IND vs ENG 2022, The Oval ODI: Hottest Fantasy XI picks, probables, prediction and more
India and England will face off in The Oval ODI on Tuesday. As both teams look to draw first blood, here are the hottest Fantasy XI picks, probables, predictions, and more.
After an entertaining outing in the just-concluded three-match Twenty20 International (T20I) series, which India won 2-1, the focus shifts to the extended version of the white-ball format. India and England will lock horns in a three-game One-Day International (ODI) series. The opening contest is set to be held at The Oval in London on Tuesday. Having lost the T20Is, England will be desperate to prove a point and look to establish why it is the defending world champion in the 50-over format. Also, the Men in Blue would look to carry the same momentum from the shortest format once again to outplay the Three Lions in their backyard. On the same note, we present the hottest Fantasy XI picks, probables, predictions, and other match details.
IND: Rohit Sharma (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Ishan Kishan/Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel/Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Prasidh Krishna and Yuzvendra Chahal.
ENG: Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler (c & wk), Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, Sam Curran, David Willey, Brydon Carse/Reece Topley and Matt Parkinson.
Batters: Rohit, Dhawan, Yadav and Root (c)
Rohit and Dhawan are the ideal openers here who would nail it, with Root being in sensational form, firing at number three and leading the side. In contrast, Yadav is perfect for number four to anchor the innings from the middle-order.
Wicketkeepers: Buttler and Bairstow
Both men are must-haves here. Although Buttler did not fire in the T20Is against India, he is known for his destructive batting and can turn the tide at any time. On the other hand, Bairstow has been stunning with the bat of late, making him sure to make an impact.
All-rounders: Stokes and Pandya (vc)
Both men are no-brainers here. Both have the knack of impacting at least one department while Stokes is ahead with the bat, whereas Pandya has been brutal all across, even on the field while fielding, making him Root's deputy.
Bowlers: Shami, Bumrah and Willey
In an all-out pace attack, which would suit the bounce surface of The Oval, all the three have been lethal of late with their pace, while Willey could turn out to be the underdog here.
