IN-A vs WI-A Dream11 Team: India A look to emulate their rousing showing from the opening match of the series when they square off against the hosts for the second match today.
They were touted to win this five match series against the hosts an India A got their series off to a scintillating start after trouncing West Indies A. The 65 run win was as emphatic as they come with India A’s bowling unit upping the ante to deliver an exemplary performance in the series opener.
With the batting line-up surprisingly failing as it fell apart for a mere 190 runs on a bowling conducive surface which provided more than enough purchase to both the pacers and bowlers, the bowlers stepping up for India made for a pleasant sight. They bundled out West Indies for a shambolic 125 with India’s spinners taking the onus on themselves to leave West Indies in tatters.
Now up for the second match today, India A will be looking to build on the momentum garnered by them in that encounter and deliver yet another stellar display today. They are served by some exemplary players, names who’ll be looking to seal their berth in the main side which is bound to undergo massive changes after India’s fiasco in the semi-final of the World Cup.
While the scintillating form of West Indies bowlers can’t be doubted, it’s the batting line-up which is bound to push them back today as well. Their difficulty to play spin, extremely the wrist spinners is well known and with no proper guidance on how to tackle the spinning ball, we see them being put down again.
Expect India A to work on their batting and imbed a much better performance with the bat, one which will be perfectly complimented by the bowlers. This win should be another massive one for them, one where they’ll cruise to an emphatic win to take a 2-0 lead.
Wicket-Keeper for IN-A vs WI-A Dream11
Having replaced Rishabh Pant in the main side, it’s Ishan Kishan who we have opted for again. It’s not just the fact that he can score with the bat but with the West Indians bound to stumble in their quest while batting, Kishan is set to be among the catches and stumpings as well.
Batsmen for IN-A vs WI-A Dream11
We have opted for an entire trio from India A with Shubman Gill, Hanuma Vihari and Shreyas Iyer all coming in. Iyer comes in after becoming India’s top scorer from the first match as he took his time in the middle to score runs on a horrendous surface. On the other hand, while Gill failed to score in the opening match, he’s bound to score after a sordid display and we envision the opener putting on the runs in this one.
From West Indies we have the sole selection of Jonathan Carter. At a time when wickets became a rare commodity for his side, he kept waging a lone battle from one end to impress us with the perseverance shown by him.
All-Rounders for IN-A vs WI-A Dream11
We finally compensate with our selections from West Indies with both Rakheem Cornwall and Royman Powell being opted by us. At a time when West Indies batsmen are to be veered clear of, the two all-rounders are safe bets, players who are bound to get a good amount of points based on their roles as both batsmen and bowlers in the same.
From India we have opted for Axar Patel as the only option in this facet.
Bowling Order for IN-A vs WI-A Dream11
Pacer Khaleel Ahmed and legspinner Rahul Chahar are our two selections in this segment after snaring up the majority of West Indian wickets in the opening match of the series. With WI set to stumble once again, these two should get wickets today as well to leave the hosts picking up the wickets.
If WI have problems with the bat, India A showed that under pressure, their batting line-up can also make for an agonising viewing. And impressing us was Akeem Jordan from the home side, a bowler who left no stone unturned to cause jitters in an otherwise well versed Indian batting unit.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have opted for Gill as our captain for this one as well while Iyer is chosen as the vice-captain.
