9 October 2019, 9:00 AM IST
Reliance Stadium, Vadodara
The pitch should favour the spinners as is the case in almost all the grounds in India. With the city experiencing rainfall over the last few weeks, the pitch will tend to be on the slower side with 230 being a very competitive total here considering the strength of either side's bowling attacks.
Fantasy Tips and Suggestions:
Wicket-keeper: Lizelle Lee looks to be in fine touch after a sensational performance the final T20. While she is a very good option to have in the fantasy side, Taniya Bhatia's late order hitting is a valuable proposition as well.
Batters: In the absence of Smriti Mandhana, the onus falls on young Jemimah Rodrigues, who has had a fairly successful 2019 so far. Along with the Indian opener, the dependable duo of Laura Wolvaardt and Mignon du Preez should do the trick as well. If an extra Indian batter is preferred, captain, Mithali Raj could be a great pick for this game.
Allrounders: A number of quality all-round options are there for the taking in the first ODI. The obvious choices would be Sune Luus and Deepti Sharma, who was adjusted the player for the series in the T20s. Along with them, the likes of Marizanne Kapp and Harmanpreet Kaur should also suffice in completing the allrounders department for this game.
Bowlers: While Poonam Yadav's ability to restrict the batters with her accuracy and turn is a great punt in this game, the pace and bounce of Jhulan Goswami and Shabnim Ismail are valuable propositions as well heading into the first game of the series. As for the optional fourth pick of the bowling department, Ekta Bisht and Ayabonga Khaka, who has been fairly impressive in the tour so far are great candidates as well.
Captain: Spin bowling allrounders are going to very handy on this surface. This paves the way for Deepti Sharma and Sune Luus to be picked as the captaincy options for this game. If one were to pick a different option, the likes of Jemimah Rodrigues and Marizanne Kapp are worthwhile options as well.
