Top Captaincy Choices for IND vs AUS Dream11 Match

  • Virat Kohli: Virat Kohli regained his form in the recently concluded Asia Cup. He scored runs in almost every game and scored his much-awaited 71st century in the game against Afghanistan. Kohli has an excellent record against Australia and at Mohali as well. He has scored 154 runs in 2 innings and is yet to be dismissed. His highest score is 82 and his strike rate is 149.51 at Mohali. Kohli will be the best captaincy option for this match. 

  • Glenn Maxwell: Glenn Maxwell will be an ideal captaincy pick for this game. He will be one of Australia’s best players for this series. Maxwell is one of the most aggressive batters in the shortest format and he is a good off-spinner as well. He is in excellent form at the moment and is capable of winning games from any situation on his day. Maxwell will bat in the middle-order and may bowl a few overs of his off-spin.

  • Hardik Pandya: Hardik Pandya will be a very popular captaincy option in fantasy cricket for this game. He will bowl a few overs and will bat in the middle-order for India. He is one of the best all-rounders in world cricket. He is destructive with the bat known for hitting sixes and is capable with the ball as well. Hardik will contribute with both bat and the ball, which makes him an top captaincy choice.


Budget Picks for IND vs AUS Dream11 Match

  • Harshal Patel (7.0 credits): Harshal Patel returns to the Indian team after injury. He will be an important bowler for India, especially in the death overs. India struggled with their death bowling in the Asia Cup and Harshal Patel alongside Jasprit Bumrah will strengthen their bowling. Harshal is known for bowling accurate yorkers and using his slower deliveries to fox the batters. He will be an excellent budget pick.


Differential Picks for IND vs AUS Dream11 Match

  • Tim David: Tim David has been selected in the Aussie T20 side for this series and for the T20 World Cup later this year. He is a destructive middle-order batter and can decimate any bowling attack on his day. David likes to play his shots and has an excellent record against every bowling type. He has been a consistent performer in T20 leagues around the globe. David will look to well in his debut series for Australia. He will be an excellent differential pick.

  • Axar Patel: Axar Patel will be a top differential pick for your fantasy teams. He will be a key bowler for India and may get promoted as he is expected to be the only left-hand batter if Rishabh Pant is not included in the playing XI. Glenn Maxwell and Tim David have a very poor record against left-arm orthodox which increases his importance for the Indian team. He is a wicket-taker and will be a must-pick in your fantasy teams.
