IN-L vs AU-L Dream11 team tips for Road Safety World Series 2022 semi-final
Top Tip: Best batter
India Legends captain Sachin Tendulkar will be an ideal pick from the batters section. He has scored 75 runs so far in three innings, with an average of 37.50 and strike rate of 156.25. The Raipur pitch is a treat for batsmen, meaning the Master Blaster will score runs at a good rate. With over 90% of fantasy players choosing him in their teams, the 9-credit player can be expected to deliver in this match as well.
Top Tip: Best bowler
India Legends spinner Pragyan Ojha will be the best pick among the bowlers. The 36-year-old has scalped at least one wicket in every match he has featured so far, including a 3/36 in the previous encounter against Bangladesh Legends that got abandoned midway due to rain. Hence, he can be backed to take crucial breakthroughs and help his team win.
Top Tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
Australia Legends skipper Shane Watson is a no-brainer pick for this clash. He has been in scintillating form throughout the tournament, especially with the bat. The 41-year-old is the leading run-scorer in the tournament with 209 runs at an average of 52.25, including a half-century. He can chip in with the ball too, having one wicket to show for it.
Naman Ojha will be our recommendation from the wicket-keepers' roster. He has been in decent form in this campaign as his tally of 53, 40, 26, and 41 points suggests. Selected by over 70% of fantasy players, the 7.5-credit man has accounted for five runouts/stumpings in total and is a handy presence behind the stumps.
