IN-G vs IN-R Dream11 : A repeat of the culminating league stage encounter sees India Red and India Green lock heads once again in the summit clash of the Duleep Trophy
After India Blue’s stronghold over the Duleep Trophy for the last couple of years, their reign finally comes to an end with the 2019 edition of the domestic tournamnet set to see a new winner. With India Red and India Green facing off against each other in the summit clash of the tournament, for either side this contest is a colossal opportunity to hammer down their credentials as a sublime unit.
This tournament has been all about India Red with the side topping the league standings after taking the lead in their two fixtures courtesy of a sublime batting and bowling unit which has stepped upto the mantle in unison for the side. After sealing their progressing by dominating India Blue, India Red continued in their marauding ways against India Green as well after scoring 441 in their first innings to take a slender 1 run lead in the first innings.
What saw India Green ascertain their spot in today’s clash though was their superior net run-rate, which pegged at 1.197, was massively more than Blue’s 0.630. With both of today’s opponents indulging in a tightly contested affair the last time around as the runs were poured down, expect today’s clash to be contested in a manner akin to that clash, one where the margins for a win are extremely small.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
All the three fixtures played across the tournamnet till now have seen rain wreck havoc with overhead conditions looming ominously. This fixture will be no different with rain promised to make an advent on several occasions across the five days, seeing the side winning the toss choosing to field first and make the most of the bowling conducive conditions.

IN-G vs IN-R Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With Ishan Kishan coming back for this clash after returning from India A’s series against South Africa, the India Red wicket-keeper is brought in by us as well. He scored good runs against South Africa A in conditions akin to these and should manage to get good runs in his encounter as well.
Elsewhere we have also gotten in Akshay Wadkar from India Green with wicket-keepers always a good pick in test matches owing to their heavy contributions with the gloves and Wadkar being a more than solid bat as well.
IN-G vs IN-R Dream11 Batsmen
After scoring a hundred in his side’s tournamnet opener, Karun Nair stamped his authority on the tournamnet, reinstating his exuberant skill set as a batsman. He’s someone who is imbued with the requisite application and technique to succeed in a match of such pivotal importance and should emulate his showings against India Blue today as well.
With 146 runs in the last match, we have opted for Akshath Reddy from India Green along with Dhruv Shorey.
IN-G vs IN-R Dream11 All-Rounders
His 126 runs for India Red in the previous clash against India Red pushed his side past the 440 run mark, helping them take a sensational 1 run lead, making Mahipal Lomror as the first player to make an advent into our side from India Red in this facet. Elsewhere with the four wickets and 37 runs, Dharmendrasinh Jadeja’s all-round show sees him earn a spot in our side as well.
IN-G vs IN-R Dream11 Bowling Order
The one thing which is a certainty in this encounter is the fact that wicket will tumble down at will. Not only is this narrative down to the pitch but also the fact that with only one full innings likely form either side, both the sides will be looking to pile on runs, something which could see the new ball bowlers and spinners stall the batsmen.
This sees us dole out a four man heavy bowling unit, selecting Tanveer-Ul Haq from India Green as the only pick from the side. Meanwhile from India Green we’ll be beginning with Avesh Khan who scored 64 in the number 10 position for the side along with the duo of Jaydev Unadkat and Akshay Wakhare whose offspin saw him register a five wicket haul in the last match.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Karun Nair continues to be our side’s captain while Lomror is the vice-captain.
