Australia vs India – Top Fantasy Picks 

KL Rahul: The number 4 T20I batsman in the world KL Rahul is a must in your fantasy XI. Rahul will open the innings and, likely, he will again score a big one in the first T20I. 

Jasprit Bumrah: The Indian speedster finally found some form in the final ODI match. Bumrah was outstanding in IPL 2020 and he will undoubtedly be the dangerman for Australia with the ball in hand. 

Glenn Maxwell: The destructive Glenn Maxwell should also be one of the first picks in your team. He looked in ominous form in the ODI series and if India fails to dismiss him early he is again expected to be a game-changer for Australia. 

Josh Hazelwood: He was the best fast bowler on display in the ODI series. The tall Hazelwood just has this knack of picking wickets and putting his side in the driving seat.
