Deep Dasgupta’s Fantasy Playing 11
Deep Dasgupta decided to go with two Indian wicket-\keepers for the series decider, picking both Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul.
He chose four batsmen in his playing eleven. Deep Dasgupta picked Rohit Sharma, expecting him to convert his starts into a big score; Virat Kohli is the captain of his side.

Ben Stokes is the sole all-rounder in the side and is also the vice-captain in Deep Dasgupta’s XI. Hardik Pandya has been overlooked because the all-rounder hasn’t taken the ball in the ODIs.

Batsmen: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma, Jonny Bairstow, Dawid Malan.
