Australia vs India – Top Fantasy Picks
Rohit Sharma: The star Indian opener holds the key for India at the top as the Gabba pitch is expected to suit his style of play. Rohit Sharma is coming on the back of 50 in the second innings at SCG and should be part of your fantasy XI.
Rishabh Pant: The wounded warrior Rishabh Pant produced a magical inning on day 5 of the third Test. Pant stroked 97 runs in no time and helped India salvage a draw. The exciting batsman has looked in brilliant touch and must feature in your fantasy team.
Josh Hazelwood: The fast bowler bowled a dream spell in the second innings at Adelaide and picked a memorable 5 wicket haul. He was below par at MCG and SCG but Hazelwood is again expected to be Australia’s trump card with the ball, hence he must be part of your fantasy squad.
Steve Smith: The legendary Aussie batsman is back in form and India will have to find a way to dismiss him cheaply at Brisbane. Smith should be the first pick in your Fantasy team as he always saves his best when the series is on the line.
