If there is a marquee clash in the world right now it is the India vs Pakistan game. The game has approached seismic proportions when it comes to ratings and the kind of interest and finances involved in the game. The next encounter is going to take place in the World T20 which would see another factor this time around. The Fantasy Cricket games have taken off quite significantly this time around. So, for the game we have here a dream11 team prediction which can help the fantasy players get better results from the game.
Team combination –
With the wickets being a little on the slower side and both teams having a good lot of players who can bowl well on those pitches, we would like to go with more allrounders who can bowl spin and also bat well. This is going to also depend upon the points that are allocated to each player so this is a speculative analysis
Mohammad Rizwan – Rizwan has been one of the top players in world cricket recently and has been doing very well as a wicket keeper batsman. He is going to be the one player who is going to be a thorn in the flesh of the Indian players
KL Rahul – KL is a useful wicketkeeper who is primarily known for his batting. He has a good record on these pitches and it would be safe to back him as an option who will be a batsman who can dominate in these circumstances.
Babar Azam – Babar is the best T20 batsman in the world arguably and has grown up on the slow low pitches of the UAE. Expect Babar to be the most successful batsman in the UAE and be the biggest prize wicket for India
Rohit Sharma – Rohit has done well in UAE too and is often the biggest player in the knockout games. The big match player has delivered earlier too in the India Pakistan match and will be expected to do so once again
Virat Kohli – Virat is a player who averages over 50 in the T20 format at a strike rate in excess of 130. No reason why you should not be picking him in your team. This is a player who needs to be in your team and perhaps be your captain.
Mohammad Hafeez – The veteran of the game has been known to be a success in the format and has recently picked up a 4-6 against the West Indies on similar tracks. This is a player who can deliver with the bat too
Ravindra Jadeja – Jadeja has been effective on the slower lower pitches and has become a great batsman lower down the order so he is definitely a good pick as a player in these conditions.
Jasprit Bumrah – The bowler is a star in the T20 game and often gets players out while they try to go after him. There is a slower ball that he possesses which can be fatal in the end of the innings,
Shaheen Shah Afridi – Shaheen Afridi has impressed on these kinds of pitches and he will be the bowler to watch out for if the Indians want to post a sizeable total on the pitch.
Yuzvendra Chahal – Chahal has been really effective on such surfaces and is going to be the lead spinner of the Indian team. He would be expected to bring his spinning game to be at its best.
Usman Qadir – He is going to be the dark horse here as an unknown commodity and it will be great for the Pakistan team if he can perform up to expectations.
