Fantasy Cricket: India vs Australia ODI I Preview


India vs Australia is blockbuster – not just for the quality they bring, but also the value they add. So, when the two teams take the field on Tuesday at Wankhede, there is a lot on the plate for your teams.

Australia will be taking the field in the ODIs for the first time since their World Cup exit. India, on the other hand, have been playing a lot of white ball cricket. Keep an eye on the returning stars in both the camps to adjust your choices accordingly.

India Preview

Virat Kohli has indicated that he might play all his three openers – Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan. While the strength of that argument is debatable, the selection of Rohit and Rahul for your side is a must. Shreyas Iyer with his consistent scores in the recent games is another good prospect.

Jasprit Bumrah’s return was low-key against Sri Lanka in the T20Is, but he should be raring to go against Australia. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja should also fancy his chances. Keep an eye on Mohammed Shami, who is one of the best exponents of swing bowling in recent times.

Australia Preview

The return of Steve Smith and the addition of Marnus Labuschagne is the biggest news coming out of the Australian camp. Labuschagne has been scoring runs for fun in the home summer and should be looking to grab his chances.

David Warner is another massive name coming out of the Australian camp for your fantasy selection. Among the bowlers, look no further than Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins. The two are amazing picks and so is Adam Zampa. The young leggie can be a surprise dark horse pick.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Virat Kohli gets the best out of his game when there’s a challenge. And, there can’t be a bigger challenge than playing Australia!

Steve Smith loves scoring runs and loves scoring them against India. He averages in the high 50s against India and will look to get that working in his favour.

Adam Zampa will have happy memories of touring India. The last time he was here, Zampa ended up with the most wickets in the series. Backing him to repeat that won’t be a bad choice.
