Pitch Conditions And Toss
The previous contest played over here a few days back showed that this surface is going to offer something for both the batsmen and the bowlers with the pacers getting purchase in the early exchanges and the new ball but the track eventually settling down. Anything above 300 is a sold score for the side batting first here with the track bound to open up and fall apart to assist the spinners.

IN-G vs IN-R Match Prediction
After an extremely promising and resilient showing with the bat and ball against a daunting India Blue outfit, India Red entire this encounter as firm favourites. Not only did they put on a healthy performance in both their innings but encapsulated their skill set with the ball to perfection to obliterate an extremely formidable India Blue batting unit.
The side should emanate the same rousing showing today as well and emerge out of this as winners if we have clear weather across the five days.

IN-G vs IN-R Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With Ishan Kishan out for India Red for this clash, we have decided to make an entry into the encounter with India Green’s Akshay Wadkar. He’s bound to be involved heavily with both the bat and gloves and should give us some good points in this clash.
IN-G vs IN-R Dream11 Batsmen
With 166 and 99 against India Blue in the previous encounter, taking his tally to a gigantic 265 runs, India Red’s Karun Nair is the first player we have opted for in this facet. Not only does he find a place in our outfit owing to the incredible display he put on with the bat but the way he waged a lone battle in treacherous conditions, becoming a pivotal reason for his side garnering three points from the match.
With 106 in the first innings and 64 in the second innings, we have also gone ahead with India Red’s Ankit Kalsi. India Green’s captain Faiz Fazal who captain India Blue’s successful campaign in 2018 is the first pick from the side with the opener having amassed hefty runs across his domestic career, a bat who has dismissed bowling units with disdain in the test arena. Dhruv Shorey will accompany him for this clash.
IN-G vs IN-R Dream11 All-Rounders
With Axar Patel out of this encounter for India Red given his participation in India A’s impending five match ODI series against South Africa A, the side are set to turn to Mahipal Lomor as their spinning all-rounder for this one. With the surface set to massively help the slower bowlers, we have picked out the left arm spinner for this one from the side.
A similar player comes in from India Green with us choosing Dharmendrasinh Jadeja due to his left arm offspin, one which is bound to perturb the opposition given the solid number of right handed batsmen in their outfit.
IN-G vs IN-R Dream11 Bowling Order
His side’s highest wicket taker in the previous encounter, registering figures of 4-45 makes Avesh Khan our first pick from India Red. Jaydev Unadkat and Akshay Wakhare come in as well after picking up 6 wickets in between them, the three for either player while the two wickets for Tanveer Ul-Haq before rain curtailed proceedings see him become the lone pick from India Green.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Karun is our side’s captain for this clash while Fazal is the vice-captain.
