England vs India 5th Test: Dream XI tricks and tips
India will aim to finish off their England tour in style, when they lock horns with the Three Lions in the final Test at the Oval, starting today. India lost the first two matches to go down 0-2, before bouncing back and winning at Nottingham. Then, they lost at Southampton. Here we analyze and guide the fans playing Dream XI.
Kohli and Moeen get the leadership nods
Virat Kohli has been in red-hot form with the bat and is sitting atop the scoring list with 544 runs from 4 Tests. He gets the nod as the skipper of the side. England all-rounder Moeen Ali is our choice as the vice-captain.
A look at the batting unit
Alastair Cook gets the spot given it's his final Test of an amazing career. His farewell Test might just propel him to score valuable runs. Cheteshwar Pujara, who scored 132* in the previous Test is also a part of the side. He is joined by England skipper Joe Root, with Kohli following suit. England's Jos Buttler is the top choice as wicket-keeper batsman.
Moeen, Stokes come in as all-rounders
England duo Ben Stokes and Moeen are the all-rounders of this Fantasy side. Moeen was exceptional with nine wickets at Southampton. Stokes has been impressive with both bat and ball. He has looked to put a price on his wicket.
4-man pace attack lends voice to the side
The highest wicket taker, of this series, James Anderson is the leader of the pack. Anderson will, once again, look to have an impact with the new ball. He will be supported by Sam Curran, who has also been in top form with the bat lower down. Curran has also picked crucial wickets. India's Shami and Jasprit Bumrah fill the remaining spots.
