ZIM vs IND Dream11 team tips for 2nd ODI
Top tip: Best batter
Shubman Gill is the batter to pick as he costs just 9 credits. He tallied 120 fantasy points in the first ODI which was the most by any batter involved in the game. These give him an edge over Shikhar Dhawan. Given that Gill opens the batting, he is most likely to deliver again.
Top tip: Best bowler
Given the form Deepak Chahar is in, India are likely to continue with him in the second ODI, thus he becomes our top pick for this position. The 30-year-old pacer took three wickets for just 27 runs in the first ODI as he ended up with 89 fantasy points. At 9 credits, he should be preferred ahead of anyone else.
Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper
India all-rounder Axar Patel is an outright pick for this position. The 28-year-old has been in breathtaking form in white-ball cricket of late, hence it comes as no surprise that 87.93 per cent of fantasy users have decided to add him to their team for the second ODI. Interestingly, he also picked three wickets in the series-opener, ending the game with 107 fantasy points.
Lastly, Zimbabwe captain Regis Chakabva should be selected as your top wicketkeeper. The 34-year-old top-scored for his team in the first ODI after scoring 35 runs. Costing 9 credits, he is worth the investment.
ZIM vs IND probable playing XI
ZIM playing XI (probable): Innocent Kaia, Tadiwanashe Marumani, Wessly Madhevere, Sean Williams, Sikandar Raza, Regis Chakabva (captain and wicket-keeper), Ryan Burl, Luke Jongwe, Brad Evans, Richard Ngarava, Victor Nyauchi
