Fantasy Tips and Suggestions
Wicket-keeper: Perhaps West Indies' best batsman, Shai Hope has always been a consistent performer for them.

Nicolas Pooran is also one to watch out for with his attacking instincts holding him in good stead.
Batsmen: Two of Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma should suffice given how dependant India are on their top three. With Evin Lewis seemingly back to his best, he should be backed along with the likes of Shreyas Iyer and Shimron Hetmyer.
Allrounders: Although Ravindra Jadeja and Carlos Brathwaite have proven their worth time and time again, Jason Holder is picked as the lone all-rounder in the team. With the conditions favoring swing bowling, he should earn some fantasy points along with his big-hitting ability as well.
Bowlers: Mohd Shami is in decent form with the white ball this year and is a must-have in the side along with West Indian pacer Sheldon Cottrell. While Fabian Allen's batting ability makes him a worth-while option, one of Kuldeep Yadav or Khaleel Ahmed should suffice as the final pick in the fantasy team.
Captain: Virat Kohli wasn't able to score a hundred in the CWC 2019 and would love to start the new season on a high. Expect him to come up with a good knock while the likes of Nicolas Pooran and Shikhar Dhawan are also good options to have as captain.
Fantasy Suggestion #1: Nicolas Pooran, Shai Hope, Evin Lewis, Shreyas Iyer, Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Jason Holder, Khaleel Ahmed, Kuldeep Yadav, Fabian Allen, and Sheldon Cottrell. Captain: Virat Kohli, Vice-Captain: Shikhar Dhawan
