The wait for the culmination of India’s domestic season finally ends today with the Duleep Trophy beginning the Indian domestic soiree. Competing for the trophy will be India Blue, India Green and India Red with the three sides clashing heads against each other across the ODI format in a league format ensuing which the top two sides will progress to the summit clash.
And beginning proceedings in the tournament will be last edition’s champions India Blue and India Green with the two outfits set to spare no expense in their bid to get off to a winning start today. For India Green today’s encounter comes bearing with it even more ramifications with the side having faced defeat in each of their match across the previous two instalments, massively disappointing in the tournament.
Elsewhere for India Blue, today’s encounter is also about reaffirming their credentials as firm favourites for the trophy. The side are heavily stacked with some of the most promising and upcoming names from India’s prestigious domestic arena, players who’ll be looking to catch the selection committee’s eye with a solid showing in this tournament.

Wicket-Keeper for IN-G vs IN-B Dream11
Opener Snell Patel from India Blue is our pick over here. With the eventuality of rain stalling this encounter a massive one, picking out players from each side’s top-order is the way to go for this match and Patel makes a good pick based off that narrative.
What adds value to his pick for us is the fact that he’ll also indulge himself in a slew of catches and stumpings with Green bound to be lose a hoard of wickets and fall apart.
Batsmen for IN-G vs IN-B Dream11
Having been named the captain of his side for this edition of the campaign, we have opener Shubhman Gill come in from India Blue for us. He recently scored a 200 in India’s test series against West Indies, adding to his runs scored previously in the ODI and T20 clashes as well. He could easily emerge as the top scorer for his side this year and comes into our side along with Siddesh Lad.
Elsewhere form India Green, we have their captain and opener Faiz Fazal be picked up as the first player from the side for this encounter. He captain India Blue to their title last year and will be relied on massively by India Green this year to resonate the same rousing displays with the bat which made him such a dependable player.
Someone who comes into this tournament having tasted consummate success recently is Priyam Garg with him being a part of India U19’s side who went onto defeat Bangladesh U19 in the summit clash. With 797 runs in the Ranji Trophy last year, Akshath Reddy comes in as well for us.
All-Rounders for IN-G vs IN-B Dream11
Both our picks are from India Blue over here with us getting in spinners Shreyas Gopal and Jalaj Saxena for this particular encounter. Intertwining their legspin and offspin, the two form for a deadly duo, one which will wreck havoc among India Green’s batting unit.
The two have also be elevated up the batting order if their side are in need of quick runs in the death overs, making them two ideal spinners to incur into our Dream 11 side for this encounter.
Bowling Order for IN-G vs IN-B Dream11
Pacer Aniket Choudhary is the first pick we have coming in from Blue as we look to rope in their entire bowling order for this one. The left arm pacer is going to love his time out in the middle in this fixture, getting the ball to ominously deviate away from the right handers, leaving them perplexed when facing him.
From India Green we have opted for legspinner Rahul Chahar and Ankit Rajpoot to complete our side for this match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Gill is our side’s captain for this match while Lad is the vice-captain.
