IND vs SL 3rd ODI Fantasy Picks: Prithvi Shaw? Hardik Pandya? Ishan Kishan? All of them turned out to be a flop pick in the fantasy teams as they failed to perform and take India to victory in the second ODI against Sri Lanka. Instead, it was a bowler – Deepak Chahar – who bailed India out of the tense chase and also turned out to be the ‘man of the match’ as well the ‘captain’ in the fantasy team for the second ODI between India and Sri Lanka on Tuesday.
Here, we will look at five such fantasy picks who can be the game-changer in the 3rd ODI scheduled to take place tomorrow at MA Chidambaram Stadium.
Five must-have Fantasy Picks for IND vs SL 3rd ODI
Shikhar Dhawan – Shikhar Dhawan is the safest bet for captain/vice-captain in the third ODI. The Southpaw has scored 115 runs in 2 innings and is the leading run-scorer in the series so far. However, what’s more, important is Dhawan’s playing style. The India skipper played an anchor inning of 86 unbeaten in the opening ODI and is expected to play in a similar fashion, dealing in singles and doubles and taking the minimum risk.
Avishka Fernando – After failing to convert his 33 off 35 deliveries in the opening ODI, the right-hand opener Avishka Fernando slammed a fifty in the second ODI. He has looked comfortable against both -Bhuvaneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar in the two games so far and is likely to give another good start to the hosts.
Yuzvendra Chahal – Yuzvendra Chahal is a must-have pick in the bowler section. The left-arm leg-spinner is the top wicket-taker in the series and is likely to trouble the Lankan batters in the third ODI too. In two games, Chahal has picked up 5 wickets at an average of 20.40
Wanindu Hasaranga – Wanindu Hasaranaga was the game changer for Sri Lanka in the second ODI. The right arm leg break returned with an impressive figure of 3-37 and can also contribute with the bat. He was the leading run-scorer for Sri Lanka in the England series, scoring 100 runs in 3 innings, which makes him a must-have all-rounder.
Surya Kumar Yadav – Surya Kumar Yadav has batted sensibly well in both games played so far and is one of the safest bets in the middle-order batsmen. Yadav returned unbeaten on 31 in the opening game and scored a fifty in the second ODI and is the second leading run-scorer for the visitors.
