WK: Regis Chakabva

BAT: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Virat Kohli

AR: Sikandar Raza, Sean Williams, Hardik Pandya

BOWL: Arshdeep Singh, Mohammad Shami, Blessing Muzarabani

  • Not suitable for small leagues; 4 default picks from Zimbabwe, rotate Indian players.
  • Richard Ngarava as a left-arm pacer can trouble the Indian top order.
  • There are 6 bowling options for India and there is a possibility Hardik gets some of his overs cut. Axar and Ashwin can bowl their full quota and gain an advantage to pick up wickets owing to longer boundary dimensions.

Melbourne Cricket Ground – Venue Notes

  • Average First Innings Score in all T20s since 2018: 157
  • Bat First vs Bowl First in all T20s since 2018: Win batting first – 18; Win chasing – 13

  • We can clearly see the dominance that the pacers have enjoyed at this venue. In the case of spin, wrist spinners have been the most effective spin bowling type at this venue.
  • MCG is the biggest ground in Australia and it has large ground dimensions except for the relatively shorter straight boundary.
  • For this reason, expect spinners to come into play as well.

India – Fantasy Notes

  • The fantasy picks from India are somewhat obvious; pick at least 3 Indian batters if they bat first.
  • Rohit Sharma has a great opportunity to score some runs and seal the team’s spot in the semi-finals.
  • Arshdeep Singh is a differential captaincy choice in this match as he has in been in good form and has made an impact in crucial moments.
  • Pick Bhuvneshwar Kumar in your team especially if India bowls first. He is selected in under 50% of the teams currently.

Zimbabwe – Fantasy Notes

  • Richard Ngarava has the ability to trouble the Indian top order as a left-arm quick in the powerplay. His spell in the powerplay along with Blessing Muzarabani will have a huge impact on the rest of the match.
  • Regis Chakabva has been in poor form but he is the best option from the WK section. Dinesh Karthik bats lower in the order and it is better to use that Indian spot to pick players with more fantasy potential.
  • Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza are the most reliable all-round fantasy options in the Zimbabwe team. They are also good differential c/vc in grand leagues.
