The context of WTC:

Virat Kohli’s India will be hungry to beat England 3-1 and book a place in the finals of the WTC (World Test Championship)

Dream XI Predictions:

Batting Picks:

Rohit Sharma has been in splendid touch and has broken into the Top 10 batsmen rankings for the first time. He will be a hot pick at 9 credits. A big innings is due from Shubman Gill too and he can be a smart buy at 8.5 credits.

Zak Crawley looked in sensational touch in the first innings of the 3rd Test. He will be a great pick at 8.5 credits.

Wicket-keeper picks:

Rishabh Pant has been in great form both in front and behind the stumps. He will be a wonderful pick at 9 credits.

All-rounder picks:

Ravichandran Ashwin has done everything in this Test series. He has picked up a 5-wicket haul, scored a century, and crossed the 400 wicket mark barrier. He can be picked up at 10.5 credits. Axar Patel, who has picked up three 5-wicket hauls in 4 innings in his 2-Test match career. He can be picked up at 9.5 credits. 

English captain, Joe Root spun a web around the Indians in the last test. He scored a superb double century in the first Test. He can be bought at 10 credits.

Bowling picks:

Umesh Yadav is expected to replace Jasprit Bumrah. Umesh Yadav’s strike rate of 45 in-home conditions is next only to Mohammad Shami. He will be a valuable pick at 8.5 credits. 

Jack Leach, the England spinner has been their front-line bowler this series. He will be a valuable pick at 9 credits. The England team will be expecting a lot from James Anderson. He will be a reliable pick at 8.5 credits. Jofra Archer is an X-factor bowler Archer, he will be a solid pick at 8.5 credits.

StumpsandBails Recommendations:

Captain: 

  1. Rohit Sharma has been the best batsman across the two teams in this series. He will be a great pick
  2. Ravichandran Ashwin has been in sensational form in the last few matches. He will be a top pick

Vice-captain:

  1. Joe Root will be key for England, both with the bat and with the ball. He will be a hot pick!
