India Preview

The settled Indian top-order has done the job this series, even if Kohli flopped. KL Rahul remains a wonderful pick, thanks to his new-found consistency. It must be Shreyas Iyer, though, who defines consistency. Four 50+ scores in a row and ability to hit the big shots make him a very good pick.

India’s bowling is weakened with the injury to Deepak Chahar. That puts Mohammed Shami firmly on our fantasy radar. Kuldeep Yadav impressed with his control in the second ODI and can be a good choice too. There is a chance for Yuzvendra Chahal to slot in and if he does, watch out!

West Indies Preview

The visitors were brilliant with the bat and have kept the series alive. Batsmen Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran have been excellent and remain definite picks. Evin Lewis has just returned from injury and can be a good choice as well.

Bowlers do not inspire confidence, but one name that stands out is Sheldon Cottrell. His left-arm angle can be a game changer. Keemo Paul has impressed with his variations and can also be a dark horse pick.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Shreyas Iyer has done enough to make the no. 4 position his own. The Indian middle-order batsman is extremely consistent and can be a good choice.

Shai Hope loves playing in Asia and loves facing India. His exceptional consistency is something that should be lapped up.

Nicholas Pooran is one of the most exciting hitters of this Windies side. His ability to clear the boundary makes him a value pick.
