IN-L vs SL-L Dream11 team tips for Road Safety T20 World Series 2022 final
Top tip: Best batter
India Legends captain Sachin Tendulkar could be a smart pick for the Road Safety T20 World Series 2022 final at 9 credits. The 49-year-old has played some eye-catching knocks this season, scoring 85 runs in four innings at an impressive strike rate of 144.06 and an average of 28.33. Tendulkar has already accrued 158 fantasy points and will look to add more to his tally in the final.
Top tip: Best bowler
In the bowling department, Sri Lanka Legends’ Nuwan Kulasekara could be the overwhelming choice. The Sri Lanka fast bowler has been the leading wicket-taker in the tournament so far, claiming 10 wickets in four matches at an economy of 7.06. Having accumulated 337 fantasy points, Kulasekara will be a great investment for the final at 9 credits.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
As far as all-rounders are concerned, picking in-form Sri Lanka Legends captain Tillakaratne Dilshan in any fantasy team is a no-brainer. Dilshan, costing 9 credits, has been the standout player in the Road Safety T20 World Series this season, amassing 181 runs and picking five wickets in as many matches so far. Dilshan has amassed a staggering 435 fantasy points - the most by any player involved in the 2022 final.
For the wicket-keeper spot, India Legends’ Naman Ojha will be the top fantasy recommendation over Upul Tharanga of Sri Lanka Legends.
