CricBattle Daily Fantasy Cricket League Tips 

India vs Bangladesh on November 3

 

After weeks of standoffs, strikes, controversies, suspensions and of-course debates around Delhi’s polluted environment, cricket will finally take centre stage as Team India host Bangladesh for a three-match T20I series. This is Bangladesh’s first-ever full-tour of India. In the past twelve years or so, India-Bangladesh have provided a better theatre of cricket than the traditional and much-hyped Indo-Pak battles. For the Indians and their fans, every time they see a Bangladesh-unit, images of Mushfiqur Rahim and co celebrating against the backdrop of a dejected Munaf Patel come to mind. And, for every Bangladeshi fan, it is the unrelenting desire to do an encore of what they did in 2007 or in 2015 and the will to shrug off the pain of every close defeat they’ve suffered, every time they face their Asian big brothers.It has been so close yet too far for Bangladesh in the shortest format of the game- be it the 2016 T20 World Cup encounter in Bengaluru or the Nidahas Trophy final. With India missing Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar from the set-up, can the Tigers finally pull off a win against the Men in Blue?

Best economical pick – Although an opening batsman, KL Rahul has been tried out even in India’s troubling middle-order. However, of late, he has tended to strain of late at the highest level. With a career strike rate of nearly 150, the 27-year old can counterattack at number three as well as can keep the scoreboard ticking through good running.

Top captains & vice captains – In Virat Kohli’s absence, the onus to shepherd the Indian batting will be on Captain Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan. The former is coming off a great Test series against South Africa and the right-hander would be hoping to shrug off what was a rare blip in the T20I series against the Proteas last month. His partner, Shikhar Dhawan, has also been in indifferent form in both 50-over and especially T20 format in 2019. Rohit Sharma has been in the form of his life. After earning the man of the series award in the Test series against South Africa, he will be back to the format of his forte.

Smart pick – With Shakib Al Hasan no longer available, the onus will be on Mahmudullah to not only lead his side with the bat but also with his tactical nous. The right-hander has led Bangladesh in 11 T20Is usually when Shakib isn’t around and it will be interesting to see how he marshalls his troops in such adverse times.

Cautions Pick – When Rishabh Pant gets runs, there is more talk about him than anyone else; when he doesn’t, still there is more talk about him than anyone else. He is that sort of character. With Sanju Samson breathing down his neck and pressure mounting with every underwhelming inning that he plays, can the southpaw turn his fortunes around when he takes center stage on his home turf?

 

My XI – Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan (Vice-Captain), KL Rahul, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mustafizur Rahman, Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Krunal Pandya, Shreyas Iyer, Liton Das
