India vs Bangladesh, Asia Cup: Dream XI tricks and tips
India and Bangladesh will be tussling it out for the Asia Cup 2018 trophy when these two sides meet today. The two teams faced each other in the Super Four and India thrashed the Tigers. This time the stakes are much higher. For fans who are set to play Dream XI, here is our guide for picking the right team.
Rohit and Mushfiqur get leadership roles
India's stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma is our choice to lead the Fantasy XI side. He has been in excellent form with the bat and could spell trouble for the Tigers. In-form Mushfiqur Rahim will be his deputy. He is the voice of Bangladeshi side.
An experienced batting unit on offer
Rohit leads the batting show upfront alongside Shikhar Dhawan. Dhawan has 327 runs so far with 2 tons. Rohit has 269 runs under his belt. Ambati Rayudu lends further experience. He has played some crucial knocks as well. Bangladeshi senior pro, Kayes adds the stability in the middle order. Wicket-keeper batsman Rahim is another solid bet with 297 runs in his kitty.
Jadeja and Jadhav are the all-rounders
We go with two all-rounders and both are from India. Ravindra Jadeja has excelled with top class bowling and has picked 7 wickets. Kedar Jadhav has been a handy entity with the ball. He is a stupendous character with the bat as well.
A dream bowling line-up promises maximum points
The pace bowling is the highlight of this Fantasy XI. India's strike bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are the leaders of this attack. Both will come into this match fresh after being handed rest against Afghanistan. Mustafizur Rahman played a winning hand in the do-or-die encounter against Pakistan. He has notched 8 wickets already. We have one leading spinner, Bangladesh's Mehidy Hasan-Miraz.
