India – Fantasy Notes

  • There is a possibility that India could hand a debut for Mukesh Kumar for the final match of the series. In that case, he is likely to replace one of the two spin-allrounders.
  • Picking the correct Indian batters will decide how most of your leagues. We suggest you nail both Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer in your teams as they have experience playing here, while also being one of the top run-scorers in T20s at this venue.
  • Mohammad Siraj will get another opportunity to showcase his ability with the ball for a probable selection as a replacement for Jasprit Bumrah in the T20 World Cup.

South Africa– Fantasy Notes

  • Since 2018, Aiden Markram averages 20 against India and has been dismissed 17 times to spin while averaging just 18 in 24 innings. He was our risky drop in the last match, which did not turn out well. We suggest you keep him in your teams as a safety net with over 70% selections and his part-time off-spin could also be used against the Indian left-handers.
  • Risky inclusion – Temba Bavuma averages 40 against India in ODIs but his poor form in the recent limited-overs series meant his selection has dropped to 12%. A longer format should suit his style of play and allow him the time to phase his innings gradually. Try him as a differential, if he plays in this match.
  • Pick Janneman Malan as a differential in your teams! He is an ideal pick in this format of the game, where he takes minimal risks with his batting approach and is excellent at protecting his wicket against all bowling types. Since 2018, he averages over 50 in ODIs and also against spin.
  • Pick Wayne Parnell as a differential in your teams, particularly if he bowls first. If he gets an opportunity to bat, he will also provide you additional points as a lower-order batter.
