As both teams head towards Pune for the final T20 match of the series, the Indian team will look forward to clinching the series. The Sri Lankan team looked below par in the second T20I match at Indore. They will want to put in a better performance in this upcoming fixture. Here we look at the top five picks for your Fantasy team on which you can bank on (Fantasy Cricket Tips)–
1) Virat Kohli- Batsman(IND)
Kohli is called “the greatest batsman” of this generation. He looks the most devastating in T20 format than any other format. His 50 plus average in this format tells about his impeccable consistency. As he didn’t get much scope to make an impact in the second T20I match, he will look to play a big innings in this T20I match. He scored 30 plus runs in five out of last six T20I matches in chasing.
He also averaged an incredible 104.3 against the Sri Lankan team in T20Is. He should be the first pick on our team sheet for the Fantasy 11. Even he can be a good choice for the position of the captain in your team, as his performance will give maximum points to the players.
2) Lokesh Rahul- Batsman (IND)
Lokesh Rahul is one of the best players in T20 cricket across the globe. He averaged 43 and scored runs at a remarkable strike rate of 146. After a comeback in the India team, he looked in sublime form. He scored 40 plus runs in four out of last five matches in T20Is. He will be looking forward to owning his position, as the opener in T20I team of India. Dhawan is struggling again to find his mojo back. Rahul will be our second pick for the Fantasy team.
3) Lasith Malinga-
Malinga is known for his lethal death bowling and is called as one of the greatest limited-overs bowlers of all time. He took four wickets in four balls twice in International cricket. One of them occurred six months back against the Black Caps, to help Sri Lanka win a consolation match single-handedly. He will be the most dangerous bowler of the Sri Lankan team. Definitely he has a place in our Fantasy 11.
4) Kusal Perera-
One down batsman Kusal Perera looked comfortable in a second T20 match against India. He smashed three elegant sixes against the Indian spinners. However, he couldn’t make a big score, as he mistimed a ball on 34. He should find a place in our Fantasy 11 as many other Sri Lankan batsman looked out of form.
5) Jasprit Bumrah
Like his team-mate Malinga ain Mumbai Indians, Bumrah is a proven performer in the death overs. He went for some runs in the last over in the last match. However, it was his first match after his comeback from a back injury. He bagged one wicket for 32 runs in his four overs. He will the most important bowler for India team going forward. He should feature in our fantasy 11 as well and will give some valuable points. He can be an option for vice-captain for our Fantasy team.
