and will surely want to continue doing well in the third match as well. 

Oshane Thomas bowled really well in the first match and picked up 2 wickets. He had bowled really well in the CPL 2018 and was the second highest wicket-taker. He can be a useful bowler in the fantasy team who will use up less credit.

Choice of Captain and Vice Captain

Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope and Yuzvendra Chahal.
