After clinching the Test series, India now shifts gears to conquer the 50-over matches. The World Cup aspirations have the Indian team dedicated to finding the right combinations and preparing a well-rounded squad for the prestigious tournament.
On the other hand, the West Indies team enters this game with nothing to lose, having missed out on qualification for the World Cup 2023. All in all, they have nothing to lose and everything to gain as they head into the contest.
On that note, let’s take a look at the top three players you can pick as a captain or vice-captain in your Dream11 fantasy team:
With his red-hot form in ODIs, Virat Kohli is a no-brainer as the captain for your fantasy team. Furthermore, his extraordinary record as the highest run-scorer against West Indies in the 50-over format makes him an invaluable asset for your fantasy team.
Having played 274 ODI matches so far, Kohli has accumulated 12898 runs at an average of 57.32 and a strike rate of 93.63. His stellar record includes 46 centuries and 65 fifties, illustrating his sheer dominance with the bat.
Furthermore, the Delhi batter is on the cusp of a significant milestone, with just 102 runs away from becoming the fastest player to reach 13000 ODI runs.
While Shubman Gill faced some challenges in the recent series against West Indies, his performances in limited-overs cricket this year, especially in ODIs, have been nothing short of exceptional.
Gill has been on a tear in 2023, amassing 624 runs from just nine matches at an average of 78 and a strike rate of 117.51, including three centuries and one fifty, along with a remarkable double-century against New Zealand earlier this year.
If you’re assembling a dream11 team, Shubman Gill could be an excellent choice for your vice-captaincy option, providing a safe and reliable pick.
After a scintillating display in the two-match Test series against West Indies, Rohit Sharma enters the 50-over format with a hunger to sustain his exceptional form.
In 243 ODIs played so far, the ‘Hitman’ has accumulated 9825 runs at an average of 48.68 and a strike rate of 90.02 with 30 centuries and 48 fifties to his name.
For a reliable captaincy pick in your Dream11 team, he is an excellent choice.
