IN-A-W vs IN-B-W Dream11 Fantasy Cricket Preview and Prediction:
The annual Challengers Trophy T20 Challenge for Women begins on Saturday in Cuttack. All the Indian international stars will be in action alongside some talented youngsters who made their mark at their regional levels. Many eyes will be on the likes of Smriti Mandana and Deepti Sharma, who have been doing a great job for the country and will be on opposite ends for the opening fixture of the tournament. Harmanpreet’s India A side boasts of some experienced Indian cricketers in their ranks to go with some fine young talents, which should make up for a great contest to kick-start proceedings.
The humidity levels in Cuttack will be as high as 87% on Saturday, with a great chance of some scattered showers to interrupt the proceedings. It will be interesting to see if the game can progress without any halts.
It remains to be a doubt as to how the pitch could behave, but going by the recent limited overs action we witnessed on this ground, the ball will come nicely onto the bat. The bowlers could have a tough time with plenty of runs flowing around.
No update as yet regarding any injuries in both sides.
Probable Playing XI:
Harmanpreet Kaur, Taniya Bhati, Priya Punia, Jasia Akhtar, Deepti Sharma, Devika Vaidya, Sneh Rana, Mansi Joshi, Meenu Mani, Radha Yadav, Bharati Fulmali
Smriti Mandhana, Sushma Verma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Anuja Patil, Poonam Yadav, Vanitha VR, Pooja Vastrakar, Shikha Pandey, Renuka Singh, Anjali Sarvani, Sushri Dibyabarshini
IN-A-W vs IN-B-W Dream11 Fantasy picks:
Taniya Bhatia: The Indian keeper-batter will be keen on making a good impression in this tournament. She played a lot of cricket in November and October for the Indian side but didn’t get enough batting time, something she could get over the next one week.
Deepti Sharma: One of the best all-rounders in Indian cricket right now, Deepti Sharma too has a point to prove having not contributed profusely in the T20I and ODI series against West Indies. She could produce a lot of points with the bat and ball.
Smriti Mandhana: Mandhana chipped in with 107 runs in the 4 T20I games India played against West Indies in the recently concluded tour. She has been in the form of her life and is a top choice for captaincy.
Poonam Yadav: One of the best bowling options among both units, Poonam Yadav too is desperate for some good performances before the big tournament towards the end of the year edges closer.
