Introduction of various fantasy leagues has given a chance to all cricket fans to test their cricketing knowledge by making their own teams. And with the best players from the best teams being in action in the India Tour of West Indies, the fans will be working overtime to put their best foot forward and select players that can earn them maximum points.
With so many high profile players in the squad, the fans will be spoiled for choices. We are going to make their task a little simple by picking one batsman, bowler and all-rounder from each side that can earn them maximum points.
Picking players in the fantasy teams depends on a lot of factors apart from mere cricketing skills of the player. Consistency is a major factor that should be considered while picking a player in the fantasy team. Another important point to be taken into account is that the selected player should get maximum chance to score points.
So here is the choice of 6 players that must be in your every fantasy team throughout the T20 series.
- Virat Kohli
When you have a player with almost 2300 T20I runs with a phenomenal average of over 50 and that though with a strike rate of 137 in international T20, he is going to be your first choice for any fantasy team. India’s talismanic captain Virat Kohli is one of the best batsman in the world.
He has been missing the 100 mark for long and will be looking for achieving it in this series. He is also considered as one of the safest picks of captain or vice-captain in any fantasy team.
- Evin Lewis
The left-handed T20 specialist batsman Evin Lewis is capable of taking away any game from any opposition. He has 2 T20I century already registered with a lot of experience of playing T20 cricket almost everywhere in the world. He has an average of over 33 and has a marvelous strike rate of 164 in International T20I. For Windies he comes to open and get a chance to play 20 overs. So you cannot miss out on such batsmen. All of this makes him the first choice batsman from Windies.
- Ravindra Jadeja
Sir Jadeja have shown what he is capable of in the recently concluded world cup. There are very few who are capable of doing all three things in the field as best. Like even a bad day with a bat and bowl he will give you points from his excellent fielding. The zone in which he is in it becomes evident to take him in your fantasy xi. He brings consistency with the ball and aggression with the bat.
- Andre Russell
It’s not wrong to say Andre Russell is one all-rounder that all teams are looking for. He is capable of making runs at impeccable pace and can take the game away from the opponent in a while. He provides you with full quota of bowling at a medium pace and gives you wicket in difficult times. He also has a good record against India and will be the player who must be in your line up. And also a very good choice for making captain or vice-captain of your team.
- Bhuvneshwar Kumar
Bhuvneshwar Kumar is currently one of the best swing bowlers of the World. Bhuvneshwar has been the pick of the Indian team bowlers in the last couple of years and is set to lead a strong Indian fast bowling unit in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a lethal bowler who bowls in opening and gives you early breakthrough and then comes in death and bowls those unplayable yorkers and slow bowls. Also, he is supposed to bat at number seven or eight in the World Cup which means extra points for batting. So he will be the first preference in selecting bowlers for your fantasy line up.
- Sheldon Cottrell
The only West Indian bowler whom you can bet upon as he bowls those good areas and can give you points in crucial times. He will lead the pace attack of the team and will bowl in the opening spell as well as in the death. So he can get some wickets in death which can be a game changer in your fantasy line up.
