IND Playing 11 for West Indies vs India, 1st T20I; 3 Best Fantasy Cricket Picks for Dream11 Team Prediction


IND Playing 11: An inexperienced Indian side proved too good for the hosts in the ongoing ODI series as the visitors have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three match ODI series already. The third ODI is scheduled to take place on July 27 at the Queen’s Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad which will be followed by a three match T20I series starting from August 1st at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, Trinidad.

The Indian squad is much different from the squad that took part in the ODI series. Regular skipper will be back leading the troops along with other big guns like Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Dinesh Karthik, Rishabh Pant, Hardik Pandya. However, seasoned performers like Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah, and Yuzvendra Chahal have been rested for the T20Is. What will be team India’s ideal playing 11 for the first T20I? Let’s discuss.

India Playing 11 Team News

  • KL Rahul is unavailable for the T20I series. He was named in the squad previously but his injury and COVID complications means that the right hander will miss yet another T20I series.
  • In the absence of Rahul, skipper Rohit Sharma will open the innings alongside Ishan Kishan.
  • Deepak Hooda will return at the no 3 spot followed by the likes of Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, and Dinesh Karthik.
  • There is a question mark over Ravindra Jadeja’s availability for this match. He hasn’t featured in the ODI series so far due to a groin injury and is highly likely to miss the opening game of the T20I series as well.
  • Kuldeep Yadav will be the first choice spinner in the eleven in the absence of his good mate Yuzvendra Chahal.
  • If India opts for yet another bowling option, Dinesh Karthik might have to make way for someone like Axar Patel.
  • The bowling attack will be lead by the phenomenal Bhuvneshwar Kumar and he will get ample assistance in the likes of Harshal Patel and Avesh Khan.
