On that note, let’s take a look at three players who could make a significant impact and are strong contenders for the captain or vice-captain roles for this contest:
Ravichandran Ashwin’s scintillating performance in the opening Test, where he picked up 12 wickets, including a magnificent seven-wicket haul in the second innings, leaves no room for doubt – he’s a prime choice for fantasy teams in the IND vs WI match. Considering him for the vice-captain’s role in your team can boost your chances of winning the contest.
Ravindra Jadeja delivered a stellar performance in the opening Test, showcasing his mettle with both bat and ball. His left-arm spin accounted for three wickets in the first innings and two more in the second, while with the bat, he contributed 37 runs. Being a three-dimensional player, one can’t afford to keep him out of their fantasy teams.
Yashasvi Jaiswal’s Test debut was nothing short of exceptional in the series opener, displaying incredible stability and maturity. His sensational performance of 171 runs from 387 balls played a vital role in India’s commanding lead. Considering his form, you can trust him for the captaincy role in your fantasy team.
