Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

Women’s T20I tri-series involving India, England and Australia has got off to a great start with the first two matches going down the wire. While the Harmanpreet Kaur-led side got over the line in the series opener, England prevailed in a thrilling super over against the hosts. Australia Women will now face India in the third match of the tournament which also completes the first round of games.

Meg Lanning and her side will be disappointed that they failed to chase down 157 against England despite a brilliant knock from Beth Mooney. India, on the other hand, will be delighted to see their out of form skipper finally spend some time in the middle. The two teams will face off in the World Cup opener as well on February 21 and this is the time to gain the psychological advantage.

Top Picks

Healy’s poor run of form with the bat continued against England. But she is the player you would want to have in your Dream11 Fantasy team. Mooney also got a crucial half-century (65) in the previous game and is in very good form. Perry, with her all-round skills, becomes a must-have player in your Fantasy XI. With the ball, Wareham and Schutt could make an impact.

Smriti Mandhana has scored 218 runs in six T20Is against Australia at an average of 43.60 and will be crucial for India again. Harmanpreet Kaur bats at four and also rolls her arm for a couple of overs at least which makes her a must-have player in Dream11 Fantasy as well. Rodrigues played well with the bat in the previous game scoring 42* off 34 in the chase. With the ball, Deepti and Gayakwad will most likely pick wickets.
