Fantasy Cricket: India vs West Indies T20I III Preview

CRICKET - IND vs WI T20I III

West Indies brought to the fore their T20 skills to ease to an eight-wicket win at Thiruvananthapuram. The series is level 1-1 going to Mumbai, a place where West Indies have won the 2016 T20 World Cup semis.

Further to that, West Indies have the momentum coming into this match. India have been poor with their fielding and that puts a doubt on their chances for this game. The short boundaries and the pitch conditions make it a batting paradise. It should favour the hard-hitters, which are aplenty in the Windies’ camp.

India Preview

The second T20I saw India’s bowling go all over the place. The less said about their fielding, the better. Unless they improve on both counts, stopping the West Indies at Wankhede will be a challenge. With the series on the line, India will be looking to play the right cards.

KL Rahul had a bad day at Thiruvananthapuram, but he remains India’s best batting bet. Kohli will also be a good fantasy pick. Shivam Dube has been the surprise package of the series and deserves a look-in. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s tight bowling also warrants a place in your side.

West Indies Preview

It was a calculated performance in both the games from the visitors. The hard hitters Evin Lewis and Nicholas Pooran give an edge to the Windies. Shimron Hetmyer has displayed good maturity. All in all, the six-hitting ability of the visitors makes them a favourite.

Sheldon Cottrell and Hayden Walsh Jr. have been exceptional for the Windies in the series. Having them in your side gives good value for money. Khary Pierre has been the silent contributor, who could be a dark horse pick.

Fantasy Players to Watch

Rishabh Pant has shown with his two cameos that he is ready to unleash himself. The third match could just be the time for that.

Nicholas Pooran has been exceptional with his hitting for Windies over the past year. He can be a good pick for your fantasy side.

Evin Lewis keeps churning good scores against India. His six-hitting gives an extra dimension to West Indies and your fantasy side.
