IND vs AUS Fantasy Tips

  • Rohit Sharma averages 59.23 against Australia in ODIs with 8 fifties and 8 hundreds against this opposition
  • Kohli has 5 fifty-plus scores in last 8 ODIs against Australia. He scored 78(76) at Rajkot last time around.
  • Since 2022, Mohammed Siraj has 32 PowerPlay wickets in the format, at an incredible economy rate of 4.16 in this phase.
  • David Warner scored a fifty in both the matches in this series and will be keen to get another big score in this game.
  • Mitch Starc has a very good record against India and the left arm pacer will be an automatic choice if he is playing.
  • KL Rahul has been extremely consistent and has got 2 half centuries and a century since his return. He will be the best choice in wicket-keeper section.
  • Ishan Kishan can be left out of the fantasy teams if India are chasing as he does not have a good record in second innings.
  • Suryakumar Yadav smashed an excellent half century in the previous match and can be a good captaincy pick in the grand leagues if India bat first.
  • Ravi Ashwin scalped three wickets in the last game and will look to put up another impactful performance.
  • Rajkot is usually a very high scoring venue and both teams have plenty of batting so make a team which covers majority of the batters.
