Ben Stokes: The star England all-rounder is a must in your fantasy team as he contributes with both bat and ball which will help you fetch a huge amount of points.
Jos Buttler: The England wicket-keeper batsman on his own can single-handedly win an ODI match. Buttler failed to contribute in the last match so this time he will be extra motivated which is why he must feature in your fantasy team.
