Top Picks for WI vs IND Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
The Indian skipper slammed 64 off 44 balls in the first game of the series and would be confident of his abilities.
Surya provided a good start to the team, with his knock of 24 off 16 balls. In this fixture, he would look to convert his starts into a big one.
The explosive left-handed batter has provided good starts to the team in the powerplay overs and can contribute with the ball as well.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
The talented all-rounder contributed 16 and scalped a single wicket in the 1st T20I. He will be useful for the your fantasy team in this fixture, especially with his late blitz.
Top Picks – Bowlers
He has done quite well with the new ball in the recent few months. In the first game, he bowled two overs and picked a single wicket, while giving away only 11 runs.
The lanky pacer will hold the key for the home team due to his changeups and yorkers. In the 1st T20I, he took 1/30.
Top Picks- Wicketkeeper
The experienced campaigner has been terrific in the death overs since his return to international cricket. In the first game, he scored 41* off 19 balls.
