Suggested Selections for Fantasy Cricket Team
Batsmen: Chris Gayle is one batsman who is going to be an asset for any team, be it real or fantasy. He is in a fantabulous form and should be a sure shot pick. Mayank Agrawal hit a half century in the match against KKR and also showed that he can face any kind of bowlers. Shikhar Dhawan’s performance against MI and CSK was remarkable and he is expected to be in form for a long time. Prithvi Shaw also had a decent opening in this season and is in good form.
Bowlers: Andrew Tye has had a good start this season and his swing would definitely come handy on this Mohali pitch. The fact that he was last year’s Purple Cap Holder is noteworthy. K Rabada is another bowler who can earn you good points. Mohammad Shami and Lamichhane would be a good combination as well.
All rounders: Chris Morris can be a good choice as he bowls Yorkers in the ‘death overs’. Axar Patel, the left arm spinner, has done well this season so far especially in the bowling department.
Captain: Chris Gayle or KL Rahul
Vice Captain: Rishabh Pant or Shikhar Dhavan
Wicket Keeper: K L Rahul would be a better pick as he has performed pretty well on this Mohali pitch and has managed 2 half centuries apart from his keeping skills.
It is important to know when you choose your fantasy team,there are certain things you should keep in mind such as the provided credits, how many teams you can make in one tournament, etc and hence making proper combination of players to form your fantasy cricket team is important.
Note: There are several tournaments in Dream11 and MPL SuperTeam where you are allowed to make more than one team and so you can have a dream combination and more chances to win. But understand the leagues and its rules properly before putting your team together.
