IN-A-W Vs IN-B-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
India B’s Sushma Verma becomes our side’s pick in this docket of our Dream 11 side owing to her expansive skill set, one which has seen her come out and open her arms with ease and amass a bagful of runs for her side.
IN-A-W Vs IN-B-W Dream11 Batswomen
The T20 format has been extremely kind to Priya Punia especially over the course of the last couple of months with the bat flourishing and thriving immensely. She’s going to be partnered up by Meghna Singh, someone who snagged the 13 wickets in 9 matches in the previous edition of the tournamnet as she ran through her opponents’ batting unit with ease.
Elsewhere, there was going to be one name who was going to be snared instantly by us from India B. The side’s captain, Smriti Mandhana has been in electric touch over the course of the last year, someone who is set to serenade her way a slew of runs on the day.
We have decided to give Jemimah Rodrigues a skip from the side owing to ther hefty price tag and wavering form against West Indies. Vellaswamy Vanitha was another viable opting from India B with 214 runs in her last outing but Singh’s role with the ball saw her edge out Vellaswamy on the day.
IN-A-W Vs IN-B-W Dream11 All-Rounders
The most heavily indulged in slot of our Dream 11 side and rightly so given the plethora of worldclass names lining up this ambit of the encounter. We begin with India A’s captain Harmanpreet Kaur with the player being a sensational bat, someone who has seen herself being held in high esteem owing to her clean hitting strokeplay.
She’s partnered by Deepti Sharma, someone whose spin wrecked havoc among West Indies’ batting ranks recently along with Devika Vaidya while India B will find representation in the form of Shikha Pandey. The stoutheaded frontline spearhead is an integral name of her side’s component, a quick whose innate ability to snare wickets makes her a must have pick.
IN-A-W Vs IN-B-W Dream11 Bowling Order
Her brand of spin has always been treacherous for the bats to get under the ball given her intricate line and length. She’s set to pick up wickets in this one as well as she entices the bats to go after her and hole out the ball in the boundary regions to make India A’s Radha Yadav our first name here.
Elsewhere, we have both Renuka Singh and Tanuja Kanwer represent us from the opposition, two names who are not only daunting bowlers and can send the batswomen back to the pavilion with disdain but at just 8 credits each, help open up funds to move in elsewhere as well.
Pooja was considered by us as well from the side but a lack o funds saw us keep her out of this one.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Kaur will come out to captain our side while Mandhana is our vice-captain.
