IND vs SL Dream11 Fantasy Preview and Prediction
As it turned out, the hair-dryers weren’t enough to gift some entertainment to the public in Guwahati. The focus now shifts to the central side of the country, where the Indians will be desperate to register a big win. They have a fantastic head-to-head record against the Lankans in this format, with India winning 11 among the 17 games they played. Jasprit Bumrah is back in the mix for India alongside Shikhar Dhawan, who hasn’t commanded his place back as ruthlessly as the former. Nevertheless, both these men will be in the XI and will pose immense threat to the vulnerable Lankans.
Indore always makes up for a pleasant atmosphere for sports and it’s a shame the city doesn’t get a chance to host events regularly. The temperatures are set to be under 25 degrees and the humidity levels could touch the 55% mark.
The Holkar Stadium isn’t very huge as far as the playing area is concerned. The pitch has remained on the flatter side in most of the games it hosted in limited-overs, which means we could witness a mouth-watering run-fest.
Probable Playing XIs:
Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Jasprit Bumrah
Danushka Gunathilaka, Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Oshada Fernando, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka, Isuru Udana, Wanidu Hasaranga, Lahiru Kumara, Lasith Malinga
IND vs SL Dream11 Fantasy Picks:
KL Rahul: Now we can see why KL Rahul was one player on whom the management invested so much time. Once he is in the zone, he is perhaps the most stylish player after Virat Kohli in this Indian lineup and has registered 164 runs in the three games against West Indies. Also, Rahul wreaked havoc on this ground when the same sides met in 2017, registering a thumping 89 off 49 deliveries.
Virat Kohli: The highest run-scorer of this format, Virat Kohli produced a couple of performances against the West Indies in Hyderabad and Mumbai which will be archived and cherished for many years to come. He also wishes to go up the rankings further in the shortest format as he occupies the 10th spot currently.
Bhanuka Rajapaksa: The 28-year-old is coming fresh from a sensational 96 against Dhaka Platoon in the Bangladesh Premier League. He hasn’t played a lot of T20Is but a healthy strike-rate of 137 should affirmatively confirm that he’s worth a position in your fantasy team.
Kusal Perera: Perera chipped in with 100 runs in 3 innings against Australia when the side went Down Under for a 3-game series. He is one of their best bets in these adverse situations to provide a match-winning performance.
