It will be mission ‘World Cup’ for both India and the West Indies ahead of their T20I series. The three-match series kicks off at Hyderabad on Friday. India are fresh from a successful start to their home summer. West Indies have been in India for some time, playing Afghanistan across formats.
India have made some personnel changes once again, but Virat Kohli is back at the helm. Spin will be the order of the day, as India look to finalise their slow bowling options. West Indies have been in India playing Afghanistan and will hope to make the best use of it.
Kohli has often been rested from the T20Is, so this remains a rare appearance. The Indian team remains a young one and most of the players are fresh from domestic T20 appearances. With the return of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, the bowling too looks strong.
Among the fantasy picks, Kohli takes the cake. Equally good to be in your side are the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer and Shivam Dube. Keep an eye on having Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deep Chahar in your side.
West Indies Preview
Kieron Pollard continues to lead West Indies in the white ball formats. This is an important series for the Windies, who will not have Nicholas Pooran for the first T20I. There is enough depth, however, to cover up for the absence.
Windies have some exciting names in their line-up for fantasy team selection. The likes of Fabian Allen and Shimron Hetmyer give options for you to get some points. Sheldon Cottrell’s variations give a good choice too.
Fantasy Players to Watch
KL Rahul has already shown his worth in the T20 format, averaging more than 40. He also had impressive scores in the domestic tournament coming into the series.
Deepak Chahar has been the silent performer for India in the recent T20I series. His swing up front is a great asset to your fantasy team.
Fabian Allen adds a lot of value to the Windies team with his all-round abilities. He can be your darkhorse pick for this match.
