IND vs WI Dream11 Prediction: Batters and Wicket-Keepers
Rohit Sharma's love for Eden Gardens is known to all as he has scored 538 runs at this venue in 16 T20 matches which includes a century and 4 fifties at an average of 41 and strike rate of 144
Virat Kohli has a staggering record against WI in T20Is having scored 501 runs at an average of 63 and SR of 155 in just 12 matches. As context, he has scores of 100, 31, 0, 75* & 55* in his last 5 T20 matches at this venue (Eden Gardens)
Nicholas Pooran was good with the bat in the recent 5-match T20I series against ENG as he was the highest run getter in that series with 164 runs.
IND vs WI Dream11 Prediction: Bowlers
Harshal Patel picked up 2 wickets each in his 2 career T20 international matches. Also, in the recently concluded Syed Musthaq Ali Trophy (Nov 2021) he picked up 8 wickets in his 5 matches and thus is in good form with the ball.
Shardul Thakur has played 7 T20Is at home and in these matches he has taken 3, 3, 0, 2, 0, 2 & 3 wickets respectively and thus gives fantasy points almost every times he plays in India.
Akeal Hosein has taken at least a wicket in 11 out of his last 12 T20I matches (total 15 wickets in these) and thus guarantees fantasy points in almost every match.
IND vs WI Dream11 Prediction: All-Rounders
Jason Holder was the man of the series in the recent 5-match T20I series against England as he picked up 15 wickets. Moreover, he can be handy with the bat and can give extra fantasy points with quickfire cameos.
Kieron Pollard has scores of 68, 37, 58, 8* & 49 in his last 5 batting innings against India in T20Is along with 2 wickets in these matches and thus has done very well against IND in recent times.
Venkatesh Iyer scored 155 runs and took 5 wickets in as many matches in the recent Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy and thus gave good returns with both bat and ball. He also played against NZ recently in the T20I series in which he scored 36 runs and also took a wicket which is still decent.
