After the 1st T20I in Guwahati was abandoned due to damp pitch. Its time we shift bases to Indore as Asian Rivals would like to start the year on a high. It could well be a cracker of a game with both the teams having some scintillating names in their lineups.
The Indian Cricket Team have a steady batting lineup with the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul and captain Virat Kohli. Wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant and opener Shikhar Dhawan would like to cement their place in the squad, with the T20 World Cup in sight.
The main concern for the Indian team would be the bowling line-up as Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur have higher economy rates in T20I.
Sri Lanka have a young squad with the likes of experienced Lasith Malinga and Angelo Matthews. There are some class players in Kusal Parera, Danushka Gunathilka and Isuru Udana.
Fantasy XI Tips:
First of all, it is crucial to select a team which has players who will surely play in the game. As they say in cricket, you don’t score any runs in the dressing room.
Similarly, a player who is not playing cannot score points for you. In fact, Dream 11 has brought a change in its rule by which you can alter your team even after the toss. Thus, you can pick your team according to the playing XI of both sides.
Secondly you need to pick the correct combination of captain and vice-captain as both of them if perform well in the game can fetch you points. Thus it is imperative that we select players who are in-form.
No fitness issues in both the teams as both the teams are raring to go for the first game.
Indore is known for being a batting track. Winning the toss and batting first should be the thought instead of fielding because the dew will be their throughout the match.
It would be a run fest with small boundaries on either side of the ground.
