Australia vs India – Top Fantasy Picks 

Ajinkya Rahane: The Indian skipper played a knock for the ages at MCG and will again be a crucial wicket for Australia. Rahane should be in your fantasy team as he thrives under captaincy pressure and leads from the front.

Jasprit Bumrah: With the ball in hand onus will be on Jasprit Bumrah to deliver and help India win the Test again. Bumrah will be leading a fairly inexperienced pace attack and he will be keen to pick wickets and put the hosts under pressure.

Josh Hazelwood: The fast bowler bowled a dream spell in the second innings at Adelaide and picked a memorable 5 wicket haul. He was below par at MCG but Hazelwood is again expected to be Australia’s trump card with the ball, hence he must be part of your fantasy squad.

Steve Smith: Scores of 1,1,0, 8 are surprising for a legendary batsman like Steve Smith but it can all change very quickly. The legendary Aussie batsman has a staggering record against India in Test and is again the dangerman with the bat for the visitors.
