Rain couldn’t let even a single ball to be bowled in the first T20I between India and Sri Lanka at Guwahati. The teams now move to Indore for the second match. The winner will end the series undefeated and that adds to the occasion.
Both teams are looking forward to the T20 World Cup later this year, which means team compositions will be in focus. As the sides look to finalise their sides, watch out for your fantasy selections.
The return of Shikhar Dhawan and Jasprit Bumrah is the biggest news coming out of this series. That should be the flavour of your side, as the two senior pros are a must for your side. Bumrah will be bowling at both ends of the innings and looks prime to pick wickets.
With Rohit Sharma out of the side, captain Virat Kohli will have added responsibility in batting chores. Back him to do the job for your fantasy side. KL Rahul’s fine form makes him another special player for selection.
Sri Lanka Preview
Sri Lanka will be keen to forget the whitewash in Australia and revive the memories of a 3-0 win in Pakistan. Aggressive starts have been a hallmark of their game and will continue to be so. That means, opener Avishka Fernando at the top is a good choice.
With excellent variations at the death, Isuru Udana is one bowler you need to keep a watch on. Dasun Shanaka is another name that should feature in your fantasy side. The all-rounder adds good value to the side, especially with his big shots.
Fantasy Players to Watch
KL Rahul has scores of 52, 62, 11 and 91 in his last four completed T20I innings. With consistency his new middle name, Rahul is a must for your fantasy side.
Avishka Fernando has scores of 72, 48, and 26 in his last three T20Is. The hard-hitting opener can be very good with aggressive starts.
Jasprit Bumrah is a no-brainer in your side. With an ability to strike at either ends of the innings, Bumrah should walk into your fantasy team.
