IND vs WI Fantasy Tips:
India: India head into their tour of the West Indies with more on their mind than simply winning a couple of T20. For Virat Kohli’s men in blue, it is a chance to pick up the pieces after a disappointing ODI World cup and put behind them the recent talks of the split in the camp between Rohit and Virat. West Indies and India played a T20 three years ago and produced real fireworks, with KL Rahul smashing a century off 46 balls at No.4. Indians would miss the service of MS Dhoni as well as Hardik Pandya, who has been rested and fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah will join the squad when the test begins. In your Dream11 team, you can pick any of the openers but we would prefer to go with Rohit Sharma after watching is amazing form in the world cup. Rishabh Pant would be the player to watch out for as he would play at No4/5 and has the potential to deliver the goods. It will be interesting which playing XI India open with.
Probable XI: Virat Kohli (c), Rohit Sharma (vc), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant (WK), Manish Pandey/Jadeja, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed, Navdeep Saini, Rahul Chahar
West Indies: Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard have been included in the 14-man West Indies squad for the first two T20Is. Andre Russell too has been named but will have to undergo a fitness test before the two games in Florida. Chris Gayle made himself unavailable for the series and will feature in Canada’s Global T20 League instead. Wicketkeeper-batsman Anthony Bramble, who has played 12 T20 games and 46 List A games, has earned a maiden call-up to the side that also includes Khary Pierre and John Campbell. This squad is a mixture of experience and young guns, but mind you, each player can will you game on any day as they play this format the best. From top order to the lower middle order they have got explosive players. Nicholas Pooran would be the player to watch out for them in this series as he is coming from an amazing world cup tournament.
Probable XI: John Campbell, Evin Lewis, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran, Kieron Pollard, Rovman Powell, Carlos Brathwaite (c), Keemo Paul, Sunil Narine, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas
