IND vs AFG Dream11 Top Picks

Kuldeep Yadav

The left-arm wrist spinner has worked hard on his skills over the last few years and cemented his place in the Indian white-ball teams. He will be a key bowler on this track which helps the spinners. Kuldeep has picked 58 wickets in 34 T20I matches at an average of 13.81. He will be the dream11 captain for this fantasy team.

Rinku Singh

Rinku Singh is emerging as the next finisher for the Indian side. With Hardik and Suryakumar’s absence, Rinku’s role will be crucial and he can take full advantage of being a responsible batter in the middle-order. Rinku has scored 262 runs in 12 T20Is at a strike rate of 180.68.

Mohammad Nabi

The experienced Afghan all-rounder Mohammad Nabi is our choice for the dream11 vice captain. He will be an important player on this pitch with his spin skills and handy batting. Nabi has played 112 T20Is so far in which he scored 1877 runs and picked 88 wickets.

Rahmanullah Gurbaz

Rahmanullah Gurbaz will be the key batter for Afghanistan. He is a power-hitter at the top-order and has good experience of playing in Indian conditions. Gurbaz has scored 1184 runs in 46 T20I matches so far.
